I'm almost glad I nearly flunked the first one so that the forced curve brought me WAAAY up.
If I had gone down from a good grade with no comments I don't think I could've remained calm......
Have a classmate who went from an 88 to a 74 with NO EXPLANATION>
Who the heck is putting down that they learned a few things except how not to be a teacher? I can't believe she compared that to not seeing your graded tests. She is a terrible teacher. You don't treat papers the same way you treat tests. This is unconscionable. Oh, the evaluation. Sweet revenge for the masses!

Can you say "snowball's chance in hell?"
Perhaps if they do a scholarship fund for folks who pledge to do this....can you imagine paying back those loans on a public defender job. NO WAY!
New VU law dean wants students to chase ideals
By MICHAEL CASS
Law students could have more incentive to enter their profession's least lucrative jobs after a prominent legal scholar takes charge at Vanderbilt University Law School later this year.
Edward Rubin, a University of Pennsylvania law professor, has been named dean of the Vanderbilt school, the Nashville university will announce today.

I skipped out to go for some alcoholic beverages....SPILL (on the listserv if you prefer)!!!
But please, do share!
Now wasn't last night's class interesting. I thought there might be a full blown rebellion at some point.

wow, did not know that one.
So far most of my study friends have done well on Torts.....

good advice, kind of a compromise.
And JJ, if our conversations are anything like your briefs, they are over-analyzed!
As far as canned briefs, I find it relieving to just have them available in case I need them in a time crunch situation. It's better to use those than to not brief at all I think. I bought the High Court Case Summaries for Contracts and Torts. Last semester when I was trying to save time so I could outline I would read the case in the casebook, marking it up as I would if I were going to do the brief myself, then read the canned brief. I then retyped the canned brief and added in anything else I thought was important that was left out of the canned brief. Since the Torts cases in the casebook weren't very long I mainly bought the High Court Case Summary to help me add all the cases to my outline. Each brief contains a short fact statement and rule statement, which I could quickly put in my outline.

Said it before and I'll say it again, I was not cursing a student. Merely pointing out his condemnation of me which has now (randomly) turned to himself. It is the random grade generator. I do not begrudge anyone for making a better grade. I begrude the grading methods.
2 tears in a bucket motherf*ck it.
BTW, how are you doing?
jeese, talk about having some issues. i see the boards haven't changed in my brief absence. sorry dicta, but jslick has you beat on the rage issue(s). if you have to curse someone for making a better grade, maybe law school isn't for you. better yet, if you have trouble writing, why don't you seek some help. dropping the 'A'-bomb and using grade school putdowns ain't gonna get ya' anywhere. you need to bucket-up brother.

agree 100%. I am treated as a villain by my children if I take an hour to brief one contracts case!
aren't you glad it is the exception rather than reality!
Emergency mode. The weekend is almost over and I've done the smallest fraction of my work. Never mind trying to memorize tort elements. We had the grandkids (three: 8, 6 and four months). Now I remember why I let my kids grow up. I never got any sleep. It was my son's second anniversary so my wife volunteered to watch the kids so son and his wife can go to Nashville to celebrate. I hope they had a good time. I did, but I just misplaced about 8 hours sleep in two nights.
And if your spouse tells you that s/he will watch the grandkids so you can study, don't believe it. Oh, they mean it when they say it, but the grandkids didn't sign on to that contract. In fact, they think it's a tort if their grandparent studies instead of playing with them.
I've decide that the next time I go to law school, it will be when all the children have graduated from college. All of them, including the grandchildren.
