Speaking as a lawyer, if you want to be one, go see a psychiatrist!

But, if undeterred, its generally like this:

Undergraduate college degree (bachelors degree) in most any discipline; I happen to think a liberal arts degree serves you well in preparing you for the mental exercises of law school, but an appropriate technical degree could be good too if you had a particular area of the law you wanted to be able to specialize in. Get good grades.

Take the LSAT exam (don't forget to spend a fortune on prep courses).

Then, on to three years of law school at the law school of your choice, unless your grades and LSAT score won't support it, inwhich case, on to three years of law school at the law school that'll have you.

The spend another fortune on prep courses to cram stuff into your head so you can pass the bar exam in your chosen state.

Then pass the exam.

Then ask yourself: "I did WHAT??!!" when you wake up and realize that you're a lawyer.

Real Estate Agent: Graduate from high school, enroll in real-estate school. Three weeks later, you are a real-estate agent. Congratulations.

Lawyer: Graduate from high school, and go to college. Work really hard in college and get good grades. Choose a major that prepares you with good communication skills and persuasive argument skills, such as english, political science, communication, etc. Apply to law school, and accept. When you graduate, you will have a J.D. (Juris Doctorate)

Psychiatrist: Graduate from high school. Go to college, and major in pre-medicine, or at least something that allows you take the pre-med classes (i.e. biology, anatomy, etc.). Psychiatrists are medical doctors, so you will need to go to medical school. (as opposed to psychologists, who are usually Ph.Ds in psychology). Apply to medical school, and get accepted. Graduate.

I'd say law school would be your best bet. You can do better than real-estate, and the world has too many shrinks.

The following is a Curriculum Vitae from an actual nameless Psychiatrist

Wellesley College, Wellesley, Massachusetts,
Bachelor of Arts, 1963 - 1967

State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center,
Brooklyn, N.Y., Doctor of Medicine, 1967 - 1971

Internship in Medicine, New York University Medical Center,
New York, N.Y., 1971 - 1972

Residency in Psychiatry, Mount Sinai Hospital and School of Medicine,
New York, N.Y., 1972 - 1975

If you are lucky and make it through without any delay and start when you are 18 fresh out of high school you could be a Psychiatrist at age 30/31.
Your debt load should only be about $250,000 depending on your choice of school. When you get your degree you may well take up the Governments offer to help with your loans if you go to an "underserved area (small, poor,very rural areas) If this all goes well when you are around 40-44 years olds you MIGHT get your loans to a zero balance.

Have I mentioned the malpractice costs, office costs, CE credit costs.

The first step to becoming any of these is good grammar, spelling and communications skills. Based on your thread topic, you need much improvement in these areas. I seriously doubt you will be able to become a psychiatrist if you cannot spell it.

Don't take everything so seriously American 757. If you were very serious about these careers try talking to your high school counselors. Or even go online to check some things out. There is life outside A.net

Hey, American757...

Have you ever thought about flying for a living? Law and psychiatry sound pretty boring to me.

Well, a 757 Captain is probably on par with a lawyer. But who cares about that? Let the lawyers make their bundles. I'd be a pilot for far less than a lawyer makes.
