What else should I buy for One L
« on: August 03, 2006, 11:17:36 PM »
So as law school draws near, I am wondering what else i should buy to be completely ready for law school... i have the laptop, text books, but what about supplies? What should i get at office max? binders? how many higlighters? date book? anything you can think of cause my mind is going blank right now. Also, should I buy hornbooks and study guides right away, or wait till later on in the semester...

if anyone can list some essential materials and supplies for one L i would really appreciate it...

Have you read Law School Confidential? If not, I suggest you do so asap. The 2nd or 3rd chapter has a nifty pre-1L checklist that is taking a lot of the guesswork out of things for me.

Here is a partial list of some of the things I've gotten:

-- 36 three-ring binders in 1", 1.5", 2.5" and 4" sizes
-- One gross (144) legal pads
-- 10 boxes of #2 pencils
-- Battery-powered portable pencil sharpener
-- 24 mechanical pencils in case the real pencils go dull in a class where the professor prefers not to hear my battery-powered sharpener
-- 12 vials of replacement lead for the mechanical pencils
-- 8 dozen pens (one dozen each in blue, black, red, green, and several of those sparkle colors so favored these days by kids who have their own lockers
-- 450 highlighters in various colors (enough so I have five colors for my case books and a different color for each study aid)
-- pencil box to hold all of this (Hello Kitty because it was the most functional)
-- glue stick
-- safety scissors
-- 30 pocket packs of Kleenex
-- three combination locks (one spare in case I want to take over another empty locker and an extra spare in case they cut into my main lock for legimate homeland security purposes)
-- rolling backpack
-- small rolling cart to attach to the back of the rolling backpack
-- digital camcorder for recording lectures
-- lunchbox (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
-- triple refills on my prescriptions to save time during the semester (Lipitor, Xanax, Albuterol, Ritalin, Percocet, and a couple of different suppositories
-- 96 sheets of construction paper in various colors
-- cookie cutters
-- hemp twine
-- binoculars
-- fast-acting general purpose topical cream
-- emory board
-- water bottle with neck strap
-- clear pin-on name badge holder for my student ID card
-- inflatable seat cushion
-- business cards with my name, email, phone, graduation year, and school logo
-- 2 tape dispensers (one scotch tape desk dispenser and one packing tape "gun")
-- countdown timer
-- 16 reams of resume-quality paper

Can anyone think of anything else I might need?

By the way, there were two interns in my office last year who had these.

This is a foolish question.  Have you ever been to school before?
