I don't hate law school, I actually enjoy the study of the law...
I hate the people, the self-satisfaction, and the arrogance of it all.
I don't fit in with the crowd of geeks-gone-gradschool when they start talking about all of their accomplishments and think a Saturday night at the bar should consist of conversation about how much better they are than each other. P.S. my school is T3/4, so I can only imagine how much worse this gets up the ladder. No thanks, have a nice life. I have wanted to be a lawyer since I was 12, but now, one year into it, I would gladly cut my losses and run.
But...in line with everyone else, I have assigned my soul to the Devil to the tune of nearly $100K so, yes, I will stay...and hate every minute
Any kindered spirits in your classes? All those things would/will annoy me too...I just accept that they will be there. However, I hope there will be others with my (and your) mindset.
The only thing that scares me about all this (besides finding out that I really have no interest/apptitude in studying law) is coming to the realization of 'throwing away' my military career, a lot of blood/sweat/tears expended. But then again, I really don't need much...one or two 'normal' people is plenty. I figure out of 175 1Ls there's bound to be a few in my section.
