Yeah, I must be crazy. I loved law school. Made great friends, didn't think it was all that stressful (outside of exam periods) and partied a lot (lived on OSU's campus for 2 of the 3 years). I also went to Moritz (tOSU) where the curve was a B-.I like law school Much less stressful than undergrad in my experience. Idk what being a practicing lawyer is like obviously, but I read a lot of law school horror stories before starting and haven't found them to be true. Unlike undergrad, you just have one big exam at the end. Most of the semester is just reading every night. I'm in my fourth semester and have found plenty of time to hangout with my gf, go to the gym twice a day, get 8 hours of sleep a night, etc.
Currently work as an in-house attorney for a large Ohio company. I love it. It is as much business as it is law. Pay is good, hours are great (8:30-5 with long lunches) and the people I work with are awesome. Would certainly recommend Law if everybody could work in-house. Unfortunately, these jobs are very hard to get. I have a bunch of friends who are doing the firm life. They make good money but they work crazy hours. Mixed bag on whether or not they enjoy it. It takes a certain type of person.
