So, you’re thinking about applying to law school. Maybe this has been a lifelong goal for you, once a relative told you that your bratty, argumentative demeanor would serve you well as an attorney. Maybe you’ve been inspired by civil rights and public interest attorneys past and present and want to fight on behalf of the underrepresented. Maybe you’ve seen starting salaries at so-called Big Law firms and literal bags of money materialized on your corneas. Maybe you’ve seen the arrests of Philly fans celebrating their win last night, and see a market opportunity.
February can be a month of high stress and seemingly endless waiting. Whether you are counting down the days until the February LSAT, or waiting for some good news on your law school applications. And once you make it to law school, February is probably still going to be a month for waiting to hear back on summer jobs. It’s time to step off the hamster wheel of life created by these cycles of unbearable waiting, and find something you can do right now.
