Thank you everyone for replying. Realistic and encouraging.
As providence mentioned I do intend to focus on doing well academically (enough to compensate for my lack of social skills), while not completely shutting myself off from networking opportunities. Now that I think of it, it was sort of ridiculous for me to expect getting by without socializing at all. I would definitely need to be more open-minded in general, and work on things like interviewing skills and getting to know my professors. Law school is a big step/change for me. Might as well acknowledge that and embrace what's to come.
As it stands, I am open to all areas of law, especially on the solicitor side for obvious reasons. I am hoping to find an area of interest while at school. Echoing capitalttruth, It is reassuring to hear that there are areas in which people like myself can succeed. Thank you again!
You don't need a tutor. There are enough free resources around for you to figure out what your issues are and for you to correct them.
For some people, a tutor can help. But I've also heard of people spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on classes/tutors and achieving no improvement.
Hi everyone. I'm quite passionate about travel and I have several big trips I would like to do before I start "in the real world" after school. These trips would be several months long, so I need to plan my career goals and life well in advance if I want to get them in!
For a typical student what do they do after their 1L year? Do they get a legal internship? Is it really important to get something before 2L (my understanding is that in 2L you will get a job that will hopefully lead to an articling position).
Does class usually end in April and start up again in September?
After I finished undergrad I know myself and my peers could negotiate start times for our jobs we were recruited for. Is this common in law?
