It’s ridiculously tempting. You’re cooped up all the time with the same people, studying the same thing. Who else could understand the insane amount of time you’re going to spend studying other than a law student? Look at her. She’s hot. She’s smart. Why not, right? Wrong! Remember in undergrad when you dated that girl in calculus and it got real awkward when you broke up? Good thing you didn’t run in the same group of friends, right? You only had to deal with it when she took the batteries out of your TI-89 and threw them on the floor. Right, Lindsay? Anyway, imagine that scenario if you were in every single class together for a year, and then continued to take a bunch of classes together for two more after that. In addition, you roll in the same clique (collectively, “the law school”), and you bump into each other everywhere you go.
Oh, and did I mention that everyone in the law school knows more about your personal life with her than you do? It’s baffling, really, but we’ll discuss that in more detail later.
