It's not just about how much you study, it's also a matter of strategy - figuring out exactly what you need to know, how you can express what you know on exams etc.
Being competitive and wanting to one-up the other guy if great in the scope of academic ranking. Remember, however, that in the workplace cooperation and helping your team is invaluable. You have to develop those skills/mentality too.

It's not necessarily a good idea to choose your school based on it's ranking in a specialty area. This is an issue I am currently looking into myself with IP. Some sources will tell you to ignore the specialty ranking and just go to the best ranked school you get into. If it's entertainment law you're interested in, do a search for the top/largest entertainment law firms in the country, or those located in the region where you want to practice; law firms often have a search option where a user can look up staff (associates, clerks etc.) by which law school they attended. This may give you some insight into where they hire from.

do you think schools reject bc of an unimpressive option essay? assuming the rest of your application is good? ... or is it just a question of whether you take the time to write an optional essay?
Oh, no, right. I didn't mean that slapping a couple sentences together was enough. It certainly has to be a decent essay. I just don't think they expect the length or depth of the personal statement. I put quite a bit of thought into my optionals...
