I know how you feel. I was all excited and gung ho at the beginning of the semester and now I find myself bored and wondering why I did this to myself. I don't have family pressure like you do but I don't want to be a quitter. I know I can do the work and it's not that I find it all that overwhelming. I just find myself in class going "who cares?" I'm keeping up with assignments and everything like I was before but I keep saying "why bother?" I knew before I even applied that law wasn't the most interesting thing in the world to me, but I love to learn and I was hoping it would grow on me. I think one thing that makes it hard is that as a biology/chemistry major, I find the method of teaching in law school quite frustrating. They could cover three times the amount of material if they would just lecture and not waste class time trying to dig information out of the victims they have selected for the Socratic Method. I get that we have to be able to glean the law by reading cases but I think they could establish a foundation that would make it easier. Anyway I feel your pain and I have jusst tried to convince myself that the stupidest thing I could do is to quit mid-semester. You and I can always quit. We might as well go on through the end of the semester. Good luck!
