Yeah, no. What you actually said was:

Then when asked why you wanted to go to law school, you said a bunch of things that are not good reasons to go to law school, and people told you so.
I also think one doesn't have to actually have great reasons on why they want to go to law school. All you need is the desire to want to go. Who gives a shit about why.
You might be trolling. But if you aren't, this is painfully stupid.
When I graduated from undergrad I left to go teach in China. Nobody asked me why I wanted to go there. And even if they did... I'd respond... why the fuck not, it's China.
Teaching in China didn't cost $250k, now did it champ?
You all act like there has to be a reason for every little thing people do. There does not.
This isn't a little thing. This is three years of your life and debt that can ruin your life if you can't figure out how to pay it back. This isn't some Eat, Pray, Love soul-finding journey.
And If I can justify wanting to go to Harvard Law because they serve great ice cream there. Then fuck it... I'm going for the ice cream... and you can't tell me that's a bad reason... because that's the only reason I need.
Do me a favor and come to UVA. Be in all my classes and take all my exams. You help me with the curve, and you get to have all the ice cream you want. It's a win-win.
