OP.

Yes i have a job lined up, but a midsized firm that offer isnt given away, must be earned (close to market salary though). Its easy to say drown yourself in work to forget about the pain, but its so hard to concentrate and focus. Studying is a lonely process in the first place.

In any event, at least this thread made me laugh.

Shoeshine is a severely underrated poster.

OP, feel bad for you. Call me if you need to talk.

This happened to me 1L year.

I coped by surrounding myself constantly with my friends and forcing myself to study as much as possible and also asked my friends to encourage me to study. It turned out a-okay.

You'll be fine. Good luck to you.

Get real mad at him. Anger is the best motivator I know.

I sympathize w/ the OP. All this advice bout moving on and studying is correct, but easier said than done.

I got dumped just before finals my junior year,...lost 15 pounds and grades took a nosedive. Silver lining was that she tried to get back w/ me a year later and I shot her down beautifully. Best of luck OP.

Happened to me during 1L.

Give yourself one last night to mope and mourn whatever. Listen to sad music, eat ice cream, drink wine, cry, etc. But only tonight.

Tomorrow get it the fuck together. The semester is almost over, you need to man up and power through it.

You sort of have no choice but to bury yourself in the work, and use it as a distraction. All the more reason to dedicate every second to it, since any break you take will only allow your mind to revert to negative thoughts. So just jump in headfirst to your work, use it as a numbing agent, use your anger as motivation, and then let it all out when finals end.

I'm sorry, but do you masterbate? Try to masterbate. Really takes the mind off the opposite sex for a good 30 minutes or so.

I thought that only worked for men and the cooling-off wore off in 3 minutes.

Keep your head up and make sure to take care of yourself. I know it may sound difficult, but force yourself to eat well and get yourself to the gym everyday.

If you have close friends you can lean on now is the time, but do so sparringly. Don't let this consume you! There will be tough moments ahead in life, and you can assume that as an attorney they will come and inopportune moments (trust me, I work as a litigation paralegal and I have seen some attorneys lose their parents right before major trials).

This too shall pass, and you shall overcome.

Congratulations on the job offer!

Yes but if you turn the "she" into "he" this is still awesome advice.

Serious advice that might be bad advice but because everyone in here suddenly became a douchebag:

Start some serious drama in another aspect of your life. Like...post on your law school section facebook page that X should stop gunning because it is fucking annoying. Or get a dramatic new hair cut.

I think this could put a 20 day bandage on your emotions. Instead of talking to like 50 people about how you feel, suddenly you get all this attention that isnt the same as rebounding off the next guy and feeling worse the next day

lol i know this sounds like such a flame but i got dumped in high schoolonce and coudln't get over it and was miserable for like a full year. i can't imagine getting dumped/cheated on 3 weeks before finals.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. So now the OP is supposed to make everyone in her section hate her and that will get her mind off the break up? Yeah, not buying that.

OP, sorry to hear about your situation. Hang in there and try to focus on work like the other posters said. Just keep it together for a few more weeks and then you can sort things out emotionally after finals. I know it's tough but your future self will thank your present self if you can keep from self-destructing.

because she'd be posting on anonymously on a message board for that great advice. it may sounds dumb but i think it works. no one will hate you but the gunner. or you could just get the drastic hair cut. you need attention right now unrelated to break up. and to study.

People need to study more than 1 day for 2L finals? Why not just memorize a friend's old outline and enjoy your B+?
