Laptops are definitely necessary, and definitely get a thinkpad (X series). I use OneNote for all of my notes. If you're an organization freak like myself, it's much better than Word (can organize your classes by tabs, with, for instance, side tabs for each theme within a class).
Give me a pencil and a notepad. I thrive in chaos.
At risk of sounding very naive, I have a question about where to study....In my Master's program I have found it very convenient to study at home instead of in a library. I usually reserve time in my schedule to go to the library to spend about an hour prining out whatever resources I need and then take them home to study/work. This affords me the option of not having to find a babysitter so I can spend numerous hours studying and I can just get my work done in the wee hours of the night when libraries are closed and the kids are asleep. But it seems as though everyone studies in the library in LS. Is there a requirement/need to constantly access legal databases or reference materials that can't be removed? Any feedback on this is must appreciated.
