Law School Applications / Re: HLS CLASSES!

When do we get our schedules for HLS (ie professors, times, etc.) I want to do some background research of the professors so I know what they're like before I start.

If you get into HLS and enroll, you get your class schedule (with profs) in mid-to-late summer--I think sometime in July.

In related news, taking too much ritalin is apparently bad for you.

UGHHGHH!! That long!? Why would they not want to get it out sooner. Is there some other way to find out sooner??!?!?

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: The supplements thread.

I also used, as mentioned above, Acing Your First Year of Law School. I thought it was simple, no-nonsense advice. Here's the amazon link:

http://www.amazon.com/Acing-Your-First-Year-School/dp/0837714109/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1236084225&sr=1-1

It looks like they just put out a new edition. I'd say you'd be fine with the old one since it's only like 3 or 4 bucks (+shipping). It's the one I used and I doubt law school has changed that much.

OMG Thanks!!!!!

2L job search / Re: Pet Friendly Housing in DC?
« on: March 04, 2009, 12:12:52 AM »
Anyone summering in DC with a dog? I am, and am trying to find a roommate with the same situation.

What kinda dog is that julie?  Super cool looking.

Also, Dupont is not really a commute.  Don't live in Foggy Bottom.  There is nothing there and it is over priced.  You can walk from Dupont to where you will be working (most likely K street).

She's a cocker spaniel :) Thanks! Thanks all for the advice-- I think I will look at Dupont... I have lived on the VA side, but wanted to be closer to work this summer-- the metro is great, but the commute time is ridiculous.

This is crazy. It takes little time if any time at all because it's very easy you get on the blue/orange line, and sit. Six minutes later= work.

I work for a BIGLAW firm in DC and live in DC but I wish i lived in VA sometimes because it's more quiet.

I bought all the supplements today, and now I'm trying to figure out what tote to get. What do the "

thanks everyone! this is great. I bought glannon civ pro today, and it makes SO much sense. So basically e veryone moves to dismiss the tort for a lack of personal jurisdiction/subject matter/etc., right?

I have a lease expiring near some of the firms in that area (paul hastings, etc.) and can have dogs in my apartment but I was going to sleep there and do some pre-law school studying during the summer. for the rigth price, I'd move up to mass a little earlier

Can you link me to the stuff on this forum ??? ??? ??? ??? I really can't afford to miss out on pre-studying, my 1L friend told me it's important to do.

THANKS!

Browse and read using your mouse.  It takes one hand two fingers and eyes.  Try that!

I have done this and could not find what he was talking about. If you don'tw ant to help other posters either don't post, or don't visit a law school message board for advice. You're doing both, and wasting your time. Keep it up and you'll be at the bottom of your curve when you start. I'm already laughing at you.
