Law school or CS

Recommended Posts

I have been accepted to both UBC CS (two year program) and U of T law school.

Which one should I pursue as a career, considering the potential pay and lifestyle?

I already have a bachelor's degree in healthcare. 

 

Thanks!

You probably benefit more from practicing law when getting older, but suffer more as you age being a programmer.

Most people here want to be lawyers, so needless to say that the responses are likely biased. And as you probably already know, that's not a question anyone here can answer for you. What do you want to spend the next 40 years doing? There's opportunity for career success in either field. Whether you become successful is largely determined by how committed you are to the field. 

Good luck doing whatever you choose :) 

Also, if that's too much of a stock answer, all of my friends in comp sci got jobs immediately and are doing incredibly well for themselves. Their jobs are also super laid back and can work a lot from home. Personally, it would bore the piss out of me, but if it's what floats your boat, then go for it.
