@KnowledgeableRitzyWasp: thanks for always being so nice to everybody! Wish I was half as cool as you are!
hi yall
hey cowgirl
@GreenJumbledScorpion: If that's right, if one can RA remotely, then that makes more sense. But I have another question about this. For many students, I think, their summer employment in 1L is supposed to help them pay for rent over the summer for wherever they have happened to live for the nine months of the academic year. If one has to move halfway across the country for a judicial internship (or other summer employment opportunity), one would presumably need a place to live there. I'm not sure how the summer employment would be able to cover both an apartment or whatever for three-ish months halfway across the country as well as the one you've signed a lease on and have lived in for the entire academic year.
But is that what people do. They just save as much as possible and use whatever they make over the summer to help cover a place wherever they're working as well as their original place?
I suppose they could sublease their original place. That might actually be a good idea.
Is "TopTutor" a scam bot?
slow day huh

@manifestT14acceptances: no I told him I didn’t have instagram

@abbas24: tons of practice tests and drills

best site/program to use?
i mostly used khan academy and lawhub. i also did hire a tutor once i started scoring in the 170s because i thought it would be helpful for learning more test-taking techniques but it actually wasn't super helpful for me aside from having someone in my corner who could cheer me on and root for me and stuff
my general advice for those looking for a site/program is to try to get a good understanding of your strong/weak points before signing onto a program, and that a good way to do that is to blind review any practice/diagnostic test you've taken/plan on taking
Use Kaplan
you ever remember that you exist and have wants and needs and goals and feel disgusted
