    Do not go to law school. I have been out 25 years and I will be lucky to gross 35k this year. I know many attorneys who are more skilled than me, "walking the streets." The Illinois Secretary of State in MT Vernon, a rural town, advertised two openings for Hearing Officers, part time, for DL matters. They received 4000 THOUSAND applications. Folks are desperate for work, as I. There are more attorneys in my community than Wal-Mart workers.
