Law School Waitlist Motivation

If you happened to have stumbled into the same Jeremiah 29:11 situation that I am— in whether it be that you were denied from your dream school; you are/were stuck in waitlist limbo; or you just don't feel like you know what's going on in your life, here are a few things that are keeping me happy currently:

  • you graduated college... a lot of people didn't make it this far
  • you also got into law school... even more didn't make it this far
  • to people who haven't been studying law school rankings for the past three months, you seem super impressive
  • you're working towards a career and not just a job
  • you know this will be hard {everyone has told you this will be hard} yet here you are, being brave and all
  • if you hate it, you can always stop going like Nick Miller
  • people always say that the best things in life come from when you're out of your comfort zone... and you're way far away from there
  • one day you're going to be real cool when you get to say, "Oh back when I was in law school..."
  • you can rewatch Legally Blonde and either go YASSS or that's SO not how it really is because you actually know
    • same for How to Get Away With Murder
  • the longer you stay in school, the longer you can avoid the real world
  • you're a Boss Bitch on your way to being Head Bitch In Charge
  • if you don't get in to your dream school, you can always apply to transfer there next year


  1. Love your blog! I'm starting law school in a month and have found your blog to help ease some of the fear of the unknown. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. Thanks Winter! I hated feeling like I knew nothing before I went to law school so I'm so happy that you're already more confident then I was starting out!

  2. This is so great! I know you are way past this post already but this single post has to be the best motivator I have seen since my interest in law school. I am still two years away from 1L so the stress hasn't hit me yet but I am so nervous. I doubt myself all the time and this post reassures me and is going to be my go to post when I need an upper. Thank you so much for taking the time to write. It really does help people.

    1. Thank you so much Emily! I honestly forgot about this post until I saw your comment and I saw your comment on a particularly rough day so it helped you and me both! Enjoy your last 2 years of college!!
