A lawyer or a psychologist?
What if a girl has a law degree but she doesn't practice law and works as a psychologist or guidance counselor?
Which would be more appealing?
My law degree is not costing me a lot of money and I am too far in the program to drop out (basically dropping out would be more of a waste than finishing) but I don't want to practice law. I hate the confrontational and hostile nature and the pressure. I am more of a gentle emotional person and psychology has always been my passion but I never pursued it and now I want to pursue it when I get my law degree.
But neither one is a lawyer and they are going by prestige more than reality. I hate law more than I thought and I am way more passionate about psychology, it also fits my nature better.

The law degree will come in handy with patients who threaten lawsuits, and maybe you can go into professional liability law, which is somewhat less confrontational than other branches.
But when you find you have decided on your true interests, don't hesitate to pursue them.
Mostly, guys want to date those who have their act together, and aren't doing something they aren't suited for. That's a recipe for depression and bad relationships.
Go for what you love, whether in your studies or in yur personal life.0
