Nervous About Starting 1L Year – What Should I Do?

It’s perfectly normal to be nervous about starting 1L year.  An approaching big change in your life is always nerve-wracking.  But one thing to remember is that everyone in your class is going to be nervous.  I remember a few months before I started I asked a friend who was going to be in my class if he was excited.  The response?  “Not really.”  Everyone feels some sort of apprehension about this new challenge.  No one really has an advantage going in as no one has ever done this before.  At the risk of sounding cliché, you’re all in this together!

LSAT Timing Tips

LSAT Timing Tips: I always tell students that the LSAT has two equally challenging and important aspects: the material and timing. In fact, for many, timing is more difficult than the material.
