Over my break I'm going to try to:

1. memorize my outlines
2. write out a few hypos
3. finish up a memo that is due right after break is over
4. try to push a week ahead so I won't have to stress about the readings once late Nov. hits
5. watch some football and drink when I have time....

Step 1: Go to Wal-Mart/Target/Sports Authority.

Step 2: Pick up a 10-25lb free weight.

Step 3: Sit down on a chair in your house.

Step 4: Raise weight over your head.

Step 5: Lower weight to your waist.

Step 6: Repeat Steps four and five eight hours a day for all 9 days.

Step 7: Admire your ripped new gunning arm!

If you really want to make it productive, you can shout "Oh, Oh, Professor!" while doing it.

are they actually studying? or are they making plans for the evening, while pretending to study ( and psyche out other classmates)?

That's surprising. I was starting to feel like I was in the minority of LS students just by staying in the same city as my law school during fall recess.

People who study hardcore in the library during fall break are doomed for bottom 10 percent. Ignore them. They are either so far behind they wont catch up or they are uber gunners who will burn out.

The people who take that wild road trip to a college foot ball game, the people that spend some time away from the law with non law school friends and family, the people that go on 3 day Modern Warfare binge, the people that do shrooms in the woods, the people that comeback with a clear and freshed mind and ready to pwn everyone, these are the people that you need to watch out for.

if you have to study hard during fall break, then you probably dropped the ball somewhere before break.

I spend part of fall and spring breaks outlining, but it's by no means necessary.

Doomed for bottom 10%? It surprises me that studying a lot leads to being doomed. I personally have been studying 7-10 hours a day for most of break but have had ample time to get drunk/go out/play video games/movies. I call it being efficient and I by no means feel burnt out, in fact I feel better now than I have all year. I mean if you sleep 8 hours a night that leaves you 18 hours a day to study/have a blast. After putting in a long day at the library I still have half my day left to enjoy brah. If I end up bottom 10% I'll start a thread and let you know, though.

18+8 = 26...

there are only 24 hours in a day, no matter how you cut it... brah

Anyway, I'll probably stay in the city of my school but spend at least 4 days watching Dexter and Arrested Development until my eyes fall out of my head. Then once my brain reboots I'll get my outlines started.
