I read the same thing in law school confidential, and its not something that should necessarily be aiumed specifically at law schools, but really at life in general. Now, having grown up in a furniture store, I can say that you don't need to spend over 500 dollars for a great nights sleep. But any time in your life when you need to do what you can to minimize stress and distractions, a great nights sleep is essential, and a good bed is the most important part of that. It goes right along with not having a roomate and not living next to a loud frat house. Minimize stress, minimize distractions.
