General Board / Re: What was the hardest thing about your 1L?
« on: June 05, 2005, 11:25:29 PM »
The hardest thing for me to get used to was to acknowledge the fact that I couldn't predict jack sh!t.  Classes that I understood the best & knew I did the best on the final - turned out to be my worst grade.  And vice versa.

Exactly! I'm a 3L and that still happens to me occasionally. Really pisses me off!

Watch it. That link that was provided said that if you are a current student and consolidate now, you will lose your 6 month grace period. It made it sound like you will have to start paying as soon as school ends instead of giving you 6 months after graduation. That could be a big deal depending on your situation.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Binders-size???

No, it's not excess especially if you are just going to use them at home and not carry them to school. I can easily use that size just for one class.

I always have a large binder for each class, but I keep it at home and use it to organize my class notes, handouts and outlines. I use thin folders and only take what I need for class on that particular day. The larger binders are just too much to lug around along with the books and laptop.

Talk to a rep from your state bar association and call an attorney specializing in this area.

General Board / Re: Laptops for exams?

We can do both and I would prefer to do the exam on laptop, but I haven't been able to bring myself to do it yet. I have this fear of something going wrong during the exam and losing everything in the middle of it.

General Board / Re: Should I file Bankruptcy...

Bankruptcy and financial problems are a huge red flag for the character and fitness review. You need to talk to your state bar and an attorney.

General Board / Re: Active, engaged learner or gunner?

It is really just a fine line. The gunners are the ones who like to hear themselves talk and basically just take over the class for no reason other than to hear themselves talk. If you honestly don't understand a concept, ask a question. If you feel you have something good to contribute, answer a question. People don't normally have a problem with that. It is the other end of the extreme that causes the problems.

I agree. I think it really depends on your needs. I have a house to myself and I love it. I do better alone and I think getting things done in law school is much easier for me that way. However, there are people who like it better if they live with others.
