Sometimes I sit back, like right now, and let it really sink in that I'm going to law school. That's huge! As much as I'm on this board, it's easy to think of it so in the abstract that the reality is so often lost to me.
Then I think, further, to the fact I'll actually be competitive for some of the nation's top schools! That's absolutely flabbergasting, and I get taken aback at times and can't believe it. A year from now, I could be going to a T-14 (or maybe not, who knows?)! That's really humbling, and none of it's real to me right now. But the thing that got me on this kick is I sat back a minute ago and thought, you know, I could ACTUALLY end up going to Berkeley! How cool would that be? Because right now, that's not even real to me. I'm just some country boy from small-town Ohio. Why do I deserve consideration at the nation's top law schools?
Is anyone else just humbled by this amazing opportunity we all have? We should just sit back and be grateful sometimes for what we have.
