I don't think many practicing attorneys, especially recent grads could tell you to look into law with a straight face.
Agreed. It's nice to think you'll go into law school and come out and change the world, but it doesn't work like that for the majority of us - in all likelihood, you'll take whatever job you can get, and be overworked and underpaid for the first several years, all without any sense of making even the slightest bit of difference in the world. But, as in most fields, there is money to be made out there if you can find it.
I have to think you don't bring the work home with you like you would as a lawyer.
This is also important. You will never really "leave" work again.
