Law school isn't as bad as people are lead to believe. The readings may pile up, but there is always enough time to read them. The material isn't terribly difficult to understand, and the socratic method, at least at my school, isn't very intimidating. The problem with law school is that you never know how you stand in relation to your peers, or should I say competitors. You're not quite sure as a 1L what you should be getting from the material. So... if you are comfortable with the fact that you'll learn what you'll learn and will not know how you are doing until exams, then law school isn't too bad. If, on the other hand, you can't accept not knowing, if you stress out, if you're confused about the material, if you get too far behind, then law school is as hard as they say.
