    Default Back to school

    Well, with retirement just over the horizon (7 years from August), I decided to go back to school to get my Masters, then possibly look into my options to get into law school.

    I fugure since my twp does 100% reimbursement for school, why not get my next career lined up for when i retire (i will only be 50 years old).

    Figuee, why not become a lawyer and .ake some money and not have to work 30 hours a week. I can take on as few or as many clients as I want, and my earnings will suppliment my pension (50% of my salary) which I can start collecting as soon as I retire...

    But...

    Let me tell u, I still hate school and homework.

    My best friend is an attorney. While he plays hard, he works even harder. Too hard I think. Lots of responsibility. If he forgets something, the perception would be ďI lost my case because my attorney is an asshole screwup.Ē Iíd rather handle a man with a gun call.

    Sounds fun, and lots of cops become attorneys during and after their career. Hell, our Chief is an attorney. I say do something else in retirement. Perhaps work for LEOKA. They impact a lot of officers, new & old, and save lives.

    Retirement is only 6 years away for me, if I decide to go, which I probably will unless someone turns up pregnant. And being a big-dummy, with only a diploma and few measly college credits from the Fire Department (volunteer) I donít see myself doing anything else except turniní wrenches and playing golf.

    But you did say 100% reimbursement. That sounds really nice, not having a crap ton of college debt and you could do consulting or something else if you donít like working for Dewey, Cheatem & Howe ;-)

    Your plan sounds like a great idea to get your next career option off the ground why you have the opportunity to take advantage of 100% reimbursement.

    No debt at all, and I would only do it here and there to suppliment my retirement income. Between that and all of my investments I should be able to live a pretty chill life, because its not a necessity for me to work at that point... just something to do...

    You did mention that school is an issue. The issue I would have is that it takes somewhere in the neighborhood of 7yrs to complete schooling. Finding a second career can be a challenge.

    Then that would be more inviting with ins. Then I would soul searching and continue to work towards it.
