Current Law Students / Re: Req:Good audio recorder?

Has anyone used the record feature in Microsoft OneNote?  I thought about trying it out if it would be mildly useful

You can have a part-time job and still do well if you manage your time.  I didn't work, but I had enough free time that I probably could have.  You might not want a job so you can have some downtime between all the school related stress.

I only studied 1-3 hours outside of class during most of the year, about 2 weeks before finals it went up significantly.

Current Law Students / Re: Having a 17 inch laptop for law school?
« on: July 22, 2007, 08:17:37 AM »
I did fine with a 17 inch, it can get heavy when you have a lot of books but it is manageable.  A lot of classmates had 17 inchers too, don't sweat it.

cool! Hopefully all those years of lifting will come in handy.  :) The other issue is the battery life on these things is supposed to be very poor. Is it safe to assume that most schools will have power outlets for each desk in the classrooms?

My school has power outlets at every seat, I would imagine this is the norm at most places.  Occasionally I would come across a dead outlet and have to use the battery, I would just dim the screen half way and it will last 3- 3 1/2 hours on the battery.  That should be more than enough to get you through a class, plus you can always buy an extra battery if you are really concerned.

It is definitely a race for time.

I like to think of law school exams as a different version of Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo.  :) You have a limited amount of time to rack up as many points as possible and get to the end.  If you dont, you lose.



7 hours?

Agreed.  My Civil Procedure final was a 7-hour closed book exam, and I BARELY finished...

I also agree with the poster suggesting that you stop thinking about exams.  RELAX.  There will be plenty of time to worry yourself sick come classes.  However, if your exam anxiety gets the best of you--as it did me last summer-I suggest reading "Getting to Maybe."  It is a how-to book on writing law school exams, and I found it very helpful.  Goodluck and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Transferring / Re: Resume Question

I haven't gone through OCI yet, but the answer I've seen on here most often is to drop your old school after you get grades from your new school and certainly once you graduate.

well here is some input from a balding 1L.  lol...my father and grandfather have full heads of hair but thats beside the point..i guess law school has gotten to me:)


Just a note on genetics... You get your hair from your mother's side of the family, if you're a man.

And goatees are indeed tacky.

This is folklore, except for the goatee part

You might want to grab a few more shirts, but as long as your suits are normal colors (navy/charcoal) I don't see why you would need more than 2
