General Board / I think I failed out!
« on: May 12, 2006, 02:20:36 PM »
I feel like Sh*t!! I only think i did well on my contracts final. i feel like i bombed property and con law. i just landed an outstanding paid law clerk position with the NY state attorney general's office. this is a rare opportunity for a first year student. I need above a 70 to stay in and im really sweating it. the tests were ridiculously hard. a few people walked out of property and con law. i dont know what the professors where thinking. all i want is that 70. i will be humiliated if i take this job and then flunk out!!

General Board / Is it possible to sue EBAY????
« on: February 10, 2006, 11:38:01 AM »
I have an online business on ebay and have been supporting myself through law school with it. a few days ago, i received an email that my account had been suspended b/c it was associated somehow with another person who had been suspended. this is NOT true and i dont even know who this person is. well, they cancelled $3,000.00 worth of auctions on me.

I emailed to appeal the supsension. I've received no response. I tried to find a phone number to call them. they state that "since ebay wants to promote an online community, we do not have a call center". well, i searched and searched and found a call center number. I called two days in a row. i was on hold for 29 minutes the first day and no one picked up. the message would say i have a minute to wait and then it would shoot up to 29 minutes. i tried again today and it did the same thing. i dont think they even have people to answer the phones.

I am now sitting on $3,000.00 in merchandise that i cant sell b/c of these retards. i cant get ahold of anyone and no one has thus returned my emails. there must be legal recourse for this. how can they NOT have a call center or deal with customer service issues appropriately. furthermore, how could they cancel an innocent person's account for a FALSE REASON!!

Any suggestions????

At my law school, the cut off is a 70 average which is considered a D. During the fall semester, I was having "too much fun" being away from home and in a different state. My days were filled with car rides to the beach and malls. I figured since I breezed through a T1 undergrade with three major and honors, law school would be easy. Well, while the material is easy (except for future interests in Property :-)), the testing is brutal (which im sure you can all relate to). The last three weeks, I pulled myself together and thought i understood what i needed for my exams. I took the exams and the grades are still pending. however, in the interim i received my LRW paper back (which is worth 20% of my final grade) and it was a 70!! I did wait until the last few days to do the paper and just wanted to get it over with. I feel like a failure and a loser. My other three grades were 90, 86, and 84. I was shocked to get a D. My dreams of being a sucessful criminal attorney have been replaced with thoughts of a menial job. I  have obviously underestimated the rigor of LS. I feel like SH$T and have no motivation to return back to school. Additionally, i am TERRIFIED to get the rest of my grades. ANTWAN offered some very good advice in a previous post.  Im looking for some advice or encouragement. THIS SUCKS!!!!

General Board / transferring for personal reasons
« on: October 31, 2005, 10:34:28 AM »
my fiance will be attending buffalo in the fall of 2006. im currently out of state in law school. due to medical problems, i was advised that if i didnt have a baby soon, i might not be able to have one. so, we went ahead and now im pregnant. im going to try and transfer to buffalo, so we can be close. do you think, this is a good enough reason (providing my grades are decent) for them to allow me to transfer? has anyone else had personal reasons for needing to transfer?

General Board / are your classmates snobby a**holes?
« on: August 25, 2005, 07:31:54 PM »
I just finished my first week as a 1L and the stereotype of bitchy, snobby law students is true. i have the privlege of listening to one girl complain about how her father bought her an audi instead of a BMW. i am fortunate, however to be near such godlike geniuses. another classmate of mine is "not at all" concerned about a 4 hour comprehensive final for one of our courses. he is "very well prepared". another girl rudely yelled at a professor b/c he chose her to explain a case in our reading. she said "im not answering any questions today and if you continue, i will walk out of the class!". it is difficult and saddening to think that these people will be in a very important position of power, if they graduate. then there are the cliques. it took only one week for the high school-like cliques to form. i am really enjoying the academic aspect of LS, but am disgusted about the social aspects. is anyone else feeling this way?
