Yes, it is that bad. I'm seeing inexperienced law grads competing with experienced attorneys for entry-level (no jd/licensure reqs) part-time positions.  And who gets hired? It's the girl with a high-school education, because you know an attorney is going to be bitter filing papers and answering phones for $10/hr.

It sucks, but that's the reality. You've either got to excel at school and get yourself placed somewhere, or God has to favor you in some other way.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: spouse and kids

yeah, during finals this Spring, I fought with my wife daily. I got four night classes and 30 hours/week of work. School is 1 hour away from my home. No energy! If I had kids too... I don't even know. (my wife is 19, so its like dealing with a kid sometimes, but don't tell her  ;)).

I mean, youve just gotta flow with it as best you can. You can't schedule with all these responsibilities unless you're some sort of control freak, and if you are, then you're dying inside with all of this. You just have to take some time here and there to give them love and attention. Also, talk to people in law school. Sometimes it makes you feel lonely and drains your motivation that no one in law school knows what you're going through at home, and no one at home knows what you're going through at law school. You've gotta talk to other lawyers and law school students, and you've gotta deliver some love to your family members.

Its hard, but find some motivation within in you for both family and law school, and keep going

In the book Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, the author suggests that gay men who are in the closet date Asian women because Asian women look like attractive men (I think something about gender neutrality/androgyny).

I'm not endorsing that suggestion.  Just thought you should know.

So much in my life is starting to make sense now! :D

"due to the number of reports we have received from students, we felt that a notice to all students in the class was warranted."

I think it is likely that people really just have to take a whizz for the reasons mentioned above (caffeine or m3th or whatever). People are all on edge at my school too, filing complaints and even baiting other students. I remember high school wasn't so ridiculous as law school. Too much time with each other + a lot of them are all on facespace or twitter posting their supercool pix from the weekend drunkfest.

its just a natural phenom.. asian chicks dig white dudes and white dudes dig asian chicks. Like bees and flowers and cross pollination o whatevs.

EDIT: oh yeah, and yes you're a racist.

I don't think there is a correlation at all. It's just that those are the times that stick out in a student's memory.

Just the nature of these types of exams. If you just every comment your professor makes and memorize the 40-page, 10-font outline that includes these notes, you can totally perform well and walk out knowing that you did so.

But we don't really do that.... we know the laws and elements and go in there with dreams and aspirations.
