Before you bother with 1L of a Ride, let me copy-paste a recent comment I made about the plethora of free resources that will be of far greater help to you:

There is plenty of excellent advice available for free online, often from current students that did extremely well at T14s (and unlike some books or prep courses, it's literally as modern as possible, not outdated). I would start with (1) these (2) three (3) posts. Then, read through all the other free advice collected here by /u/Hstrat.

Once you've exhausted those, read Getting to Maybe (as many online guides will recommend). You can buy it on Amazon but there are also free PDFs floating around the internet. If you do that plus all the advice linked above, you'll be way ahead of the game. If you want to go even further, there are free prep courses like this one from Yale, this one from Penn, or this one from the Dean of Berkeley. You could also watch recordings of a bunch of actual classes at UVA to get a feel for the flow of lectures and cold calls, and familiarize yourself with what to expect on day one. Similarly, there are a bunch of orientation videos like "overview of the American legal system," "briefing a case," and "overview of the 1L curriculum" that you could get a head start on.
