If you try teaching yourself something, you'll inevitably be taught a different perspective by a professor and it'll just fuck you up later. Learn a fun hobby for the "fun fact" orientation bullshit?
I type 55-60 WMP. Is this sufficient or should I invest in some sort of typing program? This is something I have actually been sort of worried about...
Definitely not worth worrying about, I think that's about where I am, but it certainly couldn't hurt to be able to go faster. But most exams have word limits, so it's not a huge deal, and honestly just taking notes on your computer throughout the quarter will probably help you improve your typing abilities.
Re 0L prep, if you have never studied economics might be helpful to learn a tiny bit about it. As someone who had never heard the word incentive in my life I found it helpful to watch Levmore's short (45 min if inrember correctly) YouTube video to finally have some idea of what the profs were getting at. I'm not saying you should do this, it's not really going to help you do better, but if you want something to do and when someone says "economics" you have no idea what they're talking about, it won't hurt.
