Job Search / Re: Summer abroad during 1L summer?
« on: December 19, 2008, 08:34:11 AM »
If you want to be a firm lawyer, it would be better to have a firm job your 1L summer (and you'd wind up with an extra $30k+).  But most of the time the study abroad sign-up date is after most employers hire, so you could look at it as a back-up option.

I agree: use it as a back up. We have a summer program abroad, but a couple of my profs told me that it pretty much looks like you took a vacation instead of working your 1L summer. I'm sure some employers will see value in it though; especially given your interest in international law.

If you discuss your drug use on these boards, you should probably make your email private (especially if it contains your last name and/or initials).

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: challenge to urm's
« on: December 16, 2008, 07:59:22 PM »
I challenge all urm's to leave their race/ethnicity blank.  This way we will finally have a cycle where only the deserving get in.  As for the argument that urm status has put you at a disadvantage I point out that your aren't attending poorly funded city schools, you are attending colleges, which for the most part have amazing resources and funding.  The only urm's that should mark their status are those who have actually been slaves.  It is time that everyone should be judged on their merits and not on a rascist policy like AA.  Although I feel my challenge is just I am sure it will not be accepted, to many people are ok with acception handouts.

Please tell me this was part of your personal statement.

Best invention since the legal pad? I submit that it is. Seriously, I've gone through 5 packs since I started studying for finals. My outlines and books all have flags for quick reference to every topic.

The original Tucket Max isn't even that good.

I thought it was a good read.

Current Law Students / Re: Adverse Possession

If the request to vacate is ignored, and the actual owner doesn't come onto the land it shouldn't disrupt AP....I think.

Who's marking off the boundary line? If the AP is marking off the appropriate boundary line, he's acknowledging that he is not the actual owner and he wouldn't meet the hostility requirement anymore. If the owner comes onto what's being adversely possessed and marks the boundary line, I think that would also disrupt the AP...

Anyways, I guess I don't know the answer.

I have Property next semester! What am I in for?

It's my easiest class so far, but I've only had the first half of the class.

I just defeased an entire plate of nachos. There is no remainder. There might be a reversion later though because I ate way too many, way too fast.
