I'm pretty sure you said you would send it to anyone that's interested. Let me know if I'm mistaken. Thanks man and thanks for all the other info you and others have posted on here. It's definitely been helpful!
Sorry, PM it again.
I'm reluctant to send the callback sheet to 0Ls because it will skew your perspective on law school. Take practice exams, brief all of the cases, take concise class notes, understand the issues and their policy implications, go out, make friends, and then worry about the curve.
If you want to do something law-related, I have a few suggestions:
1. Take a nap.
2. Read this website.http://www.lawnerds.com/guide/exam.html
It explains the basics well. It'll show you how class interacts with your exams, the single determinator of your final grade. It'll also explain the concept of a legal issue, and how law school consistently fixates on them.
3. Listen to Oyez oral arguments. A few of my favorites: Tahoe-Sierra
(featuring a younger Justice Roberts); DC v. Heller
(featuring Alan Gura); Missouri v. Nixon
(featuring David Strauss).
4. Memorize the name of every appellate judge in the country, reading their latest slip opinions in an attempt to impress your less-informed friends and professors. Casually ask them whether they've read the recent Ed Carnes's 11th Circuit opinion, or Easterbrook's latest 7th circuit smackdown. Impress them even more by mentioning senior status judges and judicial legends like Bazelon (DC Circuit).
