Your post-St. Bonaventure plans are a serious business of infinite possibilities, rather unlike the high school transition when you never really doubted you'd simply continue your education at one college or the other. While the decision to attend any graduate school is a big one, law school in particular seems especially so given its length (three years), expense ($35,000 + a year is not uncommon) and now more than ever, no guarantee of a happily-ever-after life style.
The decision to study law following graduation from St. Bonaventure is one that you want to make only after solid self-assessment and occupational research. A "default" decision---made just because nothing else appeals---is the weakest of the rationales. At best, it seems risky to your future happiness if you put yourself through the whole application process and don't feel reasonably confident that a legal education is a comfortable fit.
One of the Center for Law & Society advisor’s jobs is to act as an information resource and clearinghouse. We don't think you can have too much information about the important decisions of career choice. To get a better sense of what lawyers do, research the profession, talk to lawyers and ask questions.
