Re: Law School

I'd probably assume a minimum 15% increase from actual scores to what is self-reported on TLS. I'm pretty sure that Themis provides your percentile upon each exercise's completion, based on all of that year's Themis subscribers.



Also, 2L is in the books. I'm not sure if I tried harder or just picked work-intensive classes, but it seemed a bit more work than past 2Ls expressed to my then-1L self. But had a good time none-the-less.

Very true. I never went on TLS during LS, but it was helpful during bar prep is all.

Absolutely, that's what I was getting at with the warning about stress/anxiety. I assumed that the self reporting was way too high, but I know people who got really concerned over it is all.


Congrats on finishing 2L. Prepare for a relaxing 3L (hopefully)

Same. Did a clinic + worked for an attorney locally first semester. 2nd semester, I went to corporations like twice and did a ton of golfing/drinking. It was fun.

Re: Law School

I've always said if 3L was useless you're doing it wrong. Should be doing clinic or taking bar subject classes or making the most of your time. Just bc it isn't 1L stresful doesnt mean it's useless.

Re: Law School

working on an appeal this summer for the firm i am working at; appeals has to be the most miserable work an attorney can do (i guess it will be awesome if we win the thing). there are literally 3 different sets of rules that need to co-exist with each other. first week in i've done 3 pages lol.

Re: Law School

Speaking of appeals I randomly checked the status of the bar bri antitrust class action the other day. It's still in appeals and I probably still won't get paid part of the settlement for at least a year one of the websites talked about. Been pending since like 2011 I think.
