Nashville School of Law / Re: Why I chose NSL
« on: September 23, 2004, 02:55:59 PM »
True, as long as I have been here, I don't plan on leaving anytime in the foreseeable future.  So it works for me!

I'm with lawgroupie.  Seems I never get my outlines started until crunch time a couple of weeks right before the exam!  I figure as long as I keep on top of the work every week, I am doing good!

Actually there are loans available when you go to NSL, just not through the school.  I read that there is a bank that NSL recommends that will loan you the money.  I made it through the first year, I am hoping for one of the scholarships to help me through the next three!

It depends.  SOme schools will make them start over, others will transfer some credits.  It depends on the school and how far along in the program the student is.

Current Law Students / Re: Best Study Aids?
« on: September 21, 2004, 04:53:07 PM »
The best study aids I have found are the tapes for sale on  I think they are all by Gilbert.  They have them for all the major courses.  I bought them for Torts and Contracts last year.  Loved them so much have now got them for Property, Civil Procedure, Remedies, and Evidence.  Haven't listened to all the new ones yet.  However I will say that the Torts helped me get an A in torts and I never would have figured out Statute of Frauds in contracts if not for the neumonics (I can't spell) on the Contracts tape.  They break the concepts down in to easy to remember concepts.  They are not normally case specific (except for MAJOR cases) nor are they state specific.  They are expensive ($40 to $60) per set, but worth it.

Don't worry about the case names.  There are very few cases you need to know by name (there are some, but few).  Yes, it sounds impressive in class to be able to say something like in the case Harry v Sally the plaintiff yada yada yada, but the important thing is to remember the law that the case developed.  The only cases I would try to remember by name would be those that are mentioned for you to know, but are not covered in class (hint, hint).

Yes, you get to complete evaluations at the end of each class.  They are required.  Your grade for the class will not be released until you fill out the evaluation.  The evaluation forms appear 2 to 3 weeks prior to the end of the class.  They are annonymous unless you want to put your name on them.  I don't think Intro to Law could be exciting no matter who taught it.  Davidson taught a shorter version last year and he was really hung up on history.  You should be sure to state your opinions in a poite way on the evaluation forms.

I live where my family is and I work where the work is.  they just aren't very close togehter.

It takes me 90 minutes to get to work each day.

Bless your heart.  Wish you could find something in N'ville or someplace between Nash and T'homa, at least that would cut your drive some.  Hang in there and use your commute time to your advantage.  I'll be glad to help if I can.
