General Board / Re: What are "good grades?"
« on: March 25, 2007, 10:40:57 PM »
grading scales vary from school to school, and generally (depends) tier to tier.  If you're just looking for a simple answer, to "what are 'good grades?'" class rank is where you should look. Top 5% at a T1 is awesome, just as Top 5% at a T4 is awesome. However, Top 75% at a T14 may be good, whereas Top 75% at T4 is not so good.  Across the board, gpa's are not descriptive enough.

Funny that you mention it, I just graduated from a strong regional T3 with 200K in debt, and I have acquired a marginally decent job.  Coincidentally, I am in fact living in a cardboard box behind Kmart (own, not rent).

Please. You'll graduate, get a decent job, and pay your debt off over time.

General Board / Re: How to Become In-House Counsel/Corporate Counsel

If i wanted to work as counsel for a corporation rather than working for a law firm, how would I go about doing that?

1) Cut a hole in a box

2) Put your junk in that box

3) Make her open the box

Word.  taking notes is taking notes.

when I first stated, I thought that I would need something *special*, but that proved to be a complete waste of money.  I bought Outliner 4.0  (storelaw product, look it up on the web).  It combines online commercial outlines with your notes in one big crappy program.  Sounds good, but not worth it at all. 

My school offers OneNote training, but I have not checked it out. 

Like I said, taking notes is taking notes.

Could happen at any school.  Don't let this sway you. 

Would you not let this sway you in any other situtation?  May the place you live?  How about where you work?

I would call each individual school regarding your staus.

on a different note, I would not go to FLCSL, especially if you get into one of the other programs.  I am assuming that the 2 NC schools are NCCentral and Campbell, both much better schools than FLCSL.  Campbell has a well respected local rep, as does NCCentral.  I believe that the NC govenor is a central law grad.

I don't know anything about Appalach.

Here's some good press.

January 2002 Campus Shooting
Main article: Appalachian School of Law shooting
On January 16, 2002, ASL Dean Anthony Sutin, Professor Thomas Blackwell, and 1L student Angela Dales were shot and killed by disgruntled student Peter Odighizuwa, 43, of Nigeria. At trial, Odighizuwa was found mentally competent, plead guilty to the murders to avoid the death penalty, and was sentenced to multiple life terms in prison.
