When I was a 1L, I lived close to school, so I'd wake up 30 minutes before class, drink some coffee, get ready, and basically run to class.

As a 3L? Wake up late, make coffee and a hearty breakfast, spend an hour or 2 surfing the internet and watching sportscenter, go to the gym for a couple of hours, then shower and lunch. By this point it's already 1 pm and I've skipped my morning classes.

There is no need to get up and start acting like a crazy person in regards to prepping for school. Wake up, shower, eat breakfast while watching TV and then go to school. If you have to read in the morning, you are not doing it right.

For the record, the girl is my study group is most likely 1st in the class and she only spends Friday's reading/briefing for the next ensuing week. She uses the other 4-5 days to study in the afternoon after hell has brewed for the day.

Good luck and DO NOT burn yourself out. You will end up going crazy.
thanks for the advice :D i will take it to heart when i start 1L this fall.
