If you only listen to one thing I’ve ever said about law school…listen to this.
Please, I beg you, make sure you’re backing up your work!!!
We just heard from a student who lost his entire Law Review application when his computer died a few hours before it was due. (Yes, we’d suggested he back things up, but who listens?!?)
End result? No Law Review, despite fantastic grades and days of work.
DO NOT LET THIS BE YOU!!!
Given the existence of Dropbox and other similar services, there’s really no excuse for losing work. It’s free! All you do is set up a folder for the work you want backed up, and save your docs there…instead of in some other almost-identical folder on your hard drive which might vanish at a moment’s notice.
Seriously, take five minutes right now and set this up.
You’ll thank me later.
