I totally did during my busy season at work. :P

Also my 2L friend yesterday just text me yesterday saying "save yourself. don't go to law school. I'm unhappy. I talked to my old TA and he's unhappy. I regret my life choices."

:shock:

Here's my go to for letting people know about law school on fb.

For the public: just update my school

For the couple people that shit on me and think I'm a dumbass: make one of those targeted posts so only they see it, super gushy and pretentious, give it a day, then unfriend them, move

I think every lawyer and law student I've talked to thus far has told me not to go to law school.

I like to think that this depends on the school. But that's probably just wishful thinking lol.

Yeah, I'd def feel better about my life choices if I heard one or two positive things. :lol:

I guess it's better that than getting coerced into going by out-of-touch boomers, though.

Opposite for me too. I've had a lot of non-lawyers tell me not to go. And people with JDs from TTTs who couldn't get a JD-required job afterwards. The lawyers/current Ls have just expressed excitement when I tell them.

I get that from all the attorneys I know EXCEPT my mother and sister in law (both family law attorneys and love their work). But I also want to do PI which none of the attorneys I know does, so I think our motivations are very different. I'm not going into law because I didn't know what else to do/want to get rich. :P (not trying to bash anyone who is going to LS for those reasons, just saying they are not mine)

I have had literally no one tell me that I shouldn't go. Everyone just seems really excited. Maybe I only talk to super-clueless people or maybe I look so innocent and hopeful that no one wants to crush my dreams

I didn't mention rank in my LS announcement post, but did mention that I'd gotten more money than I expected (because I was excited about it lol), then had a thank you at the end for all my friends who let me freak out in their phone all cycle.

most folks i know smile and say "wow that's so fantastic" and then follow up with the decade-long phrase of "but i've heard right now is a really bad time to go to law school"

When I got my LSAT score (I was at a family wedding) my uncle said "Congrats, too bad that means you have to go to law school"

...he is not a lawyer.

Most people are just really impressed with me when I say I'm going to LS. Lol.

I think the most skepticism I've gotten is from people who ask me what I might want to do and I mention that I have an interest in DP cases and they're like, "YOU'D DEFEND A CRIMINAL. I THINK WE SHOULDN'T EVEN WASTE MONEY ON DEATH ROW. JUST TAKE 'EM TO THE YARD AND SHOOT 'EM." (I live in a northwestern place full of white conservatives) They also said basically everyone convicted of a crime is guilty of it and I was like um.... I don't know the exact numbers but I'm pretty sure yours are wrong lol.
