I feel I am a smart person, I am fully prepared to work my tail off at law school, and I am very confident in myself and my abilites; but let's be honest, everyone else attending law school feels the same way. If everyone wants to be at the top, what separates the top 5% frome everyone else? Are you saying it is effort/work-ethic?
Did you read any books or prepare at all before starting 1L, or did you just chill the entire summer? Grats on doing well by the way.
