Current Law Students / loans. Private loans, that is.

Private loans. How easy are they to get? How rigorous are the credit requirements? Do they give them to anyone with a pulse?

I am not a bum or anything but I am worried about basing a decision regarding attendance on funds I am not yet sure I can secure! Anyone have any insight on this kind of stuff?

I LOVED going to undergrad with 'returning students'. I am 24 and they averaged probably around 38. I learned so much from them... they had work experience, life experience, and relevant examples and ideas for application.

sometimes you can get Arabic through mosques or maronite catholic churches, free or cheap. Hebrew you might be able to get through a Jewish center or Temple. That is obviously specific. I've also found you can ask foreign students for tutoring. Lots of fun!

ENTJ here :) If nothing else, tests like that help you understand what you could potentially focus on as far as adjusting unconsious traits if necessary.

Do people seriously chat online during class? I'm soon to be a 1L and find that concept flabberghasting!

I would definitely give more weight to your professors explanation, just because generally professors assign grades and casebooks don't--but I would demonstrate knowledge of the case material as much as possible.

really interesting experiment!

I've used variable interval questioning to keep kids alert and 'processing', myself. It's sort of an elementary synthesis.

haha straight out of Legally Blonde :)
1. the absolute geek with numerous doctorates who has been de-worming orphans in eastern Europe for the past few months.
2. the scary lesbian with a phD in women's studies and a focus on the history of combat.
3. the arrogant but inept genius who enjoys telling people his IQ and assumes that famous philosophers take their ideas from his fourth grade papers.
4. the competitive and ruthless female dog.
