I'm excited! I don't feel like it is in a blind, stars-in-my-eyes kind of way either. I get that LS is very hard, but think of all the people who have come before us and gotten through law school too.  I think it is doable. :)

Current Law Students / How Realistic is the book One L?

I posted this question on the prelaw board too, sorry to repeat myself: I just finished the book (a true account of the author's first year at HLS in the 1970s, in case anyone doesn't know).

I thought it was a fascinating read. It made law school seem intense and very challenging--for me these are positive adjectives. What do people who have been 1Ls think of the book?  How true to real life is it?  How about the portrayal of the other students, and of the professors?

Also, if I am going to a school that is ranked high up in the second tier (as opposed to a school like Harvard), how similar/different do you think the experience would be from the author's? Thanks!

How could that be right?  It's hardly mathematically possible if you just think about it a little bit before getting worked up.  12 hours including class, maybe thought is shouldn't even be that much.  But 12 hours stuyding is just ridiculous if not impossible.

I'm not worked up. I was interested in hearing other people's takes on how long they usually study. Anyone else?

(Thanks to everyone who responded, btw).  :)

Anybody studying 12 hours a day for the whole semester is doing something wrong.

I am so relieved! I wonder why that student I met told me that? It didn't seem like he was being a jerk and trying to scare me. But I digress...

Thanks so much for the info guys. I am really interested in hearing about other people's study plans that have worked for them. :)

tag...great thread!

That is much more along the lines of what I was thinking! Thanks :)

Anyone else have ballpark estimates of how much they study?

When I visited a law school over the weekend, one student told me that I can expect to study twelve hours a day. I know law school is a lot of work, but twelve hours a day on a regular basis? Is that right? :) Thanks!
