I have a rather strange transferring question. Right now I'm at competitive law school (ranked around 30 in the country). In college I studied extremely hard, and graduated phi beta kappa. I took a year off to study for the lsat, and again worked extremely hard for the test. My problem is that I've always had to work very very hard to do well (I have rather slow processing speed). I always could keep a competitive edge on the people around me by working harder than others. However, I'm finding that where I am a lot of really gifted people are also working their tails off. As a result, I feel behind the pack..almost like I can't compete on the same playing field as them. In the back of my mind I wonder whether I should have opted to go to a less competitive law school, and am thinking about possibly going to a T3 school close to home. What do you think? I understand I would be really regressing, but I'm not interested in going into a law firm (or even perhaps practicing law at all). On the flip side, I've met some really nice people at my current school, I'm just really intimidated by them. For example, all of my professors use the socratic method, and during this entire semester I can count on one hand how many times my classmates have given stupid answers to questions! It's unbelievable, I feel like I go to school with a group of robots. Friendly robots, but very competitive, and ultra-smart robots. I should also indicate that my situation is rather unique in that I don't have any financial pressure. My father, who pays the bills, is telling me to try to relax by realizing that I'm not really competing with the people around me. This is true to the extent that I don't want many of the things they want - a firm job. I would be happy doing almost anything after law school that pays moderately and is intellectually stimulating. So, do you think I should stay? Thanks for your feedback
