Current Law Students / Anyone go to Hastings?

What are the formats of your e-mail addresses?  I lost the address of a friend of mine who goes there and I can't find it on Hastings' web site at all.  Grrrrrrrr.

Guess most people haven't moved yet- or I'm the only one still on this board from time to time.  Less than three weeks to go!

Illinois Institute of Technology / Recent suicide?

Is it true a recent soon-to-be Kent grad committed suicide just before graduation?  A friend of mine told me this but I have not been able to find any information on the internet.

Hey Sarbinson1,

How do you know it's really competitive at Cooley...are you currently attending? I would like to know more if you can expand further.


Nope, just based on what I've heard from friends who are pretty well versed in law schools.  I'm an incoming 1L at a different school.

Finishing law school in two years is a major factor in my decision to go to Cooley.  It means less expenses b/c I only need to rent a place for two years, and I can start working earlier.

So, anyone have any thoughts on the high attrition rates?  Do you think it's more competitive at Cooley, or simply that there are more students at Cooley that are just not as well-suited for the study of law because of their high acceptance rate??

It's probably 50/50.  It's going to be very competitive because everyone wants to be in the top 10 percent for job purposes.  Plus, while there are some very smart people there, there are also a good number of marginals.  Just based on hearsay from a couple friends.

Just curious if anybody's moved out here yet.  I'm starting to get that anxious feeling now that we're a month from orientation.  Hopefully I'm not the only one following my orientation advisors' advice not to do any prep work...

I plan to attend as well.

hope to finish in two years and appreciate the scholarship (75%) but I am really nervous about the high attrition rate. What do you Jan 1Ls think? Does it make you nervous?


How can you finish in two years?  Is this a special aspect of Cooley?
