Don't forget Ruskiegirl!

Hi.  I am new to this discussion board and just wanted to thank everybody for such great advice.  This is really good stuff.  Law Girl, you and Neatgin from could pair up to write an excellent advice book for 1L's.  Excellent advice.  Good luck during finals!

I agree! Just stay here!  We need you and LawGirl here!   ;)

Awww, thanks, Kelly.

Sands - there's too much bull and drama there for me.  Please tell your boy HBCU to keep me out of y'all's *&^% over there.

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

Current Law Students / Has anyone used Mavis Beacon typing software?

A while back, someone recommended that learning to type faster would be the best thing to learn to do during your summer.

I've heard quite a bit about this program called Mavis Beacon. Has anyone else used it too?

Is this the only thing you would advise I get? Any other learning to type software programs out there?

And what version/edition do you recommend?

Hi Ruskie,
I haven't seen you here in a while.!

Hi, everyone!  I am an udergraduate planning to apply to law schools soon, and I wanted to ask the opinions of some seasoned veterans about what social life is like in law school (if there is any?).  Is it hard to make friends?  Does the competitiveness of law school make people not very friendly?  Do law students usually hang out only with other law students - have their own parties, events - or is there intermingling with other graduates and/or undergraduates at the school?  Is there a lot of gossip, cliques?  What do law students do for fun/rest, if they are not studying?  Feel free to share anything you think might be interesting: anecdotes, comments, comparisons with undergraduate life - I am very interested.

I realize that experiences of people will vary greatly from one law school to another, but it's still interesting to hear what people's experiences out there are.  It would be interesting to know, what school you're attending, but you don't have to say, if you don't want to.  But do mention if you're at a big, medium or small class-size/school.

Thanks a lot to everyone, who replies!

Most of this will depend on the school you choose to attend.  There is a variety of social and academic environments.  Some schools will inevitably require more studying than others -- think schools with C grading curves and/or high attrition rates.

As Noelle has aptly pointed out, many law students do lie about how much they study.  I think, however, that this is unintentional, because when you study a great deal, the process seems to take up all the spare time you have.  Six hours a day may seem like a lot to someone who breezed through undergrad without ever cracking open a book.

The problem with having a social life in law school is the incessant guilt you feel every minute that you are out having a good time instead of studying.  That really gets to me.  I haven't been drunk since last Halloween. :'(

It's not just this thread. She can answer (in detail) just about anything you want to know.

Yeah, I read her advice on how to be successful in law school.  Its very helpful and constructive.
