I found that while the engineering material (CS was taught out of the engineering school at my UG) was harder, I had more of a desire to learn it than the material in law school. I absolutely hated the first semester of law school. I found out that I read slower than everyone else. The crap is just so painfully boring to me that when I read or study I can NOT stop my mind from wandering. This happens much less when I'm doing CS-y type stuff. I might drop out. I'm on a half-tuition scholarship to a top 10 school (got a monster LSAT) but I did terribly and my best friend got in off the wait list and she is doing better than me. So don't believe that a good lsat means that you can necessarily put in the same amount of effort and just do well (that's what I was told).
Actually, another point about the engineering perspective. I asked a ton of other people if the readings were boring for them too and the answer was uniform: definitely. In response to my follow-up question of "why don't you drop out if you hate it?", the response was almost always "what else would I do? I'm a history|english|polysci major." My theory is that law school beckons the smart kids whose background and experience makes them practically unemployable (at least for a decent job). After it attracts these kids whose backs are against the wall, it ranks them by a combination of desperateness and intelligence (where desperateness is measured by willingness to study) by pouring this crap work on top of them and seeing who can regurgitate it the best. I wasn't willing to put myself through the painfully tedious stuff because I was making cash beforehand doing interesting work (the thought being that if I have to be in this much pain to get a job after LS, I would be better off dropping out). (I went to law school to see if I would like it because I liked some UG law classes.) This made me not work nearly as hard as everyone else and do much worse (haven't got my grades yet but I know I did bad). Anyway, the moral here is that I didn't realize how motivated most other people would be because I didn't realize how little choice they had to do well in law school.
