I just finished the book (a true account of the author's first year at HLS in the 1970s, in case anyone doesn't know).
I thought it was a fascinating read. It made law school seem intense and very challenging--for me these are positive adjectives. What do people who have been 1Ls think of the book? How true to real life is it? How about the portrayal of the other students, and of the professors?
Also, if I am going to a school that is ranked high up in the second tier (as opposed to a school like Harvard
), how similar/different do you think the experience would be from the author's? Thanks!
