Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Good Supplement for Civ Pro?
« on: March 06, 2005, 01:11:49 PM »
Yes, the EZ Rules book is really good...Also, if you know anyone (maybe upperclass people) who have the PMBR CD-Rom lectures...i actually found the Civ Pro one extremely helpful...

Do you have any specific problems in Civ Pro that are really troubling you that one of us might be able to help with?

I did pretty well in that class, and I'm sure there are others on here who did to.

General Board / Re: Looking for students at Quinnipiac or Willamette
« on: March 03, 2005, 11:22:42 AM »
Hi Angie,

 ;D
I got excited when i saw Willamette in your post!  I am a first year at Willamette right now.  I think it's a great school...better than I expected.  I had really wanted to go to Lewis & Clark, where I was waitlisted, and then didn't get in...but I got into Willamette...Have you actually applied/been accepted yet?  If so, here's a little hint: If they didn't offer you a scholarship, write them an appeal letter (just a short letter explaining why you think you deserve a scholarship).  That's what I did, and they ended up giving me some money (contingent on maintaining a certain gpa). 

I don't know anything about the other school you mentioned...or even where it is...but I'll tell you all you want to know about Willamette...just send me an email at seeknothing@yahoo.com, that way I don't have to take up a bunch of room on this post to tell you.

General Board / Re: advice for interview with pd or da's office
« on: March 02, 2005, 11:31:12 AM »
i think those places are really interested in people who are passionate about doing that SPECIFIC work...so assure them that essentially, you are not just looking for a job...you really really really aspire to be a public defender, etc... and tell them WHY ....and maybe add in a little personal story (short) as to what drove you in that direction. Though grades are important, a lot of government jobs are more interested in passion and loyalty...unless you want to clerk for a judge...then you better be a GREAT writer.

If you are aspiring to be a judge....one of the most important things is networking, and gaining a huge amount of respect while doing so....ethical standards should be extremely high...Also, I know that it is very important to get plenty of experience in mediation and arbitration.... I have a friend who is trying to get appointed...and this is what she's been told.

General Board / Re: Best School for Students Who Hate Law School?
« on: February 01, 2005, 04:39:51 PM »
why the hell are you IN law school if you hate it?
it's not like it's a bowl full of daisies each day for anyone else anyway.

Read a trashy novel, watch bad reality shows, and get drunk a lot.

Because you will have NO time for ANY of this once school starts.
