With 3 posts to your name, you shouldn't be calling anybody anything.

We now have confirmation.  She is a psycho.

Okay, thanks!

I'll PM you with answers to your questions. Also, email me if you have any other questions.


What was your LSAT? GPA?  What did you write your write your personal essay on?, etc.?

What do you want to know?

Cool, this is one of the schools I'm looking at.  Do you have any advice?

University of Pennsylvania.



Raise your hand a lot??!!! Hahaha.  Hilarious.

Where do you go to law school Ivy Man?

No need to worry Kelly.  You'll have plenty of practice once you start law school.  Just raise your hand a lot ;) and participate in moot court.

I agree that I don't want to take any medication for it.  I don't believe in that.  I hope it's one of those things that I will totally get over (and get better at) once I start law school.

Hey Kelly,

You might have specific social anxiety disorder, where your body physiologically reacts to certain stimuli by drastically increasing your heart rate and shallowing your breath, kind of like a panic attack. Probably in circumstances where you have to speak up with a formal expectation to do so and in formal settings like classrooms.

I know I have had a moderate case of this since I can remember, but I didn't talk to a psychiatrist until only two weeks ago. And aside from prescribing drugs, which I didn't want, the key to relax this condition, is like other people said by desensitizing the person through progressive exposure to it. It's just like another phobia I guess...

Raise my hand a lot?  Lol.  Nice.

Thanks!
In a way, I'm looking forward to it but in another way- I'm very nervous and I have doubts.

If hope this helps...

I was a strategic communication major in undergrad. The reason I chose this major was to confront one of my greatest fears -Public Speaking. I knew there were going to be many speeches, some short-5min. and others pretty long-30min. Before I chose the major, I knew I wanted to go to law school. I knew that gpa was important and convinced myself that if I didnt become a good public speaker to get the grades, I wouldnt even get into law school. Most people called me crazy, because you are supposed to pick a major you enjoy. I realized that without PS, that I probably wasnt going to do well in law school, or at least be comfortable.

As it turned out, I became a much better speaker but I never got over being nervous and sometimes a little scared. I ended up graduating at the top of my class and making the grades to get into law school. The whole point I'm trying to convey to you, is that being afraid and being nervous is ok and it may even work to your advantage. I have faith that you will become that litigator. I'm not sure if you've started or are about to start, but always remember that law school is a psychological boot camp, and only the strong will survive. You must face your fears!

Sincerely

I'll try One Note's free trial and see how I like it.  What I like about it so far is that it has a recording feature along w/keeping a order of notes, outlines and such.

The recording feature is what fascinates me.

So u don't think I should bother w/Microsoft One Note?  I really like it because of its recording feature.


We use Wordperfect at the office to do merge documents with Time Matters and TIme Slips which a lot of legal offices use - the experience working with it in school will be positive for the "real world".  ALso, there is a Legal Toolbar on wordperfect which sets up an outline and other features which I have yet to use. 

HTH

I like onenote, but it is your choice.  I read on this thread osmeone really like goBinder, but I hated it.  You should just play around with them and see what you like.

I've heard a lot of positve things about Microsoft OneNote.

Most people stick with MS Word for both note taking and outlining... But there are some specific programs for that.

Does anyone use one of them, or did anyone try to? Which one? Is it good or useless?
And what about Microsoft's OneNote software?
