Starting Over Law School Again

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.
