Law School Applications / Applications Haikus!

Ok, so many of us have braved the admissions process and have chosen our school, etc.  Now is the time to get some closure--and what better way to do that than to write your own haiku!  Here's mine.  I hope to see MANY more.  Enjoy!

countless apps to write
all in pursuit of something
to drive us insane

Non-Traditional Students / Unsupportive friends; Moral obligation?
« on: January 15, 2005, 06:07:50 PM »
Hi all,

As a non-trad applicant (30yo), I'm noticing that several of my friends are treating my application to law school in a totally unexpected manner: general disapproval and scorn.  It may be because of my background and my current profession (classical musician/teacher) but I'm getting accused a lot of 'selling out' and 'becoming one of them' and so forth. 

Furthermore, as I am a doctoral student at the moment, one of my friends even went so far as to suggest that I had a moral obligation to withdraw from the doctoral program for the remainder of the academic year since I was obviously "wasting the university's money" and "preventing someone from receiving funding because I'm biding time."

I suppose my opinion is that people enter school for many reasons, and their interest and commitment also wanes; i.e., not everyone who is enrolled is equally motivated or dedicated, therefore simply because I'm switching disciplines doesn't mean that I should automatically cut all ties with my former discipline and start life anew.

Has anyone else had a similar dilemma or similar reactions?  I'd love to get some feedback here!
