I will be a 2L at DSL this fall. For those of you on the fence, Dickinson is a great place. I have been happy with the choice that I made to attend. For the first semester, enjoy Torts, tolerate Criminal Law, and learn to deal with your Civ. Pro teacher (I had him for Con Law, many of you will have him for Civ. Pro.). The best advice I can give is pay attention from day one to your Legal Writing course. There is a lot of good information in the course that sometimes gets overlooked. For reading, I perused "Getting to Maybe" during the semester and got an A- in contracts, so I thought it helped.
