Current Law Students / Re: Unusual selection of textbooks?
« on: July 21, 2004, 12:55:45 PM »
Jeffjoe - Seems funny to see you as a Jr. Member.  Do you think you'll make Sr. Citizen before classes start????

Anyway, I should be receiving my class schedule any day now, but I'm dying to know - how much reading are you supposed to do for the first day of class?  Any written assignments?

Wow!

Once, again, Lawgirl, your wisdom and generosity blow me away.  You sound like the type of student we all aspire to be.

Thanks.

Current Law Students / Re: LEEWS???

LEEWS is definitely a cult, but it is one worth joining.  LEEWS gives you the inside scoop on what law school exams are all about, and that's ALL THAT MATTERS to do well in law school.  Get the tapes before school starts and listen to them at intervals throughout the semester (buy a $10 cassette player, if you have to).  By the time your first exams roll around, you will already be a law exam expert!  Avoid the actual seminars; get the tapes instead.  I know listening to the tapes may seem boring, but you can go at your own pace and can repeat the program multiple times, so I saw no real reason to do the live seminar. 

LEEWS does seem a bit dodgy, but don't let that concern you.  When I called to order the tapes 2 years ago, I actually spoke with Wentworth Miller, who was taking down order information on the 800 number. It's still enormously helpful stuff.

OK, Helpful Harry, I got past the cassette player problem.  My next questions is: do you think it makes sense to listen to these tapes while driving a car? or do you have to be sitting with pen hand during the audiotapes?  I'm thinking since I spend so much time driving, it would be a good use of time to listen in the car (I bought some kind of adapter you can hook up an old cassette walkman and play it through your car audio system.)

Current Law Students / Is it a good idea to join a study group?
« on: June 21, 2004, 08:27:46 PM »
In college, I never studied with people because I feel that they eventually feed off each other's anxiety, thus creating a toxic environment.  This opinion stems from scenes I observed outside the classroom just before finals - too much second-guessing and anxiety.  In fact, I always made a point to avoid talking to my classmates right before a final because I didn't want anyone disturbing the large amount of information I crammed into my brain the night before.  With that said, I realize that LS is a completely different kind of learning process - (you actually have to apply knowledge, not just regurgitate facts!) - and was wondering if it was a good idea to be in a study group for the first year.  I would hate to find out the hard way whether it was a good idea or not, so any opinions, pro or con, would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've heard that it is a useful program from several people.  I have a BIG problem with the audio version only being available on cassette tape.  Seems kind of backwards to me.  I don't have anything to play a casette tape, including my car, because that format is about 20 years outdated.

Current Law Students / Re: 143 LSAT score, would you retake the test?
« on: June 15, 2004, 08:37:17 AM »
Go to the websites of the law schools you're interested in.  They all post the median LSAT score of the previous year's entering class.  Do your research!

Many thanks to eee for asking such good questions, and many, many, many thanks to lawgirl and egfmba for your responses.  This is one of the most valuable threads I've encountered.

Lawgirl, how would you answer eee's last questions?  It seems so rare that we get responses from actual experienced law students.  Thanks.

Ryan,

I know you posted here thinking you'd get some insight from current law students, but if you browse around, you'll notice that most of the activity here is from soon to be 1L's just like us.

Anyway, I said this before, but it bears repeating: you need to chill.  This is not good for you.
