Before You Dive Right In…

Before you dive head first into bar study, take some time to remind yourself of why you started on the law school journey in the first place. It’s been years since you sat down to write your personal statement for your law school application. You’re going to need to draw on that initial passion in order to get through the next couple of months.nypl.digitalcollections.510d47d9-c027-a3d9-e040-e00a18064a99.001.w

Dig out that old personal statement (you can probably get it from LSAC if you don’t still have it somewhere), write a letter to yourself, or create some art as a reminder of where you want to be once the bar exam is behind you.

Studying for the bar exam can be a roller coaster of emotions. You will want something on hand to remind you of your end goal when you begin to feel overwhelmed, or like studying for the bar is too divorced from the real work you should be doing to be worth it.
