How Much Does the LSAT Matter?

Personal opinion time: after my first class in law school, I believe that, aside from getting accepted into law school and receiving scholarships, the LSAT does absolutely nothing for you and does not even lend a clue as to how you will do in law school. It's a test to weed out students who don't... Continue Reading →


Catching Up

It has been a busy couple of weeks! I'm still greatly enjoying law school, but am finding it difficult to write my outline because I'm not entirely sure what all to include. On a side note not related to law school, I have been making cold brew coffee and cutting back on cappuccinos (and, in... Continue Reading →

After today, I'm feeling a little more confident in my understanding of the cases. As some of you... Continue Reading →

First Day of Crim Law

Yesterday was my first day of Criminal Law and the amount of knowledge I gained in that short hour and a half made me giddy with excitement! While I don't feel smarter, necessarily, my mind feels...expanded. People said that most of law school is teaching you how to "think" like a lawyer...they weren't kidding. Unfortunately...

First Week: Legal Analysis

Well, I have officially completed my first week of law classes! I was fortunate enough to attend the Summer Start Program, which means I get to focus on one class before the full (part-time) schedule starts. After this first week, my concern with balancing work, homework, classes, and home life hasn't lessened much, if any,... Continue Reading →
