Okay, 0Ls, another nugget of TLS wisdom for you: Schools with graded legal writing classes are significantly tougher than schools without it. The grading structure for legal writing should be a controlling factor in deciding between schools. Good luck!
(Please note: One dissenting poster did note that he went to a T14 with a nongraded legal writing course, and it was a living hell. Most people were maxing out their study time.)
You are a 0L, which is your first indication that you have no clue about first semester legal writing classes. LAWR does not make your life hell unless you let it or overstress about it. There is more than enough time to set aside for it if you are organized. Finals memos in LAWR do NOT at all affect your ability to study for exams. If you set yourself up to hate legal writing, you will hate it -- which is a poor attitude to have since lawyers have to write a lot.
