Law School

Law School

It is a well-known story that a guy decided to enroll in law school “because he couldn’t stand the sight of blood.” However, most people do not attend law school because they didn’t feel like going to medical school, but because of the advantages a law degree can offer.

Almost anyone, from artists to engineers, can benefit from a law degree, and it can be an extra feather in their cap when it comes to applying for work or to promoting or advancing their current skills. Others pursue various types of lawyering part-time while engaged in other professions such as teaching or the arts.

Going to law school is great for someone who wants something to fall back on, but those who succeed in law school are often those who have a true passion for the subject. Although half-hearted law students might pass the bar, the rigors involved in law school, especially in the first year, usually allow the most sincere students to thrive.

Medical School

Medical School

Medical school may not be for everyone, but those who decide to make the big leap are usually pretty certain that they want to become doctors, or at least to graduate. The drop-out rate from medical school, unlike law school, is pretty low, and this indicates that many of those who enter medical school are prepared for the work ahead of them.

The medical career is one of the most rewarding professions, since it literally affects the lives of many people. A significant amount of work goes into this profession, and most of those who have the ability to get into medical school in the first place have the willingness to meet the challenge.

How do you know if medical school is right for you? The medical profession is one that combines detailed scientific knowledge with the human touch and compassion for others. If one of these qualities is lacking, then one might be better of being a scientist or to study the humanities.
