much like his career, everything starts out normal and promising. A few pats on the back and high self esteem.

But by the end you are in a street, drunk, screaming at a cabbie and daring cops to arrest you.

Don't forget about doing some positively terrible acting along the way (just in case anyone wonders why nothing ever comes of 1L OCI)!

Question 1 - what school are you at?

Question 2 - do you understand that not everyone "gets" it without trying?

TBF law school isn't as hard as people make it seem. It's just annoying, IMO.


This. I find its pretty easy to be median. Not super hard to be top 1/3rd, above that to me just isn't worth it. So yea, not too bad for me, but if you're gunning for top 10% then yikes.

Outside of the T14, I'd say that pressure is even higher. Everyone knows that they're gunning for the few jobs available at lower ranked schools.

I think a lack of information regarding the relative pressures of 1L between schools precludes intelligent discussion on the subject.

Ah yes, because those 2-3 LSAT points separating the T14 from the T20 are so staggering.

Or are you just trying to compensate for being sub-median at Penn? Trying to tell yourself if you had gone somewhere else, everything would have been okay?

Was more referring to the "its not hard to get median" comment. Just because everyone eventually ends up at median, doesn't mean it doesn't take a fuckton of work
