Thank you for the details. Did you do any prepping before starting?  Was it a benefit to go part time at first?  I assume you didn't work?

Anything specific you'd like to know?
There is a posted summer reading list for entering students on CULSnet. Do you think it would be worthwhile to read any of these selections and/or cases over the summer, or a waste of precious free time?

Frankly, I did nothing to prepare except made sure I bought the right books for classes and made sure I knew how to get to each of the classrooms.  I didn't read any of the books on that summer reading list, although I'm sure some of them might be interesting or helpful.  I spent most of my last free summer at the pool, and I haven't suffered in law school for it.  :)

I worked two jobs during my first year, so any extra time I got from being a part-time student was spent at work.  I can't really speak on what it would be like to be a part-time student without a job, although I know that some people do it that way.
