so, one semester down and another almost 1/3 over.

how ya feeling now?
like it?  hate it?  at least its better than working?
anyone getting any new nookie?

Im going to be an optimist on this thread - even though it is Friday night and I am in the library.  :(

I really like school. I used to work 60+ hours a week in a very stressful job that I didnt like at all.  Now I put in that much time, but I get to wear jeans and jammies instead of suits, and I get to study on my own schedule.  Plus - I find all of the material pretty interesting.  I know this makes me a huge dork - but I cant help it.   

I do think that Legal Writing/Research takes up way too much time - Id take 2 other "regular" classes just to get rid of it.

Yeah, our workload is much worse this semester.  We have the three doctrinal courses, plus an elective, plus Legal Practice.  Luck of the draw dealt my section tougher courses this semester (imo, at least - reasonable minds could differ on this one.)  Our Legal Practice class has a lot more work this time around (we've already done the first oral argument and two writing assignments and it's the second week in February.)  Plus we had to worry about finding summer jobs.  Plus (not to trot this one out again, but...) I never got a break between semesters, so the tank is running dry.  Yeah, I know, poor Jolie.  ::)  Anyway, I think it's with good reason that we're all finding this semester more stressful. 

p.s. I never briefed either.  Not my bag.

Mine does too. Last semester it seemed like forever before we had assignments due - now we have huge assignments due almost weekly. hmm... what a pain in the ass.

Are those the same people who would mistake you for red., Jolie?  :D

And to think some people still believe in the single red theory (the magic red theory to conspiracy theorists).

Wow, that's rough. My school is treating legal writing like an actual 2-credit course this time so we have one assignment and one oral argument. I still think this semester is worse because I really don't like any of my classes and it seems like all my classmates share the same sentiments.

First semester was a good time.  This semester is rough . . . just . . . rough.

I'm sure I said good things about law school last semester, but this semester is about 58395174586127486726 times worse, so it's pretty hard to be positive when I feel like I'm constantly getting my ass kicked.

Our section got bad professors for classes this semester and that makes it tough all around.  These bad professors also upped the reading load, and one upped it even more with his stupid tests, so we are basically drowning under work. 

I briefed all the time last semester, but I'm starting to slide back on it because I have time.  I ended up starting a Torts Pool with 2 friends so we split the reading 3 ways and I'm probably going to have to do the same with Property.  I'd rather read *&^% on my own, but I can't get through it all very closely anymore.

Plus the whole OCI/summer job search looming makes everything more stressful.
