When I was in 5th grade we used it in computer class.  It was great!  I haven't stopped typing since :)

Hey everyone, thanks for all of your advice!!!  Keep reading to find out what I did!!!

To answer a few questions...
1. I was the only one to receive her brief since we were against each other in the oral argument.

2. I've asked around and our professor will surely notice...2Ls say that he is very anal about margins of all things.

3. During the oral argument when the guest judges asked her about how certain cases that she mentioned related to her argument, she gave incorrect facts and details!  This person is a d**mn fraud and my professor saw her in action!!!  My professor knows the details of all of the key cases used for our issues (he asked VERY detailed questions during the practice round).

4. I honestly do feel that this person intentionally set her margins incorrectly b/c there is NO way that she could have fit so much info in 20 pages, plus, there was so much text on the page that she had to manually TYPE the page numbers onto the pages. 

To make a long story short, it is all over now and I did not say anything to her or the professor.

I'm doing the writing competition, only b/c my school as a "writing requirment" for graduation.  I can either (a) Write on a journal (b) Do moot court or (c) Take a ridiculous class that has a 30-35 page paper.

I might as well go out for a journal b/c I heard that when you interview, they only ask about your note and they don't even question your writing abilities...hey, s/he is on a journal...must be a great writer!  I really don't want to do it, but based on my other options, a law review or a journal will be more beneficial.

If it will affect your grade in anyway, I would send an anonymous email to the prof.

You think so?  You don't think that it will be seen as tattling and being petty?  You are probably right b/c I bet if she or her friends had dirt on me, they would notify administration.

For our Appellate Briefs, we are required to have 1 inch margins on all sides.  However, when opposing counsel gave me her brief, her bottom margin was clearly set at 1/2 inch or less!  What does that mean?  It means that she could get more than 20 pages of information into her brief!!!  What does that mean?  That means that her brief is more detailed and developed than anyone else in the class, which means that she might get a better grade!

Furthermore, I could tell that she manually typed the page numbers.  This is not fair and pisses me off. 

I know that the professor will read her brief, but will he notice that she did not comply with the rules???

What a female dog!!!

I wasn't in the program, but I two 1Ls at my school were.  How did they like it?  Did it help them prepare?

1 guy did so poorly last semester that he dropped out.  The young lady did so poorly that she has to go to a mandatory CLEO session this week.  I guess it helps the students that didn't do to well.

Hey, I'm trying to hear about experiences from CLEO summer institute alumni.  How did it help prepare you for law school?

True story...a guy from my school graduated 3 years ago.  He said that at the end of his first year he had a 2.5.  He graduated and he only made 48K at his first job out of law school.  He didn't tell us exactly how much he makes now, but he said that it is what a 7th year associate at a big firm would make.  In Chicago, that's about 250-300K.

Bottomline, your future is in your hands.  If I had based my success on my grades in the past, I never would have made it to law school.

Just make sure you dominate in other areas.  Moot Court, one of the journals, SBA, etc.
