Current Law Students / Re: Tips for how to not dwell

If the beer doesn't help, you could try lowering your grade-expectation standards. That could ease some of the stress.

friends with privileges.

In class, UNtimed? That would be insane. You would have people ordering food to be delivered to the room so they didn't have to leave...

This Spring, I've had everything from week long take home, to one day take home, to open book and closed book in-class exams.

They are all painful in their own special ways, but I think I like the one-day take-home the best. Can sort of work at my own pace, but not have to go insane for an entire week....

Transferring / Re: Brooklyn to Columbia?

Get a 4.0, you are set.

But it might be a jump from a 2.5 gpa in undergrad to a 4.0 in law school. (not that I know anything about your undergrad story of course)

Good luck!

Seems about right to me.

Current Law Students / Re: Law review too much time?

"It doesn't help you be a better lawyer but nevertheless firms look at it as a proxy for excellence so you just suck it up and do it."

It also might be a decent gauge of whether you'll be able to handle the overwhelming and excruciatingly-tiresome work that many BigLaw firms will be expecting you to do as an Associate.

If you can handle law review and keep a smile on your face, maybe you can handle BigLaw, too. :)

Transferring / Not enough units?!?
« on: April 02, 2007, 11:06:15 AM »
I see a lot of schools have a minimum for units completed (around 28 or so) before you can transfer.

I did PT Fall/FT Spring, and am a few units short, but will be taking a class this Summer.

Anybody know if schools will even consider my application before my Summer units are officially added?

It's a nasty dilemma, because by then I'm sure they'll have filled all of their transfer spots...

Current Law Students / Re: Does being in law school make you paranoid?

Being paranoid is half the fun of law school!

Which "friends" actually want you to fail, which teacher is going to cold-call you when you least expect it, and yes, of course, which bag is full of fireworks?

It's an awesome ride.

Put simply: Your chances of getting into Stanford are very small, but if you don't apply, your chances of getting in are zero.

Current Law Students / Re: What does the SBA do at your school?

Wait a sec, you have a Fall *and* a Spring Prom?!?

Now see, my school only has a Spring one...does USNWR tell you about that? Nooooo.

Be proud of your SBA and the *two* (two?!?!) proms they put on for you!
