Few things in law school are more annoying than when people come to class sick. It's like saying "I'll probably get everyone around me sick, but fuck you guys, I'm more important than you, and I won't let my illness or your health force me to miss any class."

Just sounds like good strategy to me; take everyone down with you.

There's a lot of weakness in this thread. Dood included.

I made it through my entire 1L year without getting sick once (usually good, but not great immune system). One day after my last spring final, I came down with strep throat.

I was sick for about six consecutive weeks of 1L. My advice is:

multi-vitamin
sleep
gym so you can work off some of stress
neti-pot if you're prone to sinus infections

I'm doing a lot better this year.

Most of my class is sick right now. It's lollerskates.

+1 for sleep and gym.

Although I like the idea of "strategic" infections around thanksgiving time... :P

No joke. It's much better than OJ at clearing mucus in your throat. Also, the warmness keeps your throat warm, therefore, hydrated. This is home medicine of course.

dood wrote:sleep and exercise are credited, as others mentioned

1) eat at least 1g of protein per lb of body weight per day, fucking muscle milk is so credited
2) take supplements, like all of them, especially multivitamin, fish oil, and creatine
3) get a flu vaccine
4) when ur friends start getting sick, dose ur self with airborne until ur pee is florescent
5) stop sleeping with sluts and making out with randos at bars on november 1st

ive followed this plan since '02 and havent been sick since, HTH



Creatine supplements are downright sketchy, that amount of protein is way overkill for most people, and muscle milk tastes like chalky butthole. Gold standard 100% whey ftw.
