Just graduated from law school.  I’m studying for the bar right now.  So "clap clap" from me too!

Another lawyer here.    I would recommend law school if you are actually interested in practicing law.  Others might disagree, but I knew a lot of people who went to law school because they thought the degree would be generally useful and they didn’t know what else to do.  Now they’re stuck working at firms to pay off their loans and they’re miserable.  I generally like my job and I like being a lawyer, although the hours get to me.

Another lawyer here – I graduated from law school in 05.  Ditto sarah’s comments!

I’m not a lawyer, but I am a Reference Librarian at a large law firm. It’s another option for a career that is law related, but without the horrible hours and it only requires a Master’s degree.

I’m not a lawyer just yet…I’m about to begin law school in about two months though! I’m a little nervous but so excited and can’t wait to get started! Although I know my 1L year is going to be something else….seeing that so many bees made it through to the other side…I think I’ll be okay.

@Golden139: Good luck!  I didn’t find 1L year nearly as terrifying as everyone said it was going to be.  It’s definitely a lot of work, but you get through it!  I hope you get to enjoy this summer.  πŸ™‚

@sarahnyc23: Thanks! That’s comforting. My friends have said one of the hardest things about law school is simply not psyching yourself out, and if you can do that, you’ve already won half the battle.

That is absolutely true.  It’s the same for the Bar.  As long as you don’t freak yourself out and start to panic, you’ll be fine.  For both law school and the Bar, I would also recommend doing as much work as you need to feel like you’re prepared, even if it’s more or less than other people.  Because as long as you’re comfortable with what you’ve done, it doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing.  πŸ™‚

another lawyer here :clap clap:

ditto Sarah’s comments about law school being worth it or not worth it. You REALLY have to want to do this for the misery that is law school to be worth it.

I’m an almost lawyer! Taking the bar in july. I agree that you shouldn’t go to law school unless you are fairly sure you wouldn’t mind being a lawyer. It’s really expensive! I enjoyed law school (except for 1l year)–made some really good friends, learned a lot, became a smarter thinker. But I’m not sure it was the wisest investment for me, considering that I want to work in the public interest sector.

Another lawyer here! I would recommend law school a whole lot more than actually having to be a lawyer!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I had SO much fun in law school! I studied abroad, made amazing friends, partied a lot, went to class a little and met my future husband.

Working in law…not so much fun. πŸ™‚ I’d go back to school in a second.
