There are state judges who have graduated from Nova. I voted for one in the 2004 election. Federal-probably not.

I'm staying with my family in Broward County, so that's all taken care of.
I'm not subletting - I'm renting an apartment that's designed for short-term occupancy. I hope it's going to work out. I had no luck with subleases, either. People are too sketchy.
Did you ask your firm for suggestions? There might be an attorney who's renting out a room or something.
I found a short-term apartment in Atlanta on Craig's list. There are also a lot of people from Orlando and the Orlando area at school. Did you try asking around? I know a couple of 3L's who have offers there; maybe they have some ideas.
Good luck! You're with a great firm!
You know, that's something that I'm concerned about. I'm probably just paranoid, but I don't want to give the impression that I'm just getting out of rehab. I don't have a problem with drinking, ethically or personally; I just can't do it.
If they make a big deal about it just tell them that you're a recovering alcoholic. That'll shut 'em up.I've heard that drinking is a big part of the summer experience, but I don't drink. Will anybody notice if I order my coke without rum? I don't want to appear stuffy, but I really can't drink. Is there a diplomatic way to handle it, or is unlikely that anybody will care?
I agree with wakaranai. I've tried to quietly abstain from drinking before, but it seems to make my friends/companions uncomfortable - they ask questions, want to know why I'm so up-tight, etc. With friends, I just explain what's up, but I don't want to get personal with potential coworkers. I had a medical problem during OCI, and I couldn't drink coffee, or anything with caffeine. One of the interviewers got really offended when I didn't drink a cup and demanded an explanation. I want to avoid that if possible this summer. I like Jacy's suggestion about making my coke look like a mixed drink. I was also thinking about ordering a drink and just holding it. Think anyone will notice?

You should talk to somebody at your school's academic services/student affairs.
I've never done an outline that's longer than 25 pages. I'm not saying that what you do is stupid, but it's different strokes for different folks. People have to figure out what they're comfortable with and stick with that. I don't outline at all for closed book exams; I use flashcards, do sample exams and E&E/CALI hypos. That doesn't mean that everybody should review like that, but there isn't one way that works for everybody. Most of your grade is how you write the exam, anyway. I think a lot of students spend too much time trying to understand the material and not enough time improving the way they write exams, or the way they write period. I'm declining the Pepsi challenge, but I will say that I've booked two classes and my outline was no longer than 25 pages for either. For one of those classes, not only did I not use my outline during the exam, my outline was only halfway done. The learning process for me is all about reviewing my notes, not outlining.
Just so you know, you're giving bad advice. If you have an open book test, why the hell would you get your outline down to 1 page? That's the most retarded "advice" I've heard on this board. (and you hear a lot of it here) The point of an open book test is to have access to things such as a detailed outline.
