Current Law Students / Re: Studying 1 year Ahead
« on: July 10, 2006, 03:17:42 PM »
Spend 0L summer doing everything that you will not be doing when you are a 1L. 

Some suggestions:
-Get in shape/start a workout plan
-Talk to friends and family
-Play sports
-Watch movies
-Go on vacation
-And whatever else you like to do

My advice is donít plan on it. I hate to be a downer but in order to transfer to a T14, you will need to be in the top 10% of your class, which by definition means that you are in the minority. There is no way to tell at the outset whether you have what it takes to be in the top 10% since it is relative to how well your other classmates perform. Think of it this way, you have a 10% chance of being successful enough after your first year to transfer to a T14. Ten percent!! That certainly isnít a number that inspire confidence. While it obviously isnít impossible, it isnít a bet that I would take.

Even if OP makes top 10% at SCU he may not be able to transfer to a T14, especially not Boalt they want top 5 people.

The test archive is usually available on-line. IMHO, you should only look at them/take them a few days before the final for that class.

Job Search / Re: most coveted 1L summer jobs?

Order of prestige

1) BIGLAW firm job.

2) Externing for a judge

3) Researching with a professor

4) Government/non-profit

For the 0L's reading this.

It's different strokes for different folks.  So put off buying the supplements for the first two weeks of school.

Some professors spoon feed the black letter law and EE would be more useful.

Other professors hide the law so Emmanuels or an outline type supp would be more helpful.

Few professors don't know how to teach, so purchase both.

Good luck!

I don't see the logic of the argument. The brick and mortar law students seem very adament that students should attend their traditional schools or not at all, then in the next breath say that the field of law is really overcrowed and too competitive...better yet..don't bother.

Some of those brick and mortar law school grads who can't find decent jobs are likely to start their own online law schools for the money to pay their student loans. Unfortunately, if while in law school the students are busy dissing the online schools, it might be alittle difficult to later find any students willing to study online courses.

I don't see the logic in this post, maybe my LSAT is too high

Current Law Students / Re: Abortion
« on: March 14, 2006, 05:51:05 PM »
There is a vast difference between an abortion performed at 23 weeks and one performed at 10 weeks. 

Why do "pro-lifers" put all their energy into outlawing abortions?  It seems there energy would be better spent actually trying to reduce the number of abortions.  If abortions are outlawed the rich will get them performed by Daddy's golfing buddy, and the poor will go see some guy with a coat hanger.

And if all of a sudden abortion was outlawed (highly unlikely) would all the "pro-lifers" be in favor of increasing social assistance to provide for all the new children?  Or is it "we care about you as long as your are in the womb but after that you're fuct"

Comparing Yale to a DL law school, that's funny.
