Current Law Students / Re: Living right by the law school?
« on: September 05, 2006, 09:01:11 PM »
One problem I've found in living close to the law school is that I end up taking too much work home with me, which means I put it off until the last moment. There is also the temptation to go home and take a nap during a lull in the day, instead of staying at school and getting some work done.

Living a distance away allows me to put a buffer between school and home, which I need, and allows me to successfully treat law school as a job (a time-honored way to positive results in law school). Of course, this is just what I've found works for me.

Thats another reason I do not think I will enjoy law school. I hear there are alot of ASSHOLES In law.

Yep, there are a whole lot of assholes in law school. However, we have an adversarial system that  forces you to deal with them, as well as become one if need be. If you have trouble dealing with assholes on an anonom. message board, law school might not be your cup of tea. Thick skin is a must in this field, imho of course.

No, but I have a pretty economics-minded professor, or so I've heard, at GW.

I'm using Franklin, Rabin, and Green's "Tort Law and Alternatives 8th Ed." and we're starting with the concept of vicarious liability in respect to apparent authority. There is a good bit of economic theory thrown in there too.

Emory, a really nice all around school, but you better be able to handle fast-moving and congested freeways.

You've been accepted for transfer at both? I've never heard of that happening, ever. Not to say it isn't possible.

DePaul. Transfer and don't look back. You'll thank yourself, especially if you're wanting a job in the legal field in Chicago.

Emory, an easy choice. Also, why so late in making a decision, unless you're talking about 2007/08?

Transferring / Re: Transferring after doing GW part-time

You might be able to transfer to Georgetown's part-time program. I've never heard of them taking a part-time into their full-time as a transfer. Right now, I would be more worried about making decent grades your first year and being happy where you are. GW is a great school.
