Author: Susan Good

Dear NDLS,

This week is the beginning of the last 100 days of the 3Ls law school experience. It’s been 2.65 years of life changing experiences. I was going to create list of ways to survive the last 100 days of classes, but wikihow was already there. I can’t top things like play with your mini skateboard (tech deck)…so I figured I just share the list with you. Have fun.
