NOT A BUMP
Anyway, as a soon-to-be 1L, I guess the resounding question is:
Are you content with your decision to attend law school?
absolutely. i have a biglaw job lined up this summer. i've found the substantive material interesting (some more than others). i've had an opportunity to learn about the diverse professions I can eventually enter with my JD. and i've met some seriously happy (and seriously miserable) attorneys through networking, and have narrowed down the firms that I will be apply to next year.
i've also become intersted in practice areas i didn't even know existed. though my goal remains IP and patent law, i'm now also intersted in toxic torts, administrative and regulatory affairs, real estate finance, and others.
i have no regrets. law school is a f-ing female dog on most days. i leave my house early, come back (for about an hour) for a snack and to grab a dinner, and go back to the library untill midnight. i hated writing the appellate brief with a passion - not because of the assignment, but because of the fact that the writing class is curved like every other class, and because a stupid comma can cause me from getting the nnext highest grade.
so no, no regrets. it's an intellectual journey and some days I hate it, but most of the time i'm genuinely interested in what i'm learning.
and yea, i have a job.
