American / Re: Waitlisting procedures for American...

Yeah, I second the previous poster. Though I don't know much about Northeastern, I can tell you firsthand that DC is the place to be if you're studying law. There's more summer jobs here than you can shake a stick at.

General Board / Re: How much free time do you have as a 1L?
« on: February 03, 2007, 03:22:15 PM »
I generally have a bit of free time, with the exception of the first week of class, anytime legal writing is due, and about 3 weeks before finals

ditto. I typically take off weekends, with the exception of Sunday night, outside of the above circumstances.

1L job search / Re: I'm # 4 in my class, and can't get an interview

Is your career office not giving you any love?

General Board / Re: I'm just here for the Westlaw & Lexis points.
« on: February 01, 2007, 01:03:47 AM »
As I sit here in property class checking how many Lexis & Westlaw points I might tally up by graduation, I wonder what the best thing any law student has ever gotten with these points during the typical 3 years of law school.

Or, are there any hidden good deals in the Westlaw or Lexis shops?

I heard the 500 pt. Westlaw leather binder is a solid deal.

You can get the binder for free at the pre-Summer Associate research sessions -- you have to go to them anyway, so you might as well wait.


I want my free binder. Are the pre-summer associate research sessions done late in 2L? I haven't heard anything about them yet.

I think Lexis said that this semester is worth over 7000. An ipod would be nice.

I came close to 7000 last semester on Lexis, maybe 4300 or so on Westlaw. I'm hoping to have enough for a textbook on Westlaw by the start of next year.

i know you are not a lawyer, thats why u are on a lawschool board.  I am so a doctor now as I have seen er, so do not asume I am not a doctor, screw the ama and the aba   I am now a doctor

There might be the germ of a thought in here, but the syntax is so mangled that I couldn't tease any meaning from this sentence.

I would pay money to see duckasourus' LSAT writing sample...



Yeah, as soon as he actually takes the LSAT.

He's probably studying for his high school exit exam right now, either that or his parents grounded him from the computer.

General Board / Re: JD vs MD
« on: January 28, 2007, 11:21:58 PM »
I think there's actually quite a few JD/MD programs out there but I've never heard of or met anyone who actually completed it. I met a guy that tried and couldn't handle it. Strangely enough, he's in dental school now. I really don't much see the point in it. I'm working on a JD/MPH, and many of the legal jobs that graduates of my program go on to take are along side those with the rare MD/JD. If you want the JD, I would suggest a JD/MPH over a JD/MD; you would be out in so much less time and less debt.

Why don't you take the MCAT and LSAT, then go with the one where you score higher? Just an idea, either way there's gonna be some serious competition.

General Board / Re: How early is too early for outlining?
« on: January 28, 2007, 02:07:16 PM »
Though I haven't read all the posts, my experience suggests that it's not WHEN you start outlining but HOW WELL YOU KNOW YOUR OUTLINE/THE MATERIAL come exam time, as well as the outline's/material's ACCURACY.

wow i made a typo on an internet board, i must be a non aba dl now.  No my parents do not know I am on an adult message board although your daughter does, tell her I will pick her up at 10.

I apologize. I had you pegged all wrong; it seems you may be somewhere between the ages of 12-17, though lacking in formal education.
 
Also, based on the above post, I can assume A) you try to pick up girls on internet message boards (probably resulting from a failure to do so by more traditional means) and B) the girls you try to pick up are within the age range of those still living at home (high school and younger- so you're possibly a pedophile), or C) you're so lacking in creativity that you still use jokes from 15 years ago; AND D) you'll never make a good lawyer or law student because you make hasty and erroneous assumptions (I am a 25 yr. old full-time JD/MPH student at GW, engaged with no children).
 
In sum, I am saddened by the possibility that you might be a law student somewhere and that some poor client someday might have to rely on your advice. It wasn't just your typo, everybody has them, but it was your surprisingly ignorant reasoning combined with it. 

As far as the OP goes, I don't see purely online law schools being ABA recognized any time in the near future. However, I feel that their utility is one that shouldn't be overlooked. It is only fair that those who do not have the option of attending a traditional law school be given the opportunity to sit for the bar; if they pass, you learn most of what you know in practice on the job anyway.
