Current Law Students / Hornbooks, Canned Briefs, Outlines...confusion
« on: July 13, 2005, 11:42:00 AM »
I am TOTALLY confused on what the following are, because some of them seem to go hand in hand.

What are

1. Hornbooks
2. Canned Briefs (apparently you can buy a book of them?)
3. Commercial Outlines
4. Primers
5. Nutshells

I'm ready a few books that use these terms all the time, and I haven't gotten a clear answer on what they are or how useful they may be.  I've noticed on this site a lot of references to E&E and Gilberts...are those commerical outlines? 

Any help anyone has would be really really great.  Thanks in advance!

Bar Exam Preparation / Should I register for the bar as a 1L?

Is it critical to register for Bar/Bri when I'm only a 1L?  I hear you lock in the price...but how necessary is it?

Thomas Jefferson / Waitlist Madness
« on: May 25, 2005, 03:52:51 PM »
I got waitlisted at TJSL and it's still my top choice.  I've sent letters updating my progress in my work life to continue to show interest.  I was wondering to any experienced students at it worth it to do these things?  Also, if anyone has been waitlisted at TJ, when should one reasonably expect an outright yeah or neah? I've already been accepted to another school...and it seems as though this is taking forever.

Gonzaga / Summer Torts
« on: May 25, 2005, 03:32:47 PM »
Hello out there,

I'm registered for the Summer Torts Course class with DeWolf and I have to say I'm a little nervous.  I just got his class syllabus and the summer cases that we're supposed to brief.  I was wondering if anyone else is taking the course this summer.  Or if anyone who has taken did it go?  What is DeWolf like?  Can I expect my summer to be completely bogged down with studying or is there are smidgen of fun to be had?  Thanks!
