General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Duke Law '09

Thanks for the info. 8:45 is doable i guess.

any guesses on when classes will be starting? i think i saw a schedule somewhere that showed that last spring, 1L classes started at 8:45AM monday-friday.  is that typical, or could we expect something else for this fall?

on the website, i can't remember exactly where i found it, but they have the fall 1l schedule that you can download...classes start at 8:45 and they have all the classes listed, but i think you need to know which section you are in to know your exact schedule...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: ND or Vandy?

queencruella is completely missing the point.  who cares if more random people on the west coast or in other areas outside of the south recognize the Notre Dame name than the Vandy name?  they recognize Notre Dame because of the football team, not the law school, which does very little for your employment opportunities.  when you're looking for a job it's the legal community's opinion that counts.  Vandy is regarded more highly than Notre Dame pretty much everywhere outside of the midwest.  if you definitely want to go to London or know that you want to work in the midwest, go to to ND.  Otherwise, i'd take Vandy.

This is absolutely correct.  Vandy places better almost everywhere (if not everywhere) than ND.  Check out any placement study that has ever been done.  I know there are lots of complaints about them, but the fact that all of them show Vandy to have superior placement than ND in every region has to be worth something.

A PC-compatible laptop is only needed for exams, and even then only if you are using the software as opposed to handwriting.

Thanks inthesun. you are very helpful.  I guess i will keep using my 3-year-old apple and hope that either the software will be allowed this fall, or that a buddy will let me borrow his laptop for exams.

Also, you mentioned 1L exams are only 3-days long. I notice reading and exam period is scheduled for dec. 2 - dec. 18.  any idea where 1L exams will fall in that period? is it like a 2-week reading period and then 3 exam days?

Yes, if you haven't already, you should send transcripts from your undergraduate school (the one that gave you your degree) and your graduate school, if applicable.  Transcripts to LSAC don't count.

To further what Quisenberry said, I just received the following in an email from the admissions office:

Quote
If you have not already done so, please make arrangements to have final
transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work forwarded to our
office.  Your official transcripts must be on file prior to your arrival
at Duke in order to meet the requirements of the American Bar
Association.  Transcripts submitted to LSAC are not sufficient for this
purpose.  Original transcripts must be submitted to our office directly
from the institution.

So yes, send your transcripts in.

new question (particularly to current students):

how important is it to have a PC-compatible laptop? I have a mac and don't really want to get a new laptop.  Is the exam software the only reason to get a PC-compatible one, or are there other reasons that they are preferable to macs?  i know some schools allow you to take exams in the computer lab or borrow a laptop from the library to take exams if you dont have a PC-compatible laptop... does duke have anything like this?

thanks.

Another random question.  I was looking through my admit materials and there is no mention of immunization forms, or having official transcripts sent to Duke, etc.  Does anyone have a list of things we need to do before we get there, or do we not need to do anything other than pay the deposit?
Thanks


hey kapstone, how long did it take for you to receive the admitted student materials after you mailed your deposit? they will be receiving my deposit via fedex tomorrow, so i'm curious as to when i will start getting some info from them...
