does anyone REALLY want to go to law school? i mean, is law anyone's passion?

or is it just the requisite money and prestige that comes with said degree?

it seems as if law is merely being an accountant but instead of working with numbers it's working with words and consequent interpretations....

I am truly looking foward to it.  I love a good challenge.  I love learning about the law and I don't mind reading, so...

Seriously, spit, I'm curious as to what you would do professionally that you would consider fun?

I wouldn't be doing it if there wasn't a huge payoff at the end. That being said, I am looking forward to the challenge. I think it'll be fun, in its own way.

well, if most of it is as stale as the classes I sat in on... then watching paint peel would be more exciting

then again, it was randomness and a bit of interest in the subject that caused this portrait painter/ writer to apply to law school....   and i'm definitely having second thoughts now....

if it were my choice i'd paint all day, be a writer, or maybe an editor or photographer. i sound like a kid out of Highlights children's magazine. but i guess all *real* jobs suck, no?

No, not all real jobs suck.  I can't believe you're willing to dive into this much debt over something you already loathe.
