Current Law Students / Re: NSL: Chronicles of a TTT

I wonder why he's so unhappy then.  He/she seems to have what they want, but he/she is still very unhappy.

TTT is short for third tier toilet and is a favorite expression of some who like to trash everything and everyone.

Cooley is ranked very close to the bottom of the US News and World Reports ranking of law schools. 

I don't think there are even as many non-ABA schools as there are ABA schools.  Non-ABA schools are those schools that have never requested ABA approval or requested and did not receive approval. 

Non-ABA schools provide an alternative for those who could not get into an ABA school and those for whom ABA schools will not work because of time or money or other constraints.

Non-ABA schools usually allow you to sit for the bar in that state and can be a good choice for many.  Like me!   ;)

I wonder how pathetic life would have to be before any of this would be remotely funny.

Planet Law School is extremely negative and presents a story of deception on the part of law schools and law professors.    A large part of the book is devoted to telling you why you should be reading the book.

Some people swear by it.  I found it useless for me, but I do not go to a typical law school.

The main benefit people seem to get is the list of 'primers' in the law.  PLS suggests that law school will not teach you the law and you should learn the black letter law by reading a series of suggested books over a three month period.

There are a number of longer discussions of PLS on the pre-law side of this site.

anyone here read planet law school? Suggestions, comments?

I read a couple of books about law school, but no serious reading needed.  Try Law School Confidential and the like.

It all depends on the school, the prof and so on.

You'll end up rereading it anyway.

Keep in mind what works well will vary by person. 


You seriously don't think reading through one of the courses before class starts would get a good jump on things?

Are the tests based more on the book or the in-class notes?

After a few months of law school, I am convinced PLS missed the mark, at least for my school.

That looks similar to the curves I've seen at our school.  Torts prof says he doesn't curve the grade.
