You know what you're going to get from the posters on this website.

Many of them will go on to spend hours in the gym everyday, hours at the pub everyday, or hours in the library on facebook.

If this is what you choose to stay in shape and fill your extra hours, have at it. You're at a school where it doesn't matter as much, to be quite honest.

The fun police here won't like it, but only you will know what you can handle.

That's the schedule... I dunno, it looks pretty doable finals wise... Also practices are from 9-11 pm on weekdays


Any more thoughts?


Fuck it. Go ahead. You'll easily have 12-15 hours a week to spare for this.

If you don't like the assumption that hireability=good grades, you are in for a world of hurt come OCI.

But, then, if I was as bad at reading and comprehending as you are, I'd probably tell myself my grades didn't matter also. Please, point out to me where I made "the assumption that you can't be good at both law school and tennis."


1. My grades are fine 2. Landed firm jobs for summer (big firm in fact) 3. it's if "I were as bad" 4. I still don't like the assumption, and somehow I've managed to avoid the" world of hurt"...enjoy your bowling league.


You still can't read for shit.

Edit to add: I also don't believe that you have landed a big firm job. You're either a) lying or b) confused as to what a "big" firm is.

I ran my last season of track as a 1L. Do not regret it at all. Had plenty of time to get done what I needed to get done.
