Pretty much without exception the students that was most active in class also ended up getting the best GPAs. If not being "that guy" is more important to you, fair enough.

Yeah, Dave dropped the ball on his editor pick. Either way... do listen to them, the stories are very real, just understand that not everything is the school's fault. There's a lot of people in law school who doesn't have the personality to be lawyers, back in the days the Kingsfields of law school did a good job at weeding them out, nowadays everyone gets to graduate, no matter if they should or not.

Been a few years now, but I'd have to say Crim. Civ Pro was pure torture.

Classes are more than borderline irrelevant to the exams. If you understand the black letter law and you're able to write analytically, you're golden.

Could you elaborate on this a little more??  Just trying to get insight from someone who has actually taken a final and not just my musings.

Best elaboration I can give you is www.leews.com

I'm not really a big fan of all these people who want to sell you *&^% promising you to do better in law school, but the LEEWS is worth investing in.

Essentially, you need to master IRAC, or some alternative thereof. The case debating you do in class, whether you do socratic method or not, isnt really similar to what you do on the exam, and that is rather unfortunate. Anyway, it's really pretty simple 1) find the issues - and there is going to be a shitload of them, exam hypos are pretty ridiculous, nothing like a real case, but even so, you need to find them. 2) Analyze them. Forget about reaching the "right conclusion". If you can make a good argument for why killing kittens on 4th of July, that's ok.

Don't listen particularly much to either camps. Lawyers are doing just fine. No, any JD from any school will not automatically equal six figures. But anyone with a JD that works at TGI Friday's has seriously screwed up totally on their own accord and cannot blame it on their degree or their school.
