If this is representative of your writing style, you should probably work on making it more readable (eg more pronouns and punctuation, fewer run-on sentences) before the writing sample, and certainly before law school starts.
If you're not responding well to your tutor, you can always change. But 9am isn't an unreasonably early start, and homework is a way to do better in the sessions you're paying for.
That was really hard to read. I'm pretty unsure of what is going on but if you don't like your tutor, just switch. Your not going to benefit much if you're not happy with his style of tutoring.
But honestly, just to be blunt, being able to be somewhere by 9am isn't something you should have to work on.
Good advice, I’m a single sole support parent so as much as I’d like to join a club or team I doubt I’ll have the time.
I think asking around and making connections with upper years is probably the way I’ll go about it.
The best mark I received in 1L was on an exam where I wrote my own summary start to finish.
I used other summaries exactly three times in 1L, to look up an answer during an exam that I didn't have in my own. On all three occasions, the answer wasn't in the other summaries either.
