General Board / Re: Joy in law?
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:20:24 PM »
I like school better than working, but then again I am a generally lazy person.  I do what I need to get by.  Most nights I have good intentions of working, but I wind up doing nothing and vegging out with the SO instead.  I watch a lot of movies, go out a lot, and I have plenty of time.  The only time period that was really bad was the beginning of 2L fall (with interviewing/flybacks, journal, classes) and right before something was due.

This is what I did for a lot of nights after the initial month of adrenaline wore off. After getting around median 1st semester I have realize that in order for me to suceed that I must kill all the happiness in my life.

General Board / Re: 2.0 - Should I drop out?

2 B-'s on a 3.0 curve isn't that big of a deal.  One B+ or A- can pop you right back up.

yeah Im not at some world beater school like a lot of the people here. Im at a school ranked 60-80. Im just freaked out and shocked. But yeah I guess you right, I just prob wont get a paying job this summer.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Which Rutgers is better?

I'm at Rutgers Newark and I'm having a great experience there. IMO it comes down to where you wanna work and what part of Jersey do you wanna spend 3 years around. I know Newark is pretty bad but the area around the campus is much nicer and the PATH makes it very easy to get around NNJ and into NYC. As soon as I pulled up to visit Camden I know that it wasnt for me though,

agreed just did that today and I feel comfortable with my performance. I dont think memorizing would have helped at all.

General Board / Re: Who leaves exam room earlier???
« on: December 16, 2008, 03:30:20 PM »
Yeah someone left my torts exam 1 hour early today and I just looked up in amazement. I honestly felt a little insulted that this guy figured he could write a better exam then the rest of us in 3/4 the time. In torts there are always issues you can flesh out more, or cases you can add etc. What is the point of leaving 60 minutes early. Is that 60 minutes worth a potential grade step?

General Board / Re: who's pulling an all nighter tonight???

Same here, I wanna pull an all nighter for the extra time to look stuff over. But I can bring my notes into the exam and I feel that the extra couple of hours of sleep will be more important(my my mind will gifure stuff out while im sleeping). Im going to sleep at 3 and waking up and 8. Then reviewing for an an hour and a half..

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Unity of Time Help

thats what I thought at first but cali.org says that there is no unity of time because they vested at different times.

Studying and Exam Taking / Unity of Time Help
« on: December 11, 2008, 01:26:28 PM »
In this Hypo A and C have no unity of time, right? My definition for unity of time is that the interest of each joint tenant must be acquired or vest at the same time. What do they mean by acquire, is it just another word for vest in this interest.

O to A and B for life. At B's demise then to C

B dies 5 years later

Since C acquires his right 5 years later there is no unity of time? And A and C are thus tenants in common
