hey bass I'm sorry if I sound like a jerk, but come on, look at what Luxor is asking for? Also, asking the wrong people. How would soon to be 1Ls know the answer to that question, at best they could speculate. I apologize for being a jerk but that's a stupid question, similar to the ones on the studying for the lsat section. Also, look at what "thehardestpart" asked. obviously there is reason why they recommend that you don't work, but "thp" had to ask soon to be 1L's the question, also some people may or may not be able to work, it would really depend on the individual. I guess i'm a jerk, but I just think these kinds of issues are a waste of time, with no real objective response available. Look if you got nothing to do with your time, and would like to increase the number of posts under your belt, then by all means, bring on the retarded questions. Hell i'll even throw in some, "I know some LS require you to have a laptop, but I was thinking of taking down all my notes on construction paper, and using crayons, what do you guys think?" I'm starting to wonder if "Thehardestpart" named himself that because the hardest part for him is forming a coherent thought.
