Many of my peers are heading to law school. It's a natural choice for those who want to be leaders. I was student body president at my college, trained to be a leader. I saw the challenge and opportunity of law school as a logical next step. I've spent a year and half working toward law school. I took the LSAT twice, wrote multiple versions of my application essays, applied to eight law schools, and got into some good ones.
I'm not going, at least this coming year. Instead, I've decided to work at a residential program for at-risk teenagers.
