Law School Decision

When I was six years old, I decided I wanted to go to law school. I was a talkative child who wanted to know everything; watching Legally Blonde for the first time later on just sealed the deal. So many of the things I started doing and found myself passionate about, in both high school and college, kept anchoring back to the knowledge, skills, and opportunities linked to law school. Like any other person, I definitely had my little crises over the years - questioning my choices was as routine as breathing when I was surrounded by business majors who acted like they already had their careers mapped out from freshman summer to MBA. But every path is different, and I am so lucky to have amazing friends and family who supported me and what I want to be.

So... here I am. After waiting for it for so long, after the endless research and chats, after leaving myself in overdrive for the past four (technically eight?) years, I think I know I am finally ready.


This past January, I visited the Vanderbilt Law campus in Nashville as I was waiting to hear back about my application for the upcoming Fall. The weather was cold and icy, but the people of Nashville and the Vandy campus were about as warm as can be. My interviewer in December had promised that if I saw the place myself and spoke with some students that I would fall in love with Vandy.

The campus is so small, especially considering I'm from ASU - but I think that was a big part of what I liked about it. I am from a relatively small town in northwestern AZ and while I love the resources and opportunities present only at large universities, I miss feeling like I knew most of the people in my classes. Like any program, the work is rigorous and studying will basically be a full-time job with no overtime pay.

The next three years are going to be rough, but I am going to try to be better about TSP than I have been. Writing out even this little announcement post has been fun and cathartic. I have never been much of a journaler, but one could argue this is my version of the journal. Thanks for reading, and I hope you stick around - if the last few years have been any indication, things are going to be interesting.
