Furcifer, I just want to let you know that it makes no sense to put your answer to a quote before the actual quote. That is why everybody else puts the quote first, then their response. It follows the natural flow of conversation because, as I'm sure you know, in the English language people tend to read top to bottom. I think you will have an easier time on TLS (and everywhere else) if you don't annoy people with weird formatting. Hope that helps.

A very polite and logical thing to say. Thankyou for that knowledge.

That being said, who cares if I annoy some one here? Even if they fell in love with me, they can't fellatio me through the bluescreen can they? Fudge it.

Did you know that TLS is in fact a privately run website and is not affiliated with any state or federal government?

Yes, yes I did.
That only affects what they can do, not what I can do.

Plus that's them, not you. I walk into a private bar and barskank gives me lip, unless said lip is attached to a zipper adjacent regin, itdon't mean a thing.

This entire discussion sounds like what my 2L friend bitches to me about all the time.

He has a 2L summer internship where he is getting paid 3k a week and essentially has a full time offer from the same firm for $120k + bonus when he graduates so long as he doesn't epic fail over the summer.

I visited his classes and it is true I was stunned by how awful it was even at a top 20 school but nothing in life is free or easy. Law school isn't there for you to make friends or become the philosopher's apprentice. It's just a really irritating an expensive stepping stone on the way to a career.

Wait. He's getting paid 3K/wk for the summer, but will only make $120K as an associate?

Does he get 3 months vacation?

1) Didn't read much here, but for the love of god stop typing above the quoted text

2) Law school does suck and it has horrible people. Still not sure that I regret it though. Lately I've been starting to regret it, but none of the alternatives were that great either. At a point you just have to accept that whatever you choose will ultimately suck, might as well do something with the potential for high pay.

I agree that law school isn't for everyone and that there are a ton of annoying people everywhere you go in life, but to say that law schools are "filled with terrible people" seems like an odd generalization. Like everything else in life, it is what you make it.



+1

I felt my undergrad had a lot more terrible people in it than my law school. My classmates are generally grounded, nice, and like to have a good time while they head to their goals. Sure, their goals will likely change a bunch and no ones career is perfect, but these don't seem to be terrible people.

I used to live in the east coast in this city where my immediate network was full of shitty mascara caked chubby chicks who went shopping all day with daddies money, and bros who were painfully insecure despite being in an objectively better position than 98% of the planet. These people were terrible.

Law School has been nice. Maybe this attitude comes from higher ranked schools where everyone is in debt up to their eyeballs and gunning for biglawl??
