just finished first semester of 1L - did pretty well too...still can't seem to get motivated for this semester, been leaving all my work to the last minute, doing it in the morning before class, and not being able to pay attention at all during class....Is this a normal thing after first semester? I am gonna end up doing real bad if this continues...does it get better?
I will say, at least from my experience as a 1L, second semester of 1L was the “hardest” at least in doing well grade wise. I did great first semester, but second semester the competition got tougher, everyone who did poorly or mediocre was putting in 110% and trying different study methods. My grades went down slightly second semester of 1L (same with most of my friends who did well) and many peoples grades went up who did poorly. I just found, of all semesters so far, second of 1L was the most competitive, at least in my class. So if there is any semester to shake it off quickly, this is the one to do it in.
