I took 16 credits in each semester of my second year.  It was a mind-boggling amount of work, and I was really overwhelmed at times.  I wouldn't recommend it, but if you like pressure, go for it.  Obviously it isn't impossible, or I wouldn't be taking 16 credits again this fall.   :D

Crystal is working on them now and says they'll probably be available tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon.

Okay, disregard that last post.  Apparently they just didn't re-rank ME until the fall because of my transfer-between-divisions situation.  Rumor has it that ranks are available today--I'm going to go find out right now.

Here's some info on the attrition rate, among other things:

Do NOT let these boards freak you out.  A lot of people (including me, sometimes) come here when they need to blow off some steam.   :P  Just read through them so you can get an idea of what kind of experiences people are having.   

Almost everyone has concerns about the pressure and the workload.  As far as the work goes, nothing is insanely difficult.  I firmly believe that most people in the world could make it through law school if they had more than three years in which to do it; the most intense thing is learning how to manage your time.  Obviously, other people's opinions might differ, but that's mine. 

By the way, if you have any questions or anything and don't want to post them publicly, send me a PM and I'll help you out any way I can.

Last year we didn't get re-ranked until after all the summer classes were over (including the intensive ones)--at least that's what they told me when I went looking for my rank.  Sometime after fall semester started everyone got an email that said that class ranks were available.

If you practice in TN for a designated period of time, are you then eligible to take the bar exam or to qualify for reciprocity in other states?

If I had to guess, I'd say some of what you're feeling is jitters.  However, if you are seriously doubting whether or not you want to make the three-year (and multi-thousand dollar) committment to law school, give it some more thought before you decide to go.  Talk to people you know in law school and/or browse around these boards and see what law students really think about and do during their three/four years.

If you're just nervous about starting, that's completely normal.  If you really want to go, don't freak yourself out of law school before you start.   ;)

Good luck!

Well I got my grades yesterday, and it was much better news than I expected.   ;D  Now I only have to endure the grade wait two more times!

I have to give credit to the registrar's office, they got those puppies out fast once the professors finally got them in.

I'm not usually a study aid-purchasing kind of person (library = free study aids for all!), but I broke down and bought the S&S for Wills and Trusts.  I'll be traveling a lot in the next two weeks, and I figure I can listen to them while I'm in the car.  I have a feeling it's going to make a 5-hour drive seem like a 10-hour drive, but maybe (hopefully) I'll learn something.
