Thesis statement

Why did you become a lawyer?

Because, unlike pre-med, there were no prerequisite classes?

Because it seemed like something to do after college when you could not think of anything better? Or,

Because you came out of the woom with neuropathways built to fight injustice?

I don’t think it really matters. Chances are the story you made up in your head about what its like to be a lawyer is nothing like what you actually do. With a few notable exceptions, how or why you joined this club probably has little correlation with your current job description.

What does matter is you are here right now. What really matters is what you do next.
