Best Advice for Law School
1. Remember to maintain some life outside of law school. The work can pile up really quickly, and it will demand a lot of your time, but make sure you take some time for yourself. Explore DC, go for a run, try a new recipe, go out with your friends, do SOMETHING to keep you grounded—you’ll be happier here and more productive in the long run. 2. Don’t let your classmates psych you out. You’ll have enough on your plate without worrying about what everyone else is doing. Instead of stressing out about how many hours your friends have been in the library, focus on learning the material in your own way and develop study habits that work for you.
