Before you joined us, what Boyd insight did you get from your sister Katlyn (Boyd '16)?
In terms of observations, I definitely saw just how hard law school is, and how much work it would take to be successful. In terms of advice, she told me to take advantage of every opportunity to meet and talk with my professors. She also told me to find a solid study group so that I had people to both bounce ideas off of, and act as a support group when one of us had the inevitable “I’m in over my head” panic attack.
What was the most important thing you learned last year as a 1L?
Balance is key. You need to take care of yourself, and can’t spend every second of every day doing school work. You need to relax and do non-law things and stay grounded to be successful.
Would you say your long-term career goals are now more in focus?
I have a better idea about what I want to do immediately after law school, but I’m still not sure about long-term. Hopefully I’ll have a better idea after the on-campus interview program.
Make your case: the all-time greatest TV sitcom is...
How I Met Your Mother. You laughed, you cried, and you became invested in the characters. While the series finale wasn’t ideal, the series itself was legen-wait for it-dary!
