I'd wager that most people heading into law school, and most people even on this forum, don't know that law is something they want to do.
When I started out, I didn't know either. I took a big risk by following through with it.
I buy that, but that is very true for a lot of careers, which I grant are generally less expensive to get into. But it certainly applies to lots of graduate programs out there.

We get it, you're now too cool for school (I think this is a genuine phase of TLSers in law school: as 0Ls, they are all cute and optimistic. As 1Ls, they are all jaded and it becomes cool to say, "law school sucks.")
Not I. Though probably not cute, I'm definitely optimistic. But yes, this trend of pessimism is foolish.
