This only works if you are naturally good at law school exams. Like 80% of the class isn't.

If you do really well on exams, you risk getting biglaw, which will really screw you up.

So we shouldn't slack off and study even though it might not matter if we're not naturally good at law school exams? What are you getting at?

Even if you suck, the difference between slacker and over studier is the different between worst in the class and bottom third.

Do you think it would've helped him all that much to study 18 hours a day Aug-Test?


Probably not, no. But if he had studied 12 hours a day it could have been worse. He didn't get any B- and that is probably because all teh studing.

I'd guestimate study amount can push you like +/- 25%iles.
