Anyway, I think at this point, I've got a dead horse too, and I'm flogging it for all I'm worth. I'll just close by saying to the OP, 1 hour a day seems fine. Take the danged LSAT and get into Law School, then work like a mutha to be first in your class.
Dear Horse -
Glad to see you're still breathing. Where's that bat?
For the OP (and everyone else contemplating law school), how about this . . . reverse those. Work hard on the LSAT. Very hard. Very, very hard. Way more than an hour a day. Give yourself options like you've never had before. Give yourself not just options, but money . . . scholarship money that is reserved for those the schools want. With a sufficiently high LSAT, at most schools, you'll be amazed at just how nice it is to be attractive.
Then, in law school, do NOT go crazy like everyone else. Great grades do not follow mere "work." This, in my view, is where so many law students go so wrong . . . and why so many are so unhappy. Law school should be fun. Really. Done right, it is. (And, psst, this is how the best students do it . . . and they're not always the hardest-working students.)
The relationship between effort and result is clearer with the LSAT. And it too should be fun. Really. If not, go back to the initial questions. Do you really want to do this? Three years and a quarter of a million dollars?
