August 19, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

It’s just about that time of year, we’re on the cusp of the law school application cycle.  For many, your anxiety might be ramping up, but take a deep breath and remember that the application process is relatively straightforward.  Make sure you check the boxes as far as what’s required for your application package (new window) (e.g., resume, transcripts, personal statement, etc.) and get your list of schools together.  Beyond that, try not to pontificate too much about likely admissions or stress out as you wait to hear back from schools.  (I know, easier said than done.)  And if you have questions or concerns as this process begins and winds along, feel free to reach out via email or schedule an appointment to chat with me through Handshake (new window).
