So, I just got back my graded Business Law final. My instructor seems to think that I might have a future in law. We were offered the chance to earn some bonus points by answering a question off the bar exam. Part of the material in the question was things that we hadn't even covered in class. I ended the class with a 102% this semester. The first semester was like 108%. My instructor would like to meet to discuss my options.
Gosh, I really don't know what to do. Even when I was little, that was something I wanted to do. I never thought it was really a possibility though. I struggle a bit with self esteem, and to be honest, I never thought I was smart enough before. Now..... I don't know..... it almost seems possible. At the same time, I feel like it would be a selfish move. It would mean being in school a lot longer than I originally planned, and it would mean A LOT more expense than I planned for. I almost feel like I would be cheating my kids because I would need to be so focused on school, and they would be out of the house before they could ever benefit from the benefits of pursuing a law career.
My big thing is that I already feel like I have robbed them because I spent so much time as a single mom working tons of hours at multiple jobs trying to support them. I know I did what had to be done, but I feel like they suffered because they didn't get much time with me when they were little. Now they are older, and I am thinking about 'running away' to law school. I just hope that when they are older, they understand why I had to spend so much time at work or at school.
Well, I think my current plan (which ironically lands me in school for even longer!) is that I will continue as planned, getting my A.S. in Accounting and Business Administration, transfer to AIB where I will get my B.S. in Accounting and Business Administration (which will give me enough credit hours to sit for the CPA exam). At that point, I will likely find a job for a year or two while DH finishes school, and then I will go back to law school for a joint J.D. and a M.B.A. It's going to be a very long road and require a lot of hard work, but I'm excited about it. I just wish I would have started it 10 years ago!
