    Won't know till I get there but yeah I've heard it's hard. It's kind of off-putting when you tell someone you want to do Law and they're like 'Law's hard maybe you should pick something else' as if I'm not capable haha! I guess if you enjoy something you'll like doing the work though right?
    Yep definitely.I would take it as a compliment haha.Its like well at least I'm getting something for my 9grand.
    A friend of mine wanted to do law from year 7.it came to applying last yr ,bam came the excuses."Law is too difficult blah blah".she ended up applying for some criminal thing degree (forgot what it's called)

    Why aren't you getting maintenance loan?
    Are you going to be living at home?
