i agree with the Russian. i posted something similar a few weeks ago. my only other word of advice is to keep your mouth shut in class because no one wants to hear you talk anyway. people are paying too much to listen to the gunners talk and bring up bull hypos
Ok, here are a few points of information I would have liked to know when I was applying to law Whereas in undergrad you could probably read about 40 pages per hour, expect to only get through about 10 per hour in law school (reading notes and case brief not included).
In regard to the social aspect of law school, Do not think that your social life will end. It will suffer an instrumental blow, however, if you do the work during the week, work all day sunday at the library, and take most of saturday to review the week's past material - hey, you could totally go out on friday night. It sounds like I am being sarcastic, but when you are attending classes Monday - Friday, and while not in class, are reading, briefing, etc. in the library. When Friday night comes along, and know u can sleep as late as you want the next day, just as long as you know you will work your ass off for the rest of the weekend, I am all about getting a little bad. Not sure if this post made sense, but what I am saying is, If u wanna take one night out of the week, probably a friday night, it is possible. Oh and one more thing...this only pertains to the first 2 months of classes, cause once the first week of Nov. hits, it all hits the fan, social life goes out the window, and its all about livin in the lib!
