I don't get the traveling thing either? What about the expectation at many schools (part. if receiving aid) that you will contribute just about everything in your bank account to law school plus work during the summer? If you're taking out loans for law school, consider how much your travels are really costing, once you factor in interest.

Learn Arabic; work; spend too much time on TLS; eat, drink, and be merry.

I am

1. Getting heavier outerwear. I've lived in florida all my life, and own 2 light jackets and a hoody, this will not suffice anywhere else on the east coast.

2. Buying and reading through (not studying, or taking practice questions) the E&E's

3. enjoying home cooked meals for the last time until I get married . . . only heaven knows when that'll happen

PM me if you want to hang out. I don't know any other TLSers out here in Hawaii.

to answer the OP I am planning on continuing my life much as I have since college. I'll work a bit more and try to save $. I plan on reading a lot for pleasure now and doing some E+Es, LEEWS stuff when it gets closer to summer. I'll spend some time at the beach and hiking before I leave Hawaii.

Since job search has been a complete failure, I'm going to preoccupy myself by counting the cracks in my ceiling and hope that I'm not mentally insane by fall... :shock:

I probably would have started looking for a job and worked for a year or two before law school.

I think I need to add procrastination on financial aid forms to my previous answer. Ugh. ... need to get that stuff done oh, say, NOWish.

I've been saving for the past year or two for an epic travel vacation, you will not have much time to do something great for the next 3 years, or probably 6 if you go into big law. I'm not going to waste my last 3 months off worrying about debt.
