Hi, I’m HG and my dream is to attend law school and become a lawyer!
I’m an early 30’s, married, mom of 3 living in the South, but that’s all I’m going to reveal about my personal life as I’d like to remain anonymous.
The LSAT and I have been in a relationship since 2010. That was the year I discovered my passion for the law and changed my undergraduate major from English to Criminal Justice. I wanted to become a voice for the voiceless, and quickly realized that I would need more than just a B.S. to do so. So, I began studying in 2010 for the LSAT, but pressed pause on this goal in order to welcome my first child into the world in 2012. As luck would have it (and I mean that sincerely, as my children are truly amazing little blessings) I gave birth again in 2013, and 2016. While holding off on law school, I earned a graduate degree in Human Services Counseling with a Criminal Justice cognate in 2016.
Now it is 2017 and my firstborn is five-years-old, and I believe the time has finally come to try again. I am currently studying to take the December 2017 administration!
(I should note that after baby #2 was born, I did take the LSAT and scored 10 points lower than I had scored in my practice tests, and I was devastated. Completely. Freaking. Devastated. But I applied anyway to 9 schools and was accepted at 4, waitlisted at 3, and rejected at 2, but ultimately decided to wait to enroll. I know that I can do much better on the LSAT, which in turn changes the schools that will accept me, and the amount of scholarship money I will be offered.)
My current goals are:
- Take the December LSAT
- Score at least a 160
- Apply to schools in January
- Get accepted with a full scholarship
- Begin law school in August 2018
My goals are big, but my God is bigger, and I am excited to document this journey here!
