Episode 5

The Law School Trap

The college advice continues! In the last episode I gave some positive tips for liberal arts graduates on how to make the most of their lives and even to launch successful careers.

In this episode, I tell liberal arts graduates (or even STEM graduates) to beware of the "law school trap." This is a trap that lures many struggling college graduates into promises of a successful career, but many find themselves going from the frying pan into the fire.

A real life story and a fictional story hit home the wisdom to avoid the law school trap.
