EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK

SO IT’S YOUR FIRST LAW SCHOOL EXAM PERIOD…

AND YOU’RE PROBABLY FREAKING OUT A LITTLE RIGHT NOW, AREN’T YOU?

SOMETIMES IT PROBABLY FEELS LIKE THIS:

OR THIS

OR EVEN LIKE THIS:

JUST REMEMBER: GRADES ARE A MEANS TOWARDS AN END

THEY ARE NOT YOU

THEY ARE NOT YOUR SELF WORTH

YOU, YOU ARE AWESOME.

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, YOU WILL BE OK.

PEOPLE WHO ARE DISAPPOINTED BY THEIR 1L GRADES STILL GET 2L JOBS

PEOPLE WHO DON’T GET 2L JOBS STILL GET ARTICLING POSITIONS

PEOPLE WHO DON’T GET ARTICLING POSITIONS ARE STILL VERY SMART, VERY COMPETENT, HAVE A WIDELY APPLICABLE AND VALUABLE DEGREE, AND WILL HAVE THE FREEDOM TO PURSUE ANY CAREER THEY WANT

IF WE COULD, WE WOULD GIVE YOU ALL TOP MARKS

REMEMBER WHAT GOT YOU HERE.

REMEMBER WHAT MAKES YOU AWESOME.

AND NEVER FORGET: DECEMBER MARKS DON’T COUNT.
