General Board / Re: YOUR advice for prospective law students

Keep class participation to a minimum. Only speak when the prof asks a q and u have the answer. Dont offer your opinion on anything cause noone really could care less. Ive noticed a direct corellaton between how much you talk in class and how much you will be despised and mercelessly ridiculed by your classmates. Besides, class participation and preparation have no impact on grades. The people i know who wrote holmesean briefs and kissed the profs ass were all dissapointed with their grades. Its all about the BLL and applying it on the exams..period!

Good example of why affirmative action admission policies are counterproductive. When you have underqualified people gaining admission solely on the basis of race, you are basically setting someone up to fail.

General Board / Re: Study Groups
« on: January 10, 2006, 10:35:27 PM »
i studied solo all semester and did very well. Im sort of the independent type though. I tried a few "study groups" toward the end and found them to be panic fests and largely a waste of time. In fact I felt at a disadvantage after them cause I wound up teaching the friggin morons everything. In general I think if you do a practice exam once a week for an hour instead of meeting with a group you'll be in great shape.

take it easy. a C is not a bad grade in law school and im assuming this was your first semester. all you need is a A to average that C into a B, and you still have next semester to improve before any law review or scholorship decisions are made. Plus the whole grade thing is way overhyped. Every lawyer ive ever spoken to about it all says the same thing: 5 years after law school, if you work hard you can get any job you want, youll only be as good as your last case. Grades are only important if you want to go into biglaw and be miserable the rest of your life. A 2.7 at my school can put you into to the top 1/3 of the class (we have a strict C curve) and one C is so inignificant that you should stop worrying right now. even if you got straight C's through all of law school your career wouldnt be "ruined"

it absolutely sucks. that one class out of all five classes probably took up 75% of all my work time. And it doesnt matter at all if your a good writer.

i would say tier 4 actually. i went to a pretty good UG (rutgers) had almost identical numbers to you. i got either waitlisted or rejected from every top 100 and tier 3 i applied to. i was only accepted to 2 schools 1) new england school of law and 2) florida coastal. i came to FCSL because they gave me a 10k per year scholarship. its actually not that bad here at all and we are moving to a brand new really nice building next year. hopefully i wont be here to see it cause im gonna try and transfer back back up north. its pretty much guarnteed youll get $$ from FCSL though. good luck

Does anyone know what effect ouster has on the continuity requirement on an adverse possessor?
Any help would be appreciated.

General Board / HELP: Future interest question
« on: December 03, 2005, 08:36:36 PM »
Husband conveys: To Wife for life, then to A,B,C, but if any children smoke crack, then that childs share shall pass to his/her children in fee, and if he/she has no children, then to that child's siblings so alive.

What interests are created?

General Board / Re: Accepted to law school w/o undergrad degree?
« on: November 30, 2005, 04:17:40 PM »
i dont mean to be discouraging, but to be accepted to any of those schools you would need a good lsat and a degree. with no degree you would need a stellar lsat and some rivetting life experience. A 149 is considered very low, even for a tier 4.
