(Hat Tip: Jim Maule.)
To avoid a post-commencement faux pas, consider these expert-tested do’s and don’ts when speaking with a recent grad.“You Should Go to Law School,” by Larry Kramer (Dean, Stanford Law School): "Many college graduates jump into law school because they don’t know what they actually want to do. Parents and friends suggest it because they think it’s a safe default. But a grad should choose his life’s path only once he knows himself well enough to be sure of what he wants. I think people should first spend a few years exploring to figure out what engages their passions. I ended up in law school because my mother pressured me to “do something already.” She wanted me to go to medical school but settled for law. I got lucky and stumbled into a field I love. Unfortunately, it doesn’t end up that way for everyone.
