'Should I go to HYS?'

http://jdunderground.com/all/thread.php?threadId=45901

My advice... Before accepting even HYS, try the following practical exercises to see if REALLY would enjoy law:

1) Take the warranty card from your television or Blu ray player and re-write it into 'plain English'.

2) Read a dozen IRS tax ruling letters and summarize them in emails to your friends.

3) Read the USPTO Trademark examiner manual (all 850 pages) and draft a motion to challenge a Trademark rejection based on the rules.

This is what "successful lawyers" from HYS do. Would you consider these tasks "fun"? Would you still enjoy them after 3 years, 5 years, 20 years? Would you be okay doing these tasks until 9 pm and having to miss dinner with your spouse and spending time with your kids?

Roughly 80% of the "successful" lawyers I know spend their days on specialized drudgery. There's a lawyer I know from the gym who represents excess carrier insurance companies in coverage denial lawsuits against Fortune 500 corporations. That's >all< he does. Everyday he litigates over "reservation of rights" letters and non-coverage decisions. Does that sound exciting to you?

I get the point, but like, what the fuck do you think non-lawyers are doing? Not everyone is a video game tester for Rockstar Games.

There is shit about this job that sucks for sure, but that has more to do with the biglaw structure/culture than the substance of the work, in my experience. This job is more intellectually rewarding than 98% of jobs. If you disagree, you either don't get it or you've never worked at a gas station or some office monkey job.

nah...for example, i know a guy who turned his love of working out and weight lifting into a business. now, he has a huge following on youtube and has a successful personal training business.

another example...a buddy of mine loved going out and being social so he decided to start a advertising firm that specializes in bar marketing/promotions...dude now makes 6 figures and gets to spend a lot of time in bars/clubs.

you don't have to do shit you hate just to get a paycheck.

I have some devastating news for you. You're not a snowflake. You, like everyone else, if going to have to work your ass off if you want an upper middle class living. And you're going to do it doing something your not thrilled about getting up at 8 AM everyday to do.

Sure, you might be that ballsy guy or girl that is brilliant or lucky enough to figure out how to make millions doing something awesome, but that's a long shot. By the way, that reference to "girl" in the previous sentence was purely academic and not based in reality.

Instead, you're going to have to hope that you can convince someone to pay you enough money to get a nice apartment, to convince some upper middle class girl to fuck you, and to please your parents. This may be in law, dentistry, or some other profession. Enjoy.

i'm not going that route. i'd rather be a cashier at 7/11.

btw, read what i wrote above. oh, and also, youre the same type of person who would have told jordan he'd never make it to the nba back in high school.
