I'm actually pretty excited. The idea of moving in general is exciting to some degree for me so that adds to it. I'm also finishing undergrad now and finally getting around to all the classes I need to take that just sounded super boring/pointless. Apparently I was right, they're awful and I can't wait to study something I actually find interesting again (even if I know the work is going to suck).


This. So much this. I know I'll feel so motivated once I get to law school just because I'll be so happy to be doing something I actually want to do for a change.


I can't wait. I miss school. My only concern is I'm going to love law school and find the real thing boring DDD:

im sort of half/half on excitement for law school. I'm KJD, and I won't know anyone at the law school I go to, so I'm going to have to completely restart my social life (which is both great and shitty). Also, my major isn't exactly rigorous at UG, so the bump in work is going to be significant for me.

But, I'm excited to move forward with my life, esepcially since I'm in a much better position than most of the people I know. I can't imagine being about to graduate looking at a basic, low-paying job for the rest of my life. I'd be seriously depressed.

Unlikely, since I'm not planning on attending Yale (or HS).

I'm also one of the weird "love school" people so becoming a law prof is absolutely a dream of mine, but the profile of people who get legal academia is so limited I doubt I stand much of a chance with my measley mid-T14 future degree. Unless I just somehow absolutely kill it in LS, that's probably one of the doors that has already shut:(

I could not possibly be more excited to get back to New York and start living real life again and taking showers and using a computer and not sweating and speaking English and sleeping on something that isn't a concrete floor.

I feel like I would be a lot more fun in this thread if I could just quit my job like right now.

I have to live through the end of July though so I have to sit here, everyday, not caring at all about what happens but not having told anyone else yet.

SAME. Also, it's really hard not to just give my notice every time something frustrating happens or someone pisses me off.

My buddy works for a start-up at a wework office and its way less money (so I'd basically have whatever I saved by now and that's it for law school) but it's looks so fun and they wear jeans and t shirts and every time work is stressful I am so tempted to just bounce now and work there for 3 months

+1. I love the people I work with but it's not very intellectually stimulating, so I'm just bored out of my mind from 8-5/6 every single day. I'd rather be asleep.

I feel like as I get closer to actually choosing a law school, I figure out more and more clearly what it is actually going to mean to quit my job and move to a city where the cost of living is literally 100% higher than where I currently live...with no job :shock: :(

My COL is probably going to be like 1/3 what it is now, but I am getting the same feeling about having 0 income

YUP, someone I know summed up accounting pretty perfectly as mental menial labor. Sure I'm "thinking" but I barely flex my knowledge, it's just about remembering to tick the right box on the query, change the right formulas, etc.

The only times I've ever had to think are when things go wrong, and now I can't care enough to actually stretch my mental muscles to fix it.

It's terrifying! Plus, I have lived in the same state my whole life. I have no idea how to move 1,500 miles away. With a dog and a cat. Do I bring my stuff? Do I sell everything? How much does stuff cost? Do I take these animals on a goddamn plane?! So many questions. :lol:

I've had a job since I was 14 and the concept of going three years (minus summers, hopefully) without a paycheck gives me great anxiety.

Same here. It's a confusing feeling, because I'm actually excited to leave the 8-5, but not working at all? I just don't know how to cope with that.

Same. I'm sure we will be busy/stressed enough once school starts that we aren't worried about working, but Christmas break will be super weird lol.
