Have yet to read for a class before the class starts.

10 person seminars are such a bad plan for 3L

Taking a class that requires submitting two discussion questions about the readings beforehand might have been an even worse plan

10 person seminar = no curve = easy A? That was my plan.

This seminar is part of a clinic so not even an easy A given how our clinics are graded plus there's no alternative but to participate, which requires at least some amount of preparation

Sometimes I think I'm really going to miss law school and other times I have like 18 unread journal emails and intense self loathing.

That thought occurs to me at least once a day. It's basically a multi-year vacation.

I experienced the hell that is big law and it has given me a new appreciation for how easy and fun law school is.

I also liked eating at high-end restaurants and attending Broadway shows.

I have never been interested in private sector work, and when combined with the work hard play hard culture, biglaw was just a hard pass for me. I'm more of the work moderately play occasionally type.

Also IDGAF about free meals and shows so I was not wooed easily.

Broadway shows are fucking terrible but you do you hikko

I do like fancy restaurants but having to go with your boss or co-workers takes a good deal of the fun out of it

I see the "necessity" of the dining & social events to determine ability to act normal, but they were not the source of my enjoyment. I liked the work. So Hand, I will keep you updated with my enjoyment level month by month. (I've set a calendar reminder starting in August.) Does a 1-10 scale work for you, or do you have a more granular measurement in mind?

Bolded read in Gob Bluth's voice.
Is the recognition report also scaled to 100?

Not a scaled exercise; I am expecting something closer to a narrative detailing the developments. Better yet, make it a memo.

Do you have local rules for your memos? If not, expect crayon (likely red) in ~45 font.

Local rules are set out in a 78-page memo that you will have to locate on your own in the deepest backwaters of the GULC website. Note that the memo in question of course fail to follow the rules it sets out.

This would seem to be a given.
