I don't wish to offend anyone, but does anyone really care why people want to do Law? Can't we all just assume it's for the money

Nah, it's fun watching the young'uns conjure up all sorts of outlandish reasons

Favourite one from the 2016 thread was that someone's relative apparently died of something and the applicant wanted to get 'revenge' (which makes PI work sound very sexy actually)

At least the applicant was 'passionate'.

They should have gone into the waste management business, like Tony Soprano

in the same way your homicidal ex is 'passionate' about slitting your throat while you sleep

I am disturbed that you came up with that. More sleep is needed, I think.

I'm slightly hungover and I'm dealing with an ignoramus in another thread
Got my 6 hours of sleep last night

tbh, decided to apply for law because didn't really know what else to do with my subjects (History, English Lit, Economics). Was dissuaded from studying English, wasn't sure what I wanted to do for a job in the future and thought Law was a broad enough and interesting enough degree to go down any employment route. Getting on training contracts post-degree is tough and many can't get one, so I don't think we can assume that we'll all be rich lawyers.
Good reason, wonder how that'll go down on a PS

One can always dream of getting the riches...

I like your realism. Do you mind sharing your grades/predicted grades and where you are thinking about applying?

University choices: Dundee, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Aberdeen, Edinburgh
What subjects are you studying?: Scots law or Scots and English Law
LNAT: not done yet
Predicted grades: AAAAA (Scottish Highers)
National 5 grades: AAAAAAA
Why law?: wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do so I looked online and law matched the subjects I’m best at (social subjects). Went to some taster days, mooting days, student shadowing and work experience in the holidays and came to the conclusion that it’s the course for me!

I dunno... Sometimes it takes them a little while to realise that it's just for the money.

I was one of those that kidded myself that I actually enjoyed it until I actually started studying it at degree level :lol:

I wasn't being serious, sorry I have a terrible habit of thinking people should be able to tell when I am trying to be 'funny'. I should stop.

Where are you applying to this year then?
Good luck!

You're under-selling yourself

You just need to get the hang of the Law forum which I’m sure you soon will

I love to hear pages of drivel on the motivations of kids to do law, invariably and primarily because they watched Suits
