General Board / Re: QUESTION: How long is the J.D degree good for?

I don't think a law degree expires, you worked hard enough for it, but I suggest you take Haus's advice, don't wait a lifetime to take the bar exam.

General Board / Re: Chances of getting back into law school after dismissal

Maybe in a situation like yours you could consider other options. Are you 100% sure you want to study law? Choosing a career is not easy but it's something to think long and hard about.

How did the MPRE go ? Is this the first time you're taking it? From what I heard it's not a very difficult test, like the BAR, but it's not a piece of cake either.

Socratic Method / Re: Socratic method = russian roulette?

It seems like everyone finds this method to be something awful. I find it refreshing, it's a great mind exercise and for a lawyer it's definitely really important. A good lawyer has to think fast and be confident in what he/she says.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Briefs

I have found great sources of inspiration on that site, I'm so glad someone thought about creating it. Professors may have their reasons if they advice everyone not to use any briefs or outlines but until I know it's a good reason I will continue to read whatever I find useful and take notes for myself.

I'm not familiar with them but if the professors suggest them, they must have a good enough reason. You could try them out and see how it goes.

I wish you all the luck in the world! I think it's great that you have such ambitions, even if you dropped out. You're not the first one or the last, the good thing is you want to get back on track. I hope you'll manage to do your best.

I agree, every parent thinks their kid has ADD or ADHD, why is that ? I was also hyperactive as a child and when it came to taking exams as an adult I always had problems focusing.  It's normal! I was stressed, every exam is stressful in one way or another.

You did a good job! I wish I had your determination, studying before even taking the class. I think it's a great thing you accomplished and I'm sure you'll do great in law school.

I also find it difficult to work and study but if you put your mind to it and if you make yourself a schedule, like Cher said above, there's no way you won't make it. Of course, it's going to be very hard to respect the schedule, you never know what unexpected things might happen but the least you can do is try hard. I hope I helped at least a little bit.
