General Board / Re: Contracts Question...
« on: September 01, 2007, 12:21:52 PM »
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.

Law Firms / Re: Bald Hair
« on: August 14, 2007, 05:13:35 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.

General Board / Re: Thomas Cooley vs. Nova Southeastern
« on: August 02, 2007, 08:15:23 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.

Transferring / Re: How to transfer???
« on: July 30, 2007, 08:22:02 AM »
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

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.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: 12 Hours A DAY?

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

General Board / Re: Having a 17 inch laptop for law school?
« on: July 22, 2007, 10:17:37 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.
