Dawg I somehow worked up the motivation to get 3/4 outlines up to date. Sometimes I surprise me.

My day consisted of a nice Easter brunch at a buddy's where I stuffed my face and got a good buzz going, then I went and walked 18 holes of golf. Now I'm just sorta screwing around on the interbutts. So much to do, so little motivation.

I have to teach myself Con Law II sometime in the next 3 weeks, while writing two papers and studying for two other exams besides Con Law.

I would not be motivated either.

Then again, do you have to make a certain GPA to keep your scholarship?


yes. top 40%...im top 35 right now, but am trying to get into top 30ish zone so as to not foreclose nyu tax llm future...
chances of dropping below top 40 this semester= uncomfortably high.

But at least in terms of scholarship you have some leeway.

Why do you think the chances are uncomfortably high?


i missed like 8 classes in corps and like 6 in crim pro...i have so much reading to make up...have never been this behind before.

Some people can do well without going to class. But this isn't me, and I'm guessing not you either. Best of luck.

Mustered just enough motivation to post in this thread. That's progress, right?

Haven't done much work this semester. Became Job secure a few weeks ago. Absolutely no motivation. It's hard to even go to class. Thank god all my exams are open book or take home.

Last semester, I was pretty low on the motivation until the last few weeks, but it kicked it like it usually does. But it still hasn't this semester. I have two papers to write (only about halfway on each) and I haven't even started outlining, and we start finals period in two weeks. All I want to do is hang out, play golf, drink beers, and be done with the semester and go work.

Greetings procrastinators. I get my first take home exam tomorrow, haven't outlined a thing (for that or my other three classes). Three and a half weeks of pure hell ahead.

At least I went to class and kept up with reading. Otherwise I was be 10x worse off.

Okay, so tomorrow really is the day I start to care. I HAVE to make progress on this paper if I'm going to have time to outline and all that good stuff.

Too bad I've been saying this since like last Tuesday.
