My procrastination for studying has lead me here, the mecca of BS about law school and legal careers.
What amazes me is how seriously people take law school - how many hours to study, which study guides to buy, how to get involved in a study group...the questions go on and on. But anyone who has any working experience in a firm - or any place of business, for that matter - will readily know that what they learn in school has very little to do with what's expected of them.
What are the rewards for hard work and high grades in law school anyway? An associates position at a huge firm where you feel unimportant, replaceable, and overworked? There's an ongoing rat race in law school, but I fail to see the merits of the coveted cheese.
