Thank you for your responses. I currently have a full time job that pays me $3000 and a business that makes me $2000 on the low end and $4000 on the high end per month. All figures are in net.
When I start law school in September I will be quitting my full time job which will bring my monthly income down too 2000-4000 per month. (Yes I can continue the business while in school, I have trusted employees and I’ve gotten used to studying and working throughout my undergrad.)
One of the major reasons why I’ve even decided to go to law school in the first place is because I come from a family that highly values education over money. Having only a undergraduate degree is highly looked down upon, hence I have a very high motivation to pursue higher education. i understand there is a high monetary opportunity cost to pursuing law school, but I believe the non monetary utility from becoming a lawyer will make up for it somewhat.
My realistic goal is to bring my base employment income up from 3000 now to Atleast 4500 after becoming a lawyer. That way with my business combined, all else equal I can bring my income to 6500-8500 post graduation (within a couple years).
Thank you guys for recommending personal injury law. That is not an area of law I have given thought too, but I will definitely look more into it now.
