Creds: 2nd tier school, 3L, top 1%, published, law review, moot court, scholarship, circuit court clerkship lined up, biglaw to follow. I figured I'd answer some questions b/c 1) I'm arrogant and like attention, 2) I see some horrible advice on this and other boards, and 3) I'm procrastinating on a big assignment that I should be doing right now.
First off, congrats on the clerkship! A couple of questions for you:1) What is the one piece (or pieces) of advice you wish you had received before starting school?2) Is there anything you wish you had done differently during 1L (i.e. studied more, studied less, visited more office hours, stressed less)?Thanks!
I'm a 1L at T2.Please tell me about your balance of practice exams vs. outlines.I've not really been outlining much, and it has me worried because everyone under the sun at my school seems to be completely up to date with outlines. About a month into the semester, I started taking practice exams and meeting with several other students to discuss answers, but I've only been taking 1-2 per week (and by "taking" I mean "outlining an answer"). Do you treat practice exams like the real deal (writing out the answer fully, taking the scheduled time)? I was planning on spending most of my Thanksgiving break on creating outlines. Do you think it's more beneficial to just keep doing practice exams? Thanks.
hey, I really want to read something to get at least some information before i start school. even though you think there arenít any with substantial info out there, what book would give me a good preview of the first year?
