i wouldn't go law school unless you are prepared to work for yourself when you get out. Even top students at top schools are struggling to find work; historically its the worst job situation ever for young lawyers in this country.

Been looking at the law schools here in Texas and they have typically good employment rates, such as 85-95%. Plus I won't have any debt coming out.

those employment rates are skewed. Grads working non-legal jobs count towards that number. Most law schools have employment rates in those figures. No debt is huge coming out, but like I said, you gotta be prepared to make a lot of sacrifices. Law isn't like normal jobs. If you manage to get into a small firm (which is extremely difficult in this legal job market) you are going to work minimum 50-55 hour work weeks on a salary which means no overtime. If you manage to make it to a big firm the hours are even crazier but at least the pay is better. Gov jobs are nice, but they are becoming more and more difficult to land as most local govs are cutting back their spending/hiring.

Hardest course for me was Stats.

Not a lawyer but I would concur. I have a buddy who went to cal-berkley for intellectual property law (considered the best? or so in that field) and he works 60+ hours as a drudge in a firm. Sure his pay is great, but he and his lawyer wife had to wait about 2 years to actually get married since neither one could take a break and they all have free time. Have another buddy who went to John Marshall for patent law (a top 15? program) and he got a job that worked him 70+ a week. He quit after a couple of years, couldnt get full time permanent employment (worked as a temp patent lawyer) and after a couple of years took a job as a patent clerk. Most of my friends with law degrees (probably about 20) are employed as lawyers (except for one mr. mom, who has a degree from Georgetown and worked for the nfl), but they have terrible hours and dont really like their life.

part of the issue is that so many smart kids were directed to law school (hey lawyers make money!) instead of the sciences or other fields. Now, there is a glut.
