My Mom is very happy, proud, can't wait to brag to her friends.
My husband could not be more supportive, encouraging, proud. No way I could do this without his support.
My friends are mixed. They acted happy when I told them, but some are acting strange, defensive. One went into a long dissertation about how she could have gotten into law school, too, but blah, blah. Strange. Reminded me of when I graduated Summa Cum Laude. Friends can be strange creatures sometimes.
Lawyers that I know - all negative. One keeps pleading with me to reconsider everytime I saw him. I finally told him how sorry I was that he was so unhappy with what he was doing. He wanted me to come into his office and meet with a few of his associates to talk about it - I think he was planning some kind of intervention. I said no thanks. It's gotten to the point that when I run into lawyers (and lately I've run into quite a few) I don't even mention my LS plans. I don't want to hear it.
