+1
Top 5% at a T1, also with one B. Enjoyed the hell out of the year. Just proves you don't have to kill yourself for 1L success. Thanks Lazy.

This is funny, top 5%, T14, one B+. Everyone has that one professor haha.

This is the furthest thing from a lazy guide. It's a great guide, but it should be called the efficiency guide. Not doing work on the weekends and squeezing it in during the week before, between, and after your classes, does not make you lazy. I do, however, agree with this method. No reason to burn time between classes doing something other than assigned readings.

During my 1L year, I did an hour or two of reading on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Squeezed some readings in during my down time on Mondays and Tuesdays, and by the time Wednesday came around, I was already done with all my work for the week.

I don't think you read it. Here is from the OP:
For the record: “Lazy Person’s Guide” does not mean “no work.” You will still have to put in some effort; you will still have to do things like attend class, take notes, and make outlines. Without doing these things you will be in for a world of hurt unless you’re some kind of law school savant. This guide attempts, however, to show you how to do those things without having to give up your evenings and weekends to the oh-so-seductive law school library. The Lazy Guide’s premise is that you can succeed in law school without working at night or on weekends*.

Just wanna say this guide is terrible. I just got grades back at my T14 and I'm only sitting at around top 15%, not 10%! What a ripoff! Seriously though, I followed this guide pretty much exactly except I also got some E&E's and wound up surprising myself. Thanks, Lazy!
