hk04, I'm SO not the gunner type. I'd have to have a clue before that would be possible
I've been told by some current students that in order to prep I should just HAVE FUN this summer to ensure I come in fresh b/c 1L is hard enough. So I'm not sure quite yet. They did say to make sure you have mad typing skills for exams.
Russiankitty, my only concerns were really w/ debt and those have since been overcome by talking to all the current students that explained how being in the middle of the class GUARANTEED them the job of their choice in the city of their choice. Now obviously they're biased, but they said they were blown away come interview time b/c the firms really wanted Harvard, Yale, Chicago. They were being sought out more than they had to seek. They all got GREAT jobs wherever they wanted, just by being average. Remember, no class ranks! Also, as far as econ goes, I think that's a speciality of the school but not necessarily something they require in every class. Don't think it would be a big deal, but that's just my $.02.
