    80k is fair.

    120k after dental school.

    law school seems fairly easy, maybe I'm trippin.

    Me too..

    "kay so, from what I hear, attorneys are a dime a dozen.

    Also, look at the UCLA school of law's profile of graduated students. A nice percentage secured employment within 9 months of graduating and there are ample salary charts to take a look at as well.

    There, their, they're; there is a difference.

    Now you're considering law school? :P

    Honestly, there are enough unhappy lawyers in the business already, don't go into it because you think it'll be easy or making six figures.

    @Indie & killmy: Thank goodness, I was going crazy reading it too. Considering going to law school but not being able to differentiate between their and there? Long road ahead buddy.

    ^oh s t f u, it is not that serious. I just recently got an A in the final english course in the english sequence. I am fine.

    stay on topic or don't contribute.

    their and there, homophones,homonyms, whatever they are, are popular words to confuse. stupid broken english system.

    *edit*

    what do you mean going crazy? i only wrote "their" when i guess it should have been there, once. maybe who you should direct your over exaggerated, lame reply to is ryan, he's the one 0/2. even still it's not like its a paragraph of habitual use of the word. go fly off a cliff.

    LOLOL^

    and here's my contribution: my dad told me that law schools tend to "fudge the numbers" when it comes to the employment stats of their students. maybe because employment is a big part of rankings? idk. i feel like i should do more research on this topic though.....eventually...

    :)

    Hey guys, what career will allow me to perform with mediocrity because I can't imagine having to beat out other people for jobs that pay ridiculous amounts of money.
