Can seniors who have gone down this path share whether they feel it is really worth the late nights and stress levels? Thanks - a struggling junior.
Not sure what you mean by whether it is worth it.
It depends on your values and goals in life.
If you are content with a simple life, then no point struggling.
If you have a relationship now and you donít want to end up a bachelor at 40, then quit and do something more manageable.
If you aspire to be a senior counsel, then Iím afraid you have to slog and sacrifice everything
