In elementary through high school, I was the "smart" one. I always did the work I had to but little beyond that. I rarely studied more then 5 minutes for a test and somehow always did well. Once I got to college and got my first set of midterm grades, I realized that my former methods would not longer work. I was able to work harder and apply myself in order to get good grades. However, I still dont think I had to work all that hard. I would hear people say they were in the library for 8 or 9 hours a night and I would have had all my work done in half the time. I am actually a little bit worried about law school, because I know I will have to really work hard and I am not sure If I am going to be able to dedicate myself. I guess I will find out soon enough.
