8 days until misery begins here. I hear "concur, but for different reasons" is the way to go.

Planning to deal with this the same way I dealt with moot court - wait until the last day and do it all at once.


I know this is a joke but for even for serial procrastinators like me, you need to start asap. Consider yourselves warned, and think of me fondly when you first look at the materials halfway through the week and go "damn should've listened to pnj."


Wish write on was an appellate memo. Lawls nope not us

Protip citation rules are slightly different for law journals than court filings. You've been warned x2

Write-on is a sham.

LOL this was not a joke. Maybe 2 days instead of one.


Think of pnj fondling you when you first look at the materials halfway through the week instead, you'll finish very quickly

idk if ironic is the word, but there's something funny about the fact that I'm putting in these 10 hour days pretty much immediately following finishing 1L to get a position I will very likely not enjoy

also LOL at my knowledge of grammar, so much for that preftigious education

I get to wait till grades come out before I have to worry about grade-on. So like a couple weeks maybe?

For grade-on, SMU requires that you do the write-on and put forth a good-faith effort (on all three parts -- write-on, bluebooking, editing). The catch is that you don't know your grades at the time of the write-on.

Be careful with that free time, it can be addictive. I had two weeks off coming out of boot camp in '92. It was so nice, that it was tough to drag myself back to go to combat school. Not wanting to face that hardship of time of coming to a close, i have opted not to take any more of that free time. (Although I did take about 8 days for a destination wedding, and 7 days when my daughter was born).

Either listen to PnJ's advice, or have fun editing the Journal of Southwestern Australian Horse Law. You'll be thinking of him fondly.

Hang in there.

If it makes you feel better, I have plenty of other obnoxious tasks to deal with.

eh I kinda get the feeling we're in for something not all that different in practice, but I do think getting paid will make it sit better

getting paid is not everything, but it can ease the pain quite a bit.
