basically im using it to get a picture of what I will learn in law school, not to teach the law to myself with the supplements.

Im nervous because im not a 'traditional' law student. My undergrade was BME.

I have no knowledge of how the trial/ appellate level system works ect...

should this be a concern for me? What about all those students that wanted to go into law since they were 10, who have paralegal experince and blah blah blah...

maybe im being paranoid. i dont know

ok so i have heard conflicting advice on which supplements to buy!

But i think majority has said that E&e is good and chemerinsky for con law...

should i buy them in the summer?? or should i wait until i see what books are used for class??

i was also going to sign up with barbri and pmbr to get the free matierlas since some swear buy it

I plan to buy LEEWS and listen to it over the summer

can anyone offer some advice? I dont want to waste my money since i know it wont be cheap to buy all of this stuff.

what type of law do you want to do then? howcome not patent law?? this field is booming and is one of the highest paying fields. You only need a b.s. in engineering to sit for the patent bar.

I am a engineer major as well and I am looking to go into the patent field (that is if i dont change my mind within the next 3 years) Or maybe healthcare law if that doesnt pan out.

allot of people bash tier 3 and 4 schools.

I was thinking of picking  a tier 4 over a tier 3 due to location.

Im sure the people that bash these schools consider tier 3 & 4 in the same category.

Am i just wasting my money?!

Current Law Students / moot court/ law review

i always hear about highly ranked students being on moot court and law review. Are these things you HAVE to do to be successful??

I doubt i would want to do anything that would take away most of my time for studying..just seems like more law related stuff to do..

I saw a user post about this. Looks neat but I haven't ever heard anyone mention as a  good resource.

everyone recommends different supplements so I don't know what to buy.
