First of all, congratulations to everyone who has been admitted to UVA Law. To everyone who is still waiting, hope you get some good news soon.
For anyone who is contemplating prepping before law school and wants to buy E&Es, I have some in pristine/new conditions if you'd like to buy them from me @ Admitted Student Day. I can also throw in some outlines to sweeten the deal.
There's a lot of talk on TLS about warning people not to prep beforehand, but it's ultimately a personal decision. Do whatever you feel most comfortable with. I know several people who prepped before school by reading E&Es cover to cover and dominated their first semester. It is still possible to do well without prepping before school, of course, depending on how hard you work during the semester. It's ultimately about what studying strategy best fits your personality.
UVA is a great law school, and I hope that most of you will choose it as the base for your legal education.
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about those books or any other matter.
P.S. I am a 1L at UVA if that wasn't clear from the above.
