I've paid dues for three organizations (so maybe this makes me fairly active)
According to the numbers, I'm at a T1, but with all ties, the numbers are a little skewed.
My hardest class is Torts, however, I'm blaming this on the professor. I read the cases, look at the supplements, take notes, and go into class fully prepared. Then he throws out some hypo from which I can draw no comparisons to anything I had done the night before. I thought maybe this was a slight against my intelligence; fortunately, I'm not the only one who leaves class confused. My easiest class is Civil Procedure, which I find is probably the most objective course. However, I'm disturbed when other 1Ls express how difficult CivPro is for them.
Criminal law and contracts fall nicely in the middle. I think I understand these classes for the most part.
I feel as if law school is way easier than people have made it out to be. However, I also feel as if it's all a guise. Since we only have one grade in a class and my school uses a B-curve, it may be safe to say the worst I can do is all Bs. Although, the B-curve helps more than it hurts, for those who are hoping to be top 1%, 5%, or 10%, such as myself, it's a major disadvantage.
I've been lax in my studying, haven't started any outlining, and my notes are all over the place. (Ahhh the study habits of ug.) As of yesterday, I've taken to getting everything organized. At this point, I still have no idea what to expect from anything. Well, I do know that law school is very social, and there is always alcohol. If only I could find someway to incorporate those facts into my exams...
