if it makes you feel better, imagine if you had to spend part of your summer grading these damn things!  fun fun for me. 

But seriously, you all should be proud you participated and finished the writing competition.  If you make it, great.  If you dont, GREAT (more free time).

go mac...you won't regret it.  My PC has been a nightmare, and i regret making the switch back pretty much everyday.  My Imac from 2000 still works better than my current laptop.

Don't sweat it, it works fine with macs, just let the computer tech ppl work their "magic" and you should be OK.  Why are you worrying about this now, you should be more concerned with how you're going to pass contracts.   ;D

Is it just me or do nerdy people get irrate about the wierdest things?  I seriously suggest the original poster 'get a grip'.

I think that is a great point JD MSA.

But people, stop putting that d**mn Fooseball post up. It is simply illogical. He suspects a correlation between the suggestion of relaxing before a truly grueling endeavor and people who have messed up priorities and went straight from undegrad to law school? Interesting assumptions...that logic should serve you well in law school. Ladies and gentleman, the next Clarence Thomas!!!


What I actually said was that the ‘fun and relaxation’ bit just goes to show where certain individuals priorities are, namely undergrads who went straight to law school.  Meaning, their priorities are probably on ‘fun and relaxation’.  Is that messed up?  No, nor did I imply that.  Does that mean you shouldn’t have fun and relax?  NO, nor did I imply that.  Did I make that assumption out of the blue or illogically like east west insists? NO…What I did base that assumption on was students I went to undergrad with.  Some went to law school directly some waited a year, some two, others four years.  Guess who emphasized fun and relaxation before law school the most?  You guessed right, the students who went straight in.  Did the other students who waited say don’t relax or have fun?  Of course not, but they were not as staunch as the ‘straight-ins’ about fun and relaxation.  Is there some sort of correlation here?  I think so, but I never said it was an overwhelming one, nor did I say it was the definitive answer and I NEVER made a false assumption, just an educated guess  ;)

I thought the best briefs were as short as possible?

I am slogging through the Contracts E&E book right now.  I mean, its pretty dry material compared to torts, but i feel like the author could have put more umph into it (stylistically speaking).  Right now, I'm doing the PLS2 law school prep thingy and as far as i can tell im absorbing some of the important stuff (not as much as i need to though).  It can be rigorous if ur a full time employee, but it appears to pay off in the long run.

apparently Lipper knows what working as a lawyer in practice AND what working as a law student is like AND hes still in law school....
...

Lets think about this...law student...knows what its like to practice as a lawyer...Even if you DID work as a paralegal before law school(doubtful) and even if you did work as an associate or a clerk, i HIGHLY doubt that qualifies you to comment on the parallels of work load between law students and lawyers. 
I'd also like to point out that jomo never really makes the assumption that law school is like the practice of law.

I honestly would be wary about heeding the advice of posters who say 'relax and have a good time'.  It just goes to show where their priorities are.  My guess is that these individuals went straight from undergrad to law school, but i can only speculate.
