I mean, point taken, but just because law isn't THE WORST shit ever, doesn't mean it's not stressful.
Subjectively, for most young Americans, law school and the work afterwards is pretty difficult.
Maybe I'm out of touch with what most young Americans consider difficult...
I went to law school in my 40's and after a lot of experiences in the world. I guess if I hadn't gone through the things I've been through then law school might have been one of the most difficult things I had experienced... But, on second thought... No, I went through Hell prior to enlisting in the Military also (hence enlisting at the tender young age of 17 to escape the Hell that was my childhood).
So, I guess if I hadn't gone through Hell as a kid, which made dodging bullets seem like a better idea than what I was going through...then, had not been through the Military which is it's own special kind of Hell... and if I had not lost body parts and my eyesight...
Yes, I would agree law school would seem pretty difficult!
The army isn't that difficult, it's not like basic training is graded on a curve. War can be shitty, but also exhilarating and meaningful in a way the law ever can be. You said you were humping and M60 in the desert so that's like, what, Persian Gulf?
And there are lots of occupations where people lose their limbs, They are all difficult, but competing in law school is hard as hell, there is only a few rrhings that compare to it in the military.
Have you ever been in the army/combat? Because this is starting to sound a little like you're talking out of your ass. However if you have first hand experience, I stand corrected.
