How many groups is too many?

Postby Andrew the Wolverine » Wed Jan 20, 2010 9:15 pm

I have always regretted not being involved in more groups in college, so I am hoping to join a few in law school later this year. How many groups (e.g. law review, student bar, federalist society) would be too many and would hinder my ability to study as much as I need to? Do these types of organizations or journals in law school take up a considerable amount of time per member per week?

I like how you thought he didn't get the point of your post.

I was under the impression that outside of YLS, a law student doesn't sleep. There are just small periods of downtime where productivity is ridiculously reduced.

Maybe like on The Sims, where you can keep the characters awake forever with just a few cups of espresso per day.

This question is valid. Could someone give their opinion on it? I'm also curious as to what law students recommend regarding how many extracurrics is reasonable.
