Studying and Exam Taking / I might fail out...HELP!!
« on: January 06, 2006, 04:27:26 PM »
At my law school, the cut off is a 70 average which is considered a D. During the fall semester, I was having "too much fun" being away from home and in a different state. My days were filled with car rides to the beach and malls. I figured since I breezed through a T1 undergrade with three major and honors, law school would be easy. Well, while the material is easy (except for future interests in Property :-)), the testing is brutal (which im sure you can all relate to). The last three weeks, I pulled myself together and thought i understood what i needed for my exams. I took the exams and the grades are still pending. however, in the interim i received my LRW paper back (which is worth 20% of my final grade) and it was a 70!! I did wait until the last few days to do the paper and just wanted to get it over with. I feel like a failure and a loser. My other three grades were 90, 86, and 84. I was shocked to get a D. My dreams of being a sucessful criminal attorney have been replaced with thoughts of a menial job. I  have obviously underestimated the rigor of LS. I feel like SH$T and have no motivation to return back to school. Additionally, i am TERRIFIED to get the rest of my grades. ANTWAN offered some very good advice in a previous post.  Im looking for some advice or encouragement. THIS SUCKS!!!!

"If you judge someone for that as being "pathetic and desperate" then you are truly pathetic and desparate yourself, finding whatever reason possible to make yourself feel superior to others."

so, the pot is calling the kettle black! why such the virulent attack??? didnt you learn how to interact with people on the playground in kindergarten? you have some deep rooted issues, which have surfaced in numerous posts. everything you say is insulting. stick to the topic.

hand them out like candy??? my scenario of being at a swanky atty party makes it very clear that its not the QUANTITY of cards handed out, but the rude and IMPERSONAL connotation it gives. if someone im interested in hands me a napkin or scrap of paper with their info on it i hang on to it and then transcribe it in to my cell phone or personal planner. if someone handed my their personal business card, i would think they are pathetic and desperate. do you hand out business cards to prospective paramours? lets imagine meeting someone of romantic interest in a public place. would you hand our your business card with all your personal attributes that you would make a good romantic partner? its very contrived and impersonal.

i agree with ajude. my law school offers them and they are tacky. they make you appear to be a "networking whore". picture are at a fancy party with numerous attys. you strike up a very stimulating and meaningful conversation with one of them. at the conclusion of the exchange, he/she asks if they can have your email/phone number, so you can talk again sometime. well...."have no fear...i have a business card on my person for times like this!!". it makes you look like you engage in conversations with people, in order to use them for any profesional benefits they can offer you. its like constantly carrying around condoms in your pocket. people think you just want to walk around and get laid.

General Board / transferring for personal reasons

my fiance will be attending buffalo in the fall of 2006. im currently out of state in law school. due to medical problems, i was advised that if i didnt have a baby soon, i might not be able to have one. so, we went ahead and now im pregnant. im going to try and transfer to buffalo, so we can be close. do you think, this is a good enough reason (providing my grades are decent) for them to allow me to transfer? has anyone else had personal reasons for needing to transfer?

in my property class, the professor called on 3 people who said they didnt read the case. it was the talk of the whole law school. i think the professor is giving up with us.
