General Board / Re: Petition for readmission - help?
« on: October 23, 2008, 11:09:48 PM »
Denny,

I was reading your initial explanation why you did so bad on the tests and one question is still lurking in my mind. Did you take any sample exams during your preparation time?

It seems like you were really devoted to classroom participation and the whole socializing thing. You mentioned that you studied from outlines and supplements in a study group, comments to others, explained concepts, etc.  It all seems like your ADD condition prevents you from focusing on something for a long time (let's say 2-3 hours during an exam).

The reason I am asking this question is to learn from your mistakes, and also to make you think if you would be able to sit on the Bar exam for the whole day writing and analyzing something without ever talking to anyone. When you become an attorney, you would spend hours drafting briefs and motions, doing extensive research, while again never having to talk to anyone for at least a couple of hours. Can you do it?

General Board / Re: 4th tier law school success

When you walk through the corridors of many schools (including 4th tier), you'll see plenty of their alumni who became judges, justices, etc. Doesn't yours have the same?  ::)

I'm still deciding whether it's worth to to go with Studydesk for note taking and briefing.

If you are a law student, you most likely have free Westlaw. Use their BL dictionary.
