I guess I'm in the small minority that still briefs cases.   :-\

Where should I go next fall? / Re: IU-Indy vs. Penn State HELP!

The two factors you need to think about are cost and where you want to live.  While both seem to do well in the region where they are located, it will be much harder for you to find a job outside their respective regions.

I think you two should fight to the death gladiator style to see where the OP ends up. Flail vs. net and trident.

Nah, I'd rather the OP pick,you know, rationally.   :D

I'm a UF law student, so if you have any questions about UF, feel free to ask.

I second "The Nine."  I've also heard good things about this book:

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: How do I set myself apart?

That's probably good, although you can map out the skeleton of the outline from you syllabus, so you know what things will end up going where.


Word.

Want to distinguish yourself? Keep at it for the whole semester. Everyone is hot out of the gate when the race starts, but it's the ones that can keep the pace for the longest that come out on top. You'll see people fade off as the time goes on...
Good luck.


Agreed.  Law school is a marathon, not a sprint.

Nope.  blue doesn't go to your school.   :)

(I know what schools both of you go to).

Someone in my section had gone to hs with two other people from my 1L class, so I think that might be more common than one would think.

Really, you know where I go to school?  ;)

It must not be as uncommon as we'd like to think.  While there are many high schools in the United States, there aren't too many law schools.

My reaction?  Meh.  As a poor law student, that still wouldn't be worth the $$ for me.  But I think it depends on whether you are using these briefs as a complete substitute for reading, which is something I never did.

Yeah, I never substituted something like that for actually reading the assignments. 

I've noticed OP, that at my school the people who tended to use those books didn't as well wrt grades.  Of course, that could be self-selection, and that's only anecdotal evidence, but take it for what it's worth!  :)
