General Board / Reputation Experiment
« on: October 08, 2004, 01:27:06 PM »
Hi all.

I like to test things out on this board before using them on the pre-law board.  I'm testing a reputation system right now - and I'd like your thoughts.

A lot of people seem to want to increase their status by posting a lot.  It's good that people post a lot, but quality would be better than quantity.  Right now there's no reward (ie status) for posting quality - helping others, being creative / funny, etc.

The reputation system should give people something to aspire to besides "can I be one of the top 10 most frequent posters?"  There's a reputation number now in everyone's profile, and you can modify other people's numbers by commending or defaming them.

What does everyone think of this system?  Do you like it?  What should the titles be? (Should it be called "reputation" or something else?  Would you rather "applaud" or "commend"?  I was trying to think of legal phrases and "defame" is all I could come up with - suggestions welcome)  How many posts should one need to participate?  (don't want people making fake accounts just to commend themselves)

« on: September 07, 2004, 08:00:09 PM »
Hi all,

I'm looking for a few people to promote the student's of this site section at their law schools.  This is an easy 20 minute job that just requires putting flyers in mailboxes.  As compensation, I'm offering the shirt of your choice from www.tortfeasor.com.

Please send me a note if your interested.  Let me know what school you go to as well.

Boston U / BU Apartment Available
« on: July 23, 2004, 06:56:45 PM »
Hi all Ė

If anyone plans on going to BU this year and still needs a place to live, this may be for you: there are two rooms available in my old apartment.  The apartment is perfect for BU law students.  Itís just 7 minutes walk to the school, and itís right on the T for trips downtown.  Itís in a good neighborhood too Ė with a couple bars and restaurants, a big movie theatre, grocery store, staples, etc.

Everyone is moving out except for my roommate Chris.  Heís a 2004 BU law grad who will be working as a judicial clerk.

The rent is $1066 per month.  Itís a little pricey, but youíll save loads of time not having to take the T in from Allston / Brighton.  Thereís free laundry here and thereís no realtorís fee.  Itís a nice building with hardwood floors, a massive fridge, etc.  There is lots and lots of space.

If youíre interested, thereís more information at the link below.  Act fast because Chris is off to Ireland after the bar exam and he needís to get people sorted out quickly.  I know the fact that BU starts in late August often creates a problem with all these Sept. 1 leases.  We can probably work something out where you can move in early though.

General Board / Re: 3L summer jobs
« on: July 06, 2004, 08:20:51 PM »
It's typical not to work while studing for the bar.  Most people take the BarBri class which meets for 3-4 hours each day.  In addition, you're supposed to be studying 5-9 hours each day on your own (not sure that anyone actually does that much though).

General Board / Re: 2 L work?
« on: July 06, 2004, 08:19:13 PM »
The second year can be as time consuming as the first.  Classes can be a little easier, but with Journals, Moot Court, and interviews, one doesn't really have any more time than they did first-year.  That said, you're allowed to work - I don't think there are any ABA rules limiting your hours like there are for first-year.
