I have finally decided to take my education journey into law school and so this is officially the start of my LSAT studying journey.
I will have a separate playlist to start a series on studying for the LSAT and hopefully, I can inspire others to go for their education & career dreams no matter what and not feel alone while studying.
I was originally diagnosed with ADD as a teenager at around 12 years of age before the DSM was updated. I was never given the proper treatment or help other than being placed automatically into IPP classes up until high school.
Once I entered high school I started a program that would give me more hands-on learning to complete my high school diploma, but what I did not realize is that I would not have a high school academic level math and English course. Fast forward to the time when I had found out I was pregnant with my son, I quit halfway through completing the flight attendant course as my living accommodations were no longer stable and I needed a full-time job to help prepare me for a child.
After having my child, I found out about a program that was geared toward students with lower than the average high school GPA and or who just have been out of school for many years. I completed this program and received a scholarship towards completing an undergraduate degree program at the school that I currently attend.
I have always just thought I was dumb in high school while I struggled to focus enough in school. And so as a 25-year-old trying to complete an undergraduate degree, you can only guess how much stress I’ve had to overcome in order to learn how to successfully get through University. I have not been medicated until just recently and since I’ve been medicated, I have seen a dramatic change in my grades as I am simply able to study more effectively. I went from a B-average student to receiving straight A’s for my grades in University.
After seeing so many social media posts about how adults with ADHD are successful at studying Law, I have finally come to terms with myself that it can be possible for me. And possible for someone who haves struggled in academics all her life because of having ADHD. With the right guidance and learning techniques, learning can be a more leveled out playing field for someone with ADHD.
At the same time, ADHD not only haves some disadvantages while studying but having the diagnosis can also be a blessing in disguise as most ADHD usually think outside the box and are more natural design thinkers with having the ability to have outstanding problem-solving skills, having resilience and being able to hyper-focus more easily.
I love your transparency! Good luck, you can do it!!
