Current Law Students / Re: Doing worse second semester
« on: January 30, 2007, 07:51:28 PM »
I can't seem to get motivated either. I'm at least the top third after the first semester (B average on C curve). The randomness of it all is driving me crazy. I HATED contracts all last semester and ended up with an A- (didn't study much for the final and didn't really feel like I had a good grasp on the material either). Yet in Criminal Law I put a TON of study time in, felt really good about the exam and ended up with a C!! WTF?? I was totally ready to have to take K over again and it ended up my highest grade.

I don't know what I did wrong and what I did right last time. This semester I've gotten really lazy (I'm book briefing, not outlining yet, have missed a few classes, etc.) I've heard about "hitting the wall" your second semester. I just hope I get over it soon because I'm pissing myself off  :o

Current Law Students / Practicing in Canada?

Does anyone have any information on practicing in Canada? I am currently a 1L going to school in Michigan and I am really interested in moving to Canada when I'm done (provided Bush hasn't blown up the world by then) ;D

OMG I soooooooo hear you. My CRIM LAW sucked on Tuesday but today's tort exam rocked!! It was nice to feel good after an exam.

Well, I ranted about my Crim final yesterday, but my TORTS final rocked!!! We had a ton of multiple choice (60) which sucked onl due to fatique factor, but the essays were relatively easy WOOOOO HOOOOOO. Only one left to go - CONTRACTS, yuck!  >:(

Just finished torts, and there's only one more to go (Thank God).

But we had a stupid character limit on the torts final which was SOOO annoying. I can't tell if my limited answeres were pure genius, or blatantly asking for more analysis.  Whatever.

My Torts exam is tomorrow. In some of the profs past exams (most recent ones) he limited answers to 6 SENTENCES!!!!! No, I'm not kidding. WTF can I say in 6 sentences........ GRRRRR..... hate lazy profs

Any writing with a signature can usually satisfy a SOF issue if the person being sued is the one that signed it that is. I'm pretty sure I'm right on this. Haven't studied UCC 3 though, that's in contracts II

I am 35 and have four children - ages 14, 8, 7, and 6. My hubby and kids are an asset. They help me stay focused and lead a balanced life. I'm only going part time the first few semesters and right now it's working out great. I go to class three days a week in the morning then go to the library to study till they get home in the afternoon. I usually spend a few days a week at the library from 7-11 or so but except for the two weeks before finals, the weekend is FAMILY TIME!! It really helps :0)

OMG how bad my crim final sucked!! I knew the material cold but half of our test was these hard ass impossible multiple choice questions (HARDER THAN THE ONES ON THE F*CKING BAR EXAM!!!!!) Law school seriously seriously bites. I could have talked to her in depth about any tiny issue we discussed, murder wasn't even one of the F*CKING essay questions -  yes, I'm serious....I seriously think I failed (and what, if I'm way off mark here, I got a C??) I don't even care anymore, F law review, F the great summer job, I just want to get out of law school with my sanity and a diploma - GRRRRRRRR -
Ok, vent over,

I too am a 1L at a T4 law school on scholarship. I am a mom of 3 kids (ages 8,7,and 6). I went BTS about 2 yrs ago and finished my BA (which I started in 1989 LOL). I have been alternating between loving law school and hating it. It's really hard for me to strike a good balance btw family and school. Fortunately I have several attorney friends who help me keep it in perspective. Just stick it out, and who says you have to go work for a big law firm anyway... Having a law degree will open so many doors for you. Good luck!
