If I'm going to be bored and/or put in a cutthroat environment after law school, then damnit I'm going to at least enjoy law school!
On a related note, everyone should try and at least visit their top options..Every school claims to be collegial but you really need to visit to verify. Not to rag on one particular school, but I withdrew my ED app to Penn after I visited (Insert usual disclaimer about this just being my opinion here). It just wasn't a good fit for me. Every school will churn out their own flavor of kool-aid. You gotta try it to make sure it's a flavor you wouldn't mind drinking for three years
You wound me. But yeah, it's not for everyone.
