Dumb things that we said as 0L's
« on: May 11, 2009, 07:52:23 PM »
1. I'm NEVER going to surf the internet during class.

2. I'm going to brief EVERY case for class.

3. I had to read a lot in my undergrad major, so I'm sure I can handle a little more in Law School.

4. I'm sure I'll go to every class in LAW SCHOOL.

5. I'm going to hand-write all my notes because I did it undergrad and I can REMEMBER things better.

cui bono?

6. I got As throughout my education...law school should be no different.

7. The LENGTHIER my briefs / outline the better.

8. I'll have time to be an" officer" in all 7 campus organizations that interest me + law review

9.(repeat) I will brief every case

Man, speaking of folks that advocate this stuff, my publisher wants me to in my book. (oh,BTW, ya'll know how me and A joke about my writing a book ; well I actually wrote one). He wants me to advocate that BS! He says our way of looking at summer prep makes us sound like a bunch of hippies and that there is no diff in one's abilities between the summer b4 law school and a few weeks in. I feel like I'd be selling out if I cave.
