That is a question that I have often been asked by young legal hopefuls. Depending on whether I have the time or not or if I am in the mood to “impart my wisdom,” I always start and end my answer with “(i)t all depends on how much you really want to be a lawyer.”I’m back to one of my favorite topics thanks to a comment from Sheryl which she made in reference to my post on “Feedback on Feedback: Chasing the dream to be a legal eagle“. Thanks for your comment, Sheryl, and I want you to know I’m always thrilled when those who bump into my corner of the blogsphere make their presence felt with a comment. Good luck with the entrance exams..Which brings me back to the question which I have chosen to use as the title for this post. Is it hard? Yes, it is. Is it worth it? It depends on what your answer is to how much you really want to be a lawyer. Even passing the entrance exam to your school of choice is not a guarantee that you will be one, but if you have the fire in you to conquer all no matter what obstacles may come your way, then you will have a fighting chance.It’s not even how intelligent or smart you may be, or how eloquent or verbally proficient you are — even the genuises have folded in the face of a struggle to attain something that is not truly in their hearts. Like when one pursues a legal education to keep the family law firm going.. it has to be YOUR dream. Good luck to all the legal hopefuls out there.. here’s hoping that those who truly have that dream in their hearts will find themselves a step closer as the school of their choice accepts them.
