0L's and lots of beer!

Postby quetzalcoatl » Mon Mar 22, 2010 8:20 pm

Just wondering how much TLS drinks. Daily, weekly, monthly? I'm not the binge drinking type, but I probably have a beer or two most days (Its not alcoholsim unitll you graduate, right?) Anybody start drinking way more or way less after starting law school?

Im always really impressed by people that can kick the habit but still drink in moderation. Its a very hard thing to do without letting it get out of control, props Borhas.

4 to 8 drinks (sometimes more) one to three times a week. Got a DUI last fall which was a huge bummer. I thought it would hurt my law school chances which it didn't. Still a lot of cash to fork over to the state though.

more often, but much less alcohol per drinking session. in law school the nightcap suddenly feels acceptable.

In UG nightcaps didn't feel acceptable?

What did you study at BYU?

Varies hugely on the week, from 5-30 ignoring outliers, but I probably drink about 15 in a week.

Nope, pretty sure I got it. Unless you are talking about an actual hat...then we're on totally different pages.

I am also confused. Maybe because a nightcap is often scotch and many don't consume scotch until older/lawschool?

I am thirdly confused. Although I drank scotch in UG, 6-7 nights a week beginning junior year. Less so now.

Edit: I think I get it. Yeah...in hindsight the BYU joke was a little non-sequitur and could lead to confusion over whether you got his original jist.
