Studying and Exam Taking / Best Outlining & Note-Taking Software?
« on: October 14, 2006, 12:34:33 PM »
In the process of compiling my notes into outlines, and Word just isn't the most efficient software.  From reading some other posts, I see that some people recommend "StoreLaw" and some people like "Juristudents".  The posts I read discussing this are from back in 2004, so I'd like a fresh, more current view of what works for today's law students.  Feedback is much appreciated.

Law School Rankings / Ga State's fall and Mercer's rise
« on: May 28, 2006, 03:58:55 PM »
Per the new rankings, Ga State has dropped 8 spots to 97, while Mercer has jumped 12 spots to 87.  It appears the tables have turned very late.  Could be a game time decision. 

I don't think that a ranking difference of 10 really matters too much?

Where should I go next fall? / Part Time or Full Time?

I was under the impression that part time programs were harder to get in because they were in higher demand.  Is this true?

Acceptances / Someone tell me why they are going to Georgia State
« on: April 22, 2006, 03:38:52 PM »
I visited their campus a few weeks ago and was thoroughly disappointed.  Right now the only thing keeping them at the top of my list is location, economics, and ranking (relative to my other options). 

- The campus is pathetic.
- Classrooms are the most low-tech of any schools I've visited.
- Facilities are in need of serious renovation.
- No wireless internet throughout the law schoool.  Are we still in the 90's?
- The law building is shared with other schools
- Have you seen their law library? (no need to elaborate)
- Inner-city location that is completely open to whatever.   


Opinions from anyone planning to attend Georgia State this fall (or current students) are appreciated.

Where should I go next fall? / Advantages of staying "in state"
« on: April 21, 2006, 12:03:03 AM »
I visited GA State a few weeks ago and was very unimpressed.  From harrassing bums on the sidewalk to trashy buildings/classrooms & low-tech facilities, I was absolutely appalled.  Granted, their in-state tuition is about as cheap as it gets - but something has to be said for quality of experience right?  I was initially leaning towards Samford because I know a lot of people there AND their campus (library, law school, integrated technology) are top notch (not to mention all the undergrad eye-candy). But law school isn't about an experience, it's about an education - or at least I'm trying to convince myself of that.  I have heard it's very difficult finding employment in a different state than your law school.  Anyway, I suppose I will reluctantly take the economic, more convenient option in lieu of a fun, friendly, higher quality atmosphere.  I wish I had never visited Samford - they obviously have more money than they know what to do with, and those Birmingham folks know how to roll out the welcome mat.  Staying in Atlanta has it's advantages though, so hopefully I can get past the runned-down look.  I've got until June to decide.
