Hello New 2Ls

Postby Dale » Fri May 04, 2012 11:16 pm

Congrats to all the new 2Ls.

Seems like I just walked into law school, blinked once and now I am a 2L.

Somewhere in the middle of that blink (where my 1L year is now just a blur) my wonderful 4.0 UG GPA got a big time reality check. I have come to loath the word “curve.” Up next, no clue on how I will view the new 1Ls. . .

So new 2Ls, do you have something to share as you head into part 2 of the 3 part LS adventure?

I wasted my 1L experience. This last year was completely uneventful for me and I will regret that for the rest of my life.

Other than that, pretty good year, though.

I need to get my grades before I make an official statement.

+1. Perhaps adventure was not the best descriptive word, given that it could convey a modicum of fun.

Re-read through the take home exam I turned in yesterday. We had a crazy word limit and I wasted it by repeating an issue twice. Ugh....worst part is I left out an issue or two purposely because there was no room. I know this is going to bad. C here I come. :(

If the exams were tough, and you nailed them, you are in great shape. However, if they were hard for you and easy for everyone else. . .lets not go there.

Unfortunately. it doesn’t get better when the exams are easy. If easy for you then they are probably easy for others, then your life is in crushing hands of the absurd curve. :(

So true. 2L year may be miserable (especially OCI) if my grades from this semester are shit. And I will not look favorably on this year if they are so yea, I will reserve judgment for another 3 weeks or so.

Since exams & classes are finally over I can move about without having to crack a book. 1L is over, all I have to do now is wait to see who is in better shape, the porcupine or me.

I need to see my grades before I feel comfortable assuming that I am, indeed, a 2L. Even afterward, I will probably call the registrar to be sure.

That gif is really cute!

Poor porcupine :(


Isn't it a hedgehog? My hedgies look just like that. I've never heard of one getting trapped on a rock in the middle of treacherous rapids, though.

All new 2L's, be prepared to enjoy the Employment Law forum and all the craziness that is 2L OCI bidding, screening interviews, and callbacks. Models and bottles!
