I can't help thinking that this is a flame. If I'm wrong, sorry. Love what you do, do what you love. If your belief is as vehement as your discourse, you would be an idiot to continue a legal education. It would be choosing a life of misery. I love the law, I enjoy working with my brain and I find it interesting to deal with the law.
I don't think your post really fits the legal profession. What you do in law school is nothing like what you will do as a lawyer. Also, there are several reasons people go to law school, many of which do not involve love of being a lawyer. In the end, noone LOVES working at a big firm as a junior associate. You do it to make $200k a year and provide a better life for your family.
Quit trying to sound smart. Who uses the words "vehement" and "discourse" in the same sentence on an online discussion board? Go try to make some friends, especially if you claim you "love the law." Nobody in their right mind loves the law while they are in law school.
Seriously? I hate to break it to you, but I didn't go to law school to make 200k a year. It's something I've always wanted to do and it's something I legitimately enjoy. I would think on this board, of all places, many would agree. A legal profession is, in the end, just like any profession. There are many sectors you can enter and how much/how hard/ you work are variables that you can control. I don't envy 70 hour week big firm players who make the big bucks. I don't have the vanity to care about working for a big firm, living in a large house or owning luxury vehicles. If any of that stuff rolls my way, great. If not, life is here for the living.
As for the comment about my online vocabulary? We're law students. How strange can the word 'discourse' be for a law board? I'm not sure why your bothered by my language when I've seen more verbose prose than mine around here. Either way, no one uses a message board to measure intelligence.
