Yeah I still feel lost. I think I know what I have to do inorder to study and prepare for class but with all new professors what they ask for is sometimes far from what I felt was important. It is just the first week and I already feel tired  go figure.

Hey Dkast no hard feelings oral advocacy is big at CUNY also. We are learning how to fight for people's rights. Good Luck in school have to get ready for oral arguments tommorrow (mock trial). Practice makes perfect

some of us actually care about people dkast. not everyone is running after money some of us want to make a difference in the world. some of us would like to help those that are less fortunate then us. I thank God for everything he has blessed me with in life and not many people have that privelege. So if giving up Yale (that I did not apply to) for CUNY is what would make that true I disagree. If I want biglaw in the future I can always work for one of my parents old buddies that always worked had some great jobs during my time off from school due to that. Dont make generalizations about the students at a school just because of the direction the school is geared towards. I hope you are more open when you become a lawyer or maybe you just enjoy reading over contracts and making extra money for someone who doesnt even morally deserve it while they screw over those who cant even afford to be screwed. BYE BYE

they do not take disadvantage students at CUNY I go there and a few of my friends are also well to do. CUNY has a very strict policy if you get below a 2.3 any semester not cumulative you get kicked out. I believe if you transfer you can still get on Law Review but check it out not sure never had to check into that. The students are great and since we are technically not graded on a curve their is not much of a competitive spirit we all want to see the whole class succeed. It is public interest geared so you will have to network to get out into the business field but it is possible I have a friend who graduated and is working for one of the large firms in NY she interned with them and they kept her so it is possible just need a high GPA also to be in the competition. Touro is not highly ranked so if your like me and would rather be able to pay off your loans in a year or two depending on how much additional you have to borrow GO CUNY you will likely love the family feel of the school students pretty much get along except when it comes to politics then we get into heated debates that are fun. Good luck

Congrats class of 2007 we are finally done with this semester from hell. Only 2 1/2 years to go. I have never been so stressed in my life. Now it is time to party and sleep for three weeks before I have one week to get my first week assignments done.

Current Law Students / Re: How many have you lost?
« on: December 18, 2004, 11:45:33 AM »
 we lost about 6 people out of 150. Heard of two that are not thinking of coming back depending on grades

Hey but at least third tier toilet can graduate with a high GPA and still get a job. second and first tiers have to get there A's or they will be competing with the third tiers and might even be under qualified.

The phone is the worst and I hate everyone telling me you did great when I know darn well I did not get that A. I live at home and I hardly see my Mom. Oh and I hate the people in class that are extremely smart and freak out and make the rest of us that are in a it will be ok if I dont get an A mood as long as they dont kick me out feel like we need to break nite. BUT THINK OF IT THIS WAY WE ARE DONE WE ARE DONE THANK GOD ALMIGHTY WE ARE FREE "for a month"AT LAST. ONLY TWO AND A HALF YEARS LEFT CLASS OF 2007.
