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).

I know there is one in the Nebraska courts section. I believe there is a space missing between the Neb._Ct._App. or the like.

Transferring / Re: Purely speculative, but seeking advice nonetheless
« on: October 22, 2005, 09:58:44 PM »
From what I understand, the very top schools, especially harvard and yale, dont accept any transfers that couldnt have gotten in originally (or at least could have come close). Your LSAT is good, but I think your UGPA will prevent them from accepting you no matter how well you your 1L. However their are other top schools that dont operate this way. I know GW is one.

Grading is done anonomously (at least at my school). Even if it was't, to think that a professor would research you lsat, undergrad school, ant UGPA as he or she graded exams is the absolute dumbest, ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Think about the time that would entail, and for what? How did you morons get into law school?

Current Law Students / Re: Considering dropping out.. any advice?

let me get this staight...You put youself hopelessly in debt, undertook the most challenging intellectual gauntlets possible, and dedicated yourself to a career that you have absolutely no interest in. All because you are scared of your mommy and daddy? I think maybe you should grow the f- up. And then drop out.

I agree that lower tierd schools are more practice oriented. I know cause Im at one. However we were no.1 in the state on the last bar exam. Shouldn't preparing for the bar be the most important thing. That fancy T14 degree will be useless when you fail the bar and lose that great job (which is what happens when a firm hires you and you fail the bar) besides, as long as you learn the black letter law, how to apply it, and understand the background, who really cares about policy. Im not saying its meaningless, but definately not worth spending a signifigant amount of tuition on.

T Durden, all you data is still on your laptops harddrive. Theres gotta be a way to get it back. You can maybe remove the harddrive and hook it up to a different computer. I think...

there is absolutely no truth in this. the subject matter is exactly the same. Obviously wich ever state your school is in will thow in some of that states law. But only sparingly

Current Law Students / Re: Law school admission with criminal record
« on: September 30, 2005, 04:53:59 PM »
i had an extensive juvenile criminal record, but was admitted to several schools regardless. I have contacted my schools dean on student affairs inquiring as to how difficult it will be to be admitted to the bar. He assured me that as long as you are completely honest and candid with the character and fitness people they tend to be very forgiving of what is in the past.
