Mike Pence:  ‘No One I Know Likes Law School’

TP1Wall Street Journal, Mike Pence: ‘No One I Know Likes Law School’:

Unlike Mr. Trump, [Mike Pence] has a law degree. And his bumpy experience earning it may be relatable to some.

From a 1994 profile of Mr. Pence published in the Indianapolis Business Journal:

[Pence] tried to enter the Indiana University School of Law, but scored far too low on the admission test. So he spent the next two years traveling to what seemed like every town in the state as an admissions representative for Hanover–gaining a great education about Indiana, he said.

The next whirl at the LSAT placed him in the 84th percentile, and Pence graduated in 1986 with a solid B average. It was tough.

“No one I know likes law school. It was a bad experience. I wouldn’t wish it on a dog I didn’t like,” he laughed.
