Am I in the right School?

So, I started this game at the beginning of the week. Coming from conventional games I just went with what the game gave me based on the Test (Ice). The thing about it is, I have no idea whether that would be a fit for me. Heck, I just got the hang of the basics not too long ago, and I didn't really start to feel like an Ice Wizard til about 2 hours ago, and even then, I have a bunch of Ice spells, does it really mean anything? I'd hate to take this character out and regret moving him along a month or so from now.

Are there any basic rules that surround the different schools that make it easier for an outsider to understand. I feel a bit out of my realm not having the classic labels of warrior, cleric, and rogue to run by....

And on top of that my GF is now making sorting hat jokes... I have a feeling I'm not in Azeroth anymore.

Life specializes in healing themselves and others.
Ice has high health, but low damage. These are your tanks.
Myth has a plethora of minions to assist in duels.
Fire specializes in damage over time spells.
Storm does the most damage, but has the lowest chance of successfully casting.
Death has many spells that return half the damage in the form of healing.
Balance is your buffer, with many spells meant to enhance the power and accuracy of other spells.

If you're used to playing a hunter, go with Myth.
If you're used to playing a tank, go with Ice.
If you're used to handing out a lot of damage quickly, go with Storm.
If you're used to handing out damage over time, go with Fire.
If you're used to being a support player to buff yourself and others, go with Balance.
If you're used to draining damage, go with Death.
If you're used to being a support player and healing, go with Life.
