Is this considered at least a decent intership for a 1L?

Current Law Students / I can't even get a job that doesn't pay.
« on: February 27, 2009, 05:11:18 PM »
I am in the top half of my class at a Top 100 law school and I can't even get a job that does NOT pay.

WTF is wrong with this world.

Thanks in advanced.

Thanks in advanced.

Current Law Students / I just got my grades back...

Does this mean that I fail and should kill myself? NOT A SINGLE DAMN A

Current Law Students / How do most law schools do their grading?

I go to McGeorge, and here a class will take up an entire year.

Therefore, I do not get a grade for any of my classes until the end of next semester.  However, I heard that some schools will divide a class into two courses (i.e. instead of having Civil Procedure, you have Civil Procedure I and Civil Procedure II).

How do most law schools operate?  I only ask because I am considering a transfer.

Current Law Students / What is your typical weekly schedule?
« on: October 18, 2008, 09:32:53 PM »
Here is mine...

Satuday:Bang out Monday's work

Sunday:Bang out Tuesday's work

Monday:Bang out half of Weds.

Tuesday:Bang out other half of Weds. (Weds. is my worst day of the week with 3 classes. Every other weekday has 2 classes except Friday which has only ONE class)

Wednesday:Bang out Thurs.

Thursday:Bang out FRIDAY, which is only one class.  I spend the rest of the day relaxing.

Friday: After class is over at 12:00, I do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING law related.

Am I relaxing too much? How often do you guys usually relax altogether on the weekends and on weekdays?

Choosing the Right Law School / Pacific McGeorge 1L taking questions
« on: October 07, 2008, 08:02:15 PM »

As of right now, I go to Pacific McGeorge, which in itself is a decent law school.  However, Buffalo sent me an interesting letter pretty recently.

It said that although they could not accept me off the waitlist (I was previously waitlisted) they said that if I make it in the top half of my class after my first year grades I should re-apply to transfer.

Is this serious?  Or is this a fairly common thing to get once you are waitlisted.  Thanks in advanced.

Current Law Students / So everyone in law school uses a laptop during class?
« on: September 06, 2008, 08:19:16 PM »
I am serious when I say that about 98% of the people in my classes use laptops to take notes.

I always use the pen and paper when I take notes.  What do you guys usually do?
