Its another thing to keep summer associates happy to defray the reality of how miserable their lives are going to be, said Cameron Stracher, a professor at New York Law School and author of Double Billing: A Young Lawyers Tale of Greed, Sex, Lies, and the Pursuit of a Swivel Chair (William Morrow, 1998). He suspects most of their patronage of the arts will consist of writing checks. Its like the sublimation of their true desires, he said.I laughed at first, really hard...but then thought of that coffee date I had with my voice teacher about a week before my F.U. deposit was due. "Don't do it," she said. "You should be auditioning. Musicals are more fun than Law School. Musicals are like summer camp. Law School...well...isn't."
I disagree. Law School is like summer camp, only it's that CTY camp my parents tried to get me to go to. Yes, you know that camp...the one for which the Indian and Korean kids in your 8th grade class took the SATs to get in.
