She had a generous scholarship, but she didn’t have the endurance to survive the “soul crushing” law school environment.Courtney Horne, who we identified through her Twitter handle @fireezdragon, blogged a long soliloquy about why she left law school even though she was “working faster than a lot of my classmates and comprehending pretty well.”
But she just wasn’t ready to give up her entire life to pursue higher education.
“The next thing I learned about law school is that they insist on being the only thing that matters to you,” Horne blogged. “They say things like ‘law is a jealous mistress’ and don’t for one second stop to consider whether that creates a healthy environment.”
But the absolute worst part, what drove her away more than anything else was a criminal law professor who is “iconic of everything wrong with law school,” according to Horne.
He had a habit of holding unscheduled Saturday classes and taking attendance, something Horne found so irksome she emailed student affairs.
Needless to say, he didn’t take too kindly to her complaints, throwing a “literal tantrum in class.”
She said after his tantrum students began excluding her from study groups and turned on her.
“Essentially a bully of a professor who was angered by me asking a question about him pushed my section to bully me,” she blogged.
