LOL as opposed to Mr. Hoodrat, this is a child that deserves a pat on the back (watch the video):

Nice one A. I think the City Council should replace her with the more articulate 8th grader!

Hello,
So i was wondering.... is there anyone that will be attending John Marshall Law School in Chicago? or is there anyone who knows anything about the Chicago area? I am from MA and lived on the east coast most of my life. The idea of moving to Chicago does scare me because i keep hearing its cold. I am just apprehensive about the move and financing my education. Any insight? ???

Bombastic..you are from MA (Massachusetts) are you are scared of moving to Chicago because its cold? For real?

***my comment was before seeing Blk's response.***

Boombasctic:

I second Alci, don't get into too much debt. To answer  your question, just like buying a car or a house, you 'll get the best rate if you have excellent credit, most people with average credit use the grad plus loan. All my loans are from Sallie Mae at current market rate. As the prime rate drops, so its my interest rate. Good luck.

Really? I wish I knew that then.  I just copied it from the CDs @ the school's library.  The some one gave me an actual print out of the CDs so I could read while listening.  Really random some dude that was studying for the bar ran up to me and was like here-  gave me all this stuff.  I guess he was frustrated that he bought all this stuff but didn't really need it for the bar-  but I'm still wondering who the heck had time to actually print out the transcript of the PMBR Evidence CDs?  They even have the time on there..like Hearsay is 5:24 into the 4th CD.  If anybody wants lemme know.       

I think the PMBR CDS are the best for evidence.  You can probably buy a copy from Ebay for 20.00 or less.

If you can get ahold of the PMBR red book with the outline inside that would be great as well. 

Er, and what's the recommended supplement for evidence?  I loved glannon for civ pro, chirelstein for ks, etc.  Is there a go-to supplement for ev?

The PMBR CDs were great for Evidence.  PM me your email address.  I actually have a print out of it & a really good outline.

Cui bono please share the loot with me. My evidence exams is in four weeks, need all the help I can get.

Evidence was definitely one of my favorite classes in law school hands down.  It just puts things into perspective like "remember all that law we just taught you during 1L?....Well this is how you get it into court! (or keep it out for the other guy!)"

The E&E for Evidence is cool but is not quite the truth & the light like it was for Civ Pro.  Evidence is the first time I went to the audio tapes.  I think I still have them in mp3 if you want me to forward 'em over.


Sands, please forward the evidence mp3 my way too. Thanks in advance.

they should be paying for all these expenses.  If you haven't heard from recruiting, send them an email saying something like "I just wanted to check in to see if there is a preferred way to make my travel arrangements"---usually they'll connect you with lawyer's travel and you'll be set.  Good luck!

eta: fixed the spelling errors.  geesh, I clearly shouldn't try to give advice when in the middle of something else.  Let us know how it turns out Jontor.

One Step Ahead:
Worked exactly like you stated. Once again, thanks.

My dilemma right now is who pays for travel expenses incurred during a call-back interview? So far I have four call-back interviews, three in NY and one in LA (fyi, I'm in Boston). Should I ask them if they will cover my travel expenses. Please advise.

Yay! The Alli pills are easy to swallow. I'm going to buy some today! ;D

http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/all-about-alli-the-weight-loss-pill
"More than just a pill, the Alli program involves a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, regular walking and toning exercises, and behavioral changes."

I haven't read up on the efficacy of the Alli pills, but wouldn't bolded lead to weight loss without them?

EDIT: "If you take Alli and follow a sensible low-fat diet and exercise, you will lose 50% more weight than you would with diet and exercise alone. Instead of losing 10 pounds, a person who takes Alli will lose 15 pounds."


I heard you should buy diapers along with the Alli Pills

it could have--but I don't think 3k more would have lead to their bankruptcy.  they seem to be doing ok.  http://www.pittston.com/corporateinformation/history.html

I do agree,....was hoping that Buffalo creek will be tucked in somewhere in their history...no dice
