General Board / Wow I just tanked on my first final this semester.

No, I'm not one of those guys who goes on about his exams even if he did well.  I have never been so clueless, quite frankly.  Let's hope there are people in my class dumber than I am.

Feel free to console me.

General Board / Should I quit?
« on: April 08, 2009, 12:48:31 AM »
I'm at a school that ranks toward the bottom of the T14 in my second semester.  In my first semester, I was slightly above median.  I'm not going to do any better this semester and may even end up doing worse.

My question:  should I get out now?  Law school is ridiculously expensive and, with salaries stagnating and possibly plummeting in the near future, it no longer seems worth it... particularly given that I'm not doing very well.

I left a career as an engineer (semiconductor devices) to go into patent law.  I was a researcher and I could probably go back to it.  I'd only do that, though, if being in the median really means that I'd have poor career opportunities in patent law. 

I have already passed the patent bar and have 3 years of experience working as a patent agent prosecuting patent applications.
