Studying and Exam Taking / Re: How to spend dead week?
« on: December 03, 2005, 04:18:46 PM »
for those of you who do have dead week, how is it going?  I am having to go to the gym every day b/c if not I start losing my mind (interestingly enough I do not ordinarily go to the gym every day).  I was hoping I could save time by an every-other day thing.  The time is flying by, and I still feel underprepared despite maintaing a rigorous schedule all semester.

you could not pay me to go to the library at this point, although I was tempted to start a fight over office hours when some ppl tried to steal my time (and did when they barged in with their stupid questions).  I am all about the organic, fair trade coffee shop by my house.

My advice would be to get an undergrad degree.  You have good grades in high school, you may get some scholarship money or grants.  I worked my way through college and it was not that bad.  After 5 years (I think that number is correct) the LSAT will fall off your record, you will have a college degree, and retake the LSAT better prepared.

Good luck

Studying and Exam Taking / How to spend dead week?
« on: November 27, 2005, 10:29:38 PM »
So I start dead week on Wednesday, I am up to date on outlines, and have taken only 1 practice exam per class so far.  I dont have a real good strategy yet.  I am dividing time spent per class based on credit unit.  I just expect to memorize my outlines, do practice exams, read supplements & practice w/ the crunch time series.  Am I on the right track?  I also intent to eat well, work out, and attempt to sleep.

Anyone else crazy like me to actually be aiming for Dec 1 job applications?

weekdays 3-5, weekends, 8-10

it takes me longer b/c i am so easily distracted/ADDish

I agree w/ what has been said, and would like to add to the PIG analysis.  You should check out any model/student answers your prof has on file.  In looking at my K prof's past exams he seems to break it up into subquestions that encourage discussion of the relevant topics separately.  You should also show your prof your practice exam to see what he thinks.

good luck

As noted you should do it this summer b/c next summer you will be able to get paid work at a firm that is expected to make you an offer after you graduate.  At my school it is strongly suggested to do legal work over the 1L summer, and I have not heard of anyone who doesn't.  The tough part is that most summer 1L jobs are unpaid.
