should i do this Phd?

Okay I dunno what I am supposed to do with my life right now. I just graduated with a A+ on this international trade law course (Meah was actually right - see previous post on exams) so now you would think that all my problems are solved. But they have only just begun !

The director of the course is encouraging me to sign up to do a 3 year law and econs PHD with the University of Turin. The beauty of that PHD is that it is 1 year compulsory in Turin, and then the other 2 years spent writing the thesis can be done anywhere in the world, but the supervising prof must come from any of the 4 partner universities - Cornell, Ecole Polytechnic, Univ of Ghent..

Dunno much about law and econs, but from what I heard these are pretty good unis in that field. I am really quite interested in that idea, but the question becomes - what do I do after that? Also, do I want my PHD to be in Law and Econs (considering my vaunted lack of numerical ability, this really may not be a good idea)?

Comments please! And "just go be a tai tai" is not really a serious option...

oh yeah - and just to let you know, I have a mental age of 23 years old:

You Are 23 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
