Differences between law school and undergrad

  • Essentially no assignments
  • Students constantly grilled by professors
  • Everyone isn't always checking Facebook in class
  • Mountains of reading that must actually be done (horror of horrors!)
  • Eight hour days on the reg
  • No obnoxious sycophants wasting everyone else's time
  • Professors are more willing to hear, and make, jokes (at least in my classes)
  • Use more than one pen per semester
