I have been working in the legal field for almost 9 years now and I am currently attending law school part-time. If you can, I think it's incredibly important to work at a law firm for at least a few months before taking the next step and committing to law school so you have real life experience . I also think it is valuable to a lot of schools that you have made this decision knowing at least a little bit what it is like after law school since passing the bar and being a practicing lawyer are important to their statistics (plus can help with a personal statement!).
Like Rachael said, the LSAT is its own sort of test and I do encourage you to take as many practice exams as you can, but also keep in mind that it has nothing to really to do with law school or being a lawyer, other than both require strong reading. logic, and writing skills. I would also recommend thinking about what type of law your are interested in and trying to find an opportunity within that field. It can be completely different from what you thought it would be or it could completely validate that it is the field for you. Plus there are people in law school who try to do a little bit of everything and end up feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about what type of law they want to practice. Law school is hard work and a lot of reading, as someone who naturally did well in my high school and college classes, it was an adjustment that it is really like a second job (or a job if you aren't working :D)
If you have any questions, please let me know! Best of luck!
Jennifer recommends the following next steps:
- gain experience working at a law firm
- study for the LSAT using past LSAT exams
