Most Jurisdictions require horizontal and vertical privity for the burden to run.  A minority trend only requires vertical privity for the burden to run.  Horizontal privity is not required for the benefit to run.

If you qualify as a bona fide purchaser, you take the land free from any encumbrances if you did not have 1. Actual, 2. Inquiry, or 3. Record notice of the encumbrance

The real question is, how did you do on those 2 finals?

I'm going to have to go with Civil Procedure, it is just too boring to make me even slightly interested and memorizing rules this semester has been a grueling task.

My sincere suggestion is to do nothing law related this summer as your entire life will be consumed with it the next year.  You will wish you could have that time back; drink beer, sit by the pool, hang out with friends.  You aren't going to have loads of free time to enjoy these simple pleasures.

EDIT I still found time to drink beer, but the other 2 are iffy.

Do CALI lesson

drbuff123:  Do you have the same issue I have with the higher cost, etc.?

xferlawstudent:  Why not one year? Because it's already cost me thousands more just for one semester, no way am I doing one year; plus it's too late anyway now.  Well, I think I need a job right after the bar exam which is at the beginning of August and I think I can interview during the time studying for the bar at that city which is from mid-May till late July and available for interviews, but as a jobless-from-another-state-law-school-graduate.

Visit will cost my more money, potentially lose some opportunity for activities at my current school such as judicial externship, mock trial, etc., but, the visiting school is ranked half a tier higher than my current school and obviously, it has a good reputation in the city where I want to be.   

Meeting fellow soon-to-be lawyers is also important to me at this new city. Do you guys think doing this almost two month long Barbri course is enough opportunity to make new friends?

Yes, I would be foregoing a full ride to visit.  I am only a 1L so I am attempting to transfer, but if that doesn't work out I was thinking of visiting my 3L year as the school is located in the city I want to practice.

I was thinking about doing this too; hopefully someone has some info.
