A girlfriend could be an issue because I'm a pretty social person, and whenever I had a job that required me to work next to other people, I'd always get too engaged in conversation to get my shit done.

You probably won't be studying at home. In any case, I wouldn't recommend studying at home unless you live alone. And if you don't get your shit done, cold calling ceases to be fun.

Mths knows all about RIGOR.

Do as I say not as....

Sorry I don't check the lounge ever. Still, if you came up with it first, your meme is now on a poster circulating around my school's CDO - and for that, I thank you.

Is it really? Not having any law school experiance I can't see how it would be any harder than normal. People just let shit get to them too much I guess.

Like I said earlier, if a relationship can't survive school which by most accounts require close to a full time job time commitment, how will it survive working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. plus weekends if you get big law?


Because in the big law scenario, you have money.

Nope. Pay your SO to leave, and then upgrade.



ETA: Seriously, removing most money concerns definitely makes relationships easier and less stressful.

I think a lot of responsible men would be less afraid of commitment if money problems were put aside.
