My first year at LSU Law is in the history book. My first semester GPA was 3.5, second semester was 3.756 and cumulative is 3.628. Best grades: 2nd semester Legal Writing (4.0) and Constitutional Law I (4.0). Worst grades: Torts (3.1), Civil Procedure II (3.4) and Legal Traditions (3.4). I was in the top 10% of my first semester class; but for the entire year, top 4%–ninth in my class of 229.
All-in-all, I had a great year. I learned a lot of interesting stuff and worked my behind off. Law school is to college as college is to kindergarten. Be prepared to spend outrageous amounts of time reading, studying and writing.
