Things I learned:
Getting in is not as hard as I had previously expected. Actually it sounds like I could get in pretty much no problem, unless I were to do very badly on the LSAT.
There are totally a ton of career options outside of being a lawyer lawyer at a law firm. Which is cool, because I don't want to be a lawyer lawyer at a law firm. There are even a lot of options in public interest and social justice areas. Except, they're really competitive and you generally have to do unpaid internships for a while and it helps if you move to places like Toronto and Ottawa and Washington and I really like Nova Scotia.
I'm still unconvinced about this whole law school thing. Especially since it feels like I mentioned it once or twice and before I could blink I've practically applied already. I still don't know what I want to do. I think law school would be interesting. I think a law-related career would be interesting for a little while. I'm not convinced I would be happy with it for the rest of my life. I'm not convinced I would be happy with anything for the rest of my life.
Growing up is hard. Making decisions is hard. I don't like this.
But at least now I have more of the information I need in order to make a decision. Which is a good first step.
Also my dad has told me my entire life that he could see me going into lawyer and I never ever agreed with him and now it's pretty much happening and I kind of feel like I have to just because it would make my parents happy. Which makes me not want to do it just so that I can make my own decisions. Which makes it difficult to figure out whether or not I actually do or do not want to do this. Agh.
