Thought about throwing out a press release on this, but I hear they’re dead. So…here it is. I’m officially announcing the launch of Yuspie’s brand new book (authored by moi) – to help you potentially avoid one of the biggest mistakes of your life!
Yes, we’ve officially released Law School: A Few Short and Plain Statements. This book chronicles one law school student’s journey through law school part time at night, while working full time.
If you’re thinking about going back to law school, you need to read this book. There are tips on what to think through BEFORE you head back to school–and I want to personally help you as founder of this company and as author of this book, to avoid making dumb mistakes that some others may have before they went back to law school.
Here are some general tips – free o’ charge, because I’m that fired up about ensuring you make the best decision possible FOR YOU:
1. The money - do you have the tuition in the bank, ready to rock? The average school costs anywhere between $12-50K PER YEAR. If you don’t have the money, better get a scholarship. Otherwise, I’m here to tell you, there’s no pot of gold for you waiting at the end…don’t go into loan debt over law school right now. I have friends 6-figures in debt from going to law school, and they STILL don’t have jobs after passing the bar last fall.
2. The time - do you have it? I am the LAST person on the planet that would advocate anyone going back to law school full time. I just think that is one of the dumbest things anyone on this planet can do right now. So, that leaves part time. Do you have time for all that? Seriously, if you’re going to hold down a full-time day job and rock law school 3-4 years at night, do you really have that kind of time to dedicate to it?
3. The support from the day job - First, you will have a full time day job if you’re reading this, because I warned you not to go back to school full time…so next you have to ask: is my employer going to support my wacky life for the next 4 years? If you for example travel in your day job a lot, is your boss going to be cool with you bailing on travel time because you have to haul it over to class every night? You need to have a frank discussion with your boss on this one. Better yet, does your proposed craziness of law school supplement your day job? If it does, great. If not, what are you doing? How are you going to sell that to your boss as a BENEFIT to your work.
Look–I’m not saying don’t go to law school in this book (although, that might not be bad advice for a lot of people.) BUT–instead, I want to help make darn sure you fully know what you’re stepping into before you sign your life away for a few years. Really – I’m looking out for Y-O-U!

We’ve got a Faceplace fanpage for it too, and because I’m serious about you being successful in choosing a smart graduate program for yourself, here’s a mini taste/preview of the book. And for all my law school homies – MUCH LOVE – you’re one of the BEST THINGS I got out of school with you – MWAH!
