“Tales of a Law School Dropout” is a nail-biting story about going down the wrong career path for all the right reasons. Everything Gina wanted out of life seemed to hinge on becoming a lawyer–helping people, gaining prestige, and earning a competitive salary. She is even accepted into the only law school program in Nevada. But as her world turns inside out, she fights to navigate the pressure of higher education while she is encumbered by a crazy roommate and cascading self-esteem. Would it be considered a failure to give up? Or is admitting that you aren’t supposed to be a lawyer truly a failure?
