Current Law Students / Re: contracts question
« on: December 07, 2006, 01:56:31 PM »
That contract isn't substantively unconscionable.  Procedurally, I don't see it either.  I say it isn't unconscionable.

....thank God I am finally done with Con Law!!! Worst. Class. Ever.

I have con law next semester, so I'll let you know, but i can't believe that anything is worse than Civil Procedure.

I studied like crazy for my first exam, totally knew the material cold, and still managed to not apply it well.  I'm pretty demoralized now as to how I'm going to do on my next exams where I don't know the material as well.  The stress is insane and I'm not even some trying for top grades - I really just want to do well enough that I don't get put on probation.

same here. i studied my ass off for the first exam. you get one shot and someone who studied a lot less can end up getting a higher grade because they were less nervous or simply having a better day....and this is how four months of hard work is evaluated....it stinks.

Well its not about who studied more or less, and it certainly isn't about who was having a better day.  Its about how well they understood the material,  which is likley the result of how well they studied.  Of course there's no use freaking out about it until you actually get your grades, but if you're disapointed in how you did, do yourself a favor and figure out how to learn the material better.  Different study aids, different study group, conferences with your profs - who knows, cause everybody is different.  But somethings will work better for you than others, so figure out what works.

Why not just buy a plain T-shirt and write "I am an unfunny geek" on it?  That should get the same message across and save you a few bucks too.

Current Law Students / Where can I find more torts mult choice questions?
« on: December 06, 2006, 09:25:21 AM »
I bought Siegals, at the suggestion of students that had this prof last year.  This has been helpful, but there are only 91 multiple choice questions and half of them aren't very useful since they test second semester concepts.  Anybody know of any other source of multiple choice questions?  Yes, I've checked google.

Thanks

Current Law Students / Re: Guaranteed "B" or Better?
« on: December 06, 2006, 09:22:46 AM »
This is so stupid.  Don't most schools have a B curve anyway?  So they promise you'll get an average grade or what?  They'll refund the money you gave them for their worthless materials?  This is as bad as those gambling hotlines that offer you a sure thing can't miss winner, or your money back.  Why not?  If you get lucky and win, they have your money and your confidence.  If you lose, they refund your money, but they've lost nothing.

Current Law Students / Re: Married and older students do better?
« on: September 29, 2006, 08:48:22 AM »
I think it just allows for a level of perspective that the typical straight-out-of-college type doesn't have.  If you're married and especially if you have kids, typically you don't care what your classmates think of you.  This isn't to say that you're not going to be friendly with them or anything like that, but you're certainly not constantly looking for acceptance or approval or a date.  I think the value of actually having a life is immeasurable.  It wouldn't surprise me if, on average, that results in higher grades.

Current Law Students / Re: caught for plagiarism at my school

On the other hand, you may be precluded from practicing law, but not gettting a J.D.. It's a useful degree, and you may never have to disclose any of this to a non-legal sector employer. Plus, if you have the degree you may be able to sit for the bar sometime way out in the future.


Best of luck to you.

This seems to make the most sense to me.  Id do some reasearch and see what kind of career you can forge with a JD.  If it looks even remotely promising to you, I'd stick it out.  I assume you've already paid for 1/3 of your legal education, so if you quit now, that money is wasted.  If you cough up the other 2/3, worst case scenario is you get some non-lawyer JD job, best case scenario is you're admitted to the bar.
