i have decided to read some to get a few concepts and terms into my head, but not overdo it.  i've heard too many criticisms of over-preparing prior to law school.  but, like most things, it all varies with the individual.  so, yes, i'm going to get into some primers...just not going to overdose on them. 8)

What criticisms of over-preparing prior to law school have you heard?  Perhaps it will help readers to guage whats considered overdoing etc. Thanks!

ALready, I am somewhat nervous about law school and wondering if I should really order the "PRIMER" books and start preparing.  I brought up my concerns to my friends who are practicing lawyers re: their law school educational experiencesa and such, they said that they personally did not have such of a hard or bitter experience. Instead of wokring hard before school starts, I should spend that time relazing so that when school does start I will be ready to go into study mode and not be burnt out already.

I'm only a little into PLS II and it is starting to make me a little nervous, too.  To be honest, the author's hostility toward law schools is a little alarming.  If I felt so strongly that law schools are in essence defrauding us, I would not go to law school. 

And I share your feeling having to do so much just to start a law education is a little overwhelming. 

I have a long time friend who graduated from Harvard LS in the seventies.  You know, the one that is described by One-L.  (my friend was one year behind Scott Turow).   His advise is similar to your friends.  Relax, rest and save the hard work for law school.

 :)

My only concern is that if I do relax, I am afraid that I will be doing the "I wished I did some pre-law school preparation" kinda thing when I am smack dab in the eye-of-the-hurricane 1L 1st semseter.  I mean, I guess it might not hurt to be like the boyscouts and "be prepared".

Currently I am employed at a one of the nations top law firm doing litigation support and have been here for about 9 months, in which I am fortunate to learn and experience the large firm atmosphere AND have the their name on my resume (even though they work me like a mule and pay not THAT great).  My rationale is that since law school starts around mid-to-end of august and orientation is about begining-to-mid August, I want to take all of July off and either all of June or most of June off to travel and do some pre-law studying.

I am sure it is certain, there won't be any free leisure time in the 3yrs (full time) that I am in law school.  Hence I shuold play and enjoy life now for a bit and do some studying like the "Primers".

What are my fellow PLS readers plans prior to law school?

Wow, I recently stumbled on to this "diamond-mine" forum and been reading it for the past couple weeks.

I am suprised to read about many peers in the simliar situatsions as I am.

Anyway, a co-worker who decided not to go to law school handed me PLS to read and I am halfway thru Ch. 5 at the moment.

I have also read more than half of "Broken Contract" written by a HLS.

HAAAAA HAAAA HAAAA!!!!

So true, dsong! I think they bore the hell out of most people (except maybe geeks like me) In fact, I laughed out loud during one of my practice LSAT RC questions that was a rant on Agricultural Biotechnology and the very pathogen I happened to be working on at the time!!

Don't know if they lifted the article from SA, though.

lol :D

I have to agree, as a molecular biologist....those RC were easy...esp when they talk about simple biological theories.

So I just caught up w/ the threads....I want to get back to a previous topic a bit....why most girls suck.  Yes, coming from me.

I am actually relieved to find that some of you other ladies have had troubles w/ other women.  Seriously, guys, I feel for you.  A lot of us SUCK!!!  Some are really great, but a lot do suck! 

I am starting to wonder if law school is full of independently-minded women who have better things to talk about then diamonds and weddings!  Ick!

Let's hope so, Tahoe.  I am hopeful to meet some women like that so I can finally have a female to relate to!

Seriously. It's so hard to meet cool chicks. All my friends are dudes and my closest girlfriends are my DAWGS from like, high school. I've had some other girl friends but then they decide to hate me cuz i've got unmentionables.

See that is just wrong!  The whole point of having female friends (IMHO) is so that she can introduce me to HER hot female friends...its like you bring your crew and I'll bring mine...

I agree that even the less than brilliant can receive great grades, however, I'm actually concerned w/ learning the material. I'd rather have decent grades (Bs) and really know my stuff rather than (A-s) and know it half ass.

But in law school if you know the material, you should be getting the As, not like how it is in undergrad.
