Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Hours of studying???

Yeah - I agree with what you're saying.  I couldn't possibly work EVERY day.

I do find that this semester I'm getting my work/reading done a lot quicker by "book briefing" instead of briefing separately.  I think that briefing was necessary for me last semester b/c I wasn't used to reading cases, so I had to think harder about what was important, but now I just color-code highlight and make notes in the margin.  It takes much less time and I understand it the same.  I just take notes on the cases during class while we're talking about them.

When I say "study" I mean everything for school (reading assignments, etc.)

3 or 4 hours outside of class on a good day (i.e. studying a lot) ... I usually don't do any work on Saturdays.


Top 3rd of the class last semester, in case that helps.

I think it means that the author/judge is trying to hide that he/she has no idea what he/she is trying to say.

1L job search / Re: no idea what i am doing here

Doesn't your CPD (Career development people) help you out?  We get "postings/emails" about potential jobs (although very few in our area so far - I'm holding out, b/c they apparently hire later).  If they don't actively help you, then you should go talk to them - they DO have connections (provided that you don't have any connections to lawyers in your family or group of friends).

From what I've heard, you have plenty of time ... places hire through June (yes, through June ... I know that might be a little late to start, but still).  Some smaller firms and some judges just don't think about hiring this early, so there will be a lot of places that start hiring in March or April for the summer.  Or you could start talking to professors about opportunities (like researching with them or other options).

It isn't hopeless ... there are just a lot of overly eager beavers in LS. :D

General Board / Re: Should I drop out?

Haha ... I agree with the "no better off w/o law school" argument ... I mean, even if I did not well at all in law school, at least I would have that degree.  If I dropped out in the middle ... what better job would I get with my fancy liberal arts (English) degree?

lol ... loved studying it, but not overly practial for making money.  Law/grad degrees help give you more ooomph.

If you are looking for exam prep info. odds are you didn't. 

I'm not ... this isn't my thread.

I understand the aversion to LEEWS - it's freaking audio tapes / CD's that you have to listen to ... who does that anymore?  I want a book that I can read/re-read and skim/skip parts that don't apply.

Maybe this aversion to working through something is why you didn't do as well as you had hoped to begin with. 

If you don't want to listen to the tapes, go to the one day seminar.

Who said I didn't do as well as I hoped?
