Current Law Students / Please help me with Professional Responsibility
« on: October 25, 2007, 02:15:44 PM »
My teacher is f'n horrible, this is by far the worst class I have ever had in law school.  Suggest supplement/supplements to help me learn this *&^% on my own.  Thank you.

This is ridiculous.  Go to law school if you want to go to law school.  The people who tell you not to go are the people who were not mature enough to make an informed decision about what to do with their lives.  So they didn't try hard enough in their first year, ended up with less than stellar grades, and now want to blame it on "law school."  Give me a break.  We all must chose a career at one point or another, the law is just as good as anything else (if it is what you want to do), so be mature, make an informed decision, and then learn to live with it.  Oh, and if you don't like it, leave.  Life is too short for all of this negativity and self pity.   ;D

I made stellar grades and still wish I hadn't come.  Some people may like it though so I'm not going to give out a blanket  opinion that everyone should stay away.

Current Law Students / Re: LSAT necessarily indicative of 1L performance?

How do you earn points after 1L year, all I can figure out is the search/trivia; no more tutorials and exercises for easy points.

Transferring / Re: Should I transfer?

I made a lot of friends before I transferred, many of them are still friends and will make great contacts later on since most of them are going into different regional markets then where I am planning on practicing.  You can only study so much, I think being in the library from dawn till midnight is counterproductive.

Current Law Students / Re: Contracts Question...
« on: September 01, 2007, 10:21:52 AM »
Very quickly....

Expectation puts you in the position you would be had the deal gone through, you get whatever your profit would have been

Reliance is out-of-pocket expenses that you incurred in reliance on the performance of the contract, travel, materials, etc.

Restitution puts you back in the position that you were before the contract.

Sorry I couldn't expand, but hopefully that will help a little.  Check some commercials supplements.

Job Search / Re: Bald Hair
« on: August 14, 2007, 03:13:35 PM »
What about bald females?  Sometimes I just hate the hassle of styline hair.

And male-pattern baldness is definitely passed through the mother.  It's on the X, which men receive from their mother. 

This means that the baldness trait can be inherited from the mother's side of the family or the father's side. The commonly held notion that baldness comes only from the mother's side of the family is incorrect, although for reasons not fully understood, the predisposition inherited from an affected mother is of slightly greater importance than that inherited from an affected father.

For many years our schools have taught - quite erroneously - that hair loss is always inherited from the mother's father. Medical science now knows that baldness genes are passed down from both sides of the family. They also can skip generations and are utterly random in terms of which siblings they will affect. It is quite common for a woman to keep a full head of hair while her sister begins experiencing severe thinning in her twenties.

Just some of the first few that popped up on google

Current Law Students / Re: Thomas Cooley vs. Nova Southeastern
« on: August 02, 2007, 06:15:23 PM »
I'd go with Nova, I don't know if it is a better school, but at least it doesn't have the Cooley stigma attached.  As someone who transferred from a crummy T4, I'd suggest you retake the LSAT and wait another year.

1. Don't retake LSAT

2. Get good grades

3. Fill out transfer application, write required essays, send transcript, get letters of recommendation

4. Wait for acceptance
