Anyone want a 2018 "how to do well at law school" guide ?

Postby LBJ's Hair » Mon Jun 25, 2018 9:12 pm

I wasn't a big fan of the ones stickied, for various reasons, so if there's any interest I figured I'd put one together. But if not, this would just be me jerking myself off on TLS, which we don't need any more of.

Credentials, to the extent that it matters: law review, top 3-5% at CCN.

I might contribute as well to a post like this. I’m at a lower T-14 and went from slightly above median after first semester to top ~15% overall

I'm at Texas. 3.1 my first semester and 3.9 my second semester. Happy to contribute about how to come back from a truly terrible first semester!

I assume all LR calls went out yesterday?

edit: just realized you said CCN- just assumed Kent cause “3-5%”

can neither confirm nor deny, but based on CLS EIP thread, looks like they did

Edit: And cool! Sounds like it's worth making a guide

I would be interested to hear your story. I’m sure you went about things differently the second go-around.

Speaking of giving away a how-to-do-well guide, I am giving away copies of my kindle book "Breaking Down the Curve: Acing Law School Exams" on Amazon. You can either google it or head over there, but it is currently free to order for kindle through Monday, July 16.

I wrote it a few years ago, but I stand by what's in it. Credentials are D.C. Circuit clerkship, so-called "Unicorn Job" in Justice Department, now top-tier appellate group in DC.
