Is it just me, or are first year law students all insane? I am aware that any number of studies suggest that law students and attorneys have a disproportionately high depression, anxiety, alcoholism, etc. rates. But, is it just that law school (and the legal career) draws these people or does the intensive professonal study, especially in the first year, just force the manifestation of widespread personality and interpersonal defects?
Am I missing something, or am I just not drinking enough? Please tell me it's the latter, because I would hate to think I'm committing a lifetime to a discipline that I like in theory, but whose peers drive me as bonkers as I think they all are.
by the way, I don't discount the possibility that I also require institutionalization.
