Thanks, Bosco and Claire.  That did cheer me up.

Two other questions:

When's the first bar review and where is it?  A 3L told me they generally hold them up North, which makes sense because I visited Jimmy's and Ida Noyes are they're both meh.

Will we ever get a formal list of clubs?  How do you know when and where to join?

Today's WSJ makes me a sad panda.   :-[  I hope this doesn't affect next year's recruiting too badly.  I wish I had Baird so I could say, at least, that I want to practice bankruptcy or something.

Does anyone have any reassuring words to cheer everyone up?

blsa is password protected and i never received any lawannounce. :[

They sent it last night, so, if you don't see it, I would contact BLSA directly or talk to someone who knows the password.

I don't think that any of the 1Ls are stressed per se.  It's a mixture of anticipation and nervousness, if anything.

Anyway, I'll probably ask about outlines a little later, but any of them would be appreciated.

Besides BSLA, is there any other outline resource?  I know that you discourage their use, but I studied using outlines in undergraduate (I outlined most lecture courses by topic, using the syllabus), and I think that they help me learn.

Good luck in school tomorrow.   :P

My neighbor made a three page Greene brief.  I think that's somewhat over-the-top, as he admitted as well.  And everyone is making me nervous today with their coffee and elaborate preparation; one guy has been studying for hours at this point.  I just read the cases once and I'll play it by ear.

When will we learn to mimic judicial reasoning?  Does it click at some point?  Most of the Torts reasoning seems completely off-the-wall.  I can't understand why the court rules that one thing happens to be battery and another thing is not battery, unless there's an element (intention, transfer intent) that seems to jive with the fact pattern.

So I should be looking at the procedural history in great detail?

I've been extracting the rule of law and identifying the issue, but a few of my NG friends are going into the reasoning like crazy, and I don't know whether I should follow their lead.

The BLSA outlines cover CivPro, but I don't see Torts, Elements, and Property.  I'm reading through the CivPro ones right now and I think they're a great study guide; I can zero in on important elements instead of being derailed by details.  Does anyone know, or can anyone send me, where I can find outlines for my other three classes?  I have Gersen, Strauss, and Strahilevitz.

Thanks!
