This is truly hard to believe...on Monday at 4pm I will be done attending classes for the foreseeable future. Despite taking some time off between undergrad and law school this is the first time I will finish a year of school with no set plans to start again. It is both exciting and overwhelming. In the next month I will submit my graduation writing requirement paper, take a few finals, pack up my apartment, start my bar prep classes, GRADUATE, and move my stuff to a new state! Whew, I'm tired just thinking about it.

As I was sitting in my first class at RWU Law in August 2007 I hardly believed this day would actually come. Back then it was "1000 Day to the Bar," now it is certainly much less, but I try not to think about that :)  Speaking of things I'm trying not to think about I should get back to this paper I'm supposed to be writing. I guess I would leave you with this: when you are starting that first week/month/semester of law school and it seems like it will never end and that if it does end you will barely have survived it, I am here to tell you that it will. It will end much quicker than you ever thought possible and hopefully if you had a similar experience to mine you'll be able to look back on it as a crazy and stressful but awesome and fun ride. If nothing else you'll be able to commiserate with all the other JD's out there about 3 years that people who haven't been through it will never understand.
