Still pretty sure this is true, and figured it could provide realistic, albeit painful, comfort to this year's crop of 1Ls.

Think about how much money you're lighting on fire for the privilege of being tortured.

Dropping out has never seemed like such a good idea.

Same, but there's this cool thing called a "honeymoon period" that will die when you receive your first semester grades.

Since legal practice is similar to law school, you'll do great!

He's 3 years out of school, I think he just had enough sense to stop hanging around.

Hey man, some people like whips and chains and pooping on each other. I happen to like incredibly boring, detail-oriented anal retentiveness, complete with passive-aggressive bosses and coworkers. And stupid criminals. There are worse ways to make a living.

There is literally no worse way to make a living that requires such an expensive professional degree.

Define "worse way to make a living." Do you mean personal enjoyment, or do you mean economic logic? Because you're out in the cold on the personal enjoyment logic, at least for me.
