Socratic Method / Re: True Horror Story

This is why I'm a HUGE believer in the pre-emptive strike.  I usually volunteer for about 10 minutes or so, then I'm done for the class, unless something being said is particularly interesting.


So, riddle me this, batman...

How does volunteering for 10 minutes, and then not saying anything for the remaining 1 hour 5 minutes plus, make me a gunner?

A gunner is someone who talks all the time, usually with no point to what they are saying, other than to hear the wonderful sounds of their melodious voices.  Clearly, If the total class time is 75 minutes, and I volunteer for only 20% of it (at most), that would leave wholly 80% of the class time where the only communicating I'm doing is on IM.

If you think that makes me a gunner, maybe you are projecting your own "gunner-ness" upon me.  Maybe you're the type who has to say everything, all the time, and hates whenever anyone else dares to answer a question in class, because they clearly don't know the answer, because they are not nearly as brilliant as you are.

1 person in a class of about 90+ taking up 20% of the time is a little disproportionate dont you think?  And as most of us know, after grades come out after that first semester, a lot of gunners seem to learn their place. ;D

i only seem to work efficiently in the library when i have my earplugs, and i am hidden from my classmates who have a tendency to chat too much!

i think emmanuel's is a simpler outline to understand... i find the understanding series by lexis to be very helpful

I think the HLS on your resume is enough to get a good shot at employment for your 1L summer at a big chicago firm

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: 12 Hours A DAY?

12 hrs a day? not likely!!!  I think anywhere from 4-5 is a more accurate guess.  Some times I would only study as little as 1-2 hours, and when legal writing projects were due/the final few weeks, I would study closer to 7-8 hours a day

perhaps... I think top third can put you at Midlaw at least.  If you can graduate from a good school debt free... go for it!
