Current Law Students / Please help me with Professional Responsibility
« on: October 25, 2007, 01:15:44 PM »
My teacher is f'n horrible, this is by far the worst class I have ever had in law school.  Suggest supplement/supplements to help me learn this *&^% on my own.  Thank you.

Transferring / Meeting with Admissions
« on: June 05, 2007, 07:55:25 AM »
So I busted my ass and finished in the top 1% of my class at a T4, and I am applying to transfer to a high T2 which is not transfer friendly (receive about 40-50 transfer apps, take around 4-5 students).  I want the best chance possible so I contacted the admissions office and setup a meeting next week since it has been recommended to visit schools that someone wants to transfer to.  WTF do I do at the meeting?  Just ask questions that I already know the answer to?  Beg them to let me in?  Should I bring knee pads and KY?

Current Law Students / Most Hated 1L Class
« on: April 29, 2007, 04:55:54 PM »
I'm going to have to go with Civil Procedure, it is just too boring to make me even slightly interested and memorizing rules this semester has been a grueling task.

Do Westlaw points transfer when you transfer schools?, I was hoping to save up for something big my 3L year.

Current Law Students / Civil Procedure
« on: April 05, 2007, 08:04:17 PM »
I aced Civ Pro last semester, but all the rules this semester have me freaking out about the exam.  Anyone have a summary/compilation/ outline of just the FRCP?

Current Law Students / ALWD v. Bluebook
« on: February 24, 2007, 12:22:29 PM »
What are the practical differences?  Which one is better?  I currently go to a school that uses ALWD, will I be confused if I am forced to use a Bluebook at some point?

Job Search / State Supreme Court Internship

Are these as impressive as 1L internships with federal judges?  Would you take one over a paying firm job?

Current Law Students / Doing worse second semester
« on: January 30, 2007, 01:19:12 PM »
I read all these fairy tale stories on here about the person with the 2.0 GPA first semester who made straight A's the rest of law school.  Anyone have an opposite story, did anyone do really well first semester and then do horrible the next semester.  I'm starting to get sick of all the people at my school saying how if you made dean's list this time that you probably won't next semester because it switches around, blah blah.  Are they just making themselves feels better or is there some truth to it?  I can't decide if the people who did poor last semester are going to give up and slack off or really pump it up making it harder for me to stay at the top of the class.  Comments?

Job Search / How long to wait?
« on: January 26, 2007, 02:48:47 PM »
How long does it generally take to hear back from Judges/ Firms after you send out your resume, either positive or negative.  I am not sure if I should go ahead and turn in my application to McDonalds for the summer yet or wait it out a little longer.

Job Search / Which File format to use?
« on: January 20, 2007, 07:17:42 PM »
I am applying to a firm that does all their applications via electronic submission.  I have to attach my resume, should I send it in word format?, wordperfect?, PDF?  I don't want to send it one way and have the formatting messed up, nor do I went to send 3 different versions of my resume.  I was thinking PDF, am I wrong to assume everyone has adobe acrobat?
