So, how're you guys handling the impending change in scenery?

I'm on a bit of a rollercoaster myself...

Rollercoaster is accurate.  One day I feel totally on top of everything and ready to go.  The next day I panic and snap at people for no reason.  Anyway I am moving to my new place tomorrow so hopefully things will settle down once I'm busy with setting up, etc.  For the past couple of weeks I had too much time to think!  ;)

Get used to that roller coaster feeling.  Finals are in 5 days, and I've been up and down the roller coaster several times.  Sometimes I feel like everything is easy and I'm brilliant.  Other times, I feel like a complete moron.  I don't see that changing any time soon.

Seriously, though, you are going to have an amazing time.  This has been awesome so far.

That routine... helps you out in law school not so much. But might help you get laid when coupled with the disclosure that you're in law school.

In regards to the OP: Yes.

Surprisingly,saying you're in law school doesn't get you laid.

To all, don't freak out...its really not as bad as you probably think.  Its actually kinda fun.

[Also, thinking LS is fun REALLY doesn't get you laid ;D]

I like my school, so I'm not too worried.  My biggest worries are:

1. Freshman 15 -- I tend to gain weight when stressed, and I've already had to adjust my jean measurements.  I switched from straight leg to boot cut and I don't want to go all the way to relaxed fit.  Don't even get me started on cargo pants.  I'll probably play oompa loompa in order to discourage food abuse.

2. I won't like the material -- I worked through vault books about legal practice and litigation/transactional work, but I'm still scared that I won't like property, torts, contracts, and company.  If I won't like them, then that doesn't bode well for my ambitions.  Am I correct?  A few lawyers told me that you don't have to like LS in order to like legal practice.

3. Drama -- I hate drama.  I'm going to try to hang on the down-low for the first quarter until I understand the social scene.  Luckily, I have friends in the city from college, and they're generally willing to sip expensive German bocks while discussing Nietzsche.
Yep.
