General Board / Re: Used Textbooks, best place to buy?
« on: August 13, 2006, 01:38:01 PM »
If you do a general search, I think on google, for a particular textbook, it comes up with a website that compares prices from internet sites...such as amazon, half.ebay, and others.

General Board / Re: To law students 29+

Yeah --- I did have a question...do you hate women?

(All the rest of the things that you talked about made total sense...)

I also work full-time and am going to law school part-time (starting this week). I also have children and am a single mom....total of 9 kids (including 2 grown) 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 15, 19, 22. (The youngest 5 are adopted...before somebody makes some nasty comments!)

My kids are great...my oldest daughter (22) moved into the apartment complex next to my house to help out. I have three master's degrees and have a successful career. I have always been in school with kids.

I think that it completely depends on how you have everything organized and how you have things in place in terms of your support systems.

A spouse or partner can be a liability or he/she can be an asset. The same goes for kids.

I am also going to be attending part-time and keeping my full-time job.

I spend some time talking with other students who are in the same situation, including students who are not graduated and have passed the bar.

Most of them had the same schedule as was mentioned by the previous poster and it worked for them.

General Board / Re: When should one start LEEWS?
« on: July 17, 2006, 05:54:19 PM »
I am starting school in the fall. I have been reading torts and contracts and have some previous legal knowledge...I am glad that I did because it helped me understand the LEEWS and to be able to do the exercises with a better understanding.

I am mid-way through the program right now and have read several books, including the exam writing books out there like "Getting to Maybe" and in my opinion, the LEEWS is a great program that will be very helpful....we'll see what happens at the end of the first semester.

General Board / Re: Whittier Law School?
« on: July 17, 2006, 05:51:55 PM »
I know that the dean was really upset when Whittier was put on probation by the ABA. As a result, the school has a lot of "help" programs so that their students do well on the bar exam.

Hi --- I live in San Diego also and am actually friends with one of the city council members. I should have given him copies of some of your discussion points before the vote.

I a reformed smoker...quit in 1987...long time ago.

I have to say that going to the beach or parks with kids and babies is difficult because kids/babies pick up the cigarette butts that are almost everywhere littered on the ground. Yuck!

General Board / Re: Single Parent starting Law School

Wow Gina...that is a lot!

Is there any way to look at the schedule of the classes? I know that I am still debating if I should quit my job and survive on student loans with my kids...and go to school full time or to keep working and going to school at night.

The school that I will be attending has night classes and when I spoke with people they mentioned that they had class four nights per week...but when I looked at the actual schedule...you can go two nights from 4-8:45 or you may end up four nights, but you would have two days where you go from 6:30-8:45 and two other days where you go from 6-7:15....so it is not really "all night".

Do you know what I mean?

In going to school, I have had my kids be my best cheerleaders. You have to make sure that you set aside a special time for your child that will NOT be taken up with studies and that is his/her special time with mommie. That worked for me.

Hi, I am starting law school in the fall also. I am a single parent of six (though two are grown and out of the house already), but four live with me. I have a graduate degree already and have always been in school as a single parent. You can do it. You have to organized about your life and activities.

When I was a graduate student, I partnered with another single mom and we helped each other out.

My children know that when it is study time for mom that they need to leave me alone, unless it is an emergency.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Blue Print
« on: June 09, 2007, 10:27:03 AM »
I know people who took Blueprint and were very happy with their results. Also, I saw their class books, was very impressed. Also, they have great instructors.

Just my 5 cents.... Vera :)
