I don't think law school owns me. I'm in my second semester. I got 8 hours of sleep every night last semester, had dinner every night with my husband, still managed to attend family functions, and left town for a weekend in November. It's all about time management. (and yes, I got good grades too)

It really depends on the location. In a rural area, it could be 40-50 hours a week. Urban ADAs often work much longer hours.

I'm wondering the same thing. And since only one of my professors posts old exams, I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to figure it out until exam time.

No, we have one of these guys in our section too. As soon as he opens his mouth, all the eyes begin to roll.

I think you answered your own question. You really shouldn't need permission to go to the library - if that's what you want to do, just go do it.

I know of a couple of JD's who are administrators at universities or private schools.

It's a T2. And I guess that remains to be seen. I'm pretty sure I'll be just fine though. Thanks for your concern.

This isn't a pissing contest so I'm not going there...

Have military experience as well, am a federal government employee, and obvioiusly have done well enough at what I do that uncle sam will be paying for me to go to a Top 25 university.

Good luck to you wiz.  I have better things to do than see who has what credentials.  Obviously yours didn't amount to much if they have you going to PSU this fall.

Believe it or not, one's law school is not necessarily a reflection of one's credentials. I could have had a nearly-free 3 years at a top 25 law school too, but I chose Penn State instead, for a variety of reasons. It's foolish to assume that everyone goes to the best school to which he is accepted, or that you can accurately judge one's abilities and credentials by her choice of law school.

Kilroy, if you don't mind sharing, what were your stats? (LSAT/UGPA) Maybe innate ability comes into play more than we realize.

lol.  That is funny.  If you go by my stats, I was a pretty average student in undergrad.  LSAT 160 UGPA 2.7

I was a chemistry and history double major. 

Ok then  :) Your LSAT score was in the top 25% of the incoming 1L's though - perhaps that gave you an advantage in terms of class rank. In either case, I feel better about the time commitment associated with law school after talking to you  :)
