This is what I learned from my short time on this site:

Everyone has their opinion, and they mostly conflict. Do what works for you. There are so many books out there - look for some of the books that people suggested on amazon.com, read a few pages, and see if you're interested.

Personally, I'm following PLS to a T, and I don't really care what anyone thinks. I'm not going to suggest you do the same, because you're not me.

 :D

We'll see how long that lasts.

Law school is not THAT hard.  Trust me.  Most of it is knowing some basic law and applying it to a fact pattern, with a slight twist.

Yeah, reading the restatements the summer before law school (as PLS II recommends) would not be fun!

Like hell I'll be interested.  Nobody cares about your grades but you, and even sometimes you don't care because you realize you prob won't have the grades to clerk and firms don't care about this *&^% once you're in the door.

Wow. Where did that come from? I sense a little bitterness.

Don't mind Wally.  You're absolutely right that you've gotta do what works for you.  Blinders up.  Just make it happen however you need to.
