All of us at Ms. JD have really enjoyed the kick off of our Pre-Law Program. From the fantastic blog posts to seeing our Ms. JD Fellows pay it forward with their advice for Acing Law School, it's been a lot of fun. We're excited for everything that's still to come for our Pre-Law Followers this Fall and Spring.
We're also very aware that many of our Pre-Law followers will no longer be Pre-Laws as they start law school in a few short weeks. If you are among them, we want to be the first to welcome you to this crazy wonderful profession we call law and share with you some additional tips for staying in touch and staying involved with Ms. JD.
