I really should have dealt with this issue more before school (toastmasters, more therapy, something), but I really underestimated how much it was going to debilitate me. The professors definitely acted as though, I am far from being the first student of theirs to have this issue and they said as much. Now that my anxiety level is coming down, I really need to catch up. My fears were keeping me from working and concentrating on the first couple of weeks. I'm not even into week 3 and I feel really behind! Now that I know how each professor organizes their class it makes it much easier to tackle the work, why do they give so much work the 1st week? I mean, you really have no idea what you should be looking for, thinking about, or how to pace yourself.
It seems a little sadistic, welcome to law school.
