I’ve been trying to do some soul-searching in the midst of my very busy schedule. I don’t know how’s it been so far. Anyway, I hope my computer gets fixed this weekend because I already have lots of stories to tell. This one though, I just cannot let go by.
My boss suggested, not in jest, that I should give law school a shot. Out of curiosity, I checked the sites of premiere law schools in the country and found out that they are open for applications starting this month.
On the surface, this is a crazy idea. See, how can you expect someone to get into law school, and cope with the rigors of it, when she’s having difficulty pulling off a 6-unti semester of graduate school?
I have been not been attending school, with permission from my professor and for legitimate reasons, but it’s not like my situation is not workable at all. I had this nagging fear of attending classes and being part of classroom discourses, as I prefer to simply read and absorb information at my own pace, at my own time. How can I possibly qualify in a law school, ‘no?
Anyway, it’s a weakness that I also told my boss I wish to change. I was not a brilliant speaker or class reporter in college. I’m not one of the best speakers in class, though some say I did entertain my audience in some of my speeches. However, since we did it in every class, talking in front of people came so naturally then. Four years of mainly desk work exhausted it off me. Since they say it’s a skill that can be honed, a rehash of my general knowledge would be a good take-off point in trying to get into law school.
Not that I’m seriously considering it. 😉 Maybe because it’s a challenge of sorts. Anyway, my boss said I can take any qualifying exam, the LAE-type, just for kicks. I’ve got nothing to lose. and yes, if—again, if— I pass, then that’s when I could probably consider it more seriously. Come to think of it, I know only about 2 close relatives, on both sides, who are lawyers!
Oh well, let’s see. Maybe I’m posed to pursue higher education, but if it’s only to do something to escape the monotony of work, I still don’t know. I even took a crazy online quiz and it showed this:
You Should Maybe Go to Grad School
Maybe this requires a deeper thinking.
