Best thing about law school?

Postby Extension_Cord » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:54 pm

1. The free food, yup, it has to be the free food.

I had free cuban food, pizza X2, and Quiznos this week.

It's only free food if you're on a full scholarship ;)

I've gained 7lbs since starting law school because there's free pizza all the time or at least receptions with cookies and lemonade every day. Law school's dangerous.

I gained a few pounds from dranking during orientation week, but since classes started, I've been dropping weight at an alarming weight. I tend to stress-starve...

I wish I were a stress-starver. But maybe I can just spend all my $ on other things and by the end of the semester I won't be able to afford food. Full proof plan.

If either stress-eating or stress-starving is already a problem in mid-September then you're doing something wrong.

1) Not having to work a job during 1L because the school won't allow it anyways

2) Getting laid with even more frequency

3) People assume you're even smarter than you are
