Widener U School of Law / Re: Anyone going to Widener DE fall 2005?

S- How did everybody do on his exam though? I did my reading for the class on monday and was completely lost! Do you recommended any specific aids? Thanks!

G-

Of the people I have spoken to, the highest I know anyone got was I think a B- and the lowest was an F. Of course there had to be higher grades in the class, I just dont personally know anyone that got one.

as for study aides, I would suggest Gilberts. You will probably be lost for a while. It does take time to understand things but dont worry. I would suggest if you dont understand what you read, then read it again. Eventually things should start to click. It seems hard but it does get better and easier, I promise.

Thanks!

You know... I'm still worried about tomorrow.  It seems weird going into a test just having to know a couple statutes and IRAC.  Is that really all I need to know?  Why TF have I been reading cases all week if they are not going to say, ok, suppose this legislation has been struck down and there is a return to common law priciples... do you think they would do that?

I think all they are going to give us is another hypo like what we had today. I'm hoping that they are just looking for that we listened to the lectures, read the cases and have attempted to write our answer according to IRAC. I heard you need a 5.5 out of 10 to pass.

Anybody heard anything or met: Perry (Civ Pro), Kristl (Property) or Turezyn (Torts)? I only met my legal methods prof so far, not sure what to expect from the others.

I know nothing about Perry. I do however know about Kristl as I had him for Property 1. His class is VERY boring and I can tell you this, expect to figure most things out yourself. I do not feel I learned anything in his class and this was the general consensus among most people I know that were in the class with me. We all went into the final wondering what was going on lol..speaking of finals... his exam was ridiculous and did not cover the points we spent the most on in class(like future interests which we spent like a month on and yet there was a couple MC questions and that was it) but was filled with things we spent like 2 seconds on and no one knew...(you know you have a problem when the guy who is Number 1 in your class flips the exam over to see if he is in the right class and I am not joking)I hate to scare new 1L's but better to be prepared than not. speaking of, be prepared for class! Same goes for Turezyn. be prepared! warning.. She is VERY LOUD...take some aspirin before each class LOL..also when she calls on you to brief a case she makes you stand up.. I only had her as a sub for a couple weeks while my prof was out sick and it was horrid. She left one of my classmates standing up for like 45 minutes or so...I dont envy you in the least but I will wish you good luck regardless...Try not to be too discouraged by what I am saying because these are my own personal experiences and those of people I know that had these profs also. Form your own opinion is the best I can say. Feel free to report back here at some point and let me know what you think.

I have met Prof. T. and sbe seemed great to me, I would have liked to have her for class.  I know Villanova students love her.  This is what I have heard on the rumor mill:

  1.  She's loud
  2.  She can be intimidating
  3.  She can make you stand the entire class and answer questions

I met her in the mall and she came up to me and introduced herself b/c I was wearing a Widener Law sweatshirt.  She went out of her way to try to help me with my decision to attend law school and namely widener.  For that reason, I thought, "what a nice person, I bet if you were struggling with something in class, she would try to clear it up for you."  Just my impression.

Good to know..thanks for the info!

I went to the bookstore today and they have no idea about using the seat deposit as bookstore credit. Another student (i think a 2L) said she thought it went directly towards tuition. So not sure how that works.

But I bought them anyway, $514 for the required ones. I didn't even look at the study guide stuff.  I'm in section B.


I'm not sure g, but I think it only gets applied as a bookstore credit if you were awarded a full scholarship, and paid the seat deposit anyway.  I just handed in my seat deposit and asked Dean Ayars if I needed the seat deposit as well and she told me no.  I really could be wrong.  I think it was twarga who they gave that info to, but she could have been misinformed by someone who didn't know what they were talking about.

Edit:  All of our info says it is applied to your tuition... that's why I assumed the above info.

OK, that makes more sense.

I have assignments for each class. There's no turning back now!!

$ 650 for books?! Craziness. Forget it I'm not going to school.

First... I hope that was a joke, but I didn't see any wink or anything.  Also, my head is not on straight... I'm still mourning the loss of my cat and my husband is home sick today (I don't know if you've ever had to live through a sick spouse, but it's not pretty), and I inadvertantly put the entire price I spent with all the extraneous stuff.  The actual price I spent on books was just under $409 and they told me my property book would be around $100.  So, I'm looking at $500 for books, and I spent $150 on binders and clothes.

I'm very sorry that I misinformed you, but these are the correct numbers now.

YK- That was a joke, through UG and grad school, my books were at the most 250 a semester. SO this is a shocker, but kinda expected anyway.
So sorry to hear about your cat, I hope your hubby feels better.
