General Board / What do 2Ls do for semester/winter break?
« on: April 01, 2009, 09:35:12 PM »
Same thing as we did this year?

I'll be damned if I have to work or anything...I demand my month off once again!

Yes, I am already fantasizing about how glorious my winter break is going to be, as that's literally the next meaningful chunk of off-time that I'll have. Yes, I am despondent.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Men, Let's Talk Watches
« on: July 01, 2008, 02:36:43 AM »
What will you be rocking to LS? Daily Quartz beater you got at Target? Graduation present? Item you slaved for a year to proudly purchase?

Will you switch it up for dress or professional wear?

This topic is, of course, way better than talking about laptop bags or what-have-you.

In anticipation of school starting up in a few months, I have been browsing this board and seeing a disturbing amount of people who seem to ooze in-depth knowledge about what we're all going to be going through, as well as how to be prepared for it. There are some threads already in this vein, but in perusing them I find they often quickly turn into rather convoluted back-and-forth or a hash of implied knowledge that I never picked up. In my own confusion (and probable ignorance), I would like to use this thread to ask:

-What do I really NEED to know going into September?
What skills, items, terms, whatever, will they absolutely expect you to know right off the bat? What do I need to do to be prepared for the basics? Know how to write a brief, for example? (I honestly have no idea, just threw that out there.)

-What is not absolutely necessary to know going in, but is still (1) worthwhile to look into and (2) will give me a leg up come this fall?

-And, finally, where might I find this valuable information?

Hopefully we can come up with some helpful responses...I'd really appreciate it, and I'm sure others floating around here would too.

Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Ahhh I just crapped out on my practice test!
« on: November 29, 2007, 02:29:32 AM »
I was hitting 166-67 and today I dropped down to 161. Not a good sign...now I feel like a failure. I did extraordinarily bad on LR today...not a good sign. God I hope I can stay the course and pull this off...


Or else it's Cooley for me...

*plays violin*

College felt like a whirlwind, and now here I am in senior year and my GPA is far from stellar. I should have applied myself more...college really isn't HARD, it just takes a lot of redundant work. Same with the LSAT. I should have studied my ass off more. Two years ago I was a fucken college freshman and if I only knew then what I know now I would be in a totally different place.

On the one hand I mean, it's hard to get focused and be that long-sighted when you're 18, 19. When I was a freshman I wasn't dead sure and set on law school. I probably hardly thought about it. I only wish I would have applied myself more and found out more information to get me in a more preparatory state of mind. I'll have graduated from undergrad this spring and I'll be effin' 20.

But I'm whining...anyways folks, if you're still gearing up for law school and have some time ahead of you, my advice is bust your ass. Hard work does pay off and it feels good. Some things you do have to learn "the hard way," but any time someone can give you advice and spare you pain and stupid decisions, please, please take it. I wish someone would have told me. Anyone can "do their best" and improve their GPA and LSAT with enough forewarning...so do that and get it done. Drop me a note sometime from the Ivies, and best of luck...

I got 166s. Going back through and seeing what I did wrong, I did a separate tally of points I lost for stupid mistakes, i.e. had circled the right answer but changed my mind or was torn between two and put the wrong answer, and I would have blown a 170. And I still have a mountain of prep work to do....my goal is to cut down/eliminate those "stupid errors." I've got more books coming in the mail next week and I'm ready to tear them up and get to it.

I am going to f-in claw my way up the score chart even if they ripped off my hands and I have to take the December test with a pencil in my teeth.

*runs up stairs like Rocky*

Chyeaaaaa.

That is all. Study good, all.
