So I'm not allowed to post in "Law School Exhaustion" thread anymore, hence I'm moving my rant here.
If you are considering to go to law school, you should reconsider. For most people its a waste of time and a lot of money.... not to mention disappointement and a newly acquired disdain for humanity.
Most lawyers get paid shit, get treated like shit, and have more than double the rate of substance abuse of the general population. And not the cool substance abuse like coke and hookers, but the sad substance abuse like drinking Popov vodka and crying themselves to sleep.
There is a glut of attorneys and a severe lack of jobs, but new law schools keep opening up because any shithead who can drool on an LSAT application will be given a student loan, which law schools will gladly cash.
Anyway, I can go on for days about this thing, but if my opinion was to be to posted on Westlaw, the summary would read "Don't go. Chances are, you gonna get raped."
Disclosure: I'm an attorney with a relatively cushy job, which I got through a bit of luck and a lot of special circumstances (i.e. got hooked up for things not related to my legal achivements). Still, I think most of the profession nowadays is bullshit.
I usually don't care for helping strangers, but its one of those things that drives me nuts. If you got questions, feel free to ask.
