Year 3 Ain't Easy
« on: March 02, 2008, 10:03:27 PM »
Everybody says the third year is supposed to be so easy.  Not so much, Iím finding.  I mean, even if the assignments are twice as easy, itís at least twice as hard to get motivated to do them.  Anybody else finding this to be the case?

seriously you are a tool.  If a Blog is supposed to be a device that develops a network and benefits your 'presence' and assists your career.....then why would you run one like a feminine hygiene product-bag and *&^% all over everything you come in contact with by dropping your spam everywhere?

Did I say that was the purpose of the blog?  Just meant to entertain...that's all. :)

Wow, pretty harsh responses for a fair question. I completely agree that while you are much more law school savvy in your third year, motivation is harder and the course material is often harder as well. Also, at least at my school, we were still graded on a curve. So while I was much better at performing in exams, so was everybody else. I think the biggest reason why third year gets the reputation that it does is because while it may not be that much easier, your grades count WAY less than they did in your first year. Most students at the top schools already have jobs lined up and I'm betting it would take pretty bad grades for an employer to revoke an offer (any stories?). But for students that don't have an offer lined up, I would not get complacent in their third year.

Just my two cents.

It may be a harsh response, except this guy is a dirtbag on every single thread hawking his book.

For that matter, if it looks like you're posting just to hawk your e-book, you'll get a crap rating and harsh responses too.  But so far you've been pretty helpful, and muted in your website hawking.
