I've Been Admitted to Law School. The Question is...Can I Survive?


Tuesday, November 07, 2006


All those 2Ls who promised me I'd have so much more free time than I did my 1L year?? Liars! Every last one of them!

Interviews, Callbacks, Catching up on missed classes, seminars, offer dinners, "friendly" emails from alums at law firms where you interviewed, dodging recruitment coordinators, how's a person to handle it all?!

Ahhh, refreshed! I'm still on vacation and it's a beautiful thing, marred only by the knowledge that grades will be available in less than a week. *shudder* Of course I'd take that over having finals after Christmas break a la Josh and Trevor.

School begins in a week and a half, and maybe, just maybe I should begin my 1L summer job search. After taking a year off applying for stuff like school, here I am, back to square one where the likelihood of infinite rejection letters loom menacingly in the very near future. I do, however, have a back-up plan, if no job shows itself I'll bundle myself off to summer school in some distant land and pretend to be productive while earning some credits and/or filling possible gaps in my resume.

What're all my fellow 1Ls up to for the summer I wonder...?

Happy Holidays Everybody. I had my last final today and I'm not sticking around a second longer than I have to. See you all next year.

Torts? what Torts? I'm done with Torts...possibly for life.

Yeah baby.

One exam down...and while I'm certainly a tad (read: a LOT) sleep-deprived I feel safe saying it wasn't nearly as painful as I expected -- of course, that's not to say it was good but still. I'm alive...3 more to go before I can get the hell out of here for a month.

Oh, one of the most important things I learned about keeping your sanity before and after the exam is to ensure you have either earplugs or music pumping to drown out all the nervous chatter which manifests itself in pure obnoxiousness.

OK...off to the library...more studying to do.

G'Luck on your exams everybody!

Ouch, that hurts


I've had the most unbelievably riduculous few weeks.

This has to be what people mean when they say don't go to law school. Everything had to be done and it took twice as long.

And now...finals...

The Worst Week Ever

Every Sunday, without fail for the past few weeks I've said to my suitemate, this is going to be the worst week ever. Every Sunday she agrees. I'd like to take it all back, because I know now without fail that this week...will be the worst week EVER.

I've got make-ups for not one, not two, but t-h-r-e-e classes this week. And they're all in the morning, for instance, on Thursday I have a Con Law class at 8:15, 8:15AM people. That's just plain cruel. and it's not the only Con Law class for the day. On Friday I've got 2 Civ Pros plus a Torts make-up, plus my regular classes, oh yeah my memo's due on Friday too.

Uh huh..this week...is definitely the worst week ever, no question about it.

Never really thought I'd say this but...man I'm glad I'm not going to Harvard right now...Over at Josh's place it's...snowing. Already! Just the thought of snow right now makes me scared.

The Wordpress Phenomenon

OK so a while ago I signed up for an invite to a wordpress blog and now I've got it. I'm not that hip in blog speak, but...should I switch over? What does this whole wordpress thing mean, I admit it I just signed up b/c everybody in the blogosphere seemed to be in love with it, but now I apparently need to decide if I want a wordpress blog within a week or my invite goes to waste...so...any wordpressers out there? What's the big deal? Is it better than blogger? Will I be happier? Will it boost me over the curve and onto a journal here at Narkoleptik U? Whatd'ya think?


So we had our practice exams today, which is why I've been absent for the past few days (I'm really going to have to manage my time better so I can post regularly, other people seem to be able to do it - of course maybe they're just smarter, more organised than I am). I figured it'd be best to actual know something to get the most out of the exam even though it wasn't graded. I have to say, it was as bad as it could be. I had Torts, thank God. By the way, anybody who has a good grasp of proximate causation, feel free to break it down to me...in 50 words or less. Supposedly, it's really only going to click after we read Palsgraf but for now...I'm scared.

Does everybody use Secure Exam? Mine totally required two reboots of my computer before it got going today, I was convinced I'd have had to write it in a blue book, I haven't written anything longer than my signature in years...it wouldn't have been pretty. A couple other people I know of had their computers freeze during the exam...which our procter was more than happy to tell us didn't mean we'd get extra time, it meant we'd stop typing get a blue book and keep writing right where we left off. Good times.

It's mid-October and already we're installing exam software. Are these people going out of their way to scare me?

In that vein however, I've tested my laptop for compatibility with SecureExam, I've been vouched for so theoretically I'm good to go. Of course the instructions said after installing SecureExam I shouldn't install or install any software...however I've been having some browser issues that sparked a flurry of installing and uninstalling but still I'm hoping for the best. Also I mess around on my computer a lot, can I really go two months w/o installing any programmes? Can anyone?
