Sorry bud. You guys just getting started this week, right? Good luck!

I don't start my SA until the very end of May. What to do for four weeks...anybody have suggestions for good reading?

Also, what are people's thoughts on checking grades. I might just not check until (unless) my firm asks for grades/graduation next spring. :lol:

Also, I need to write a paper by next Friday. Not feeling like I give a crap --> making this very difficult.

I'm so incredibly frightened. Living in constant fear of the day I get back my grades.

Heh... okay that reads weird, but the point was that the class is comprised of smarter/more motivated students than your average 1L class. Or at least it feels that way.


90% of the people I know are on a secondary journal. not like in fed courts where not only 3/4 of class is on LR, but its all the ones with fed clerkships lined up. as a side note, ive never seen such a lack of diversity; majority of class all white males, 1 minority in class.

Is your fed. courts class really really small? Doesn't GW place horribly in fed. clerkships? Or are you including magistrates.

TBF they place like 4% into fed clerkships. So 4% of 900 or so GW students = 36.

THIS! Also, what is it with all you people who only had one final? I am taking five classes, three of which have finals. I also interned two days a week this semester and am on a journal. I have been advised that I'm doing it wrong, but I'm not sure what the right way to do it is... :lol:

Good luck to you guys!

Also, if anyone in here has taken or is taking Professional Responsibility, I need help! Please reply or PM me? My classmates are awesome, but I have always gotten the best help from TLS. Our final is in a couple of days. <3 in advance!

Shit, one down, 24 hour take home, likely to start tomorrow. I am so envious of the "finished" thread right now!

Can hardly wait for the fun to start tomorrow..... yeah right.

I have two exams back-to-back (one tomorrow, another on Friday) then another exam on Monday, Wednesday of next week, writing competition after that for two days, and a final paper due the following Monday.

If I survive this I will buy myself a drink.

I pulled 2 separate "2 all-nighters" this past week. I'm amazed I'm still somewhat functioning. Maybe it's just my course selection, but does anyone else think 2L is more difficult than 1L?
