Current Law Students / Anyone excited for 2L?
« on: July 13, 2005, 04:40:27 PM »
I kind of feel like there's something wrong with me for being so excited about 2L. I was absolutely frustrated by 1L and the drudgery of it all, but there's something so liberating about being able to choose your own classes, have a blank slate with new professors and classmates, actually have the time to participate in some other activities. Even cite-checking on law journal seems fun compared to pretending to care about Civ Pro! Anyone else with me, or am I being completely irrational in my newfound excitement about law school?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Hastings WL is moving

Hey does anyone know how many students are on the waitlist? I know that it's supposedly not ranked in the traditional sense, but it seems that a lot of applicants have been waitlisted. Also, does anyone know when the deposits for admitted students were due? Just hoping to get a better idea of when the wave(s) of acceptances will come.

Choosing the Right Law School / How easy is it to transfer?
« on: May 25, 2004, 09:08:16 AM »
Last year, I applied to seven ambitious schools and two less-so and gained acceptance to both my safeties and was rejected from the others. Wanting to stay at my job another year and to mull my options, I deferred admission at one and applied to a couple more schools this year, but unfortunately, I am now stuck on waitlists. In the meantime, I visited the school that I deferred from recently and realized that I really didn't like the atmosphere and the people I met, who seemed bored and more interested in partying and getting into big firms.

I'll be 24 this year, and I know it's not old, but I really want to get moving on my legal education and I'm excited to be back in the classroom again. In your opinion, if I don't get off the waitlist at the school of my choice, how easy is it to apply as a transfer for next year? My reasoning is that the 1L curriculum is basically the same at all ABA schools and it might be worth it to try and transfer during the second and third years, when I'll have some choice in coursework. Anyone have any insight on how many transfers schools tend to accept? Thanks in advance.
