Do you have any hints/tips for doing well at UT? Did you read any books that were helpful in preparing for 1L and/or exams?
Congrats on the internship.
I read the Turow book and "Getting to Maybe", but I can't point to either one and say they really helped me.
My biggest hint/tip would be simply that the students at the top of the class are not the students who are going out on Thursday and Friday night or looking for a bf/gf or mailing it in for the first half of the semester and trying to make up work over the last months. The students who excel tend to start preparing for finals immediately, i.e. memorizing and working on outlines form Day 1.
And, no, I did not fall into that category initially.
As an aside, someone pointed out to me this thread which identifies Toledo as the second-most generous law school in American when it comes to scholarship awards based on 2008 ABA data:http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=71863&p=1764332&hilit=toledo#p1764332
