"Pain is temporary. Law degree is forever."
I am currently a second-year evening student at an ABA-accredited law school in Sacramento, California. Law school has basically taken over my life, and that is simply the way law school works. I have not found many blog pages where law student regularly post about their ongoing experiences (because we don't have time for this), but I feel that it is very important that I document how I am navigating through law school. As a first-generation law student and an African American woman, I feel that my posts will be helpful to other first-generation or minority students who aspire to tackle law school.
I will be posting a variety of the different aspects of law school life: LSAT testing, admission applications, scholarships, orientation, study materials, getting involved on campus, networking with alumni, making friends, managing time and trying to not get burnt out by it all.
Law school isn't unbearable. It is an experience that tests your endurance and your ability to grow. With the right tools, mindset and support, you will be able to survive (I usually say thrive, but honestly, sometimes you just need to survive). If it is something that you really want to do, don't give up on your dream. Don't let people or situations deter you. And of course, I'll be here to help.
