General Board / Re: caught for plagiarism at my school
« on: March 01, 2006, 10:42:34 AM »
IDK dude, this is a pretty serious issue for ya... I know that my school gives you the option of leaving, admitting and taking your licks, or dragging your name in the mud in a very public fashion within the school should you fight...

As for the OP, you've pretty much admitted to cheating; admirable for admitting... I consider this to be foolish, but admirable. Considering that they may not have been wholly certain as to who was the perpetrator of the offense, you could have gotten off.

I have a personal bias though, I dont condone plag or cheating at all... I honestly dont know if you will be able to continue your legal career and not have grace issues later with CF, bar, hiring, etc.

How about the Spike Lee wanna be who refers to the white man as evil and insists that criminal law didnt exist until the emancipation proclamation?

Arbitrary point man: I really, REALLY wish that you would just let the teacher stick to the goddamn subject and stop touching your own ego with your heroic stories as a peace advocate and being tazed for protesting fur wearing. Im firmly aware of the supposed injustices that the government that pays your student loans does to brown people in third world countries. We are all aware of the plight of the homosexual community... This doesnt exactly equate to an educated answer to "What is the policy implications behind allowing a minor to hold disability in an adverse possession action".Im sure that you are heroic in your own mind. The rest of us seem to think that you need shampoo, a razor, and maybe a new pair of pants that dont display your awesome and gnarly tattoos.

Fat Man: We really would appreciate you keeping the wheezing to a minimum... there is an elevator... take it.. spare us the sounds of air raid sirens for the first 13 minutes of class as your lungs and heart try to adjust to the 12 steps you strenuously climbed... thank you.

Pregnant girl: Please dont use your damnable child that will be as an excuse for wanting to sit in the center of the row when you show up 10-12 minutes late to the class... sit in the aisle

Amazingly ignorant race card puller: Attention: NOT EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE YOU ARE (enter race here)... believe me, there is law involved. More likely than not, the defendant broke it, and he is getting his just desert.

Peppy sorority girl: Not everyone is as chipper as you at 8 am... please either go smoke some pole or find another avenue to dispense your "happy happy joy joy bug", the rest of us are tired.

Courageous HAndicap person: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE understand that the first row (the one that doesnt have stairs) is for you to sit... this is why there are parts of the table that have no chair in front of them... use it and stop bitching about wanting to be in the back of the class.

Conspiracy Theory guy: No, aids was not released to kill your people.. and such discussions have no bearing to the rest of us learning vicarious liability.

More to come.. .


Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Time management tips

My school doesnt allow IL to get into the groups. You are allowed to try out towards the end of 2d semester, but not allowed to be part of the group until 2L year.

I think it is a good policy, bc 2d semester for us is 21 creds.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: After the Exam, How does an A exam feel??
« on: February 27, 2006, 01:03:20 PM »
Well, I got an A on one, and really, I felt the same as I did after each one... exhausted and ready to drink a beer in front of sportscenter.. LOL

Well, my lawschool is really, really, REALLY rough on grading. Our curve is hell, and an 85 will put you at top 40-30%.

I will say this, My favorite class was also my lowest grade, at a C. After talking to the professor, he said that my analysis was good, but the wear and tear of the test got to me. The test was a 24 hour take home. at 12th hour all of us were finishing the first Q we decided to do. I ended up with a C bc at the last Q I basically just laid out the rule and application, which ended up screwing me in the end, bc he said my first two questions were stellar and near top score. I got tired, and the test beat me. I am not all that daunted though.

My torts grade was best, and I was near the top of the class (10). It was a traditional exam though, sitting in the room with the little exam books. I honestly prefer those bc you dont second guess yourself with the material the way that you are led to do with an open book, IMO.

My other grade fell right about mid-line and got me a B avg.

So really, I think that the C you got isnt going to KILL your chances, nor will it make you unemployable. As said above, after 5 years, all thats going to matter is your last case and your ability to do your job; grades wont mean *&^% at that point.

To the stupid spoiled whore: I understand that you have better things to do than study, i also realize that you do not pay for your education, but please please please please dont repeatedly ask for my outline every 12.46. seconds because you missed yesterday to get your hair did.

To the fat christian assmonkey: Jesus, jesua, mohammad and krishna have no place within the law, keep your jesus off my penis buddy, and ill keep my penis off of you.

To the feminine hygiene product with a heart:I know yo have a difficulty dealing wiht the fact that I dont give three rats asses about the condition of malasian prostitute wourkers, but honestly, keep your tree huggin hippy crap to yourself, go to a commune if you believe its all gotta be fair..

my chick has issues about law school too. Dude, you have to be hard nosed about it, tell her that this is yur career and your life and that she needs to stop with the BS and understand that. I been with mine for 3-4 yrs and I know ill prolly keep her, at the same time, I dont have time for BS when im this under pressure.

I try to do something nice, on my time, and when i make a move like that I move big. It doesnt need to be expensive... just well done...

I am PRAYING that my exams went well, i had to deal with my gf in my little ass apt. in DC, during dead week. Do you have any idea how annoying an attention seeking chick gets in a small room? I dealt with it though, switch hours, work while she sleeps, or send her to town. Im a 1L to top it off.

honestly, if something like ur chick is getting on u, ask yourself if shes long term, if she is worth it, and if your possible shattered dreams and working at bestbuy are worth it... then dump her ass.

well. After a first semester, battered bruised and beaten, but alive, I can say that I have a profound respect and a bit of love for the law... a bit... hopefully it will get better. I just hope i did well this semester.
