Transferring / From Tennessee to Vanderbilt?
« on: July 03, 2005, 03:29:19 PM »
Depending on circumstances, I am thinking about trying to transfer from University of Tennessee to Vanderbilt.  Tennessee I a high T2 school, currently ranked 52, and I also got into Baylor and University of Florida (from out of state), both low T1 schools.  I only got a 158 on the LSAT.  Do y'all think it would be possible to transfer to Vandy on grades alone, or will I need to retake the LSAT?  I'm only asking now because if I need to retake the LSAT, I need to start working on it now--I have a very hard time with standardized tests.

Studying and Exam Taking / Software Legal Dictionary

PM me if you want a free copy of a software legal dictionary.  I ordered the file off of the Internet, and it came on a floppy disk, which royally pissed me off, since my laptop doesn't have a floppy drive.  Anyways, I had to get the install files off of the disk, and I figure that since I have them, I ought to offer them up to anyone who's interested.

Has anyone ever used it?  Is it worth it?  I've heard all sorts of bad things about it, but I just downloaded the trial, and it seems ok to me.  Of course, I'm not in law school yet, so I don't know how useful it is. 

Anyone used it?  Thoughts?

General Board / Canned Briefs
« on: June 27, 2005, 04:20:30 PM »
I just found out what my casebooks are going to be.  The bookstore hasn't received orders from my property and criminal law profs yet.  I've been looking at Legalines, Apen's canned briefs, and High Court Case Summaries, and the only casebook I have that seems to have canned briefs written for it is my civil procedure book.  I'd really like to have canned briefs for my other classes--can anyone recommend anything?

Civil Procedure, Yeazell, 6th ed.

Contracts:  Cases and Materials, Murray, 5th ed.

Tort Law, Phillips, 3rd ed.

General Board / Government?
« on: June 23, 2005, 01:59:43 PM »
Ok, I'm getting ready to start law school in the fall, and I've never taken a class in government.  Ever.  I never took PoliSci or anything as an undergrad, and I graduated from a private high school where I wasn't required to take a government class.  So do I need to know a little more than common knowledge about how the government works to do well in law school?  Should I get an old PoliSci textbook and read through it?  Any thoughts?

Studying and Exam Taking / E&E and Gilberts?
« on: June 22, 2005, 11:34:40 AM »
I just bought the Examples and Explanations 1st year pack, per PSII instructions.  Should I buy Gilbert's first year pack too?  Is there a real difference between E&E and Gilbert's Law Summaries?

Washburn / Another Just Got Accepted Post...

How's Washburn?  Do people like it?  I just got in...

Also, does anyone know anything about when they give out scholarship decisions?  My acceptance letter didn't say anything about it, and I'd be disappointed if I didn't get anything.
