1Ls - How much are you studying per a day/week?

Post by swimmer11 » Thu Sep 13, 2012 9:46 am

Just out of curiosity, how much do you tend to study each day or week? I try and spend 1.5-2 hours for each class each night and then in the mornings work on legal writing.

About 2-3 hours a day, sometimes less.

Anywhere from 2 hours to 5 hours, depending on my schedule.

This is too much. That is at least 7-8 hours of studying per day? Calm down.

This. Crammed a little the first two weeks to get ahead just in case something comes up. Other than that, I'll usually read a little bit between classes, read for 1-2 hours total before going home, and maybe an hour or so in the evening.

If you are sleeping/socializing more then 6 hours a day enjoy chasing ambulances.



But seriously, who keeps track of this? I study until I am done.

Reading for class ≠ studying. You shouldn't be spending that much time studying for class a mere month in. You don't even know what you're "studying" yet.

FWIW, I meant reading. I haven't "studied" yet... because it's September.

2-5 hours on mon-thurs and maybe 1-3 hours on both Friday and Saturday and then 3-5 hours on Sunday.

This thread is utterly pointless. A mix of people trying to studybrag, self-validate against other 1Ls, or being genuinely curious about a subject that has no objective merit towards their final exam grade.
