Anyone summer associate here and have any useful input that I can't find using NALP or Vault? Thanks in advance.

My prof covered some of the older stuff, but the bulk of the class was related to more recent decisions, so the newest edition was the best option for me, but even then, some of the stuff was so new it wasn't in the books yet.

I kept them on my nightstand and used them as mini-reviews at night. Like the previous poster said, it is easy to remove what subjects your prof didn't cover. I also liked the mini-hypos. But agree, it by no means should be your only way of studying. Outline for yourself and study it. use the cards, if at all, to supplement or test yourself.

A great deal of government agencies hire from their summer honors program.

Depends on the state and the statute for DWI/DUI. In some states, that is enough. Take the other poster's advice.

Once again... PENN STATE  DICKINSON is not PENN. Two different schools.

Penn State Dickinson = Carlisle and University Park
Penn = Philly

What I hate is when law schools stack a particular section with top students, and because of the mandatory curve, someone loses their scholarship. Thankfully, that didn't happen to me, but I have some friends who suffered because of it.

Overcoming the fear and uncertainty associated with starting a law school. It is difficult to walk away from a career and the certainty associated with it. This is especially true when you read or hear all the horror stories associated with 1L. But if you can get by that (i.e. If you really want it), you'll do it and be glad you did. Plus, you'll find out it isn't as horrifying as everyone makes it out to be.
