So I'm graduating from law school in about a month. It's too late to just leave now, so I'm going to finish it. I hated every minute of it. And everywhere I read, the job market is horrendous for lawyers, despite the (slow) recovery. I've always wanted to be a programmer, and the current growth of the iPhone/iPad made me want it even more. I'm going to take advantage of the (currently) incredibly cheap tuition in California for community college ($20 per credit!). Yes, it'll add years more of school (ugh), but I'll 1) learn skills I actually want to use, and 2) am gonna be unemployed anyway, so who cares? But the question right now is, should I take the bar? That comes with the time and expense (BarBri, etc), and the expense of maintaining my membership, going to continuing education to keep my bar membership. Is it worth it?
