Welcome ASP Students!

"Law school is very much like exploring a foreign country without a map. Expect to get lost. Expect to be frustrated and confused. Expect, at times, to be frightened. Remember, however, that most 'travelers' make it out alive and feel good about having found their way."

I came across this great quote last night in the book, Bridging the Gap Between College and Law School. It perfectly summarized the emotional roller coaster in store for the new 1L class. 

Today is day one of the Academic Success Program. As a graduate of the ASP program, I remember being anxious about meeting new faces and not knowing what to expect. The first few days were scary, but exhilarating as I was living my dream by starting law school. Sure, it was a struggle, but I made many friends and learned a lot along the way. My advice is to take it all in, learn what you can, and make the most of your time here at Regent. If going to law school is a dream you have always had, embrace it! You are here for a reason.
