3L Life

Postby desertlaw » Mon Jul 30, 2012 1:04 am

Any suggestions on a hobby for 3L life or does anyone have any cool 3L plans/vacations/ideas lined up? Got a biglaw offer and I'm not too concerned about attending classes...

American Idol is really hard for me to watch because I have perfect pitch.

at my school in Spring semester we had a three week period where we were only in classes for 4 days. I just skipped those 4 days and rocked a three-week vacation. lots of 3Ls did this.

i also started playing a lot of sports again and getting into good shape.

probably went to 15-20% of my classes. 3L is awesome.

It's a great time to develop a gym habit. It's also a great time to look up cheap travel/adventure plans.

You've got the right idea.

True. My bad. Looks like it will just be lots of drinking.

I am pretty much in the same boat, just finished 1L and my SA. With friends focusing on OCI, things can be dull, even in NYC. Are you in a part of the country with reasonably priced rental beach houses nearby?

With offer in hand, would you still feel the same way about classes if you were heading into 2L?

Work out, continue resume building activities (yes it still can help), attend networking events (preferably ones that provide alcohol) and practice your golf game.
