Current Law Students / Re: Study Groups
« on: January 10, 2006, 07:35:27 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"

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.

Current Law Students / HELP: Future interest question
« on: December 03, 2005, 05:36:36 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?

Current Law Students / Re: Accepted to law school w/o undergrad degree?

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.

Current Law Students / Re: K Question: When is revocation effective?
« on: November 23, 2005, 11:39:57 AM »
your friend must be mistaken. there is no minority view. the common law rule is that acceptance is effective upon dispatch (mailbox rule) and revocation is effective only upon receipt.

2 good reasons why you are making a bad move
1) From what I understand, the ABA forbids anyone with more than 5 absences from passing a class at an ABA accredited school. In fact, you are prevented from even taking the final.

2) Many profs opinions on the law are diffent, even if only slightly, from what you will find in a commercial supplement, or even in your casebook. If you give them an answer that you got from an outside source, and they want something different, your answer will be wrong. Plus in class, many profs give clues as to what they are looking for on an exam, you will not know what they want stressed, and how they want answers presented.

I would do it this summer, because most other 1L's wont do anything. This way you will have a serious edge over them at Fall 2L OCI. Plus maybe next summer you can get a summer associateship at a big firm based on your experience (they pay very well).
