so i finally enrolled in school. now all i have to figure out is what i want to study..im so confused!
i could either get an AA in criminal justice or get a diploma and be a paralegal
pros for paralegal: course is just 8 months and costs roughly 15k
cons: very intense and can be overwhelming/stressful with so much research and paperwork and no interaction with others...which is kind of fine with me, but i feel like it will always be the same routine
pros for criminal justice: more opportunities, more advancement, different cases/situations all the time..theres lots of paperwork, but its not as crucial
cons: 18 months, costs about 40k which is a big issue for me right now
my mom really wants me to do the paralegal cuz she just wants me to start working asap
i think being a legal admin. assistant would def be fun and i would learn a lot. however, it would probably just feel like a job to me
whereas i feel crimincal justice would lead more towards a real long-lasting career
thoughts? opinions? which one do you think is better...what would you do?! WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?
