Hopefullawapplicant posted a topic in General DiscussionHi! I’ve been a long time lurker on the forum and am finally applying to law school this year. During the entire process, it seems like everyone has an opinion on everything. People (whether it is on forums or not) seem to have an opinion on where you should go, what law school is worth going to, whether it’s worth going to law school at all, whether you should rewrite the lsat, if certain programs are worth the tuition fees etc. So, I guess my question is, how do you balance making your own decisions and doing what you set out to do while keeping in mind the advice? I find myself constantly being at the mercy of everyone’s opinions. I just want to go to law school, pursue a legal career, and am perfectly content going to any law school in Ontario, I think they all have their pros and cons. I’m also constantly being told that people you go to law school with aren’t pleasant, it’s overly competitive, there are no jobs etc. How do you rise above all the negativity? I realize asking for more opinions when I’m “complaining” about opinions is slightly counterproductive, but I think it would be helpful to hear from those who have already gone through the process and are lawyers rather than random people with little experience or confused law applicants like myself who are all in the same boat. I appreciate any suggestions!
