Let's bring this thread back to life!  I've been obsessively reading the Warriors series - I know ... it's a series for 8-14 year olds, but it's really entertaining :D  I love animal fantasy/fiction, so yay!  If you like Watership Down, Redwall, or Tailchaser's Song ... then I highly recommend Erin Hunter's Warriors and Seekers series.  READ THEM!  Also, light, young adult fiction is perfect for the harried law student  :D

You want your books - sometimes when profs call on you they want you to read from the text or look up something on a specific page - they refer to things you may not have read, etc.

Briefing alone is not sufficient ... besides - you'll suck at briefing and write down the wrong things at first.

General Board / Studying for the bar?
« on: June 24, 2008, 11:36:10 AM »
How does this actually work?  I just finished my first year of LS, and I'm curious for scheduling of life purposes!

It seems that most people don't study until about a week after spring exams of their 3rd year - they graduate, and then start barbri and study until the bar (which is mid-july, yes?)  So mid may - mid july is bar time?  It's stressful and hard, but it's short and then over, right?

I've also heard of ppl taking it more than once - do they have to wait a year to take it again each time?

I'm talking Ohio here, if that helps!

Thanks!

Doesn't your school offer health insurance?

Take all of those "guides to law school" books w/ a grain of salt - they were definitely all written by gunners who didn't have lives (ever - but especially in law school).  Those books will just scare you into thinking you need to study 8 hours a day.  You can read them, and some of the tips/etc are helpful, but don't get overwhelmed.

I mean ... I probably was in the bottom 20% as far as "time spent studying" goes ... but grade-wise I'm in the top 30% ... go figure.

Get the crunchtime for property - I should have gotten it and used it all semester instead of just the couple weeks before the exam - it lays everything out SO simply.

Yes - I think it is a helpful book.  I didn't read it until a few weeks before my SECOND semester exams, though ... but it was a lot of stuff I'd already figured out by then.  I would NOT recommend reading it before you start law school, though ... there are a lot of really specific examples that will mean NOTHING to you (about Contracts, torts, etc.) before you have learned some of them.  Save it for fall break!
