I was just checking out JDunderground.com and it is so bleeping depressing. I swear it seems like everybody there wants to off themselves at any minute. It kind of makes me wonder is this what lies ahead for me when I finally finish school and get out into the job market? But then I think again and wonder if they are just losers from the bottom of their class? Don't misunderstand me I know the market is tough, but geez!
I intend to send my applications in January after I get my LSAT Score (Yeah I know its super late). What I am wondering is what is an appropriate time to ask a professor for a recommendation? Should it be 2mos. before? 2wks?
Also, I plan to apply to like 8 different schools, should I ask my professor for 8 different letters? or can I make copies myself and send them?
I know everyone keeps telling you don't worry......no one will be paying attention. Though this is probably true I know you still don't want to mess up. I would just say be thoroughly prepared for class. When the professor calls on you don't get all crazy and nervous, but just answer the question and pretend that you are explaining something to someone you are comfortable with like a friend or family member. That kind of always put me at ease when speaking in front of the class. I wish I had some better advise to give you, but really I think you'll be fine.
Well honestly I've gotten in the habit of not allowing myself to eat before I study (Mainly because after I eat dinner I just naturally want to pass out for hours), so my motivation is supper! However I wouldn't really recommend this to anyone. I guess I kind of realized how twisted it sounds after I typed and reread my comment. As for long term motivation......of course its the satisfaction of having a career that I'm passionate about and having financial freedom.

I find this information very comforting. It kind of makes me feel better about possibly having more student loan debt than my parents' house is worth.
