my advice is to take the LSAT a couple more times. at the rate you're improving you'll get a perfect score next spring.

Really, drugs ARE suicide . . . in a way
i was wondering the same thing. and no, most law students at my law school aren't this square. there's just as much drinking and drug use as at any college...

I have a good question:
I just have to add my $.02 because the stuff i'm reading on this thread is getting insane. i'm a rising 2L and i was terrified at this time a year ago, worrying and going nuts about how i'd handle law school.
reading e&es in advance is a lousy idea. will you glean something? uh, sure. but they are called "supplements" for a good reason. i bought an e$e for almost every subject and it usually helped a lot, but only as a supplement. instead of reading e&es over the summer if you feel you have to do something, go to court every day and sit through morning calendar and trials and jury selection and talk to attorneys about what's happening. and watch paper chase and legally blonde 1 and 2.
making outlines after reading E&Es is not only a bad idea, it's a total waste of time. your e&e-based outline will end up in the garbage by the time you start outlining for finals. you have no idea what your professor will be teaching. every professor at every school is different and spends differing amounts of time on different things. when i talked to my friends in other sections that each of us would often mention what we were doing, and it barely resembled contracts, torts, or civ pro, even though we all took the same subjects.
please, for the love of god, just stop making your outlines. the best advice i got for how to prepare from law school was from an attorney friend who said "sorry if this sounds new age-y but the best thing you can do is clear your mind and get your life in order--have some fun, read books, see a movie every day, get drunk 4 nights a week...whatever gets you going because leisure time will slowly start evaporating once the semester starts"
