By Jacqueline Leung • June 04, 2012•Other Law School Issues
My story is a little different. I'm going to be a first year law student, for the second time. I was admitted in Fall 2011, and unfortunately, after going through my first semester, did not make the grade cut off. I took time off from law school, and submitted my petition on why I should be readmitted, and received my acceptance letter in May. I will be returning this fall again as a 1L, with new classmates, and a stronger conviction to do well.
This is my story, and my progress, as a repeating 1L, and any struggles I experience as a single mother.
