i served 4 years in the military, and will soon finish my first year in law school. law school without a doubt, is tougher in so many ways. First, obviously, its harder intellectually, a lot more rigorous. Also, think of your prof's as drill sergeants. They will no doubt break you down with the socratic method. The reason law school is worse is because, unlike in the military, you get no praise at all while ur being taught. the only praise u get is when u get ur grades. Also, i think physically its on par with basic, as far as exhaustion is concerned. Sure, ur not crawling or putting urself through miles of marching, but the whole sleep deprivation thing is exhausting. with 8ams every day of the week, and hours of HW a night, on top of papers due, preparing for an oral argument, as well as outlining for finals, even when u do have a chance to get 8 hours of sleep, u dont sleep. u try to, but u constantly think about what u have to do, planning ur next day.
