Yes, Nupe. The reality will go upside your head once you get that first assignment.  Law review already gave us our first asignment and part of it was due Monday. Had a brother up in the library in work clothes pullin Federal Reporters off the shelf at 10 o'clock at night.

I remember lookin at those orientation assignments before 1L like, WTF??  Whatcha'll want me to do with this?  OK I read it and I still don't understand what its about.  :P
