Tag. Can you elaborate on the writing of exams (ie what makes one good)?

I've worked a few years out of college. Hardly gives me a sense of entitlement to say I think I know what I'm doing compared to those straight out of school. 

But one thing that got me into law was I got along well with lawyers in general.  These were ppl who, *generally* liked to think about things openly / admit they weren't always right / took interest in details of how things worked. 

At the one-month point in my first year, I don't see many of these characteristics in classmates (perhaps in a few of them). Did I have an unrealistic idea of lawyers' personalities, or is it just that as students we all haven't budded yet? At my school, a majority of students are straight out of school...

Regardless, *some* of these people are EXTREMELY ARROGANT and SNOTTY. I mean, its just unreal, the 'tudes of some of these dudes (and girls for that matter).  It's like I have to do a double take in given situations b/c there's no way a person who's managed to negotiate themselves through life would turn up their nose at another person like that... [except in law school].

Sorry, bad day and lots of time studying (perhaps unproductively) by self... but god does anyone else see the same problems? I wish the BAR had some kind of "no jerk" policy --- maybe I'm hoping for WAY too much.

I'm so glad I'm not alone...I just can't believe how gossipy they are. I don't care what so-and-so did last weekend or how they said something stupid in class 3 weeks ago. It's like nothing is forgivable. I've never been in school during the day (always working and did night classes) until now and this has been a HUGE adjustment. I just want to know that my professional life will not be this way...

Try this:

1. Log onto myUM (if you have not done this yet, you'll have set up a password, etc but it's very straightforward)

2. On the top row of tabs, click on Student, then Academic from the drop-down menu

3.Under Online Resources on the right, click on Blackboard

4. To log into Blackboard, your username is your UMiami e-mail alias (found on the myUM homescreen when you log in) and you need to choose a password

5. INSTEAD of going to the "courses" tab, click the little pencil at the top of the My Current Courses box.

But I thought it was funny  :P

You having a good sense of humor about this is ruining it for me.  Where's the feminazi contingent today?

I'm not good enough for you?

I guess you're the first non-fat/ugly girl to post, eh OP?

EDIT: I am delusional, just not sure for the reason you stated.

In all fairness though, maybe I am picking on the wrong person. You do seem to have more credibility than Wiimie.
