Sadly, maybe this? No pure grade on here either.

You'll forget it by the time the write on comes. Just tab the damn thing and know where shit generally is.

This. Unless of course, you've never actually gone through and read the thing, in which case: what the HELL is wrong with you?

This isn't true, technically. As long as you put a "good faith" effort into it (read: finish it), half of the law review is just the top 16 grades without respect to scores on write-on. Only problem is not being ranked :)

Haha fair enough. If the only thing we know is top 20%, if you were in that group, that would put you in a group of 40 kids. So there's only a 40% chance out of that group that you will have to put in merely a good faith effort. Guess I'd better get back to studying. Need to get teh jerrrbsss.

Was originally going to work, but my break is only 2.5 weeks ( :( ), so I'll probably just sleep and hang out with friends and spend money I don't have.

Reading for fun, visiting family, applying for (and hopefully interviewing for) jobs, doing some writing, drinking, and watching the Steelers.

In that order.

As for me, my old college friends called me and wanted me to get onto that new World of Warcraft expansion, so I assume most of my time will be filled up with that.

I sacrificed my Thanksgiving break to exams so I'm damn well not going to do the same for Christmas break. Going skiing in Aspen and playing golf the rest of the time (from Fl). Why yes I am white; how did you guess?

Re write on: our LR process is part write on too, so I guess I have to spend some quality time with my bluebook as well.

hitting the slopes, do absolutely nothing for one day, apply for jobs, and complete a pro bono project I signed up for

Been fighting the urge all year. I made some decent bank playing that game.

May study for the GMAT and take it to apply to a dual degree program for next year, I dunno though still up in the air. Otherwise, get schmammered w/ friends, read for fun and not live by any schedule.

See the black swan, watch mindless tv, read something that has nothing to do with law, weep openly, hang out with my dog for the first time in a month

Hah. Aside from leisure reading and hanging out with old friends, it's also SC2, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassin's Creed (never got past the movie intro), maybe some final fantasy RPG I'll pirate for PC, and sleep. A lot.


Oh, and forget MMOs. Games in this genre take away whatever life you have.

AC1 and AC2 was fun. ACB will be played along with my hookers and blow.
