Current Law Students / How competitive is a judicial internship?
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:03:48 PM »
It seems like a lot of people I know at my school are working for judges during the school year.  How competitive is it to get these?  I'm middle of my class at a school ranked 40s to 50s. 

Current Law Students / Screwed in Legal Writing
« on: January 19, 2009, 04:06:59 PM »
I am very discouraged by my 1L grades this last semester...I did above the curve in all of them with the exception of legal writing, which was a C+.  We only had one grade, a memo, and so it was likely a crapshoot.  Is this going to really impair me?  I used to pride myself on my writing and actually received high regards for my undergrad thesis that I presented at a few international conferences...

I'm not planning on dumping my 1st semester notes or outlines, rather I am going to file them away in a cabinet.  Is this okay or should I plan on making that info more readily available? 

Current Law Students / should be shut down!!

That website is the most troublesome website I have ever encountered.  There are too many pop-ups and it frequently locks up my computer.  I think it has even infected my computer with some nasty virus...unfortunately, it is almost always, the top site on a search engine search for cases. 

I've heard that my Civ Pro professor thinks that good answers on his exams will have a lot of policy issues.  Would someone clarify what is meant by this?  Perhaps with an explanation in the context of Civ Pro?

Current Law Students / Summer Study Abroad
« on: July 12, 2008, 09:53:25 PM »
I'm considering doing a law school study abroad program but am not sure of the benefits.  I've got a lot of foreign experience already from having lived, studied and worked in Russia and Argentina for a couple of years total.  If I'm interested in practicing some type of intl. law, is it worth it to do the law school study abroad?    Also, it looks like in many cases you have to be ready to spring the total amount for the cost of the trip expenses up front and early on. Anyone have any personal experience?

I have basically ruled out going to Baylor given that my application has been in review since October but I think that I am deserving of an answer, any answer, in a seemingly prompt manner.  I have not been waitlisted or deferred and everytime I call the admissions office, they tell me that my file is still undergoing review...what the hell??

Choosing the Right Law School / Tulane vs SMU
« on: March 21, 2008, 06:15:46 AM »
I'm really caught between these two schools.  I live in Dallas right now so SMU certainly would be my easiest option and would probably give me a leg up  in the Dallas and larger Texas markets.  My interest lies in international law, a field in which both schools seem to be particularly strong.  I wouldn't mind staying in Texas for a few years after law school but I ultimately would like to be more mobile (NY, Chicago).  Would the Tulane degree potentially provide me with a mobility that SMU may not?  Also, while I haven't received a financial aid package from either, I have been hearing that SMU's financial aid is much more generous so my debt would be a lot less (N.O. is also more expensive than Dallas too, I believe).  Could anyone verify this info and/or add their 2 cents?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / GSU/Atlanta Discussion
« on: March 03, 2008, 10:17:27 AM »
I went and visited GSU for the first time last week.  It was only the second time that I had been to Atlanta.  I really liked GSU and its facilities.  I think the library was a little uninspiring (it is completely windowless) but overall, the facilities were impressive.  As far as Atlanta itself, I still had trouble seeing it as a city in which I really would want to live.  It is certainly beautiful but it doesn't seem to have the diversity and culture of a typical large city.  I'm coming from Dallas, a city which lacks a lot too but still has a great restaurant and night life scene:  features that seem to be absent in Atlanta.  Without going into too much detail, I will say that Atlanta might consider changing its nickname from "The city too busy to hate" to "The city too lazy to hate."
