Law School Roundup #155

Welcome to Law School Roundup # 155.

This week, the pre-Ls struggled with law school decisions, the 1Ls discovered that yes, grades are are a rude awakening, the 2Ls searched increasingly desperately for jobs, and the 3Ls awoke from their holiday reverie to start worrying about the bar exam. If you're not staring blankly at your computer screen, wishing the winter and the new semester would just. go. away., here's this week's selection of posts from law students aspiring, recovering, and still slogging away:

How public—like a Frog—
To tell one's name—the livelong June—
To an admiring Bog!
