Yeah, my heart bleeds for you. You thought this was stressful? How about working a full time job 8-5, then attending classes at night 3-4 nights a week, eating a sandwich for dinner in class, not getting home til after 10 pm. Then spending 10-12 hours a day each weekend day studying. And studying at lunch on weekdays, and on public transportation to and from class. All while doing 2/3 the units of day students who do nothing but go to school, some of whom end up taking night classes after 1st year, so you are competing with people that have way more time on their hands. Some of us night students do actually work full time. And we are very easily irritated when day students with cush schedules complain about how stressed they are. Please.We can play this game forever until we get to people getting limbs blown off in Iraq or starving in Africa. Everyone has their own problems and everyone's own problems are more important to them than everyone else's. If you're older, wiser, more experienced and overall better equipped to deal with the demands of law school, especially part-time law school, good for you. That's no reason to discount how stressed other people are, or to rub it in their face. And if you're sick of listening to full-time students complain about their schedules, then stop.
