Congrats. This is wonderful news obviously for you and your family.

Enjoy the moment, but realize something ... the the hard part really starts now.

Keep up the good (and hard) work.

MY MAN! I'm so happy for you now man, I'm up at 6 am doing a war dance to celebrate. I had the same feeling last week, and finally being able to telll your parents that their grind and sacrifice paid off makes all the reading and writing in the world seem like nothing.

Like Biglaw said though, our grind is just beginning. Bask in your success, but stay hungry.


Thanks for this too, sometimes I feel like no one around me can understand a feeling like this. its not like you're trying to brag but after coming from places where at times you had to decide between food and being late on bills, you want to celebrate occasions like this. Hopefully you've kept in touch with friends out of UG/HS that will be ecstatic to celebrate with you and come from a similar background. Grats again!!!!

OP here.

Thank you so much everyone, you're all fantastic and have helped make this an even more special time for me.

To the person who got a GED and the person with a parent in federal prison: Wow, you guys/girls are amazing. Good for you.

To others reading this. Don't feel guilty/shy, share :).

Now just parlay this into some sexual conquest(s), and you will be the envy of all attorneydom.

Bumping to say I'm on there same boat. Was contemplating dropping out and admitting the status quo was for me (everyone I know is in some min wage job) but I got an offer today and now it happened. Wanted to brag sorry
