It occurred to me recently that this is not just the end of law school for me, but in all likelihood the end of school, period.
That's really fine with me. I've always been pretty good at school but I can't say I've ever really liked it that much. The 12 years I spent out in the world after college were much more enjoyable than either college or law school. Not because I've had bad school experiences — I just find the format a bit repetitive & limiting.
That's not true of everyone. I know there are people who pursue much lengthier graduate degrees than I have. I have friends who are avowed school-lovers and claim they would become professional students if they could.
It's sort of amazing to me that in 39 days, I will be an ex-law student.
