Not Enough Time?

Midterms are over, and many of you realized over the past week just how much information there is to study and remember.  And you know it's only going to build up as the semester continues.  You may be wondering whether you actually have the time to complete everything and not die from exhaustion.  The answer is absolutely YES.  You have enough time to do all of your work, and to do it well.  You need to look at how much time you need to spend, and how much time you're actually spending on law school.  You may be surprised at how quickly the time on Facebook or Netflix adds up when you're avoiding schoolwork.  But you do have enough time to do all your work and not die.

This doesn't mean there aren't sacrifices you'll have to make, of course.  There is no way you can have a full-time social life, full-time school, and full-time studying.  There simply are not enough hours in the day.  The key to the law school game is balancing and time management.  I understand as well as anyone who has gone through law school how important it is to take breaks from time to time.  To give your brain a moment to recharge before you tackle the next assignment.  And I, like many of you, did not realize just how difficult and strenuous law school would be before I got here.  Sacrifices definitely had to be made, but I can safely tell you that it's worth it and it's doable.  Here are a few of my tips from my own experience.

Take this time post-midterms (or just mid-semester for those of you without midterms) to seriously analyze where you're at and where you want to be.  If the two are not the same, figure out how to gt there and then DO IT.
