I'd suggest you post in the prelaw section.

If you want to work for a large firm also might want to go to schools in the Top 14 specifically Harvard, Yale, NYU and Columbia. They feed into larger New York firms more than most others.

If its not required its not necessary--however, I've noticed that come exam time it seems those that type (assuming they can type faster than they write) seem to have an advantage.  There's a lot of info to get out on an exam, and its hard to handwrite it all (we had people who handwrote first quarter switch for second and third to computer, and they agreed it made it easier).  But if you aren't a good typer anyway, you'd probably be more comfortable handwriting your exam, and you'd have no disadvantage.   I would suggest, as TAS21 did, to have a computer available for you outlining though--I couldn't imagine if I made a handwritten outline, decided I didn't like the organization, and having to write the d**mn thing all over again!

Even in the 70s, before laptops existed, anyone who wasn't an idiot had his/her typewriter handy for exams.

Hey I think you are missing one huge factor in your plan to scan all your books... when you scan a file onto your laptop, the files are HUGE. I had to scan signature pages and handwritten changes at work and one day i got the idea to just scan the whole 50 page agreement. Needless to say the files were so big it slowed down my comp so bad and just killed my memory. I can only imagine what such large files would do to a laptop. Just thought I'd give you the heads up!!

Thanks for all of the input guys, but i think i will be carrying out my plan come august. I will try it to start the semester, and if it doesn't seem feasible, i will abandon the idea. But i would like to try it, it may just work for me.

gratias tibi ago, my friends

File sizes are as big or as small as you want them to be. What you did was scan at a huge resolution, which gives you 50MB, 75MB or greater file sizes. All you have to do is change the quality and DPI settings and those same pictures (especially in black and white) won't even be 50KB in size. I've downloaded 500 page books of scanned material that don't measure over 5 megabytes.

Why do so many of the girls in law school get mad when they find out about me (or other guys) dating undergrad girls. 

Maybe they should realize that we are not looking for a wife and just want to have a good time.

Dating undergrad girls means less gossip to worry about and less commitment.

A girl’s education is great, but it will still not make up for her being ugly.

I am tired of "educated" girls in med school, law school, etc thinking they should be desirable to men just because of their degree.

Guys like beauty, everything else is secondary.

You sir sound like a great catch.

What do you think about the US and China relations in the future?

Its going to be a rocky experience

Does the Olympics have any effect on our relationship with China?

Other than lend credence to China this sort of stuff is rather temporary. Did the last olympics change our relationship with Greece?

Why is it important to have a relationship with China?

they are the worlds biggest and least tapped market. they can provide us with cheap labor. ignoring them does a disservice to our economic prospects among many other things.

Glad the board is heating up a bit. Good to see new topics outside of the ordinary "what are the elements of negligence" type posts. So, to continue on in this more exciting manner...

Have you noticed that law school chicks "go down" much faster than chicks from undergrad. I attribute it to the high level of stress and believe they will do whatever you ask(within reason) because they are so releived to focus on someTHING besides a textbook.

I've gotten great dome from 5 chicks here since August. This never happened during undergrad, so I don't think it's a coincidence!

Some women need small, less threatening objects to play with.
