3L Missing Summer Associate Life

Postby desertlaw » Thu May 23, 2013 9:07 pm

4 days into bar exam prep and all I'd rather do is suck up to associates and partners, do easy assignments, go to free lunches, and drink booze at firm events.

It's going to be a long summer.

Boo hoo, you have no responsibilities and complete control over your schedule to prepare for an exam people regularly study for on nights and weekend to pass if they need to lateral while in practice.

I have no sympathy until the last 2-3 weeks of bar prep.

I'd recommend playing Diablo III 24/7 until July. You'll still pass the bar, and if you're lucky, you might earn $100 selling items.

So sorry I missed you first time bud. How's your weekend looking? I'm going to MD for 2 days come hell or high water, but things are otherwise insane.
