Don't be one of those kids. Please please please don't be one of those kids. College is awesome, but not because of the prestige or academics. Being really competitive at college or high school is like being the guy who takes a board game seriously. Just get good grades - it isn't that hard - and have a lot of fun. Regardless of what you think, you don't know if you want to go to law school yet, and frankly it's not worth thinking about beyond "get good grades" at this point.
To quote the great Jerome Reichman, "Exams do not indicate success in school, success in law school does not indicate success in law, and success in law does not indicate happiness in life. [something about knowing lots of miserable lawyers]."
Have fun, do well, worry about this shit later.
I advise: sports, a reasonable amount/quality of partying, making friends, taking girls out, joining some clubs, and finding a side job.
