You probably go to my school.-jk.  Though I admit that by not "hiding the ball" class is almost boring. In this type of situation I think the organization/ writing style of exams is much more important- I don't know if that is good or bad for me- hopefully I'll land this consulting gig and not even be around for this semester's exams.

Eh, I guess for some it is the workload but not me- its more about Do I want this to be my life's work?  Answer- Probably not.

It's not the workload that inspired people to say, "You'll want to hang yourself" or whatever.  I know for me it's realizing that law school really isn't that difficult- and someone in a paralegal program is getting a better education regarding the actual practice of law- I was never interested in being a paralegal. Law school is necessary for admission to the bar. It doesn't deserve the prestige its given by many.  Even the dumbest people in your section will have a clue by the end of the first semester. Personally, I'm having trouble seeing myself years from now looking up some garbage issue on Westlaw/ Lexis.

You're just now figuring out that you don't learn anything in a classroom?

Lol- No. But I do appreciate the condescending tone.

You're paying to learn the basics. You'll learn what you really need to know once you get into your first job.

Ohh thanks- and I'll let you know- yes, that's sarcasm because your clearly slow. Please read the post more carefully before replying.

Does anyone else feel that they are paying 90k over 3 yrs to learn how to spot issues and use westlaw/ lexis? I actually enjoy my classes- usually find the material interesting, but I don't see how that translates to practicing. Is anyone else having trouble reconciling the fact that they will be sitting at a computer 5,10,20 yrs from now combing through cases on often less than inspiring issues?

I don't want to be too negative but just wondering if anyone else feels the same and what their thoughts are regarding finishing school, to practice or not, etc. ??? :-[ :-\ :'( :(

Maybe I just need to go get a date. Conventional wisedom says it might be wise to go outside law school for that.

I agree. If you were getting laid you probably wouldn't care. JK!

It's not going to work if it's like this so soon.  Break it off and move on.

budlaw, if you find this site to be beneath you, then why is the apparently idiotic rambling posted here, so under your skin? i urge you, please, to be a little more magnanimous with us poor retards - maybe you could find that in your heart if you switched from crack to decaf. in any case, i look forward to working for you one day, oh great one. ugh, what a putz.

Umm... I already used the decafe line on this thread so if you could not repeat it that would be great. Thanks.-> This post is sure to increase my -5 reputation score.
