These guys are in the 99.9th percentile for work done in law school. It's great that it worked for them, but the vast majority of students just don't have what it takes to put in this kind of effort. The good thing for those of us that fall into that majority is that this effort is by no means required to make yourself stand out. I probably did a quarter of the work that xeoh did and I'm sitting in the top 5% right now. I'm not posting this to dissuade anyone from going all out (if you can do it, you should), I just don't want 0L's reading this and being freaked out by their competition.
I should also note that TTT-LS, from what I've gathered from his posts, was top 1% at NU and didn't study nearly the amounts that xeoh did. (TTT, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.)
