Widener U School of Law / Re: Class of 2009
« on: August 14, 2006, 08:06:25 PM »
Hi everyone,

Thought I'd let you all know that I was just offered a spot in the part time program at Rutgers-Camden and decided to accept it.  I let Widener know that I won't be attending.  I hope you all do great at Widener and are very successful and happy in the future.  Good luck.

Ward

Good Luck Ward!!!!

As for everyone else...let the games begin!!!!!  See you all tomorrow!

1st Assignments are up on the website, if anyone's interested

I would have to agree with all of the above.  Taking the shot costs you nothing but the extra work.  Yet, if you make it, it will pay dividends for years after law school.  If you try and don't make it, your no worse off then you were before.  I would say go for it.

Transferring / Re: Should I transfer?

I would have to think you should transfer.  Michigan is a very well known school across the nation.  Obviously, it would do better in the midwest, but I would have to think that you would do well anywhere with a JD from Michigan, especially as opposed to a JD from Creighton.

On the bottom of the orientation schedule, it says "Written assignments due by 5 p.m." under Friday the 18th

Sadly, I can't join you guys at Scrimmages on the 11th, but I'm up for the following Friday after our written assignments are due.

Current Law Students / Re: Traffic ticket in NJ

It used to be that, when you got a ticket in NJ, you could show up to court, plead guilty and pay court costs and the full fine and you would only get one point on your license. This way, you wouldn't have to pay the insurance surcharges. However, it turns out that judges were doing this for everyone, including those with multiple DUI's and horrendous driving records, so the state legislature passed a bill outlawing the practice.  I'm not sure how much this affects your particular situation, but its the only "ticket fixing" that I've heard of in NJ.

I'll be coming every day from Somers Point, NJ, which is about an hour and twenty minuets away.  My wife has a really awesome job and we just can't afford for her to move away from it.

On another note, today is my last, official day at work.  I have to say that I'm much more nostalgic than I thought I'd be.  Anyway, when is everyone here done with their jobs?

Hi all, I just got in through the TAP program... this means I spent 6 weeks of my summer living in the dorms and going to Civ Pro, Legal Methods and Torts.  Classes were no joke so get ready...  Some quick things... Shipley's rooms are huge compared to anything I've lived in.  I just got my room assignment today and I'm in Concord this time. If you haven't got your housing assignments I could def call ASAP (talk to Chris Burrell I think)  Make sure you get the most recent Torts book (11th edition). Any questions just ask!

Who were your professors and how were the exams?

Does your school award credit for LR?  I know some schools do.  If you can get academic credit for LR, then you could do both.

If not, I would say LR.  In looking at NALP's directory, every employer (it seems like, anyway) that does OCI requires law review.
