I realize most of the people here are still trying to get into law school, but once you arrive there will be a whole new set of challenges as you try to make it to the top.

One of the biggest mistakes a 1L can make is to rest on his/her academic laurels from before law school. When you arrive, you will find that everyone around you is stupid smart, and that almost everyone is willing to work hard. The way to set yourself apart from the pack is to listen to the advice of upper division students, and listen when you are told about how to rethink study habits for law school. It is a completely different intellectual process.
