Current Law Students / Re: C+ Grades...write-on law review
« on: August 03, 2007, 01:08:45 PM »
My grades were not stellar 1L (a crappy grade in a 5 credit course did me in), but I just found out I made law review.  I am glad  I made the effort for sure!

Not true.  I personally know someone who is only top 25%, no journal, no moot court, no mock trial at 30-40 ranked school who got a six figure biglaw job in a smaller market.  Granted, it's not NYC or Chicago or LA, but it pays 100,000 a year.

Generally what the above posters have said is correct.  However, some schools will make allowances for students who live further away and commute in.  I know that mine allowed those who had children or who live further than 10 miles away to request either "early start" or "late start" for their classes the first semester.  For the second semester, those same students could pick their schedules. (They could only choose one elective, but they got to pick between 3 alternative times for their other 3 classes)

I don't know a single full time 1L who wasn't at school 5 days a week.

I am working on it now. Cannot make any other comments or I will be $*%&# up by the editors.

Email them!  They may have outlines they use for class that they are willing to give you.  When my friend's laptop died, the profs were really cool about trying to help.  One even sent an email to the whole class asking people to help him.

Only you know the answer to this question.  If you have a good relationship with your parents or a sibling, I would talk to them as well.  (Your family usually knows you better than anyone.)

If you really hate school, and hate the profession too, you shouldn't continue.  However, if this is stress talking, maybe you should see a professional about counseling and stress managment

Current Law Students / Books to help with Brief Writing?
« on: March 11, 2007, 09:50:01 AM »
Hi there....the legal writing program at my school (like everyone else's) sucks.  I could really use some help with writing my trial level brief this semester.  Are there any good books out there on this?  I happen to have drawn a tough grader (again) and need to do well to make up for an average grade last semester.

LOL on the Harrier comment!
