I haven’t, but my sister just finished last May.  It took her a loooong time (about 9 months) to find a job, even after passing the bar the first time around.  BUT she could not be happier for following her dreams.  After watching her go through the experience, I would say it will absolutely not be easy.  They make it hard on purpose though because they want people who will stick it through.  Keep going, and I promise it will be worth it in the end!

I’m probably not in the best position to judge, I just finished my 2nd year but don’t worry too much about grades!  It seems like there are a lot of people whose grades aren’t the best, and have done just fine based on getting internships, meeting the right people etc. Also, I’m slightly jealous you have your back already, I hate waiting!

I just graduated this weekend and I’m glad I stuck with it….even though it majorly sucked at times. You’ve already finished your first year I’m guessing? If so then the hardest part is over school-wise. It really will keep getting better from here. Finding a job might be harder in this economy but it’s going to be hard no matter what field you’re in right now. Stick with it and congrats on being done with finals!

@MrsCoachBtoBee: I will probably be having one of those moment next week when I get my grades back too 🙂

Dont give up! For one it will be hard to pay back the loans if you quit lol. All joking aside, i just passed the NY bar and I could not be happier. It made all the struggles worth it. I still dont have a job….but I know i will soon.

I felt the same way as you when i first got to law school. I was used to being the smart one in class, but everyone in law school was the smart one in undergrad so it takes some adjusting. And dont get me started on grading curves….

Just stick with it and study hard. Grades matter a lot more than you think, especially in this economy. I have been there so if you ever need any motivation feel free to PM me. Good luck!
