Re: Law School

I think the difficulty of ANY school is largely overblown because the majority of the people either struggle with many of the concepts, or they are lazy when it comes to doing the actual work, so it seems tough when push comes to shove. I think Medical School is legitimately hard. Graduate programs at their culmination (theses and dissertations) are legitimately hard. Beyond that, regular classes in grad/business/law school really aren't that bad if you have a reasonable strategy for them, a decent work ethic, and the appropriate intelligence.

werd.

just make sure you're in the top 1% so you can get a job in a couple years when the economy is further tanking.

Re: Law School

Lawyers don't get paid well because it's hard. They get paid well because it sucks really hard and is boring as hell.

Re: Law School

I can say without a doubt that, at least for me, law school takes infinitely less time/work than undergrad did.

Re: Law School

law school is easy, the hardest part about getting J.D. is getting in.

I guess in the US theres a ton of crappy schools so even that's easy.

Re: Law School

Does comin from a professional school (pharmacy) help your chances when getting into law school? And if you wanted to practice a specific and more exclusive type of law (pharmaceutical law), would you go to a specific law school specializing in that or do you specialize later? Not really close to graduating but I may consider it later, theres only a handful of pharmaceutical lawyers in ontario (canada) so I guess I'd probably have to go to the states right?

Re: Law School

After not working that hard first semester and doing well, I spent most of law school playing cards, playing golf, and playing gin at the race track. Bar studying wasn't really that much different. I played golf 2-3 times a week in May and June and told myself I would stop playing in July and really focus, but I got a new driver towards the end of June and naturally had to break it in.

I'm doing the mentor program at my law school and am a pretty horrible match with my mentee, at least as far as our law school experiences. He's stressed about everything, spends 10 hours at the law school everyday (even early in the semester), had his outlines done weeks ago, reads everything assigned, and doesn't drink.
