Bar Exam Preparation / Really good condensed outlines for the bar exam
« on: January 15, 2013, 06:48:40 AM »
Hey All,

Just thought I'd spread the word about some great attack outlines I found for the California Bar Exam at  Pretty much has everything you need to know in 2-3 pages for each subject.  Also, just picked up the bar codes cheat sheet.  It seems decent for structuring the essays, but still on the lookout for good resources for the PT's. If anyone knows of some, please let me know.  :) Thanks!

I just checked online and found out who my 1L Professors will be for this fall.  I have no idea who's good or bad.  If anyone has any info, your input is much appreciated!

Caruso - Contracts
Bone - Civil Procedure
Farnsworth - Torts
Ryckman - Property

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Best Laptop for Law School?

cool.....also, did all u people that got dells uninstall the norton security suite that comes with them???  if not, you need to!

Why is that?  I just got a Dell 600m, and I'm not sure what software needs to be deleted an why.

I went on the Student Link and it said I am registered in
LAW LA999 A1. Is A1 a section?  If so, you know any profs that are in that one?

Who are the best and worst 1L Professors? Do the same set of Prof's stick together in sections each year?


I have a question about the classroom facilities.  I was able to look in one or two classrooms when I visited, but I'm not sure if they were indications of how the rest would be.  Are they comfortable? Do they have outlets for plugging in notebook adaptors?  Also, how is the wireless network in the building?  Is it pretty reliable?   

Have you checked out the new gym facility?  I heard it is pretty much brand new and open to law students?  Just wondering how nice it really is.

I also have one more general question about bad is the weather??  I've heard the winters can get pretty awful, but how cold does it really get?  And how many months of decent weather do we have after school starts?  Just trying to figure out when I need to break out the thermal underwear :P

First, thanks for all the great info!  I'll be attending BU in the fall, and had a couple quick questions for you. Do you think it's necessary to prepare (i.e. take a course) before starting law school?  Do those that take a course have much of an advantage?  Also, what does your faculty advisor do?  I received the advisor form in the mail a little while ago.  Just wondering what their role is. 

And how is Packards Corner to live at?  My apartment is going to be in that area.  Thanks!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Texas v. BC v. BU ??

I chose BC over BU because by all accounts, BU is a super competitive large corporatate law training center, whereas BC is a smaller, more community-oriented school, which is what I'm into. BC has an international law program too, and a study abroad program with lots of european schools.

Well, this seems like quite an exaggeration.  According to statistics on both schools, BU and BC's enrollment are extremely close...798 for BC and 858 for BU.  At both schools, virtually the exact same percentage of grads choose the private sector, while BU has a larger percentage going into government than BC.  Just because a school may have a larger undergraduate program doesn't necessarily translate to a large law school. And out of all the BU students I have spoken with, not one has suggested it's hyper competitive at all.  In fact, I usually get quite the opposite response.  I think this has a lot to do with BU's B+ curve.

The reason I didn't choose BC was due to the feeling that it was geared more towards corporate law and that most of its grads stayed in MA.  BU seems to have a more varied academic program and seems to place better out of state.  I think too many people choose BC over BU due the hideous law building (and it is hideous!).  Let's not forget, the most valuable aspect of law school is the education you receive from the faculty.  And I believe BU's faculty has been ranked the best in the nation for the past five years or so...So they have that going for them...which is nice.

I know BU has an international law program.  You can actually specialize in International Law if you want.  I'm doing the joint Masters program in International Relations and plan on specializing in international law.  Between BC and BU, go with BU if you want to do international law.  BC really didn't have much to offer in that area.

I'm 85% sure I'll be at BU next year.  Definitely want at least one roomate so I can live in a nice place.  Just need to have my own room.  I'm a huge baseball and hockey fan and am very laid back...and funny too! I want to find a roomate(s) who have personalities and aren't too serious to joke around a bit. School will be intense enough.  I don't need my roomates stressing me out too. :P  So, if you're a sports fan with a cool personality and don't plan on partying all the time, let me know. Oh and a non-smoker is a must.
