The other day I read a post over at Law Ingenue linking to advice from Slate. It suggests writing yourself a letter to be opened upon graduating from law school. The letter should focus on the reasons why you're choosing law school and what you hope to do with your degree. It's a great idea but for me it's one of those ideas that I rarely follow through on.

This week while my computer is somewhat occupied I am going to try, REALLY try to write myself this letter. In it I plan on including my fears about law school, moving to a new place, and hopes for myself. It will be a good writing experience for me. Now I just have to figure out where to hide it for three years.

    I meant to do that before I started, because I knew I would question the decision later on. Of course I didn't write it, and now I regret it because I actually find myself pretty unhappy with the whole enterprise and it would be helpful to remember why I ever thought this was a good idea :).

    So if you are the type who finds yourself prone to second-guessing yourself, you should really write that letter.

    I know I'll second guess myself, I'm actually doing it now.

    I have this feeling that my idea of law school combined with my experience of law school will be very different. Which is why the letter will be good insight later on.

    I believe the person you are now as you start law school will also be very different than the person you will become when you graduate from law school. :)
