I guess it would depend on how you accepted your financial aid, but the most likely answer is you get paid each semester.

I think that's right. According to fin aid: "The Direct Loan is normally payable in two disbursements, one-half of the total in each semester."

Can someone else please confirm?


Correct

Still haven't gotten anything and I signed up for direct deposit. Cause for concern or might it vary by bank and I should wait until the 30th to contact them?

I know the whole "it's different for everyone" thing and time, if your going to chose anything to judge by, is probably a bad indicator but....

Fellow 1Ls how much time of the day have you been devoting to law school?

Honestly, much less than I was expecting. Outside of class time, I would guess 3-4 hours? I always feel like I'm looking for to do but can't find it.

Pretty much this. I've had plenty of time to watch some tv, play some video games, and decompress. Tonight I went to a movie and bought a softball glove, for instance.

I think the stress and time crunch comes from when memos are due and around exam time, and as such is probably a bit overblown.

I've already used it to get out of family functions I want no part of.

Nah, it's probably not that. Some of this shit just isn't going to sink in yet. Also, it can probably depend on what you're reading. I know I spent about 3+ hours reading just Twombly and Iqbal, and I still wasn't sure I understood what the fuck was going on. Part of me is okay with not getting it and hoping the professor expands on the areas that are fuzzy.

Pretty much this. I've been spending a lot of time on the assignments but I mean today I still got to spend time with my SO and have softball practice, so all in all not bad.

listen, reading cases is something that comes naturally to some people, but not to others. it never really clicked for me. it's no big deal if you're like me, you can still do really well. i just always found it easier to understand what was going on after the prof went over it in class, so when outlining things made a lot more sense to me and i could put everything together. sure it might mean you won't smooth talk the more theoretical points of a cold-call, but who cares

Best parts have been softball and a list of quotes by my contract's prof.

My favorite quote so far: We have standards in [] law, like “don’t be a dick”
