Current Law Students / The whole "forest for the trees" thing...
« on: September 11, 2008, 07:31:40 PM »
This is mainly geared to upper-level peeps, but if you are a "super 1L" who can already confidently (and of course ACCURATELY) answer, then please do....

I am understanding most things in most classes thus far (said with the caveat that I haven't gotten any assessment and won't until I either make or break it on exams).  What I worry about is putting the small pieces into the bigger picture.  Are there any suggestions.  Of course any blatant statements about what the larger picture is for each subject would be nice, too, if that is even possible to do.  ;)

Here are some ideas I have had to bring it together-
1) Of course outlining each course
2) Reading commercial outlines against my own to compare
3) Reading the professors' recommended supplements

Anything else?  Oh, and to be clear- is the "forest" just understanding the framework/outline of each subject, or are we talking more policy oriented ideas?

Thanks for the help.

Man, you're right on with that observation... Here's to being all grown up and cynical!  Wait, maybe cynical isn't the right word... what am I looking for here?!?!  Oh, yeah- broke(n).

I completely agree.  It is rape.  Worse still, most of us are forced to shut up and take it.  Does this sound like a great cause for SBA, or am I once again over-reacting?

Don't let this thread die... I would like to know if my T2 can hurdle me into world domination...

Sorry- I meant the 11th!!!  And btw, lendb5, i went to gsu for undergrad, too.  you're right about the admin... pretty half-aszed.  seems like the law school has it a little more together than the university, but they still rely on the university for financial aid, etc, so there's that! 

what is our "allowance" at the bookstore anyway? i seem to remember reading something like $750, but could be making that up...

Well...there it is ... my sched for Fall Semester

Looks like we have like four classes together... see above.

Lendb5, I will look for you in class, too.

And, to answer my own question- the bookstore is accepting the "credit" from financial aid beginning next Monday.

I got the pocket dictionary from amazon for like $15, too.  Yo, are you buying used books?  If not, then please tell me your secret to such low prices! I bought my tort book for $76 on but all others new are about the same as the bookstore.  Are you guys using the "credit" at the bookstore or out-of-pocket?  I have no funds for books and my Financial Aid hasn't been dispersed, so I don't know if I can use the "credit" yet anyway!!!


My schedule is:

MW: Civ Pro 9-10:15  Washington
    Property 1:15-2:30  Wiseman
TR: Contracts 10:30-11:45  Taylor
    Torts 1:15-2:30  Scott

RWA on Wed at 2:45 with Chiavaro and Legal Bib on Fri at 11:00 with Brannon.


Finally, I think casual is good for orientation, but like was said earlier, NOT TOO casual, 'cause we have lunch with faculty, etc.

Can't believe it's only a week away!!!  The nerves are gone, now I'm just really excited.  Especially about seeing all of the cool rolling bags and lunch boxes!   ;)
