1Ls: How Much Do You Remember From Last Semester?

Postby random5483 » Sun Jan 09, 2011 6:08 am

I recall the basics, but some of the finer points seem to have been forgotten. Anyone else feel as if they remember everything they knew prior to the week before finals, but have forgotten everything they crammed right before finals?

Maybe I should have crammed less and done more of the memorization earlier. I did most of my multiple choice/practice essays early (using my outline as needed) and only bothered with some of the memorization at the very end.

meh, who cares? law school isn't about learning the law, its about learning how to think like a lawyer.

I remember everything, and then I made a point to learn more over winter break.

I thought law school was about models and bottles?

Wow, I hope you are kidding. I did some internship applications over break, but I treated break as a nice long vacation from school for the most part.
