1L job search / Re: public interest job vs judicial internship... advice?
« on: January 29, 2007, 07:27:32 PM »
did you get a peggy browning fellowship? i just got one of those.

personally, i would take the workers' rights job. but then, i'm pretty certain i want to work in labor or some other public interest field. and i'm much happier when i'm doing what i believe is good work.

General Board / Re: 3.5 first semester
« on: January 29, 2007, 01:28:07 AM »
I earned a 3.5 exactly, in my first semester.  A-s and B+s balanced out.  Thus, I'm wondering where approximately a 3.5 puts me in the class overall with a 3.2 median.  My school doesn't tell us this, so I'm looking for feedback from others... thanks!

what school do you go to?

General Board / Re: talking about grades?
« on: January 27, 2007, 06:36:43 PM »
the atmosphere at my school is not tremendously competitive, and most of my friends and i shared our grades with each other pretty freely, with no evident jealousies or nastinesses. except that i got a little annoyed about getting lower grades than the guy who keeps demonstrating in class that he missed the point of the discussion.

Socratic Method / Re: True Horror Story

it would be wrong to smack such a person. but it's not wrong to want to. i'm totally self-important and have strongly-held opinions, but i know better than to use class time to assert it actively or passively.

gunners raise their hand to express moral outrage whenever a legal principle is not to their liking.

If it makes you feel better, here's a true quote from my 2L Evidence class (~ 150 students) which thankfully wasn't directed to me:

"If you ever say that to a judge, I hope he tells you to shut the f**ck up and sit down."

So don't feel that bad.

i've heard:

"if you were this unprepared for court, you could be sued for malpractice"

(not directed at me, thaksfully.)

General Board / Re: class rank (statistically speaking)
« on: January 24, 2007, 07:43:10 AM »
problem: estimating the standard deviation by dividing the range by 4 ought to assume taking the highest and lowest *actual* grades, and if i remember my stats class correctly, only after eliminating outliers. the method suggested here takes the highest and lowest *possible* grades. unless there are non-outliers at the top and bottom of the curve, this will overstate the standard deviation, and give you a lower class rank than you actually have.
