Yep, no formal grading.

I'd imagine it makes it very hard to transfer since you don't have any grades for schools to look at.

Current Law Students / Re: JAG - Info wanted!
« on: January 19, 2009, 06:41:11 PM »

I'm interested in being an AF JAG.  Good information here and yes, I learned a lot through their website.

Any others still thinking about being a JAG?  Specifically 1Ls?  What are you doing or to the more seasoned students/graduates, what did you do your 1L summer?

I worked for a Judge 1L summer, did the AF JAG internship 2L summer.  I am up for the Feb. selection board and will find out something at the end of Feb. or early March.

If you took PR then don't worry.  Find an MPRE outline, read through it a few times, take 1-2 practices tests and you'll be fine.  A few hours one or 2 nights and you'll pass.

Current Law Students / Re: Two RA positions, which would you pick?

I personally would go with what pays more, but I'm poor

Most schools don't curve a lot of upper level classes, but I've never heard of a school that has no curved classes.  Some schools don't grade at all though, so that might be your best bet.

Current Law Students / Re: Internship at State PD or Federal PD

I would say fed, they have a lighter caseload, more interesting material, and the federal government is almost always more prestigious than state.  Plus your local federal defender might have the funds to pay you, very doubtful the state PD has any kind of surplus budget.

Transferring / Re: Transferring after 2L year, is it possible?

Call the school you want to transfer to and ask.  Schools bend admission policies all the time.

Transferring / Re: Beginner's questions

I would take a year off , re-take the LSAT and reapply to Vandy if that is where you want to be.  It is difficult to transfer there, I was #1 in my class (at a very low ranked school) and was rejected. You wouldn't need to be number 1 at Ohio State to be considered, but I'd imagine you'd need to be near the top.
