What Surprised You the Most as a 1L?

The utter god-awfulness of law school in general, really.
There you go butter stotch, strike fear into the heats of 0L's
My mission at this point is to talk as many 0L's out of law school as possible. 

OL's:  We don't need another lawyer.  Go be productive.  Write the next great American novel.  Cure cancer.  Work to get NASCAR banned.  Anything but law school.

I basically hated all 3 years, except one class - trial ad. The rest was just a miserable boring almost total waste of time.

Seriously, lawyers need to know basic con law; contracts; real estate (not property); wills & trusts; evidence; a basic writing class for memos, motions, wills, complaints, and supporting briefs; civil procedure and torts or criminal procedure and criminal law (state & fed, but not all 6); negotiation/mediation; trial ad I; professional responsibility, a few electives (~5-6 classes), and about 1000 volunteer law hours. So two years - easy.
