I have a bunch of 1L/2L casebooks and supplement for sale.  Some of the casebooks are not in the greatest condition but they have all the pages.  AS you can imagine there is a lot of highlighting and writing in most the the books.  I don't have any prices for them but we can work something out.  I would prefer to sell bundles rather than individual books.

Current Law Students / Citing to the record
« on: February 18, 2009, 02:13:06 PM »
I have to start my appellate brief but the professor did not explain how to cite to the record. I have a packet with depos, answers, etc.  Do I just number them as though it was one document?  Thanks.

Current Law Students / Transfer
« on: October 08, 2008, 09:44:50 AM »
I am currently at a T4 but its not where I want to be.  I am thinking about moving back to Texas, specifically Houston.  Ideally I would like to transfer to UH, but I was wondering if it would make sense to try to transfer to STCL.  I know its only a T4 but it seems to place really well in Houston.  Would this make sense?  Its where I want to be so I know it makes sense for that reason.  I think I might have just answered my question.  I like the school I am at right now but its in the middle of nowhere with pretty limited opportunities.  I also realize that transferring to UH would be a long shot, so that whys I am considering STCL.  Also, what would I need to do to transfer to STCL (gpa, rank, etc.).


Current Law Students / Schedule
« on: June 21, 2008, 08:33:18 AM »
So I just got my class schedule for 1L and listed next to each class is the instruction method, it is either LE or AP.  Anyone know what that means? 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Wait list time frame
« on: June 12, 2008, 11:48:03 AM »
I have already been accepted to law school but I still have two schools that I have been wait listed at (one of which I really want to go to).  I was just wondering when an appropriate time to give up is.  Obviously I need a certain amount of time to get loans, find a place to live, move, etc.  Has the time to give up already gone?  I know regardless of what happens I will still be in law school in the fall but knowing my luck I will get accepted to the to one of my wait lists the day I sign a lease on an apartment.  I hate wait lists.

Choosing the Right Law School / Waitlists...
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:21:01 PM »
I have been wait listed at two schools (one of which I would really like to go to).  I was just wondering if it is appropriate to email a school you have been waitlisted at to see if they have started going to the wait list or if they now have a better idea as to when or if they will use the wait list.  Also are schools usually willing to tell you were on the wait list you are as far as a ranking goes?  Thanks.

Law School Admissions / Still no decision
« on: May 09, 2008, 08:42:10 AM »
I have one school left that I still havent gotten a decision from (and of course it is a school I really want to go to).  I applied in December, went complete in January, emailed three weeks ago to get a status check and I was told no decision had been made, I emailed again on Tuesday and again I was told that there still has not been a decision made.  Would I be correct in assuming that if it has taken this long and they still dont have a decision that I probably wont be getting accepted?  Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / Law firns pay off student loans?
« on: April 29, 2008, 11:11:22 AM »
I was talking to someone at the weekend who mentioned that some law firms (specfic types of law firms were not discussed) will actually pay of your student loans for you.  Does this really happen?  It seems a bit strange that a company would be willing to pay off someones loans.  For all they know they could just be taking the job for no other reason than to get there loans paid off and then they may leave to pursue something else. 

Law School Admissions / Status check
« on: April 21, 2008, 08:41:13 AM »
I emailed one of my schools to get a status check and they informed me that they have not yet made their decision and it also said "feel free to check back in a few weeks".  When I first applied they said that they hope to have all decisions out before May.  Taking all that into consideration is it safe to say that the best I can hope for is a waitlist? Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / scholarships
« on: April 18, 2008, 11:59:17 AM »
I was just wondering if schools ever offer students scholarships after the first year(assuming of course that you have kicked ass).
