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.

Start your law school journey right with tomorrow’s webinars

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.

Law School Interviews: The First of Many to Come

The other day, I started thinking about the number of interviews I’ve participated in as part of my legal education and career thus far. In total, I think the number is somewhere around 75 in the last four years. For those of you applying this cycle, you may have your first taste of this never-ending cycle of interviews in the coming months. Increasingly, it seems, schools are interviewing applicants prior to making a decision on their applications.

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.

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.

Last Chance to RSVP to Tomorrow’s Webinars!

Random person who wants to go to law school, who is also an imbecile: “I’m going to spend months trying to figure out what the LSAT is on my own, and then many more months after that trying to figure how to apply to law school.”

You, a person who also wants to go to law school, but is a genius and not an imbecile: “I’m going to take a few hours this Wednesday to learn about all that stuff. Oh, also I won’t have to leave my house to do so.”

RSVP to the Webinars We’re Hosting Next Wednesday!

Everyone says “New Year, New Me,” but we don’t hear too many people saying “New Year, New LSAT Score.” Frankly, we’re mystified by why more people aren’t thinking about the LSAT at the moment the clock strikes 12:01 am on New Year’s Eve, and every moment thereafter. Who can explain this phenomenon? No one. No one at all, so don’t even try.

Writing an Interesting Letter of Continued Interest

Last week, we did a post about the difference between having your law school application waitlisted versus put on hold. For those in the latter camp, one of the recommended steps to strengthen your potential for acceptance is writing a letter of continued interest (going forward, an “LOCI”). This week, we’re going to discuss the contents of such a letter in more detail.
