Is law school fun? Yes or no?

Do you enjoy law school?

Do you like being here?

Do you like the people in law school?

Do you ever wish you could be somewhere else?

Can you name 5 things you would rather be doing with your life if you weren't here?

Do you enjoy law school but wish it would hurry up and be over so you can have a paycheck?

Are you glad you can duck out of the real world for a few years?

Do you think you'll have a better life because you went to law school?

Are you sure you're going to practice law?

Do you wonder if, even though you don't really love law school, you'll wish you were back in law school about two months after you start your first law job?

Do you ever wonder if this is a three-year bar exam prep course?

Do you wonder if it's all worth it?

Does your brain hurt sometimes from using it so much?

Do you ever envy Vernell the maintenance guy because he clocks in at 8 and clocks out at 4:30?

Do you ever wish you had a job where you didn't use your brain and not too much was riding on what you did every day, but you had a fulfilling life outside of work?

Can you relate to the professors or do they often seem like they inhabit a different world?

Do you ever think of checking out? (not quitting, but coasting, cruising, etc.)

For that matter, do you ever think of quitting?

Did you come close to quitting your first year?

Has law school warped your brain and made you a different person?

Do you like that new person?

Did you ever imagine you'd become that person?

Do you sometimes have trouble waking up in the morning, knowing you face another day of law school?

Do you wish you enjoyed law school more?

Do you think, hey, I get to wear shorts 365 days of the year. Most people my age are wearing suits or khakis every day to work. This isn't so bad?

Do you ever think, hey, if I blow off a day of law school, no one cares, but if I try this in a couple years when I have a job, that won't go over too well?

Are you glad you don't have to commute to work or spend a lot of time in an office where if you haven't mastered the art of office small talk (think Office Space) people think of you as an outcast?

Do you wonder why some law students take themselves so seriously?

Do you wonder why some law students don't take anything, including law school, seriously?

Is the whole debt thing worth it to you?

Are you going to regret it?

That's one I think about all the time.
