The students are hard to peg. I actually was amazed at how each class seemed to have a personality of its own. My class was somewhat competitive, but at the same time most people seemed to be friends with each other and work together. There was really only one person who was known to hide books or anything like that. The class in front of me was about the same I guess. However, the class behind me, this year's 3L's, couldn't care less about anything. The on campus interviewers didn't even fill all their slot because people didn't even care to interview. It was weird. This year's 2L's, however, were EXTREMELY competitive. They were involved in every club and did every competition. Their grades were some of the highest I've seen (raw score, they still had a curve). So, as far as what you'll see, who knows.
The profs are inconsistant. Some are REALLY good, others are mediocre at best. As for your schedule, Brill will work you HARD, but you'll learn civil procedure well. He's known as one of the best when it comes to that subject. Unfortunately, I've never had Foster, Norvell, or Sampson and Sacharoff must be new. Norvell is supposedly boring, but not that hard either. Sampson is one of the easier Legal Writing Profs. Not sure what Foster's reputation is.
Hope that helps!
