I am writing to you from my happy place – I’m in Palm Springs. It’s good to get away sometimes, get out of the grind, and open myself up to new ideas. All week, I’ve known I wanted to (had to) write this article about anxiety, but until I got away, to a new place, I didn’t feel ready. New surroundings help clear my head. Heck, even an hour-long yoga class or the rare treat of a massage – anything that gives me time to let my thoughts emerge tends to result in my best ideas.
Which leads me to the whole point of this article: you need freedom to think in order to make good decisions about everything in the law school admission process, whether how to prepare for the LSAT or deciding what’s most important to you in a law school or what to write about in your personal statement – these are not decisions that can be made well under pressure.
