Quote from the Real World

When I was in law school, I knew that part of being a good lawyer is being able to tolerate a certain amount of bulls**t. So I looked at law school as a way of testing my BS threshold.
- My boss at lunch today

We have a summer associate1 starting today, and my boss and I took him to lunch. My boss was giving some advice to our new guy, and he uttered the pearl shown above... which I think is funny.

From what I've heard, this is fairly accurate... that there are a lot of things you have to do in law school, or people you have to deal with that make you want to scream "Bulls**t!"2, but you learn to control it and deal with the BS until you become an effective lawyer. Any current students want to confirm or argue with this logic... comment away!

1 I think they used to call them clerks... but all the clerks went away and were replaced by summer associates
2 Or, if you're from South Park, Colorado "Shenanigans!"
