It is absolutely NOT anal -- it's smart.  You are right, as first year students, we have very little time to prepare our application materials during the semester, so it makes sense to get a head start.  At the very least, research some firms and/or organizations you are interested in and write individualized cover letters to the organizations that interest you most.  Then write a general (non-org specific) letter and save that so you can add mail merge info to it later in the semester.  Essentially, you will have about 15-20 letters that are individualized and then you will spam every other organization with the general letter in your mail merge.

Dec. 1 is not a school-specific date.  It comes from one of the regulatory bodies, but I am not sure which one.  (ABA, maybe?)  At most schools, applying before that date is an honor code violation, so don't take your chances.  The rationale for this date is to give the 2 and 3L's ultimate priority in the job application process.

Current Law Students / Re: Are most exams open book?
« on: May 04, 2005, 01:08:17 PM »
All of my in-class and take homes so far have been open book.  My professors are basically of the opinion that in real life, you always have access to resources to help you solve a problem and you should learn how to use them.  My only closed-book exam is this semester's Property exam, which is only partially closed-book.  There's basically a multiple choice and short answer section that's closed book and the essay portion of the exam is open book.

In Russia she would be considered jewish not russian.

I identified myself as Jewish, but since the Jewish ethnicity is passed through the mother, I was identified as Russian by everyone else.  It says "Russian" on my birth certificate.

Ruskie,

Are you 100% Russian?

Consider marrying a southern guy?!

I've never considered marrying anyone else! ;) :D :-*
Well, that depends on how you look at it.  My parents are both Russian-speaking and Russian-born, however, my maternal grandma is Mongolian, my maternal grandpa is German, my paternal grandma is Belorussian-Jewish and my paternal grandpa is Russian.

Why did you change your picture?



Joe and Kelly,

I love you too, but this kind of thread will only draw flames and xoxo trolls.  Let's stay focused on the on-topic posts. ;)

I like to change them periodically, because I get tired of looking at the same ones.

Current Law Students / Re: Best Commercial Outlines
« on: May 01, 2005, 06:48:43 PM »
Okay, I know that the advice is to write your own outline, but I want to supplement my studies with a commercial outline.

So, what are the best ones?

It really depends on the class.  There's no single series of outlines that will be the "best" for every course you take.  Do a search for previous threads on this topic to find out which ones work for the subjects you are taking.

Current Law Students / Re: Does anyone use a digital voice recorder?
« on: April 28, 2005, 09:17:15 PM »
A few folks in my classes use their iPods to record lectures.  If you have the discipline to actually re-listen to them, I can't see how it could be a bad idea.
