Studying and Exam Taking / e-casebriefs?
« on: September 09, 2005, 01:56:50 AM »
I know that the reason we write briefs in the first place is to know what to look for...

but do you think it is worth it to buy them as a supplement?

anyone tried them and have opinions on them?

i have kitten who i just weened off the bottle and onto actual food.   about 5 weeks old- maybe 4.5.

hes super cute and I can email you pictures...   I have a dog and a kitten isnt cool, but i felt obligated to finish bottle feeding him and getting him used to real food before adopting him out so he had a chance to fatten up.  come on, you know you want him:)

message me and i can send you pics:)

Where should I go next fall? / UC Davis vs. Loyola LA. Anyone?
« on: May 07, 2005, 02:30:20 AM »
what say you ?  if you had a full ride at LMU law school, and had to pay in-state at davis- which would you pick?  FUdge placement by the way, i am convinced that loyola lies through their teeth to make the employment rate so high.  but really. Is the education better?  job prospects? rep?

ideas would be AWESOME:)

Where should I go next fall? / USC

Anyone know of where I can look to see the waitlist statistics in the past (ie, how many were placed on the waitlist and how many actually got in) over the past few years?  I have tried searching... to no avail.  if there is anyone who knows PLEASE share this info with me:)

i will knit you a scarf as a thank you:)

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / does this mean we are all insane?
« on: April 16, 2005, 01:31:35 AM »
"many schools inflate their “selectivity” by giving fee waivers to applicants who have no chance of getting in.  NYU is reported to have pioneered in this arena, but many others have followed suit."

really.  are we?  perhaps I am crying over spilled milk about the waitlists.  or Hastings being the first school i applied to and the last to let me know (ya HEAR me???? HUH?!?!?)

I think they make it seem harder than it is and we are all giving in to the madness.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / hastings
« on: April 09, 2005, 03:33:23 AM »
ok really....

anyone on here who reads the bad stuff about hastings and believes it is retarded.  its a really nice school. in a great city. 

I havent even heard from them yet!  so i have no ultior motives, since i will be just as happy to attend davis, but honestly.  people were awesome, very smart, and generally a good crowd.  the tour guide is. hmm. special. i honestly dont know how she got in because she came off as being very ditzy, hopefully it is just an act or she was nervous, so dont think  she is representative of the school, but WOW.

sat in on a great class.  the students held their own as far as input, and the area is sooooooooooooooooooo not bad.  gorgeous buildings all around, clean, nothing at ALL like downtown LA

i was thoroughly impressed and hope they give me a shot.
thought i would share

Acceptances / davis!
« on: April 08, 2005, 07:02:32 PM »
yay!  got in after checking the online status today.  Ironically, I am at the coffee shop next to UC Hastings since i just sat in on a class and went on a tour (they wont give them after the 14th, so if i do get a good response from them, then this was my only chance to go).

really.  this has to be a good sign.  if hastings rejects me i think I am gonna hit this up:)

Wait List / USC
« on: April 07, 2005, 09:17:19 PM »
wow.  my first waitlist, but it ain't a bad one to not be rejected by outright.

it is funny though, you can so tell how schools send everything out in batches since a couple other people just received the same letter.   I am pretty happy about that cuz i am still waiting on hastings, and since i havent even gone to decision yet and a ton of people just got rejected, there is still hope.
phew.

I feel better though.  at least I am still in the game somewhat

Where should I go next fall? / phew. good news about hastings...
« on: April 06, 2005, 02:09:15 AM »
no- this is not an acceptance thread, but i thought i should share that I talked to a 1L hastings student who had NO idea where the 'competitive' rumors came from regarding hastings.  all he could think of was that they might have to do with the curve which isnt bad either.  only 1/3 of the class can get A's.  then 50% of the leftovers get B's, the rest get what they deserve.  I dont think its too shabby, and i know that emory has the same type of curve.  i guess if you are the super-anal "i must ace EVERYTHING regardless of whther or not i understand it" sorta person it might be tiring. 

His only gripe was that there was no campus.  other than that, he said the workload was more than comfortable, and that it gave him far too much time to watch tv... also, he likes his fellow students, loves his classes, and was really into all of the clubs and special interest focuses that hastings offered.  I officially am going to ignore the "soandso told me that their best friend's cousin's boyfriend saw someone ripping up the study guides"rumors, or the 'don't ever join a study group because they are all backstabbing bastards" rumors, and hope to attend if I am one of the privilaged ones admitted.  or waitlisted.   

I am gonna visit on friday.  anyone want me to look for anything or have any recommendations?

:)
