Its a good thing you didn't choose to go into law. I worked for 20 years as a network manager in a law firm and it was very tough for attorneys starting out. Its a very political environment. There is a lot of nepotism and the only new attorneys that got interviewed or hired knew someone important or went to certain schools.
I don't think you would've like the caste system that exists at law firms. A lot of young attorneys get burned out and disillusioned rather quickly. By the 00's, the legal field became so flooded many of them couldn't find jobs.
The 90's was a good time for the tech field so IMO you made a better choice by sticking with that instead of going into law. Somehow I can't see you as a worm farmer. Nah.
