General Board / Re: Sage advice for soon to be 1L's

To the 2Ls and 3Ls who posted here:
When did the lightbulb turn on and did it turn on at different times for different classes? Would you say that your understanding of the class was a result of all the pieces fitting together in your mind or is it because you tried different studying/note taking methods and one of them actually worked?

Well I just moved to Dallas and won't know anyone at SMU so I'll give you a first hand account in the next week ;)

Thanks again for the info. Here is another question: How are the summer job prospects for an SMU 1L? Did you find a job that was law related? Was it paid? Over all, how is the career services department at SMU? BTW, I am not totally compulsive in person ;)

Thanks for the additional info, have any insight on what to expect during orientation? I still haven't received a schedule of events and I was curious if it is OK to go ahead and purchase books and get any other stuff out of the way (I already picked up my parking pass and I will probably get my ID tomorrow). As you can tell, I have nothing else better to do than to worry until classes begin ;) Thanks again.

Well I just looked at my schedule....I am in section 1 for all my classes except for Legal writing.

These are my profs/classes so far:

Civ Pro = Dorsaneo
Torts = Dyson
Property = Forrester
Contracts = P Rogers
Crim Law = Palacios
Legal Writing = STAFF

Any comments, suggestions, last rites? There were two instructor names listed for each class so I am assuming Amberson is a TA of some sort.

BTW, I know not all SMU undergrads are stuck up, just the majority (I went to Baylor so I can definetely relate) ;)

I am guessing this will probably be professor specific, but do you know what commercial outlines/legal flash cards most students use? I'm not planning on buying anything before I get my feet wet, but I want to keep an eye out on Ebay for any good deals (being that I am already broke). Oh and what is the best bookstore on campus? I knew which bookstores were cheaper at Baylor, but I wasnt sure if there are big price differences at SMU between the stores.

Thanks in advance for all your responses ;) I wont get internet access in my apartment until the 10th so I am kinda limited on my internet access until then.

Starbucks is across the street . . .I'm not sure if they have free wireless. The entire law school should be wireless soon, and the new dining hall should be wireless so you could get coffee there.  Most of the campus is wireless, so if you want to get away from other law students (trust me, you will thank me for this later), you can go to the undergrad libraries, or even outside if the weather is nice. There's also a coffeeshop/internet cafe opening in the student center this month.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. Starbucks doesnt have free wireless but I did find a cool spot near downtown (ill probably be studying here if it remains as quiet as it is now).

How are the students at the law school? I noticed a lot of the guys wearing greek shirts which reminds me of my undergrad classes. Are the people as stuck up as the SMU undergrads? Also, what 1L professors should we watch out for (meaning the ones that try to deliberately trick you on the exams and cant/wont teach)? Sorry for all these questions, but I just finished my loan papers and all those zeros are beginning to scare me. ;)

Has anyone received any info on 1L orientation? I noticed that other schools have sent out schedules, dress codes, and even names of 2Ls to contact for school info. Also, are there any decent coffee shops near campus with free wireless?
