I dispute number 2. I think that, while some people are crazy, they are crazy from a distance. The closer you get to most people, the more you notice the distinction between sane and crazy break down. Some "normal" people have strange OCD habits when you live with them, as I discovered with a college roommate, and some "crazy" people are simply not as good at communicating their comparative sanity to others. I also think that crazy, in a law school context, means that they're fixated on grades and stressed, but everyone is to an extent.4 is good advice, but extremely hard to follow in the trenches. I think that the best way to avoid it is by examining your own grades carefully, and study habits. I have a friend who majored in government and econ and can nail a policy question without listening in class. I . . . do not have that ability. So I need to study policy.I agree that it sucks. But, again, this depends on your goals and attitude.
Itís interesting to see the different reactions. When I come to this board, the operative words are, worried, crazy, freaking out and hard. In the real word everyone says its manageably difficult. I canít wait to see it for myself.
I personally felt pretty calm for most of first semester, but I wonder if that's largely a result of my outlook (which was very influenced by reading that email). I had a lot of spare time and stayed on top of my work.
