General Off-Topic Board / Re: Exile LSD: The Law School Years

Did I mention I'm going to school with several people from my high school?  It's kind of weird

Do you go to my school then? I overheard someone saying that today as I was leaving class. My guess is that it's not too common, at least not common enough that one would notice.

OP, just a friendly word of advice:  Concentrate more on the quality time that you must put into studying.  It's more about quality than quantity when studying in law school!  Find out what works for you and go from there. 

Good luck!

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: 1L Jobs

I know as a 1L your not supposed to work. However, before applying to law school I found out my gf is knocked up. I currently work as a night club dj on fridays & sats, but will need a lil more cash to handle my biz. Any recommendations for decent paying jobs I can do in the early afternoons after classes (non-retail)?

My recommendation is to see if the law school library has job openings for 1L's.  You might be paid to study!

I also suspect that Florida and Florida State both show loyalty to their alumni during admissions, but that's not a big deal.

Exactly.  The OP will be fine going to UCF.  He/she just needs to keep that GPA up and study hard for the LSAT if he/she wants to go to UF or FSU!

I was never a huge fan of Oyez... not that many details.  I just looked up Roe v. Wade and it has like 9 lines of info.  Wiki on the other hand has great background as well as the decision of the court with summaries of the sections plus the dissent and then goes on to give overviews of subsequent cases and the controversy. 

To each their own.

Fair enough.

Oyez.org is even better than wikipedia and google for con law, for what it's worth.

You will have access to a free digital copy from West once you start school.  Don't buy one.

If you start school and find yourself using the West copy often, buy the pocket version.

Botbot's correct.  Just wait until you get the free Westlaw version.
