yeah, gtm was good bathroom reading material.

lsc was also kind of cool. just dont be the tool who adopts the highlighting system they suggest.

I dont know. People tend to think that there is one set system for doing well in the first year, and if they follow it to a T, they'll do well too. That's not really true. LSC and other books like PLS might give you that false sense of security, but what worked for me was trying to condense the material in a way that made sense to me. Rather than traditional outlines, my outlines looked like brain-maps. When it came to exams, it was just really intuitive to interact with all my materials.

As a MAP Leader, I look forward to greeting the 0Ls in August. And seriously, relax this summer. Pretty much all of the students I know who did well this year didn't touch an E&E before law school started. I know, as overachievers, it will be difficult for you all not to take this advice. It just seems to make sense that by "working ahead" during summer, you'd be gaining a leg-up for 1L. It doesn't quite work that way, though. For instance, the contracts E&E spends something like 30 pages on restitution, and another 30 on third party delegation and assignees. The problem is that our contracts course spent a day on the former and decided to chop the latter from the syllabus.

The E&Es are definitely helpful, but in the sense that they are supplements. By definition, they supplement what you learn through the traditional casebook method. Just relax this summer, because I suspect that you can profit more from that than by doing 0L prep, even in the game of law school grades.



It's not difficult to take your advice, trust me :mrgreen:

I'm gonna spend the summer working out, sleeping, and traveling. Sweet.

I'm moving to Ann Arbor on May 23rd. Would any other summer starters like to get drinks or dinner in the couple of days we have before orientation starts? I don't know anyone there and I'm living alone :-(

I'm a fall starter, but if this happens, let me know! I'll actually be in Ann Arbor at some point that weekend looking at apartments, so I'd love to meet up with some others who will be in town =)

I arrive on the 23rd. I'm thinking maybe I could host a TLS/summer starter get together, maybe Sunday or Memorial Day? It would be nice to get acquainted early.

Been in Ann Arbor for a week already. Love it. Realizing what I missed out on for undergrad sucks tho. Knowing I could've had this.
