I feel much more confident now that I know what to expect for the most part. But I do have to say that I think it is going to be difficult to make friends in law school. I would like to consider myself a social person. In undergraduate I would talk with other students in my class about the homework or reading that we had the night before, usually this consisted of mostly complaining. However, I felt that if I didn’t understand something that someone in class would be more than happy to explain it to me or at least it would make me feel better if I knew that other people didn’t understand the reading. I can tell already that law school is definitely not like that. I was talking to the guy sitting next to me today about one particular Civil Procedure case. I got the main point out of the case but I really did not understand the procedural history. I asked him if he understood it and he simply said, “Yeah it wasn’t hard to understand at all.” So I asked him if he could try to explain it to me and he said “No, its kind of hard to explain, you just have to get it.” How rude. I feel like we are all in the same boat and we should try to help each other out because one day you will be the one that needs the help. I am a big believer in Karma.
