Whether or not that's law school is a personal choice for you. Unless you just want to end up alone or something, in which case, I guess it never matters.

You can just do what most BigLaw attorneys seem to do, and just find and marry the first girl who meets your minimum qualifications, see her three hours a week, and fuck prostitutes.

i dunno. i think 1L has been different than working. for me, it's easier to compartmentalize your work life than it is school, especially during such a high-stakes time. it seems easier for 2Ls. and 3Ls completely check out, so i imagine it's very easy for them.

I might single out 1L. The rest of LS years are as good of a time as any as far as relationships go. I imagine the Biglaw bound people certainly don't have a more flexible schedule to look forward to.

You worked harder than 90% of your class and you have huge anxiety issues. The vast majority of my section had no problem keeping up relationships.

The hard parts were

1)Finals - you are going to be busy for three weeks straight
2)Dragging people to a city they didn't want to be in
3)Meeting new people - you meet new people and some people develop crushes

The people who are "too busy to have a relationship" seem to develop shitshow psuedo relationships.

From beginning of school til mid to late November law school is much easier than am 8-4 job with a commute.

If the relationship works, you'll magically be able to make time for it.

Seriously though, cuddle-studying is incredibly difficult to actually pull off. This may be your greatest pitfall because it's so sneaky.

No gf/bf during 1L. Too much of a time kill. Go out and have fun, but no commitments

The real reason is that 1L girls make horrible decisions. Make sure they make them with you guys.

Also this. Although hooking up with me isn't that bad a decision. I'm good for drinks/breakfast/lunch and I ALWAYS ask how you like your eggs, even if I can only cook scrambled.

How you like your eggs? Fried or fertilized?
