I guess if you have a strong love for law it will, but imo white collar jobs tend to have similar characteristics. It seems like many of you are going back for your JD to avoid the "real world" for 3 more years to only obtain a law related job that will lead you down the same path of misery.
Just my .02.
I'm pretty much resigned to this fact. Any white collar job is going to be mostly mind-numbing, pointless BS, but at least I'll make four times what I make now if I am able to achieve biglaw. I actually like the idea of eventually building relationships with clients and bringing in business, too, plus the exit options are much better.
