Advice for 1Ls
You might not want to ask 2Ls for advice. Especially not at the beginning of the year. What with one thing and another they're probably in a bit of a state. Try a 3L or a friendly neighborhood alumnus a few years out who has some perspective.
Not that I'm not going to give y'all advice if you ask for it. I love giving advice! It's like being given a license to rant and ramble, which is a fine gift indeed!
