The larger question you are asking is, "Is is possible to be successful in law school without any prep work?" I haven't gone to law school yet, which is true of most of us here. Based on the information I have, I would say that is absolutely possibly. I would say those that heavily prep are actually in the minority. I talked to the senior class prez at Hastings and he said most students didn't prep before school in his class.
I know there have been other threads along a similar line. Prep work probably assists in increasing confidence, but "thinking like a lawyer" is a skill that can only be honed in law school. So, I think absolutely someone could be successful w/o prep. I think I will prep a bit since I know it can't hurt.
