General Board / Re: Outlining
« on: November 07, 2005, 09:10:30 AM »
I like to work on my outline partly with others in my section.  The largest reason is to make sure I am not missing anything or wording something incorrectly.

In my study group, we each outline up to a certain point and then exchange.  That way no one is not doing the work and all we are really doing is making sure our work is complete.

Advantage: maybe someone has a better way to state the information that you can borrow.

Disadvantage: maybe all of you are wrong...lol

look at the plain words and where they come in sequence to the conveyance

"but if" usually signals that it is a condition subsequent

Is there some condition that the remainderman has to meet before the interest becomes vested?  Yes, then that is precedent.

Is there some condition they have to meet prior to becoming vested and is there some condition where they lose the interest if they breach it?

Yes, then you have the contingent with the condition subsequent.

Why don't law students ever female dog about the people who don't take it seriously and make fun of the ones who want to learn. Why is that? Law students seem to be the people who never outgrew middle school.

Because they are below me in the curve which is a good thing...lol.

I'm here as well.  I try to get as much accomplished now so I can watch some football in a little bit.

From my contracts professor:

"Before I take a case, I perform 'The Grandmother Test.'  I tell my Grandmother about the case, and judging from her reaction, I can tell whether or not I'm on the right side of the situation."  ((brief pause))

"But who knows.  Grandma might be a Commie."

I love your avatar.......that looks exactly like what my property class feels like.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: CALI

Would you recommend them over the E&E's or are the E&E's ranked higher in priority?


CALI is a nice supplement, but I wouldn't trade them for the E&E's.  CALI doesn't have every single topic.  They are a nice way to quickly review a subject.  However, writing out the explanations to the examples is invaluable to me.

"The earth is round....or at least we think it is"

"There is no such thing as property"

"Law school is not about the law per se"

"I think I know what you mean, and if it makes sense, then you are right"

"You can disregard some of my comments"

Stetson / Re: Anyone starting Stetson in the Spring?
« on: September 30, 2005, 02:22:33 PM »
A friend of mine here lives in N.Tampa and is hating the drive.  She is moving next week a bit closer, but still in Tampa.  Somewhere near Gandy (I am not from here).  I know it is right across the bridge. She thinks that will be perfect for her since most of her friends,etc. are in Tampa.  I live about 3 miles from campus right in St. Pete. which is about 10min drive.  So it is close enough for me.  I am there pretty much all day.  If you are one of those who needs the library at night, then closer would probably be better.  The houses are for students, but they have a waiting list.  Stetson also has dorms.  I don't know how they are, but I haven't heard anything bad about them yet.

Congrats on your acceptance, I remember reading your posts on the other side of LSD.

Fight with the boyfriend? Snap at me.
Bad day at school? Snap at me.
Sometimes in the mornings I say: "Good morning" and I might as well have spoken to the wall, since I get absolutely no reply.
I've stopped saying "hello" and "how are you?" since she has the uncanny ability of making people feel invisible.


Considering that she's ALWAYS fighting with her boyfriend and ALWAYS having a bad day at school, let's just say I live with a person who's miserable 24/7 who you better not bump into in the hallway; otherwise she'll bite your head off.

I guess things could be worse; but going to law school is stressful enough w/o having to live with a such a moody person.  ::)


This sounds exactly like my ex-wife.....lmao.

General Board / Re: Help! How Do You Address Your Law Professor In Email?
« on: September 14, 2005, 08:41:34 PM »
I usually go with "Dude." It's short, succinct, and to the point.

That is reserved for "The Dude"....his dudeness....from the Big Lebowski.

For the OP:

Professor X,

I would like to ask you about A, B, C.

Thanks,

Student Y
