Hello everyone! I have a new Reader Question to share. If you would like to ask a question, please send me an email. This reader needs help so please read the below:
I’m in debt and I was wondering if you can shed some light on my situation. I’m confused about what I should do.
I went to law school and now owe six figures. I had a mental meltdown during the last semester before graduating and had to take a break. Since then I’ve been working at at non-legal job that pays very little but on the bright side doesn’t stress me out.
I’ve made a tiny dent on my debt and at the same time have been saving up to finish the degree. But after looking at the money I’ve saved up to go back and finish a degree that I may or may not use (according to the news and statistics employment in the legal industry is at an all time low); I’m torn between using that money to attack my debt or use it to finish law school.
I’m not expecting you to make the decision for me, but any advice to guide me towards my final decision would be much appreciated.
What would you recommend this person do?
