There will be a lot of people who do seem
to do this. Most won't actually though, and the ones that do are generally below median, in my experience. A lot of people will tell you they studied when they actually played video games or watched a movie or just sat and drank. Others will be in the library looking studious while checking facebook and reading the news. The ones actually studying until midnight every night are generally doing so because they don't know how or what to study. They'll be memorizing the facts of a case instead of the BLL, or reading up on a tort not covered in class, or studying the utilitarian theory of criminal punishment in profound depth, despite the fact that it will only be mentioned once on an exam in a general way. They will make themselves crazy because they can't understand where their grades come from or why... and so they study HARDER. Poor things.
