To narrow it down, what is one thing you regret not doing to increase your academic success in your first year??????

I regret not taking more time off over spring break.  I really felt burned out by finals - i did fine, but i think i could have done better.  Also, i regret taking all the practice tests too far in advance of finals (like 1 week).  I wish i had done them closer together so i was a little bit sharper.

This isn't really 'academic success' but I regret not trying out for the moot court board. I spent a lot of time studying, and never paid attention to campus-stuff.

I regret the LSAT kicking my ass rather than me kick its ass. Aside from that though, my study and job plan have been running without any problems, as usual.

yea hofstra!

umm... my only regret: not dating enough

I spent too much time on school my first year and didnt have much fun.  I got the grades I needed, but I probably could have done that with less effort.

I feel like I did the 1L thing pretty well.  If I were to do it again, I would have started working with my study group more often and earlier; we had a pretty good group pulled together and we all studied best in a group setting.  I would have started dating earlier.  I would have hosted a couple of more parties.  And I would have looked at supplements earlier.

I really wish I would have did more coke. I've yet to run across a lawyer coke and stripper party.
