11 Shows Every Future Lawyer Watches

These aren't your basic shows, either.

11 Shows Every Future Lawyer Watches

Obviously, I'm a Political Science major and I 100% plan on going to law school following my undergrad years. Recently, I've started preparing for my LSAT and other practice tests so I'm reading, studying, and watching these 11 shows...

1. For The People

This show is nice because the actors are all playing characters barely older than I am, so it's a nice refresher from other lawyer shows.

2. Evil Genius

This is a confusing (twisty) series, that can force you to practice connecting evidence, suspects, and multiple cases.

3. How To Get Away With Murder

This is probably the most dramatic fictional series, but it's interesting to see the big, the bad, and the cover-ups.

4. Making A Murderer

Making A Murderer is hard to watch sometimes, watch and you'll see why.

5. The Good Fight

If you love badass women (who doesn't), watch The Good Fight.

6. Designated Survivor

Designated Survivor is just freaking awesome. I wish Tom Kirkman was my president.

7. American Crime

American Crime is fictional, but shows very real modern issues. Watching a fictional show usually leads people to get more educated on subjects that it portrays, which is important for ANYBODY to do!

8. Casting JonBenet

Casting JonBenet takes a look from multiple different angles: evidence, prosecutors, friends, etc. Everybody has a different idea of what happened, so what is yours?

9. The American Revolution

So, if you're like me... you have a dad that grounded you and only allowed you to watch this show whilst being grounded. Look at me now, almost a lawyer. (Obviously, he did something right!)

10. Black Mirror

Need to improve your cognitive thinking skills? Welcome to Black Mirror.

11. The Last Defense

If you haven't heard of Darlie Routier, please go watch this ASAP.

These shows all give you something different. Maybe one makes you get inside the head of a criminal, while the other teaches you how to connect the dots. Each of the shows (while some fictional) gives you different skills to develop, while being 'entertained' and stimulated. Definitely check these shows out!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
