      A professor is not feasible because it is a saturated market. I only have to remember to my days at UCLA when I saw all these mid 30s people clogged in the history, econ and poli sci departments waiting for jobs and working as TAs waiting for one of those old white haired half dead professors with tenure to die with one leg in the coffin already. That's the thing. If I pursued a PhD., I'd have to end up teaching at some podunk university in say, Montana. Most of the professors I knew started off somewhere uncool and did not end up working in the places they wanted until well late into their life or some were just unlucky. There are people in line, you know. Either way, it's not worth the effort.

      I don't think it's that bad Anon. It's true that it's nearly impossible to get a position at the major research universities right out of school, but there are positions elsewhere. I'm assuming it's similar with law schools... but with the most prestigious schools instead. At least in psych, I haven't seen TAs in their 30s waiting for positions. For us, either we need to have a very impressive publication history as grad students, land an awesome post-doc and do great work, or work somewhere else first. I'd be happy to go back to my undergrad institution when I'm done. It's more teaching oriented, but either I'll be content there and stay, or I'll get some more research under my belt, get a nice grant, and transfer out. That's my plan.

      Anyway, my dream job is being a professor. I love to do research, but that's part of the deal in most places, so I'm not listing it seperately.

      I don't have an unobtainable dream job. If I could incur, by some stroke of luck, a large sum of money, that would be fantastic, but I would continue to do the same thing and at most, just be less pressured to produce.

      Mouse, certainly getting the tenure can be a struggle, but it's also certain that those, who have a tenure at a university they enjoy working at, are truely lucky folks. A tenured faculty position combines career stability with the joy of making an impact on young minds, working in peace on interesting research and being around a college culture, which is more enlightened than most. The only downside to the academic career is dealing with snobs and fakes who are often the same people.

      Exactly why someone in that position would have all the incentive to hold on to it, which creates a saturdated market, as these positions become lifelong positions held by the people in question. Who wouldn't want to be in that atmosphere? I think it's awesome, but perhaps for another lifetime if at all.

      This is a service. Although, I could considering donating my services and take a tax deduction.

      They've gotta retire though.
      If you're good you can get those few openings at the best universities, but you certainy could get a position as law faculty at one of the 1000s in California.

      Just get on law review and do a good job. That's a good way to start. I do plan on "founding" a journal if you'd like to write for it.

      There is no such thing as a dream job...unless your getting paid to do your favorite hobby.
