I attended the KU's law school from May 1988 until December 1990. Law school is an interesting place. I'm not entirely sure I knew what I was getting into when I first applied.
Initially, I received an acceptance letter to Washburn University in Topeka. However, I was holding out for KU as it had a much better reputation and was ranked among the top public law schools in the United States at that time. Sure enough, I was accepted to KU and off I went. I left my job and started during KU's summer session.
The first day (orientation) included the usual horror-story type stuff you hear from anyone who went - things like, "look to your left. Look to your right. By the end of three years, one of those people will not be graduating." Three years later, I did graduate. Happily. I proceeded to practice law for about 13 years after that. I have "retired" from that field now.
