my 1L classes ranged from 55 minutes to 1:10. almost all of my 2L classes are 2 hours each twice a week.
Ditto for UMN.
I'm trying to outline provocation and grading down to manslaughter, and every minute feels like an eternity. I'm really not sure why I hate Crim so much, but I do. Maybe too much of the doctrine is intuitive, or the class discussions were a bit much (we had units that made everyone cringe), but I really really don't like Crim.
Anyway. What would the MPC say about my feelings? Objective or subjective standard?
none of which would you want to go to...
I am new to this board, and am beginning law school at a T14 school in the fall. I have read so many conflicting opinions on what (or often what not) to read and study during the months leading up to the first day of classes.
Specifically, I have seen opinions ranging from following the Planet Law School course to a T, all the way down to "don't read anything at all" before starting law school.
Can someone either point me to a thread discussing this, or share their opinion? Thanks so much.
You might find this interesting, but the Princeton Review has a section on their website that notes the average starting salary for particular law schools. I know you should probably only take this with a grain of salt, but still...
I've added a few schools you didn't mention, just for the sake of comparison....
According to the site, the average starting salary of a Columbia grad is $145,000...not too shabby.
The average starting salary for a U of Baltimore grad is $62,670.
The average starting salary of a UDC grad is $55,250.00...however, in-state tuition is only $7,350! That's very affordable!
And the average starting salary of a Cooley grad is $47,500.
So...take that as you may.
