I wouldn't include a cover sheet, but I would add in a glamour-shot style picture.

yes! Yes! YES!  That idea about raising my hand in the middle of somebody else's sentence is GOLD.  If I'm seated closely enough to the person I can sigh heavily and throw in a 'roll eyes' in with it.

xferlaw and strong - why are you giving me advice on things that I'm already good at when I'm asking for recommendations in areas where I need improvement?

I'm still trying to figure out why so many people are annoyed by roll bags.  I have one because I refuse to hurt my back; attempting to carry all of your law-school books on your back is quite stupid, if you ask me. 

Yes, I know that most law students have lockers, but if you work full time, you need to have all of your books at home, meaning you have to lug all of them to class every time you go.  Unfortunately, I don't have the "luxury" of being around the hallowed law-school halls all day long, where if I want to study a different subject, all I have to do is pay a visit to my locker.

You would've saved a lot of time by just saying "I use a roll bag, and I'll roll over your toes with them, so lick my gnards f*ckers!"

I've heard complaints about those roll bags.  Also my friend says it sucks to raise your hand a million times in class and use the word 'slippery slope' many times in the same class period.  So I've got both of these down.

How else can I go about being the most aggravating bastard in my class?  Thanks!

I say who gives a f**ck...if you're in law school and still worried what people superficially think about you then you need more self-confidence. And I'd like to see people call you dumb b/c they're probably the same ones w/ pink razors that they forget to turn off during class...

my only advice is make sure it is a color you LOVE--> you will be looking at it alot over the next three years.

HELL YEA!  *-^-%-$ everybody else!  If you want a pink laptop, ROCK that pink laptop! Who cares what snotty judgmental people in law school think?  Don't worry bout that til you're lookin for your first post law school job!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: U. Colorado or U. Denver? Help!!

So I posted in here last year before I knew where I was going.  I am at DU now and for the most part it's been a great experience.  The profs are extremely knowledgeable, the other students are very happy and vibrant and theres SO much to do extracurricular-wise.  I've heard it said that CU is better for straight academia and that DU is better for technical prep, writing, research etc., but I don't know if thats true or not.  I do know that our legal writing assignments have been TOUGH, and that i've learned a ton in that class.  Also I have to repeat that the students here are pretty serious about moot court competitions and spend a lot of time preparing for them.  I didn't participate this year but I think I will next year because the ones who participated seem to have gained a lot of knowledge.  This weekend theres a competition between CU & DU 1Ls, we'll see who wins that one.

I saw Barack Obama speak here this morning and tonight I'll see Bill Clinton speak here.  One day last semester I saw Mitt Romney and Sandra Day O'Connor speak on the same day.

I also know that the bar passage rates have been on the rise again recently if that's a concern, it isn't one for me though.  I'll pass the f-ing bar, gimme a break.

The people on this site will almost always tell you to go with the higher ranked school.  I know that CU is a lot higher ranked but Colorado is a weird place where more than half the lawyers in Denver went to DU (its a much bigger school).

If I have to say one bad thing about it, it's that sometimes there are VERY annoying technical problems, like the printers breaking on the weekends and nobody being around to fix them til Monday, things like that are f-ing aggravating but in the long run I think it works out.

any questions feel free to ask em.
