Current Law Students / Re: Pennoyer V Neff
« on: September 14, 2006, 05:16:05 PM »
I was under the impression that Pennoyer was not bad law, and that in 1990, The Supreme Court of US majority opinion held that Pennoyer and the test under INternational SHoe could coexist. Is that the case or am I missing something?

Go! Go! 

Wow. You're just so eloquent. Your the ass that took the thread negative in the first place so shout your pie-hole and move on.

I would say that one problem is that if you're going Part-time, you likely work and therefore don't have time to do the extras or be involved in campus life aside from class. Also, you don't get to do the externships.

But, the negatives aren't too many to list. It's actually smart for some people to do. My reason for going Part-time is that while working for the next four years, I will have contributed to my retirement fund well over what I'm paying in tuition. Not many Full-time students can say that considering the ABA only lets them work 20 hours.

So their are some pros and cons as with everything.

Wow! 3.4 isn't top 35%?  It seems that it would be at my school (Whittier). Here they barely give out any A's at all and the median is something like a 78%.

Transferring / GPA/Rank Questions - GPA versus Percentages...
« on: June 14, 2006, 12:45:02 PM »
I'm just wondering how law schools calculate your GPA and class rank. Do they do it strictly on a 4.0 scale or take the percentage you received per class? I would think they would have to take the actual grade recieved in classes to get rank since there could be numerous people with the same GPA. Any ideas?? ???

Transferring / Soft Grades

Did anyone get "soft grades" at the end of there 1st semester of school? By soft I mean grades that will be counted as 50% of your full year grades.
