I am not a law student currently, but I graduated only last year. Everything you are saying is 100% familiar to me, and I just wanted to drop in and say hang in there. I was seriously miserable 1L year but it gets so much better. Being a lawyer is noting like being in law school, as it sounds like you are learning. Just keep your chim up and focus on your goals! In the end you will look back on this time and long for certain parts of the student life- I know I do. I think it’s really helpful to remember that you have busted your butt to get to this point and if you have always wanted to go to law school, you are literally living the dream. Incredibly cheesy but true. Just try to congratulate yourself for getting through a legitimately horrid year- only up from here!

@Dizbee:  Law school sucks.  There are no two ways about it.  Sending you lots of ((hugs)), because the sad reality is that once you reach a certain point (second or third semester), it’s more expensive to quit than to just suffer through.

I know this is a woe is me post, but I kept grinning reading it. You have a funny way of telling a story, I love that Chris Rock skit 🙂 It WILL get better. Everything always does. it sucks having to pay your dues when it feels like there is no end in sight, I totally get that. You just have to grit your teeth, put your blinders on and stare straight ahead. I hope it gets better soon for you.

I promise it will be a lot better next year.  You’ll know what to expect, hopefully you’ll have your friends and/or study group to hang out with, and at least you’ll have 1Ls to pity. Laughing

Seriously, CallmeC is right – you just sort of have to put your head down and get through it.  I don’t know anyone who didn’t want to just give up at some point.  But we didn’t, and we all graduated and managed to find jobs in this crappy economy.  You get through.

I shared a small office with the other interns at my first clerkship so I feel your pain.  It blew.  But I see those guys at CLEs now and it’s kind of fun to reminisce.
