General Board / Re: Depression
« on: December 21, 2004, 06:44:33 PM »
i also always had a problem with's just been a part of my life...regarding the impact of law school on depression....well, as one who has just completed her first semester of law be honest, there's no TIME in law school to be depressed...which could be a blessing in disguise...i don't know about you, but me personally: i was always more inclined to depression when i was bored or had a lot of free time and lack of school pretty much takes all of those elements away...i have personally felt some depression lately...but my reasons are because, i am 2,000 miles away from all of my family and the friends that i've formed over the years....and b/c there is no time in law school for anything other than studying, there's no time to really form new, i personally feel very lonely and isolated at times....which you may experience too if you are far from home....but, i think it's all worth it in the long run...

« on: December 19, 2004, 09:44:45 PM » guys need to take a chill pill.  do you honestly believe that your exam answers were not better than ANYONE in your class?  if your school grades on a curve, as mine does, only a certain percentage gets A'a, only a certain percentage gets below a C or C- and the rest are in between...i personally don't believe that i'm one of those few As...however, when i think back to some of the IDIOTS in my classes, i feel a sense of relief, b/c i am making a not-so-far-reaching presumption that those are the ones who get below a C-.

Duma....i could be wrong about this (so, anyone, feel free to argue)...but regarding the IRAC format...I think as long as you address the issues, rules, and your analysis/conclusion, it should suffice....meaning, i don't know how important it is to follow that exact order for every single issue....???

yeah, i totally agree about the whole "i'm sure you did GREAT!" *&^%...

but the thing that annoys me most is this the fact that i've moved all the way across the country and, as busy as law school causes our lives to be, i've still managed to make some phone calls, throughout the semester, back home to old friends...and then I am the one who doesn't get a call back for a long time...and when i finally talk to them, they always say, "sorry it's taken me so long to call back...i've just been SOOO BUSY with work and stuff"

I just had my Contracts exam yesterday (and had Torts last Tues)...just Criminal and Civ Pro to go...more nervous about Civ Pro than any other exam.  Contracts consisted of one long essay and 5 shorter essays.
Torts consisted of 3 long essays.

did you do any practice LSAT exams in preparation for the real thing? if not, that was a mistake.  yes, you can still take it in February, but because the scores take a while to come in, and many people would have already applied and even gotten their answers, it may put you at a disadvantage as far as applying behind many people.  i would assume that being foreign would be an advantage b/c the schools do want diversity.  emory is extremely difficult to get into, and GSU is not too easy either...i'd retake it if you did poorly and do tons of prep exams.
