I'm moving to NYC (Queens) on June 1. Any one who is/will be a law student in the city have any banking suggestions? I'm debating Bank of America with Chase.

Back when I was an undergraduate studying animal learning, a graduate student told me that there were "dictionaries" that you could download and install for use with MS Word that would allow the program to have a greater vocabulary for specific fields. I'm pretty sure they have these for many science fields, and I imagine that they have one for law. I'll do a little Googling to see what I can find.
This is what makes me nuts...the "add to dictionary" feature. We use a lot of words that word highlights as incorrect spellings. (For the life of me, can't seem to think of one now!) Anyway, if I add it to the dictionary, I would love that all forms of the word be added, like the plural form, etc.
Let's carry on this conversation in the other thread- trying to get as many CUNY folks chatting as possible.
I wasn't aware that other schools were only Mon-Thurs. For me, after working Mon-Fri for the past 4 years, a short Friday will be a relief. Besides, I think if I had Fridays off I might be more inclined to slack- I need a tight schedule to keep myself in line!
I just talked to Admissions regarding the Summer Law Institute- the woman who I spoke to believes that students are notified about their enrollment in the program when they recieve their admission letter, but she couldn't say for sure. She transferred me to David (last name something like 'Nedvorny' or something) who is responsible for the institute, and I left him a voicemail. I will keep you posted.
I read "Law School Confidential," and it was a good read. Definately some useful information, as well as some not-so-useful information. I feel that, right now, I need to focus on preparing my mind to study, since I have been out of college for about 4 years now.
I'll probably pick up "Planet Law School" this weekend- thanks for the tip.
I'm assuming this poster is joking. If so, it is a great piece of satire. If not, he/she should re-consider going to law school.
I'm a law school admit for the fall of 06. I've read a few of the posts related to studying and read a couple of law school experience books including "Law School Confidential". The suggested amount of time needed to do well in law school seems ridiculously high and reminds me of warnings I got in middle school, "Sure you'll get by fine without doing your homework but wait until you get to High School", then in High School, "Sure you'll get by fine doing only 3 hours of homework a week but wait until college". My most difficult Calc 3 class in college took 2 hours of studying per week and 60% attendance to get an A.
I have yet to start school (will be a 1L this fall), but I imagine my schedule will be as follows: In class weekday business hours, study weekday late afternoons and evenings until bed, allocating small breaks for meals, work-out, etc. Fridays cut off the studying at about 9 or so to relax or go out, as budget allows. Study all day Saturday and Sunday.
