Current Law Students / LSAT necessarily indicative of 1L performance?
« on: October 08, 2007, 08:22:56 AM »
I'm kinda sad because my LSAT fell below the median at my school by a few points. Does this necessarily mean I'll be in the bottom half of the class? I just hear and read a lot of stuff saying that the LSAT is a good indicator of 1L grades.

Someone make me feel better! I feel like I can't get out of that funk where all you do is think you're not law school material, everyone is smarter than you, etc.

Current Law Students / chatting in class

so our legal research final is coming up.

people have actually bought study aids for this. i don't feel it's necessary, but now they have me doubting myself.

comfort? advice? :( i'm feeling really sad about school.

Current Law Students / class of gunners? or did i miss the boat?

OK, so how necessary is it to hop online and read the unedited cases? It seems like half of my class is doing that, and I don't see the point. I thought the casebook editors took out some of the material to help us learn a certain issue.

Also, is it very helpful to read cases that are cited in the cases we're reading? Ugh. I have so much to read already.

Anyone know how difficult it is to get a 1L internship in Columbus?

Current Law Students / Study group
« on: September 20, 2007, 07:56:56 PM »
My most recent source of angst: What if I can't find a study group? I've heard they're beneficial and all that (kinda sucks, since I'm more of a loner when it comes to studying. I don't like listening to other people before tests, etc.). I'm just afraid I'll be left at a disadvantage if I don't find anyone.

Current Law Students / where the heck to start with outline
« on: September 09, 2007, 04:19:08 PM »
So I was going to start my civ pro outline tonight, but I have no idea where to start. I started making the main headings and subheads from my casebook's contents, but when I opened class and reading notes, I didn't know what the heck to do.


Am I supposed to just attempt to synthesize everything together? This is nuts.

Current Law Students / is this normal?
« on: August 25, 2007, 06:54:21 PM »
OK, I know last week was only the first week of law school and the workload will probably pick up.

I don't know if I just over-hyped it or if I'm doing something wrong, but I don't really feel like it's as unmanageable as everyone says.

I'm keeping up with the reading, briefing the cases, and even typing up notes from the casebooks, as well as looking to primers and study aids to make sure I understand certain concepts. And I kinda still feel like there should be something else I'm doing.

What does everyone else's studying consist of on a day-to-day basis?
