1L's - Talk about your first semester, your experiences and impressions!

For those of you 1Ls with early classes, how long did it take you to make the adjustment to waking up so early? My schedule now has me out until 3am and I am not functional the next day until at least noon. I want to have fun with my friends this summer before school but it takes my body a while to get used to schedule changes. Anyone care to comment???

Your "schedule?" Is that a work schedule or a party schedule?

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this has already been discussed, but I can't look through 6 pages to find out. 

One of my friends that is a 3rd year said he pretty much always studied from 8-5 everyday, like a full time job, and that was enough to be totally prepared and do well in LS.  Thoughts?

I'm also concerned about having enough time for things like relaxing and exercising.  I turn into a total a-hole if I don't exercise regularly and keep myself both mentally and physically fit.  Will I have time for that?  Or am I living in fantasy land? 

Thanks!
