Spring semester be hardest ever?
I know that's the standard line, but I'm feeling like this might actually be true...and it hasn't even started yet. 1L = elaborate hazing.
TITCR, I was saying that exact same thing to my LS dorm mate at the end of 1L first semester and into the 2nd.
It's not only 1L though, it's all 3 years and then another hazing with the bar exam and then more on and on.
Basically, becoming a lawyer and getting all the rewards of being one (with the final goal of having a good stable job that pays decently well that you enjoy and that lets you have a personal life/family life too while doing it all) is like trying to join an exclusive private country club you want into that has a hierarchy of subset preliminary clubs you have to earn your way into one by one to keep climbing the levels.
