Did anybody take a law preview class? worth it?
« on: April 22, 2008, 04:03:25 PM »
I'm going to start law school next fall. I was wondering if anyone here took a six day law preview class. How was it was it worth the money?
thanks

I don't really think it is...

I didn't take one, and I'm in top 15 percent.. girl I know did, and she's in top 50 percent. (But maybe she would've been in lower half if didn't, who knows.)

I think they're very good...for the people who are running them.

Personally I'd say save your money and have fun this summer.

I took one.

And now, as I approach the end of my 1st year, I recommend you do NOT.

Just get drunk everyday and enjoy your time before school begins.

Trust me, once you hit exams and stressful periods of 1L, you wont be like Gee I am glad I took that preview class, but instead you will be saying I should have been drunk.

Goodluck

Great advice (not being sarcastic)

I was thinking of doing the whole law preview thing, but the only class I can go to I think is right before I start law school. Now I don't know about the rest of you, but when I undertake something I try 110% and after a while I get burnt out (I'm still recovering after the burn out of my last endeavor). I definitely don't want to burn out too soon in law school so I'm just going to get take it easy, get some sun, and have a good time.

I suggest anyone else pulling their hair out do the same, or you'll be bald by November. Save some hair for finals guys.
