I really can't answer this for a large group of people. Perhaps some of the FT students can respond for their group. As a PT student, I probably spent less than 1 hour of studying for every hour of class most weeks. RWA required significantly more some weeks, but just assume that a couple of weekends during your 1L year will be sunk with that. I usually take 9-11 hours a semester. My goal is one solid day of studying/reading on the weekend to do the assignments, and then spend the other weekend day trying to get ahead with outlining and other things if there isn't a lot of football on.
I have finished at or above the curve in all but one class and much better in a few others, but I'm not top 10. My plan is to try and do all the readings, pay attention in class, outline when I can, and then (hopefully) try to get some practice tests in before the final. I learn better by listening, so this works for me. One can also completely not pay attention in class and do well (and certainly better than I have done) in law school. I need to pay more attention to exam prep.
