Current Law Students / Re: Is UVA worth it w/ 150k debt?

Job in finance that you still manage to have in 2009? Keep it.

Take 150k, put it towards a house. Buy a Porsche, *&^%, you'll get more enjoyment out of it. If finance in boring, legal work isn't going to be any more fun. It is just as soul-sucking, only this time you will have 150k to pay off.

You get access to Black's online via your student Westlaw subscription. You're already paying for it in your tuition, don't bother to buy another copy.

Are you kidding?  Absolutely not.  Law school made me a worse writer and speaker, in many ways.


It's going to suck. Quartiles came out and I don't feel nearly as bad as I was dreading, could be better, though. Sort of resolved to get back in the fray and fight the good fight, again, but this taste of summer freedom is going to be hard to give up.

Also, am dreading the schedule I pulled for fall semester. It's going to be a nasty few months.

tl;dr the whole thing

We've all read stuff like this before. Just sort of convinces me more that biglaw sucks.

I went into LS wanting (regional) "big"law, and still do, although probably don't have the grades for it. Am I a pitiable creature, or free to discover enlightenment in other areas of the law?

Pretty much everything on that list, except no. 3.
