Incoming 1Ls / how much money do u need to make?
« on: June 19, 2006, 08:45:47 AM »
things really have changed in the last 20 or so years.  used to be a modest blue collar job worked by one person in the house would get you a decent middle class (if not at least a lower middle class lifestyle).  nowadays though, things are a little different, it typically requires 2 working people in the house with white collar jobs to get that middle class lifestyle.

so how much money does it take to live a comfortable life.  i know it varies based on where your living, but what do u think the difference is.  like how much does it take to live comfortably in some different cities:

Incoming 1Ls / Re: How much use will my laptop get?

if your getting a docking station do u have to get one that is compatible with your laptop?  like if i have a HP notebook do i have to get a docking station compatible with my specific HP model or can i get any docking station that is PC compatible?

do u guys really find onenote to be that useful in class?  i'm fairly computer literate and while i dont have a tablet notebook the program seems a little confusing and fairly involved. 

i'm used to pen and paper for notes so anything more than that seems a little extreme for me but then again i havent experienced law school yet.  is taking notes in law school that much different that you need a computer and seperate program to do it?

what is one Onenote?

do u get angry at people who dont have to pay for school?  knowing that they will graduate with no debt and will pretty much be able to do what they want without having to worry about paying off 100+K in debt?  i know plenty of people that get angry and say stuff about it to different people, but i dont quite understand it.  what are those people supposed to do, decline their parents/grandparents/whoever's offer to pay for school and say, no i'll take out all the loans myself?  given the option i think everyone would take someone paying for their education over taking out loans, so what is the anger about?

or am i confusing anger with jealousy or resentment or something? 

as for me, i could care less about everyone elses financial situation.  everyone has their own issues to deal with, so the only thing that bothers me is hearing people talk about it nonstop.

Incoming 1Ls / Package from your school
« on: June 14, 2006, 12:12:07 PM »
the other day i got a package in the mail from my prospective law school.  enclosed was a book and dvd.  the book is john grisham's 'a time to kill' and the dvd was also law related.  we are eventually going to have an online discussion about the book/dvd. 

i was wondering if anyone else has gotten a package like this.  i thought it was kind of a good idea and a unique little way to get you in the legal mindset, even if its from an entertainment point of view. 

i just didnt know if this was common or unique to my school

cooley is a niche kind of school.  people make fun of it but i gotta say that with their high attrition rate those who do graduate are probably legitimately intelligent people.  perhaps the competition isnt as steep at cooley as it may be at alot of other schools, but i wont discount the quality of the students that actually graduate from there. 

i also feel that most of the people that are going to cooley know what they are getting.  they understand that its not a highly ranked school and the rep isnt so hott.  i'm actually impressed with their bar pass rate.  i think that that number is really underlooked when it comes to ranking the quality of a school.  alot of law schools spend 3 years preparing you for that specific test, so when they only have 50% pass rates it makes u challenge the quality of the school. 

i might assume these are first time test takers too.  simply because of the USNews statistics on their bar passage rate at 100%.  that would basically mean that there werent any people who failed and were retaking the test. 

Incoming 1Ls / Elon Law School

Elon University is starting a new Law School this year.  i havent heard much about it, alot more talk has been focused on Drexel.  and while i think drexel will have a brighter future, i was wondering if anyone is planning on attending Elon or if anyone has heard about the progress of the school
