Current Law Students / Re: Law Review Write On Competition

Keep it up, squarre, and just try as best you can. Given the time limitations, most law review edit boards aren't expecting perfection - just solid work and clean citations. At our school they really hammered it in that about half the people who intially entered the write-on competition actually ended up submitting an entry, so you might have a better chance than you think.

Now I'm excited that I go to a law school whose dean doesn't respond to a random student who goes by the name of "klaw"... But um, thanks, Dean Tonsing!

Current Law Students / Anyone excited for 2L?

I kind of feel like there's something wrong with me for being so excited about 2L. I was absolutely frustrated by 1L and the drudgery of it all, but there's something so liberating about being able to choose your own classes, have a blank slate with new professors and classmates, actually have the time to participate in some other activities. Even cite-checking on law journal seems fun compared to pretending to care about Civ Pro! Anyone else with me, or am I being completely irrational in my newfound excitement about law school?

Wow, this thread went from a funny little characterization of pre-law students to being a pointless all-out flame war really quickly.

Go to Case - it's well enough known in New England and it's ranked far higher. I'm from New England, and I'm not sure what the hell St. John's is.

Thanks, SL! Genuinely funny stuff...

Yeah, what's the K language?

I like to spend one day just concentrating on one subject. That way I don't have to lug all the books around and that overwhelming feeling doesn't kick in. Today for example is Civ Pro day and I'm working on my outline and reviewing all of the cases, trying to work out the answers to old exams, etc. This might not work for all people (who might get bored doing Civ Pro all day), but I find it better and easier to concentrate than looking at the Property book in the corner and going "Oh crap, I have so much to do!"

Yeah, law review doesn't sound fun, but I'm going to write-on in the hopes of fulfilling the writing requirement and any additional prestige that it will get me.
