Now that I have completed my law school application process, received responses from every school that I have applied to, and paid my seat deposits, a heavy load has been lifted from my tired shoulders. I have been accepted to several schools, something that I didn’t know was possible last year, and I am no longer constantly checking my email for admissions decisions (this excludes the schools that I am on a waitlist for). There are only 2.5 months left until I begin law school. Wow. As I typed that sentence, reality set in. I will begin law school in less than three months! However, that is not what this blog is about. This blog is about what I plan to do before I start school again.
I have talked to several law students and law graduates about how to prepare for law school. Majority of them advised me to do the same thing; relax, go on vacation, enjoy the summer, take time off from work, etc. There is nothing you can do to fully prepare for law school. This can be a little unsettling. Nonetheless, I am taking their advice. I am still reading law school prep books and law school blogs to avoid complete confusion. I am mentally preparing myself to reintegrate myself into a new school environment after taking a year off from formal education. However, I will not live the next few months afraid of my next journey or pulling my hair out due to anxiety. I expect to keep myself busy with leisurely activities rather than stressful obligations. I created a list of activities I want to complete in my blog post “22 Things I Want To Do Before I Turn 22”. So far, I have completed 6 of the 22 activities on my list so my “pre-law school bucketlist” is far from complete.
I can’t wait until I am able to share how I actually prepared for law school and how it worked out for me in the fall!
