Actually, there was no secret. When I first enrolled, I was considered a “freak". Some people thought I was “not good enough" to read law for what I am: a former actress. To avoid strange looks from others, I chose to sit in the front row.
After that, I studied hard to prove to myself that I am not what they think. I gave up all entertainments including going to movies, watching TV and reading anything other than law books.
I spent every lunch break in the library studying, creating more time for myself while others wasted their time in the canteen. I rushed back home after school to re-organise my lecture notes and to prepare for the next day, always reading ahead. Besides, I used a tape recorder to record all the lectures so that I could listen to them while I was travelling to and from school. By listening the second or third time, you will be amazed how much you have missed while sitting at the lectures. This, if regarded as a studying tactic, should be the biggest secret I had.
I always believe, 要了不起，先要忍受被看不起！It matters not how people look at you, it matters how you look at yourselves.
