Houston / Professor Leslie Griffin?
« on: August 18, 2006, 10:59:02 PM »
Professor Griffin is visiting at my school this semester, and I was wondering if anybody can tell me anything about her teaching style, personality, exam preference, etc.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.

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?

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.

Based on everything you've said, I would go to Chicago-Kent. They have a decent rep in the Chicago area, and you're going to make plenty of contacts while you're there. It doesn't matter what state you take the bar in as long as you take the BARBRI course for that state. Also, as far as rankings in specific areas go, most employers don't even know they exist. Don't primarily base your decision on rankings.

Whatever you think will make you happy is the answer of course, but I'd start looking for housing in Chicago. Good luck.

There's a program called Outliner, I think Lexis has a link to it. If you buy Outliner, you get free case briefs from Lexis, or something like that. I've never used it but I have a friend who uses it, haven't heard anything bad about it.

Yeah, I think I've heard a few things about Outliner. I heard it was kind of overpriced for what it did, but that the free case briefs made it worth it. This is just ambiguous hearsay though.

Yep, Illinois for Chicago, Fordham for New York. However, cost of living for Fordham will be higher than Illinois, and you'll have some okay college teams to watch in football and basketball at Illinois. I'm guessing you'll get more of a "college feel" at Illinois if it's something you were lacking in undergrad. Hope this helps.
