General Board / Re: California Western or Florida Coastal?
« on: December 14, 2006, 03:38:08 PM »
I had $12K at FC and it only paid half my tuition. Not sure what the tuition at Cal Western is. That said, I've lived in both San Diego and Jax and while I do like Jax, I like San Diego infinintely better. So I would go where you think you would enjoy your 3 years since all other things about the schools are relatively equal. Well, thats not true. FCSL is only 10 years old and still finding its way. Cirriculum is constantly changing, they are letting in bigger and bigger classes with every semester, something a lot of people (myself included) don't think is very condusive to fostering the best student body you can. Cal Western is older, mor eestablished, has a name for itself in the reigon, but I don't know anything about its cirriculum. I do know several graduates from there and they seem happy with their education.

My professors all stress "ANSWER THE QUESTION ASKED"
Generally the question is one that can be answered in the issue/rule/argument/counter format but make sure you read what the question is asking and answer it...

It depends. My bible was the E&E, but there is another professor who specifically said she disagreed with a lot of stuff in there. To me it was great on policy and stuff, which my prof was HUGE on.

Transferring / Re: Transfer process

The only think I will disagree on is the letters of rec. I didn't use the LSDAS service...some schools said it would have been fine, but several specified to send everything directly to the law school themselves. I couldn't even do the online apps with LSDAS because I was a spring transfer and the websites for the particular schools didnt have it set up for LSDAS applications for spring.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Property - Covenants and stuff....

I would think the garage would be a fixture, therefore part of the property.  Once T moves out, he no longer has rights to it... otherwise it would be a personal covenenat and you cant have those..covenants have to touch and concern the land contained in the original leasehold in order for the covenant to run. If you try to separate the extra garage from the land it was connected with, it no longer 'touch and concerns' the land??

Bye bye Tier 4!!

Hey, does anyone know how important my grades are for this final semester? I mean obviously I still have to pass, but do they care if I get A's or C's? Or just complete the damn classes?
