I would get a printer just for convenience... in the long run it isnt expensive enough to justify not having one.
Makes sense. Thanks.
Im a cheap bastard and never had one...but im pretty sure 95% of 1Ls did
If you live within 2 min of the law school (aka my boyfriend) I suppose you can get by... but if you're home and want to print a case or your syllabus or something its so much easier to just get a printer. Plus think about if you want to print something else (think googlemaps directions, coupons, etc). I don't think $100 over 3 years is a valid cost concern... if it is, I hope you don't plan on going out ever
