Studying for the LSAT / Re: giving birth during the LSAT exam.

I thought you were going to say some woman actually gave birth during the LSAT in the testing room. That would be a cool story. Yours is good too though. =)

I think the true beauty of OneNote is the way it helps you organize all your material.  At the beginning of my first semester, I kept going back and forth between Word and OneNote.  I tried to figure out what was the best way to organize my notes.  The problem with Word is figuring out a good system to store your files and the method.  OneNote is good because you can create a folder for each class, and within that folder you can have subdivisions (I used "class notes"; "outlines").  Within those subdivisions, you have separate pages.  So under "class notes," I organized my material by topic (MUCH BETTER THAN ORGANIZING BY DATE).  Under "outlines," I had different pages of "long outline," "short outline," "practice hypotheticals," etc.

Flipping between classes, sections, page is absolutely seamless.  You don't have to go to "Open" look for files or anything.  You're able to search all your folders easily.  It's great.

HOWEVER, one problem that I have with OneNote is printing.  If something is organized on a page of OneNOte, you can't break that page up for printing.  For instance, say in one your Con Law folder, you have a subsection group entitled "outlines."  And under "outlines," you have a page that says "long outline."  That long outline could very well be an X amount of printing pages (let's just assume 20).  If you want to print the long outline, but only want the first five pages, you CANNOT select this as a printing option.  It will only let you print the all of the pages within that single page of "long outline."  Of course, there are work arounds such as copying and pasting what you need into a clean sheet and then printing that portion, but it's still aggravating.

Or you just select what you want to print, go to print, and click the 'Selection' radio button. Then it prints what you selected.

Yeah, school name can make a big difference...depending on what you want to do. Again, I think a transfer might be warranted in your case, mainly because you don't want to stay in the midwest and a T2 in the midwest won't be great for getting a job on the coasts.

hmm, well given your geographic preferences i think i'd actually recommend that you transfer. make sure you actually want to be in DC though. if you truly want entertainment law, you had better go to somewhere like USC/UCLA or some other CA school. you won't be gettin much entertainment law in DC.

Seriously, we should just ignore posts like this. No commenting on people's chances without an LSAT score.

To hopefulsplitter: stop wasting time thinking about your chances at school A and school B and go study for the LSAT. You will thank me. I give this advice from experience.

I also vote for a retake for the reasons stated by Slumbutton.

What's your class rank? Do you know if you made law review yet (if not when will you know)? How close to DC and LA is your school? What do you want to do career-wise?
