How to Prepare for Orientation

  First off, congrats, you're going to be starting law school soon! I hope you're taking some time to relax before the fall semester kicks off--don't worry, this blog will still be waiting after you take some time for yourself.  Now that you're back and well-rested, let's get down to business. This upcoming week will be my third time going through 1L orientation (once as a 1L and twice as an orientation leader), so I'd like to think I know a little bit about how to best prepare for the days ahead.  To prepare for this blog, I reread my orientation blog that I wrote way back in 2019. It's been a wild two years since then, so it was great to refresh my memory about how I was feeling before I knew anything about law school. If you're feeling anxious as the first day of classes get closer, just know that it will all make sense eventually and you'll be wondering what you were so worried about in the first place.  Related: Law School Orientation Overview
