♥ I GOT MY SCHEDULE ♥
As the title of this post says, I got my class schedule the other day! It was such an exciting moment, I immediately took a screenshot & sent it to Brandon & Tisha. I was in the car dealership & everyone was wondering why I was jumping up and down haha.
So, here’s my schedule!
Contracts ♥ Property ♥ Legal Writing ♥ Legal Reserach ♥ Criminal Law

Okay, so I’m kinda busy. I will not be slacking on the blog posts though, so get excited!!
The process of choosing which law schools to apply to can be difficult. When my journey began, I based my choices on the most popular ranking system U.S. News Law School Rankings. Why? Because everyone always talked about how prestigious Harvard is, and how smart Yale students are. What I failed to realize however, was in MY order of importance prestige was at the bottom.

I was in the process of writing a really nice post for the blog today when I got an email with some disappointing news.
After crying it out for a few minutes, I put my frustration into action & I think I’ve figured things out. I wont get into detail about it just yet, but hopefully by next week I’ll be able to update you all.
Every now & then things happen in life that remind you, life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
Life throws curveballs, you just gotta learn how to catch them.
It does, I wont sugar coat it. It was the most stressful experience of my life (that’s a bit dramatic, I know). To tell you all the truth, I rarely feel challenged in school. I hope that doesn’t sound arrogant, it’s just how I feel. I’ve always gotten A’s, I’ve always been a good student, and I rarely come across subjects that I find difficult. (Yay, law school?) So when it came time to study for the LSAT I thought it would be just another exam…boy was I wrong!

So I have this app on my phone that is counting down the days until I start law school. (79 days, 22 hours & 38 minutes) As I look at it, I realize how long the journey to this day has been. I didn’t grow up wanting to be a lawyer so it’s not as long as my besfriend’s timeline but it has been a lengthy process. So I decided to take you all along a timeline of my “Get to law school” journey. Here we go!
Fall 2012: “I think I want to be a lawyer” This is really how it happened, no lie.
March 2013: My first law school visit with my bestie Tisha (www.bytisha.com), we flew to New York and visited Fordham Law & NYU Law. Continue reading “My Law School Journey”
I started this blog in an effort to help pre-law students get a real idea of what the law school journey is all about. When I decided that I wanted to become a lawyer about 3 years ago I searched every website, blog, & forum for help on what to do & where to start.
I was so excited when I found resources specifically for law students, I was never short of answers. I spent hours at a time reading law student blogs with titles like “A day in the life of a law student” & “My study schedule.” These posts helped me understand what this life is REALLY like. Recently I’ve stepped out of my shell & started not only reading the blogs & forums, but actually participating in them. I comment & ask questions, I private message people who interest me, and I engage in conversation with #LawTwitter. Continue reading “The law community is supportive”
