One of the kids in my section is stressing me out. And by stressing me out I literally FEEL the competitive aura around him.

Or if someone wants to explain with like Lucy v. Zehmer that would be great. Damn ma, way to ignore my texts! Also, t...

Re: Class of 2021: It's so c0Ld in the D.

Did any of you guys get E&Es, or any other supplements? I'm getting the two that my teachers recommended but I'm not sure beyond that! I asked the 2Ls/3Ls here and most of them said they're really unnecessary because of how my professors do shit and not because of the subject. LOST AF RIGHT NOW.

Hey Nebby - what's the best way to go about contacting those who have already transferred from current 1L school to potential/desired transfer school? Asking for a friend and not as a 0L who's scared to post this question.

Got dinged, but not unexpected. Below medians, and got The Email back in February. For you LSL peeps in the future, let me say this: The Hold Tight Email is NOT indicative of your chances AT ALL. You can be accepted/rejected/waitlisted - who knows! The Email is just an email, THAT'S IT.
