Maybe all the law students reading this board are so stressed out cause they spend their days cruising this discussion board?
I don't know so much about the whole "tool" label, but I do agree with this statement. From just being on this board for a day or two I can tell that this board is definitely a pissing contest for some people, and that's fine. But, a lot of others on this board get all bent out of shape because it doesn't seem like they're stacking up comparatively.
I'm not entirely sure, but I'm willing to bet that LS is going to be a lot like undergrad; balancing what you need
to do with what you want
to do. I plan on studying more than I did in undergrad, but at the same time I'm going to live a life outside of the law school realm. some people in undergrad studied a hell of a lot more than I did and probably obtained better grades because of it, but I guarantee that I had a lot more fun than they did. some people just need to learn to relax, because there is always going to be something in life that will stress them out, whether it be grades in law school, of finding the perfect job, or moving up the corp. ladder. on the other hand, there are people that need to learn when to turn on and off the party vibe. some people never learn these lessons. others already have.
