Rejection is the one thing we all hurt and it may fall into depression. Considering the law career students who want to pursue as a law student they must want to apply for admission. Sometimes we have to face rejection from their side and may drop the dream to study in a particular law school. Here are some guidelines on how to manage law school admission rejection!
1. Take a break and build a good mental health
Find some time to spend with your family and friends and take some mental rest and avoid thinking about rejection and admission matters. Do not consider this as the end. Find other possibilities to move on and be positive that you will definitely find a way to your dream.
Engaging in physical activities will help you to reduce stress and anxiety. It also brings some positivity and actually feels better by improving your mental status and lifting your mood.
3. Re-evaluate your reasoning.
Try to re-evaluate yourself why you wanted to go to a particular law school. If the main reason is only because of the popularity of that particular school, in future it doesn’t help you to achieve success. Law school is a long three-year full-time program. So give yourself best to reflect on why you are doing this pursuit and what you’re really considering for in a program.
4. Think again about your options.
If you have that much passion to take a law career don’t look at the rejected option further. Just focus on the aim that what you want to become in future, and how it could make real and what are the other best options to continue this passion forward.
You probably have some good choices for law schools to attend even if not your dream school. Review the schools you are admitted and collect information detail about what the program offerings, cost of attendance, culture, clinic and externship opportunities, and job placements etc. If you have a strong passion to choose this as a career it doesn’t mean where are you studying. Whether it is a high ranked school or not popular it doesn’t make any effects in your studies.
5. Consider waiting another year and do preparations efficiently.
If you don’t have to go to another law school, consider waiting another year and prepare like the best and make your dreams true. This time will agree to earn some money and experience, potentially re-take the LSAT if wanted, and apply again next year. Even though you will not be present this year, your application gets revised again next year without prejudice. Most the law schools and employers value students with work experience as a benefit to rush into attending law school if you’re not ready.
6. Option to transfer.
Even if you’re firstly rejected from your dream school, you have another option of the transfer. That is transferring law school programs include between your 1L and 2L year and you have again chance to apply for your dream school. Sometimes the students have difficulties to transfer because of their affection with the friends and communities in your school. However, for those that achieve well in their 1L year, many are able to well transfer to their dream law school before their 2L year.
