Beaver also refers to an animal that is huntable. Trapping is usually better though.

It's harder than a poli sci degree, but so is tying a shoe.

The first couple weeks it'll take you a bit longer to read than you should. You'll brief despite everyone saying you shouldn't, and after three weeks you won't anymore. But my professors were pretty easy on us the first month.

You'll have 150-300 pages of reading a week. It's really not super dense. This should really take no more than 20 hours. It probably should only take 8-10.

You'll have probably 15 hours of class time.

And every thirdish week you'll have a memo/brief due. Most people I know spend two days straight on them. These suck ass.

If you are fairly good with time management it's a 40/hour a week job, with a heavy week every three weeks.

But then finals happen. They suck. You pretty much work hard for a week then frantically for three.

Anyone who can't have a social life is doing it wrong. A lot of people make it to every social event and do very well.


This is good to know.
When people say they study 8-10 hours a day, do they include the time spent in class?
I can see myself studying up to 6-7 hours a day, but 8 seems like it's approaching excessive.


The extra hour just too much?


Oh yeah, that added 60 minutes is just enough to push one over the edge of sanity.

Don't hook up with other law students.


That is quite possibly the most absurd suggestion I've ever heard.

Law students are awful. Why would anyone ever sleep with one.

Almost no ugly girls, but not a lot of super hot ones. The rising 3Ls had a ton of hotties though.

TCR is the physical therapy students at the Med School. Or the nurses at the Hospital.

What, you can't spend the tiny amount of extra effort to meet people outside the law school instead?

Trust me. You'll be better off if you do.

Nah, man. I think it goes for the whole school. People talk across sections.

This seems really reasonable. TBH sounds just like Engineering undergrad.

So I can't play Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3 and Guitar Hero for hours next year? *puts up his Arnold Palmer Arizona in the air* here's to hopefully winning the lottery.

I'm planning on scheduling at least an hour a week to get on PSN and play something with my buddies I grew up with. That and Facebook are pretty much the only contact we have anymore living so far apart, going to grad. school/working, and starting families. That will be essential to my sanity I think.
