General Board / Not sure which SBA position to run for... Advice?
« on: September 02, 2008, 01:54:26 PM »
My school holds elections for the SBA positions (as I'm sure most do).  I'm planning on running for one of them, but i'm not sure which one to go with.  I can choose between the following.

1L President
1L Vice President
1L Secretary
1L Treasurer
1L Representative

I asked the current SBA officers for some info on the positions, but they didn't really have much to offer.  they said that it depends on what your class wants you to do.  Does anyone have experience with these positions?  What kinds of duties did you have?  The only one that I dont really want to do is Treasurer, just bc I'm not really a math person (hense the law school plan... lol).

Any advice would be appreciated!  Thanks!

i thought that i could access black's law dictionary from westlaw or lexis or something, but now i can't remember where.  does anyone know which site has the online version of black's?  i tried to poke around westlaw, but didn't come up with anything other than their "word of the day" thing.

thanks!

Where should I go next fall? / is it just me?
« on: July 23, 2008, 06:13:28 PM »
why, oh why, do people want to post topics along these lines...

179/3.98 Where can i get in???

are you serious?  go away!  you can get in at almost every single school, depending on when you apply and how good your essay is.  IMO, ppl post those just to brag about their score/grades. 

(i'm not talking about the ppl who have more "normal" or average scores/grades.)

ah, i feel much better.  :)

Any suggestions on supplies and/or study aids to pick up for an incoming 1L?  Already got the laptop, heavy duty backpack, and about a billion highlighters.  :)
