Are you happy with your choice?
« on: April 23, 2009, 07:54:46 PM »
I'm curious about how people feel about their choices?  I know I was very nervous about "making the right choice".  Two years into it I feel like I chose right.  But I also kinda think that if I'd chosen the other school, I'd feel the same way.

How about you guys?

Shouldn't there be an option for people who haven't made a choice yet but want to see the poll results?
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.

Yes, I'm happy with my choice.  This might change though when I'm looking for my first "real" job after law school!  :D

Sometimes I wonder what things would have been like if I had gone to CU, but in the end I'm really glad I went to GULC. The education is amazing, and I'm very happy with the opportunities it has brought.

Well as I said on another thread I have taken at least three credits in law school every semester including summers since 2004. Tonight I walked out of my last ever law school class. I have no regrets at all, I love my school, my city, my classmates and my friends I have made in that time. If I could do it all again, and this may sound crazy to you all, even if I had a chance in hell at Yale, knowing what I know now I would do it all over again right here. I made the right choice for me. Iím just having trouble comprehending that its all over as of tonight. That part I guess I was not ready to think about until the last time I walked out those doors and drove home.   Fells kind of Öempty.
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

I'm sure its not the same, but I had that feeling as I left my last ugrad class today. It's strange to think that its all over.

Matthies is clearly drunk.  I love my school.  But Yale?  C'mon, J. Press n' Bulldogs.  Harvard, no thanks, but Yale?
