In your Law School Years, many of your future peers are going to be the same gender and the same race. Be ready for this fact and have realistic expectations for your future life. You may not have all of the same interests and talents as your friends do. This is okay, especially if you have decided that you want to pursue a different career path.
The most important part of Law School is going to be the experience that you will gain from it. This is the reason that you went to Law School. You will gain a lot of insight into your future career by working in the field. You will also learn a great deal about yourself as you go along.
