Studying and Exam Taking / Re: contracts questions
« on: December 07, 2008, 09:36:13 AM »
disclaimer: i'm a 1L in the middle of studying for contracts as well so i could be totally wrong.


1) On the exam, I'm sure if you find a way around it you can always argue for reliance damages (think of Grant Gilmore's skepticism of how you can find reliance damages in everything so promissory estoppel is a never-ending game).  But technically speaking it's when the promisee incurs some detriment because they thought the promise was for real - so reliance damages need to restore them back to the way they would have been had the contract not been performed/relied on.

2) Adhesion contracts are unconscionable if they don't give you the option to walk away from it. that's why even though EULA's (the extremely long, convoluted contracts that pop up when you download a file and it says "Accept" or not) seem a bit unfair by forcing you take all or nothing, at least they give you the option so they're not unconscionable). also, they're unconscionable if they dupe you somehow into signing it or signing into terms you didn't understand.

General Board / is lsd as helpful in law school as it was before?
« on: October 27, 2008, 07:20:26 PM »
so i found LSD extremely helpful (and addictive) when i was studying for my lsat's and prepping my apps, but have stayed away from it for quite some time now.  I've entered my 1L year, and am wondering if it might be helpful to get back into my daily lsd'ing habit - do you guys find this board to be as useful to law students as it is to pre-law students?  are there any other helpful websites i should get hooked onto? let me know, thanks!

accepted off uchicago waitlist today!!!

also - got a missed phone call from UCLA yesterday... would that be an acceptance or a scholarship offer? or just inquiry as to whether i'm still interested? like all others, i haven't heard from them in... well, never heard from them really period, so i have no idea.

The UCLA call was probably an acceptance along with a big scholarship offer. They've done that to a couple people on here lately.

Will they still be sending me snailmail stuff? I can't get back in touch with them...
