Round 2 - Navigating Law School with Baby #2 on the Way

My husband and I just announced that our second baby boy is due in a December of 2017. What better way to immerse myself in the topic of this blog, right?! I'm kidding, obviously, but it will be beneficial because I will be blogging through December about the topic of being a parent in law school. First things first, we planned this, just as we planned our first (although our first was planned to arrive during summer break, which is significantly longer than winter break). So, what does December look like for a law student? Seattle University School of Law…

Ms. Pre-JD: The Gap

I had planned to write an extensive article on how to network this month (find another amazing article about networking this summer here), but in line with last month’s post, I’m offering a step back from the constant career talk. Instead of thinking about my career trajectory, I want to extend the definition of pre-law to include the years after undergrad and before law school. Now that I’m headed into my junior year, I have only two types of pre-law friends: the ones ordering copious numbers of LSAT books and the ones still smiling because they plan to take a…

Take Two: The Journey to Retaking the Bar—-J.D. Advantage

It’s been over one year since I graduated law school (thank you Facebook for reminding me). In that time, I have experienced the ups and downs of life. Twice I moved apartments and cities. I found a full-time job that I truly enjoy and has a great work environment. Overall, I’ve been very fortunate despite what life has thrown at me. As the Class of 2017 begin studying for the bar, there’s a spectrum of feelings and emotions surging. While studying is important, so is your health. Remember to take care of yourself, exercise, get out of the house, and…

“A Time of Considerable Change”: LSAC Updates and How They Affect Applicants

Slowly, but surely, the Law School Admissions Council has rolled out a series of changes in 2017. I've included a brief description of each and my perspective on how they affect you, the applicant.   “Starting with the September 2017 LSAT, there will no longer be any limitations on the number of times a test taker can take the LSAT in a two-year period. LSAC has revised this policy as part of its planning for additional administrations of the LSAT. We will provide more information about the LSAT schedule in the coming weeks.” -LSAC   This policy change allows students…

Dealing With Law School Competition: Advice to 1L’s

As my 1L year has come to a close, I have spent time reflecting on the past nine months, which have been the most trying and rewarding year of my life. However, I had not realized that I have become so obsessed with succeeding in law school until I started the Advocacy Board tryouts. We were put into groups and told to complete a group project. Not only I, but my other teammates, struggled to even communicate for the first twenty minutes, we had not been in a collaborative environment in over a year. During those twenty minutes, I self-evaluated and became very conscious…
