Current Law Students / Re: For those in the dungeon.
« on: January 27, 2007, 10:19:23 AM »
I apologize if my sentence structure was not perfect. All I am saying is that it is rather futile to complain about something that you voluntarily attending.  If it such a bad state of affairs do something else, otherwise deal with the choices you have made. We are all in the same boat, and those that are not happy have to something to figure out why they are not happy.  Too many people at my school, and many others I am sure, treat law school as the cross they have to bear and do not look toward it as an opportunity many people could never imagine.  Instead of feeling bad for yourself because you did not properly budget your time enough to go out on your birthday, try taking a minute to understand where you are currently in your life and be happy for what you have already achieved and what you still have left to achieve. Too many people take the fact they are able to pursue doctorate level degrees that will provide them with a profession that they will never have to worry about feeding their families or being outsourced for granted. If I offended anyone with my prior insensitive comment I am sorry. Feeling sorry for yourself is only going to continue your downward spiral.  If it is that bad you're early enough in the semester where you can leave your books at your apartment, and go to the nearest city with a few friends have a good weekend starting tomorrow.  Sometime that is what you need. Do not lose yourself in the process. If you are unprepared for a class on Monday, sign out and borrow someone's brief. You'll feel better because you took time to yourself.

Are you for real?

Damn. That section is getting full

Transferring / Moral dilema question for those who have transferred
« on: January 26, 2007, 08:57:05 PM »
I transferred into the spring class.... I have 2 weeks under me.. all is well..

Just got an email from my old school inviting me onto law review (I graded on).

Question: Is there a way to put this invite onto my resume under the stuff I did at my previous school, like moot court and my book awards and stuff? (which I am still keeping on my resume for obvious reasons)

side note, I wont have the opportunity to write on to my new school's law review until after spring finals...

I want to throw something at his motorcade every time it passes my apartment building, but alas, I don't.

You are a stronger person than I....

Current Law Students / Re: Which class is case-based?

Civ Pro is all rules, punctuated by a few landmark cases here and there. Your bible is the FRCP and whatever cases your prof tells you to remember.
Con Law is all cases interpreting the Constitution.

You decide how you want to handle it

Must be tenured.

*snort* There was a group at my school that sponsored a viewing party, complete with beer. Too bad I was in class, though several classmates on the break went and helped themselves to some beer which they proceeded to drink in class. They even gave one to the prof.

Things like you like cooking and what not should go in your hobbies section at the bottom. I think they are important becasue they are conversation starters. Every single interview and callback particularily, commented on something in my hobbies section. Good ice breaker. Just make sure you are listing things you can actually speak intelligently about because they WILL ask you about them, particularily the more unusual ones. For example, I never got asked about my love of yoga, but I was always asked about the kickboxing or the other odd thing I had listed there.

Current Law Students / Re: any T4 to low T1 transfer stories
« on: January 23, 2007, 09:40:43 PM »
I went from a T4 (craptastic, bad-no reputation, at least in my opinion) to a high T2 and a low T1. I am attending the T1 (USNWR #42).
I had a 3.68 GPA, rank was top 1%, 2 book awards, moot court, TA, Dean's Scholar.

Current Law Students / Re: Do Grade Mistakes Happen?
« on: January 22, 2007, 08:07:42 PM »
Definitely check! I've had mistakes happen and it changed my grade for the better (made the difference in me booking the class or not, too)
That same prof said she is surprised that more students dont check because that stuff DOES happen, more often than we would like. I've never had a professor look at me sideways for wanting to review exams (even for that very purpose..many suggest it)
