What is a "tacit agreement"?  Even though it is rejected by the UCC in 2-715, comment 2, I still would like to know.

Our professor touched on this, but never really went over it.  There is no good definition or example anywhere.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Well I am not sure why you are citing 2-715 since that provision deals with buyer's incidental and consequential damages, I guess since it says it rejects the tacit agreement test.  "Tacit agreement" falls under 2-303.  It is essentially an agreement implied or inferred due to course of dealings.  The realitiy of the relationship that you have built up over a course of dealings will be used to interpret the agreement.  2-715 says that consequential damages are limited to losses from general or particular requirements and needs of which the seller at the time of contracting had reason to know.  Also, the peculiar circumstances and particular needs must be made known to the seller.  In other words, consequentials really can't be based on an implied agreement.  The seller has to reasonably know.  I really don't want to get into the UCC.  My advice is don't worry about it.  Take sales or another equivalent UCC course, and you will learn all you never wanted to know about it.
Yea!  that's what I wanted to say.

"Tacit" means inferred or implied.  I don't know I'm an 0L. Don't ask me tough questions.

Just quit.  Quitters sometimes win... Ask Paris Hilton... oh wait, she's a looser.  Ask Bill Gates He's a drop out.  Tiger Woods is a Drop out too!  Not many people have the timing and luck of those two.

You need to ask yourself why you enetered law school to bigin with. It sounds like you wanted to waist 50K and everyones time. 

And don't give me that T4 BS.  Your success depends more on perserverence, dedication, and integrity. A lot of people start from tough backgounds and do just fine. Ask Judge Mathis who couldn't even get accepted to the bar the first few years because of his criminal background.

Hey all. Here I am at work getting ready to waist another day reading this discussion board when I should be working.  I'm curious about the Non Tradition Law Students starting this year.  I have a seat at PSU-Dickinson SL in PA.  I'm 31 and currently work as a Real Estate Agent in Philly.  I'm excited, and wary of law school.  I graduated in '98 I did have some post grad schooling in 2001 but I haven't had to have my work graded since then.  I'm used to work with no feed back, and or grades.  My pay shows how well I perform. I'm an Army Veteran and have had my share of stressful moments, and excitement so I not sure how I'm going to deal with LS.

What are you guys thinking of this upcoming endeavor, and where are you coming from?

We in California call it the BEACH.  I've never heard anyone say, "I'm going down to the shore." 

Haven't you heard "Sally sells sea shells by the sea shore"? 

I'm also from philly but I don't put gravy on my pasta, I use sauce.  I was told by some people of italian decent that "gravy on your pasta" is an italian idiom.

Those of who plan to actually have a career when you graduate, I suggest you keep negative opinions to yourself.  If you hate a particular type of person, keep it to yourself.  I applied to Thomas M. Cooley, and Widener.  It doesn't matter where you go if you have talent, and have a workable plan.  Unless you're in what is considered the top 10 - 20 then rankings are irrelevant.  FYI: I accepted the offer from the Dickinson School of Law at Penn State.
