Current Law Students / Re: 1L Resume question

I wouldn't use it, unless you had some significant experiences don't want to look like the jabrone who puts highschool stuff on his resume when he graduates college....or the shlep who puts ABA member on a resume to fill space.

But if your job experience was insignificant for the past five years....attendant at wendy's or what not, i guess you just have to pick the best stuff you have.


Current Law Students / Re: What's the deal with...OUTLINING?!
« on: August 27, 2005, 02:29:38 PM »
see if your school has an outline bank...we have a website with old outlines. most professors tell the same stories year after year. i found it's easier to add to old ones and use them as a guide. if you follow it through the semester you'll know if it's good or not too. 

Current Law Students / Re: Some Question Third Year of Law School
« on: August 10, 2005, 07:28:20 AM »
that sounds like a stupid concept. if they're not going to decrease the credit requirements, their primary goal of reducing the debt burden is undermined. Schools typically charge per credit...90 credits will cost the same whether you get them in two years or three. in the grand scheme of law school debt, how much of a difference is the third year of living expenses?

I'd even bet schools that offer "flexible" programs will take the same approach MBA programs do....Charge twice as much for the working professional version as they do for the "full time student program." It's sick when you think that many MBA programs cost 10 grand/year full time...and 20k/year part time. WTF? $60k to get the same number of credits part time versus $20k to get the same degree full time.

hmmm....i guess Callaw's going to start whining that it's not fair that the rich kids get to go study abroad in the summer, while the those who don't live off their parents have to work....or the kids that have to work and take classes full time the second and third year when others have a stipend.

I guess every one can either sulk about the imperfect world we live in....or we can blame ourselves for putting ourselves in positions that disallow us to pursue our dreams and force us to live a meager existence.

Current Law Students / Re: Legal Dictionary?

why would you buy a black's dictionary when you have instant access to the most recent one through your westlaw/lexis account? Save the cash....and it's far quicker to access it online anyway.

This is the best string I've seen in a while. It definitely puts a smile on my face. Either Roger Williams sucks so bad the administration is trying to censor its students (highly unlikely)....or someone hates Roger Williams so much they've come up with a grand scheme of disparaging it in a clandestine manner. Either way....priceless!

Current Law Students / Re: Anyone buying instead of renting?
« on: July 06, 2005, 08:04:20 PM »
buying is way better than renting. I bought my house before i started school. I rent out a room and it basically costs me 500/month to own a home 2 miles from campus. The appreciation on the house should cover my law school debt when if i sell it after graduation. But i'll probably rent it b/c the people in my neighborhood renting the homes are getting 50% more than the mortgage each month...maybe i'll be a slumlord.
