I have basically the exact same story as you. I made the tough decision and dropped out of law school. I realized that being a lawyer was going to be a poo life, and very few people were actually 'wired' to enjoy legal work. I definitely am not one of them. Since dropping out (only a few months ago, dropped out mid semester from the U of U) I've got a job with an internet marketing firm and I love it. I can guarantee I'll end up being better financially off because I'm doing something that fits me.
I found law school to be a joke. The case method of learning is the biggest *ucking sham I've ever run into. I quickly realized that I was under a massive delusion that law and law school was some admirable thing, when in fact it's just not true. Law school was a joke, and people who really love studying the law are by nature a little backwards.
I'm not trying to persuade either way, just trying to lend a helping hand. Quitting law school was the best decision I could have made. I can't imagine 'sticking it out.' It would have been absolutely ridiculous for me to do that.
My sincere congratulations to you! I just recently heard a similar story from an old attorney. Many years ago he and his childhood buddy were working at UPS. He continued thru college, then law school. His buddy dropped out of college and went to work for UPS full time. He eventually became a regional manager and then retired at 47 with several millions in the bank, while the attorney is still working and not even close to having millions in retirement.
Unfortunately, I don't see myself becoming a manager of any big corporation any time soon, so I am going to stick with law school for now. This way I know I'll be able to find a decent paying job, instead of gambling on my career.
