Comprehensive list of BLM Resources:



  1. It's not even that people won't remember your cold call. They will, but they'll remember it because it takes so much pressure off them, and your pressure gets offloaded by the next blown call. It's all about shared suffering babyyyyyyyyyyy

  2. This is your bachelor degree class too. Especially in criminal justice.
    I’m so glad I came across your channel. I want to go to law school and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to succeed. But I feel much better now

  3. Im so glad I came across this video. I’m currently a senior in high school and my current plan is to go to law school after completing a couple years at a community college. I feel like I would be really good at most of it but I’m so worried that I won’t be good enough. This video helped me a lot, so thank you! im curious of what type of work specifically has to be done. I know you mentioned some assignments but I’m not sure what any of that means. I also have no clue what branch of law I would want to do and I was wondering if you had to choose that right away or not.

  4. Omg thank you so much! This has been of great help. I've been binge watching all law school related videos and most of them have been scary and about how difficult law is gonna be. This video was such a relief. I feel so much better! Thank you!

  5. Do you think it would be possible to go to law school with 2 children? I am really considering going but I am unsure if I would be successful… I have a 5 year old and 1 year old!

  6. ….and!….Umm?? …"Class-Mates"?!….I, I don't know!…. I remember during my "University-Classes" none appeared post "Lunch-Hour"!…and I had to sit alone "All by My-Self"…in-side the "Class-Room"!….😃👓

  7. Thank you for this video!! The part where you discussed cold calls made me feel so much better. I took an intro to law class for undergrad last year, and my professor ran his class cold-call style. I always got so anxious for class and would be ashamed of admitting that I didn't know.
