General Board / Re: Top 10 Percent
« on: June 20, 2009, 07:24:10 PM »
Pay attention in class.
Do all of your assigned readings.
Attempt an answer when called.
Outline as semester winds down.
Finish outline, go to review (if applicable), take practice exams.
Take exam.

Just do that. Don't focus on survival or top 10% or whatever.  Do the above and the law school gods will tell you where you stand (which will undoubtedly be above people such as myself who don't do above.) Let the other 0Ls over-analyze law school.

I'm well above median and I successfully outlined only a single class.  Coincidentally, it was my worst grade.  I also did about 50% of the assigned reading for most of my classes and ended up doing quite well.  One of the keys is to get a case summary book specific to your sections casebook.  In my experience, reading every inch of every case is not only unhelpful... it can be detrimental.  Your time is better spent on gaining an understanding of where the ruling fits into the big picture than you are worrying about the details of the case. Outlining is great, if it works for you.  I just used a bunch of old outlines from previous students.  Again, it seems to work better for me to not sweat the mechanics or the details.
