General Board / Re: Best software for note taking and/or outlining
« on: July 07, 2004, 12:44:28 PM »
I found that MS Word worked great for me. I used StoreLaw my first semester, but I noticed it wasn't very user-friendly. Plus, when I went to create my outlines it was a pain getting everything into a usable outline format. Instead, I just placed everything into Word anyway (so I spent a lot of time cutting and pasting). My second semester I just took notes right into Word, so my outlines were updated daily. It just needed a little tweaking at the end, which meant more time to study. The new StoreLaw 3.0 just came out so maybe it is better, but I think I am sticking with Word. Hope this helps.

My understanding from speaking with other transfer students is that you do lose your class rank when you transfer.  I think this is because you cannot be "fit" into the current class (due to different grading norms, etc.) As far as after your second year, I believe most law schools place you in a percentile range (not really a rank). This helps employers when selecting you for interviews.  At least this is my understanding...

I have just finished my first year at a 4th-Tier school, and did well. I have been accepted to law review, but I am considering transferring to a lower 1st-Tier school.  They are more than willing to accept me now, even though they waitlisted me last year. My problem is that if I leave my current school, I lose law review and my rank.  If I go to the "better" school I have only a chance to make law review after my second year.  What is more important: the school rep., or law review?  Any help would be great.
