Law school classmates are sometimes the hardest to say “no” to because they are adept at arguing that not studying is reasonable. After all, if they can convince someone else to waste time, their own wasting time isn’t as obvious.
Instead, walk away from temptation. Focus on one day at a time. All you can ask of yourself is your best. Work as hard as you can each day while allowing time for meals and sleep. Then, you can go to bed knowing that you did all you could do that day.
