one time in class the professor was like:  "hey, learn this crap cause it is important"

some chick was like:  "hey i have a va-j!"

then the professor, being SO SEXIST, was like:  "you are only good at choosing undergarments!"

chicks are 1st and 2nd at my school dope

You are in the right place if you want to be there. 

Half the class is in the bottom half.  And if they all collectively dropped out, there would still be a bottom half of the class.

If your school is persuaded that you are a dope, then it likely has a mechanism to blast you to the curb. 

The issue is what you want out of life.  Stay if you want, go if you want [if your not willing to graduate in the bottom half of your class].  But remember, every law school graduates a class every year with people willing to graduate in the bottom half of the class.

Current Law Students / Re: Obtaining a job in DUI law?

I prosecuted some DUIs as a student.  In my state, the Sup. Ct. will give, upon application, Legal Intern Certificates to students who have over 2/3 of their credits completed at an ABA school.  With the cert. you can prosecute misdemeanors - of which DUI is an M1.  Great experience, and I think I could defend them right when I pass the July Bar (although I'm not interested in that).

So, my advice is, look into that w/your State juris.

Generally law students are independent thinkers, or are at least taught how think independently.  Your approach is paternalistic - like your candidate.

It is a self study bar course.  I think it is cheaper than BarBri.  I don't know anything about it - other than a friend used it last July, liked it, and passed the CA bar exam.

It is your time/effort.  From my perspective I would put in the effort one more semester.  If you get same/similar results then I would agree with cutting back on the time/effort.  But, if you 'rock it' in spring [and 1Ls do have big shifts] then you would obviously keep putting in the time/effort.

A classmate of mine had a 2.3 during 1L fall and a 3.6 in spring [on a 2.6 curve].

Your parents are right.  Also, if it walks like a crybaby, and quacks like a crybaby, then ...

answer:  no

I:  R.11 sanction to support MSJ?  no.  MSJ comes at completion of discovery.  Sanction was for lack of evidence to support contention of initial pleading.  Worlds apart in litigation time line. 

   Sub-I:  does it make any difference that MSJ filed in St. based upon Fed. R.11 sanction?  no.  R.11 sanction was for fed. ct. complaint.  Pl filed a St. ct. complaint also = separate deal - St. must address its own complaint.

I:  claim preclusion? not applicable.  case did not go to judgment on the merits - ignore preclusion discussion by folks.
