The journey to becoming a 1L is a long one, filled with a whole lot of stress and anxiety. You’ve worked hard as an undergrad, taken the LSAT, applied for law school and waited in limbo for what felt like forever. Then, it finally happened. You got your first acceptance letter. That being said, there are some things that are just better explained in dog memes.
Anxiously Awaiting Your First Acceptance Letter
Waiting for your first acceptance letter is painful! We know. In the meantime, start thinking about how you’re going to pay for law school. Using tools like the Law School Cost Calculator can help you get an idea of how much it’ll cost. Once you’ve got that calculated, the next thing you should do is start applying for scholarships.

Getting That Acceptance Letter and Freaking Out
Getting your first acceptance letter to law school is extremely exciting. Once the rest of them start rolling in, it’s time to decide which one you want to pursue. A great way to help you choose is to attend the school’s admitted students day. Making the most of admitted students days means talking to other students, visiting the registrar’s office and career center, and more. These days allow you to put together a pros/cons list to help better decide where you will get your legal education.
