Didn't realize that cross-posting would be seen as obnoxious (or even noticed). Learning. Dupes deleted.
As to your remark about STUDENTS, I am one, now that I have been offered admission and plan to accept it, and my questions pertain to success during law school, not before. Everything I have heard suggests that it's best to hit the ground running. You may know how. Posting to a board of fellow newbies would strike me as a waste of time.
Thanks for the substantive responses. Always good to learn from one's elders.
a) no students post on the pre-law board; which is a fallacy.
b) that studying prior to school will help you. I'd suggest this is, for most, a fallacy, also.
I believe the advice from Red, which is wait to see what you need, is good advice.
And personally, I don't really consider you a student until you've actually attended law school, your current sense of entitlement not withstanding.
I'd carry it a bit further and not consider someone a "student" until they have returned the second semester after learning their grades from first semester. Anyone can play law student first semester and bomb the finals.
