Yeah, the number and bullets facility in storelaw is limited.  The spell checking doesn't seem very good either.  I've told it several times to add "v." to the dictionary, but it doesn't seem to get the message.

R-girl, how's it going at school?
I'm loving it.  It's a lot of work, but it's work I enjoy so it doesn't seem like I have to put as much effort into it as I would if I was forcing myself to read and study something that didn't interest me at all.

The people at my school are great -- classmates and profs, so it makes the adjustment very easy.  Right now I am just focusing on getting a routine going and on getting involved with a few of the clinics/groups that are in line with my specific interests in the profession.

Socratic Method / Re: Does your school GRADE you on class performance?

My crim law professor said that about 10 per cent of our grade will be based on class participation.  The good news is that he tells us what days we are to be "on call," that way we have the opportunity to prepare extra dilligently for that class period.  Overall, I think it's a good thing.  If you do your reading, the questions aren't going to be hard.  If you always do your reading and always answer the questions, you will have a nice boost when your written exam comes around.

I am using StoreLaw and I find it really helpful.  I like being bale to organize all my notes under different tabs.  My only gripe is that the outlining features in StoreLaw (bullet or numbers) seem to be limited.  If you use bullets, it will use the same style bullet for topics and subtopics.  If you use the number/roman numeral style it doesn't seem to recognize a sbutopic and switch numbers when you go to the next tier.  Of course, if you really must be as picky as I am, this problem is easily fixed by typing your notes in Word and pasting them into StoreLaw.

I haven't tried this juris program, but, from what I get from their site, it seems to be more limited in features.
