General Board / PMBR- Once and for all, is it worth it?
« on: March 08, 2010, 10:16:44 PM »
The PMBR Bullies are on campus attempting to scare us out of $375 or $575, respectively.  These are 2 different packages offered, both
are for a 2 day crash course on all the 6 basic topics and various other goodies, including books, lectures, etc.

I am signed up for BarBri's full course this summer.  Question is, worth droppin the cash for this weekend event?

Socratic Method / Character and fitness
« on: September 08, 2009, 12:19:42 AM »
I am a 3L who is worried about the character and fitness portion of the Bar exam-
specifically, here's my dirty laundry:

Terrible credit.  Defaulted on 2 credit cards and had car repossessed, now there is a judgment lien against me for 10k.  Of course, my reason was "i could afford it at the time, but i lost my job and went to law school and halfway through i couldn't afford it anymore.  i tried to negotiate and plead my case, etc"

Any chance i can get licensed?

General Board / summer job ideas
« on: March 24, 2009, 01:33:47 AM »
I don't go to a top 20, I am not in the top 20 and I don't have a job.  Anyone have any ideas of summer employment opportunities that do not involve a law firm.  Worked at a firm last summer and hated it, dreaded every morning.  I want something "different".  Help!

2L job search / Where do bottom half students get employed?
« on: November 18, 2008, 03:22:27 PM »
Ok, so its obvious that top half of students will generally get an offer quick.  But where do the bottom half (51-100%) end up getting employed. 
Ok i got it- mcdonald's, walmart, etc. 

But anyone from experience or know anyone who was in the bottom half where they ended up?

General Board / crap school with crap grades and crap attitude
« on: October 01, 2008, 02:51:37 AM »
i just started 2L and its been the battle of the feelings- my grades last year sucked, but i did get a summer job at least working at afirm.  ive been rejected from every OCI and my outlook is bleak.  whats more is that i cant sleep at night worried about having no money and no grades to get a job.  further, i live in a crap town with crap people and its a struggle to get to class each day, much less even read.  i mean, why is con law so f-ing boring?  why is evidence so f-ing confusing.  why is fed tax so f-ing intricate?  why do all my classes suck?  i feel like im going to fail every exam because i cant get into the groove.

is this normal?

Why are there so many feminine hygiene product bags in law school?  Is it just mine?  I go to a TTT (Third Tier Toilet) and half the time I think I am at Harvard by the way some of these elitists act.  Seriously, what gives?

General Board / Army JAG Internship- Interview/Application - Anyone?
« on: February 21, 2008, 02:52:26 PM »
I am a 1L with ok grades and I just had an interview with an ARMY JAG captain- i guess it went ok.  
My question is to anyone who has either interviewed or applied to JAG summer internship- and has been accepted or rejected.  I am curious as to the weight of "soft" factors they look at.  I went to military college (suspended my commission for later date), have little work experience and some volunteer- im involved in a few clubs and organizations here at school- street law, CLS and moot court.  Just want to touch base with anyone with experience

Thanks.

Studying and Exam Taking / suspecting a cheater
« on: December 12, 2007, 12:34:32 AM »
hey guys, dont know about your law school but for some reason ours lets us come and go as we please during the exam.  There is this one kid in particular- very very arrogant thinks hes  hot shite and all that jazz.  thats ok, no harm there.  however, during the first exam he left 3 times and the more recent exam he left 6 times- this is all in a 3 hour span.  now, tell me, why else would u leave teh room 3,4,5 or 6 times?  of course there is probably no way of proving it, but does anyone have any experience with cheaters on the classroom- he could potentially fukc up the entire curve and screw EVERYONE- this kid doesnt care, he is the most selfish fukc ive ever come across.  tried to be his friend but it just didnt work out.  then again, he could have had a explosive diarreah...??

General Board / 1L summer abroad
« on: November 15, 2007, 02:06:16 PM »
hey guys,
I am interested in studying abroad this summer- specifically, University of Miami's Italy and Greece program.  Anyone know anything about it from personal experience?  I really want to do this since I never had the chance to study abroad in undergrad because of my athletic scholarships. 

Any recommendations or advice is greatly appreciated!
