by the things i've been reading on this board and others, as well as the personal experiences of some law students i know, its a concern that i have, thats all

Me too.  And in the second week of school... I have met some great people and some annoying people that have no clue about reality.  I avoid them...just like I am avoiding the library.  As for the lecture...I love that people chime in on a topic without reading the previous posts.

Thank you for the "insight" agrooth but, I wasn't whining, prejudging or assuming.  I was concerned from all the things that one reads in articles about law school, books on law school and on these message boards.  All schools will be different.  All classes will be different. And from what I've experienced so far...I lucked out.  My class, while a bit young, seems fairly balanced and only two or three people have emerged as tools.

If money, or a decent standard of living is ultimatly what you want there are far easier(and cheaper) ways to do it.   Having just started my first year a lot of things people have told me in the past are beginning to make sense.  If I was here just to make money, I would be depressed and annoyed.  Go to law school because it is what you want to do not because it is someone else's dream.   If you decide that it is the place for you, then go for it, but really seriously think about why you want to go.   Just my two cents.

11. "Picture" Day (for the Facebook) during 1L Orientation week

You had to wear a suit for picture day???  Really?  I've been spoiled by Seattle. 

Begining my first year, should I already have a suit?  I have plenty of business clothes but Seattle isn't big on the whole suit to work thing.

I realize that  :D  From what I have heard from friends and aquaitances though I am still worried.  Also from my personal experience dealing with legal professionals they seem to be of the entitled mindset.  I am leaving a fantastic set of friend here and moving to where I know no one...I'm starting to worry that it is kindergarten all over again....What if I don't make any friends  :'( :'(

 :D I just wanted to some input so I am mentally prepared for what/who may lie ahead.

Please tell me there are normal people in law school.  I am starting to get worried that I am going to hate most of my classmates.  I am not rich nor do I want to be.  I've worked retail so I'm not a pretentious jerk.  Current students, is it really as bad as I think it is???  Help.

I will also be a 1L in the fall, I currently work 7-4... DEFINITELY looking forward to quitting in two weeks and then starting law school a month after that.

Also, I currently live in a place that rains all the time and will soon be living in a place where they have this thing called sunshine. It's rumored that I won't see it much, but it's nice to know it's out there. Heh. 

Me too! Me too...I am actually looking forward to hot hot summers and cold cold winters as opposed to Seattle's constant cloudy rainy weather for 8 months a year.

As for leaving my job....I work two of them and my primary one sucks ass much like the original op....I actually think I may have more 'me' time now that I wont be working 60-70 hours a week.

With the except that some Grad plus loans may not get disbursed until Oct(due to the newness of the program)...sure its better.
