Law School Myth Busters: You’re Going to Give Up Your Social Life

To conclude our series on law school myths, we’re going to end on a positive note. Over the last couple weeks, I’ve gone over the “myth” that the first year of law school is incredibly rigorous and the “myth” that law school hiring is most dependent on your first semester’s grade. Unfortunately, both of those turned out to be more fact than fiction.

Heads Up! We’ll Be Hosting Two More Webinars on Thursday, March 15th!

Top o’ the morning to you! It’s finally March, the month of unseasonably late snowstorms (at least for those of us in the Northeast), busted brackets, and drunks stumbling around the city wearing green on St. Paddy’s Day. It’s also the time of year when a crop of new students begins to think somewhat abstractly about the LSAT looming in their future, or perhaps the law school applications they’ll have to submit in the upcoming fall.

Law School Myth Busters: 1L Grades Will Determine Your Employment

For the last couple weeks, we’ve been doing a series on law school myths. So far, we’ve covered two oft-repeated notions about law school — that the students are competitive and cutthroat and that the first year is incredibly difficult. While the first of those ideas is, indeed, mostly a myth, the second is sadly more fact than fiction.

Law School Myth Busters: 1L Is Going to Be Really Hard

Continuing our series from last week, we’re going to go over another commonly held belief regarding law school to determine whether or not it is a myth. Previously, we covered the notion that law school students are cutthroat competitors — the type who would trip you if you were trying to escape from a horde of zombies — and determined it was more myth than fact. This week, we’re going to cover another off-putting refrain regarding law school: the idea that your first year in school is the most difficult academic year of your life.

Law School Myth Busters: Your Classmates Will Sabotage You

With the February LSAT in the rear view, we’ve entered a relatively LSAT-bereft period that will last until June. In this span, we’re going to do a series covering law school myths. To kick things off, we’ll talk about one of the most prevalent notions regarding law school — that it is a competitive environment filled with cutthroat law students.
