wow, this is TLS circle jerk at its finest. I am in my second semester too and I also am feeling complacent and frustrated at times, but holy shit you guys sound like the biggest bunch of whiners. Telling people with MDs that they can't comment on difficult academic experiences? Get over yourselves. It is just law school. Telling 0Ls, "now that I am a wise law student of 6 months, I can impart the wisdom that you will never succeed" lol. You must sound stupid to adults who know that life goes on and has real problems besides the law school blues. Plus, I promise you will all be back on here next year as 2Ls saying "1Ls shouldn't comment, they don't understand" and then in 3 years as lawyers "law students shouldn't comment, they don't understand"
Go see a fucking movie, go to the gym, take a break, earn a B if it saves your sanity, but please, get some fucking perspective you whiney brats.
First thing to notice is that the thread was made for the purpose of people talking about the things you're upset about. I really don't have a problem with people making threads about whatever they want. Some people in the thread have expressed gratitude about seeing the thread just because it made them feel better about their uneasy feelings this semester. Sure, maybe some people's complaints seemed weak or exaggerated, but if it's honestly how they feel or it helps them or others just to write it, no matter how silly it is, it's no reason to bust flying into the thread shitting on everyone and flexing.
FWIW while it went outside proper bounds here and there, I think it's fine for people to hold and express the opinion that someone in medical school shouldn't be commentating on and criticizing people's attitudes about something (s)he hasn't experienced. That's not to say that medical school isn't harder than law school, or that (s)he has a more developed perspective on being in school in general, but I think it is fair to say that the structure of them is different enough to assume that insight into one very well maybe not transferrable to the other. I would hold the same opinion of someone with 2 tours in 'nam with PTSD trying to tell someone with postpartum depression what it is and what to do. Sure, the vets problems maybe more hardcore, and they're both of a similar kind, but they're different enough to the point that the vet really doesn't have much room to comment. Accordingly, if that vet logs onto a postpartum depression forum to impart his wisdom, I would not be surprised or in disagreement to see him asked not to participate in the discussion.
