Lastly, don't take advice from C students, unless they have raised their grades to A's. Watch out because you don't know who you are getting advice from when you get to school.
So, here's some real advice...Review your class notes after class everyday. I did this everyday and it was the best thing I did.Don't over-prepare for class. You only need a general idea of what the case is about, you don't have to understand every little nuance and read each case three times. That's what the professor will explain during class.Start outlining as soon as possible and spend one-two days a week on your outlines.State the RULE on your exam. Many people think they understand this and then they get their exams back and realize they did not explicity state the rule in general terms, they just started applying it. That may be the difference between an A and a B. Lastly, don't take advice from C students, unless they have raised their grades to A's. Watch out because you don't know who you are getting advice from when you get to school.
Don't let your classmates stress you out, especially around finals.
Yup. I saved all those days I could be absent in class for finals time. I stayed away from school around finals time. I had pages of my outline stolen. People were desperate at my school. I hung out on the top floors of the undergrad library and studied for my finals because people were calling me at home. I wonder if exam time will be that bad in our second and third years.
