Current Law Students / Outline Recommendations?

Does anyone have any recommendations for outlines for Contracts, Civ Pro, and Torts?

I appreciate any and all feedback.  Thanks.

That's interesting.  The professor I have for Torts during Advance Week is not the same professor I will have for the semester, and yet I have a reading assigned.  I signed up for a few optional events as well, I'll just wait to see which ones I actually get!

The schedule came in a big envelope separate from the tuition bill.  It had two readings, one for the seminar, and one for your small section (mine happens to be Torts).  It also came with a book that we pay for in our tuition bill, that I assume we have to read before school begins, purely for our own knowledge.

I'm sure you'll get it soon!

Has anyone else received the latest mailing that includes the schedule for Advance Week as well as the semester?

I am Section B overall, small section B3, and Legal Writing Section B7. 

Does anyone else have a different professor for Torts (or whatever small section you have) for the 1st class during Advance Week than they do for the rest of the semester?

I guess any other observations or comments are welcome :)  Glad to finally have my schedule!

I went with the 600m as well.  I will be receiving it in a week or two, as soon as I do, I'll let you know what I think :)

Good luck finding the best price, like I said it fluctuates to much, you never know if you are getting the best deal!  I purchased mine for $1234.95 but that only has 256k memory because my dad has another memory card that he will add for me and it includes the price of a laptop carrying backpack!

I feel like I got a great deal even though had I purchased it today it would be $41 less...I think I'm going to have to get over the extra 41 bucks I paid...LOL

If you have any questions about it though, don't hesitate to ask me...I literally have spent since May researching laptops and especially prices!!

I totally agree with you.  I personally have to figure out my transportation arrangement, which includes, parking and tickets.  I need to know simple things like am I going Mon-Thurs or Mon-Fri, etc.  It is very inconvenient.  I don't know if you were to call back if they would give you a different answer, but all I really want is the information...ASAP!!!

Just spoke to Admissons..the earliest we should expect the schedules to be mailed out is the end of this week, but most likely it will be at the end of July!!!

I usually get the mailings the day after they mail it (because I live in New Jersey).  Since I didn't receive anything Friday or Saturday, I am assuming they have not mailed anything out yet.  So if they send it out today, I'm hoping to receive it tomorrow.  I really need to know my schedule ASAP so I can arrange transportation for myself :(

I was going to get an IBM originally...but even with my discount they are too expensive.  I only need the laptop for school, meaning I only need to be able to use the internet and word processing.  So i opted for a Dell because they are the cheapest (even if not the best quality).  I didnt choose Apple for two reasons:  1) I'm much more comfortable with IBM compatible computers and 2) I was worried that the school might use programs and give exams for IBM compatible comps only.

In any case if you end up with a Dell i suggest the following:

I went to

They basically tell you how to get the best deal from dell.  It takes you to Dell's own site and you just customize the laptop to your specifications and then use whatever coupons are available at the time.  I bought mine on Friday and used a coupon for $100 off.  Today that same exact computer came with a coupon for 10% basically I paid $41 more on Friday than I would have today had I bought it.

It really depends on when you catch the deal, but edealinfo puts together the best deals...let's you know which coupons are valid for the particular deal!!!

Good luck!!!
