First day, made it through about the first 80 and outlined a roadmap of where to go/what support to look for. Can't help but think they have to be trying to trick us into doing extra work, or are they really looking for broad coverage?

FUCK MY LIFE, I don't actually want this law review crap beyond how fancy employers think it is. -_-

Dude, we can't give you advice on what to do on your write-on while you're doing it.


Oops, mistakenly thought that general advice is ok. Ignore this.

Hopefully you'll Beautiful Mind it and all of the assorted readings will eventually fit together in your brain.


Bro! So funny you said that. I had a legal epiphany, FINALLY able to connect an idea spanning across the broad material. I was so excited...

...then I remembered I had to fucking Bluebook.

In theory that sounds doable. In practice I may be failing.

so during the second 5 days of the write on i started work at a firm so yesterday and today i worked 8 hours then tried to stay up to 2 working on the comp and get up by 6 to go to work. Finally, a partner today said i can work on it tomorrow and thursday at work and push off my assignments for the week. Needless to say I am so fucking pumped.

People seemed less frantic about it after it was over compared to normal finals.

Hopefully this means that I crushed them all. The removal of the editing portion from our competition is going to mess with me though. I am superb at editing.

Dude it's the worst. But don't give up, it's super important and you'll be gals you put in the work a week from now.

I definitely have some regrets wrt my efficiency, I should have pushed myself harder.

Come on y'all, we got this. The pain is real, but so is our greatness. We will shine like freedom unicorns when this is all done.


Also, just wondering, is it possible to just do a journal in your third year? Or do you HAVE to start on a journal in the second year?

Depends on the school and the journal. (At mine, the secondaries let you write-on as a 2L-going-into-3L, but LR didn't.)
