I haven't seen a clear "yes" or "no" on the websites...but many say that you can enter the MA portion in the fall of your second year...so it seems possible...

to the guy who said he had his ass handed to him in mock trial - what exactly does this mean? For whatever inexplicable reason I signed up for mock trial as a 1L and the competition is in 2 or so weeks. Can you please shine some light on what it is that I have gotten myself into? I thouhgt that I only had to give an opening statement, do direct and cross examinatin of witnesses, and that was it - how does one's ass get handed to him during this process? The other side was that good?
Hey Everyone--I need a little pep talk or something. I am starting to feel really down about law school. I cannot motivate myself to work. I can't stand most of the people in school with me, with the exception of a few I like. I don't find any joy in any of the work or in any topics we discuss. I always thought I wanted to be an attorney, and I always heard it was boring and stressful...it actually took me going to law school and getting in debt to believe the rumors though. The atmosphere does not even seem academic--it just seems like work. Unfortunately, I majored in public administration and philosophy for undergrad so I would not have any luck finding a job if I were to leave school. Should I try to tranfer schools? What would my chances be? My gpa is only a 3.007. I turned down georgia state last year for a tier 3...do you think they would even accept me again? Or do you think tranferring is even the solution to my problems...Help!
If it's never going to better, then could someone please recommend a good supplement.
Can you get on the Dean's list at law school?
Also, is it fairly difficult to graduate with honors and get on a law review at law school?
Finally, in order to take the boards, do you have to choose the state you will be practicing in ? Or is it that once you pass the boards for X state, you can practice anywhere in the US?
Pardon my ignorance, but how are there 30+ fed dist court judges in 2 counties, and is a state supreme court clerkship more prestigious than a federal district court clerkship (I assume it is, but I had never thought about this before)?
