General Board / Re: Any graduate-degree-holding law students out there?
« on: August 15, 2004, 12:27:12 AM »
ill be a 1L at BC this fall... ive got a masters in structural engineering. i definitely fared better than i should have given my ungergrad gpa and lsat score... and the fact that i applied VERY VERY late. but i really cant say what the exact reason was for my favorable admissions stats.


i did engineering in undergrad, and therefore had somewhat of a lower gpa (3.33). i cant speak to exactly what helped me the most... my engineering background (which i know law schools love), or my masters degree, or my higher gpa in grad school (3.90), or the fact that i simply had taken a grad level class. also, my lsat score was pretty good, though not amazing by any means.

but all that said, i have no doubt that the grad degree DID help me. but to what degree, i couldnt say.

But do you think your professors would be able to "teach the law" as they face the class? 

well, that outfit isnt such a problem when you are facing the person... its when you turn around that the problems start :)

Problems?  Perhaps you mean FUN!


eh... you say potayto, i say potahto, either way its a lot of naked asses in one place :)

If we could get our entire section outfitted this way, I'd think that would be a subtle signal to our professors that we were there to "learn the law".

sounds like a plan... im gonna go ahead and call the dean now to discuss our plan. if i dont show up for orientation youll know that the discussion... ummm... didnt go so well.

is the formal title of the contracts book

studies in contract law

http://www.fetchbook.info/showImage.do?search=1587784882

i am looking at fetchbook.info and also www.bookfinder.com

i think i will buy my books online, i have done so in the past and know that returning can be pretty easy. ofcourse i will have to consider the shipping cost etc but if its less then online i go.

i think that may be the right title (at least if you are buying the one by murphey, et al). i dont remember the exact name but i do remember that the title was not simply "contracts." the cover that is shown on that link looks like the one at bc. though, really ALL the book covers have the exact same design... even when they are by different authors! i think maybe ill make another trip to the bookstore today so i can get the ISBN numbmers for all these books.

how much is normal to spend per semester for books? right now i see at least $550 (bc bookstore prices) and there are still two books that arent in yet!

eee, moxygal, michelle,

I am in section 2 too!  There goes eee's theory.

yeah, im kinda doubting the reliability of my own theory as well... i met another soon-to-be 1L yesterday at the bookstore. she was going to be in section 3. and she went to yale undergrad... maybe they put all the smart people in sections 2 and 3 :)

thanks for the leg work eee

i looked on some site that had bargains i wish i remembered the site but it basically scans all over the place for lowest prices and found MUCH lower prices.  

What is the exact name of the contracts book btw?

if i find the site again i will let you know but it probably won't be until monday b/c i was looking ish up at work, hopefully i left the browser open

yeah, let me know what that site is. though, im really not sure if im going to end up buying my books on line or not. i think the extra money might be worth the peace of mind in knowing that i have the exact book that the proff requested and that i can return it without much hassle. if it going to save me that much money, though, then i might be convinced.

where are people looking online for these books? ive been checking out amazon.com and all the prices on amazon are exactly the same as they are in the bookstore. is there a cheaper website that i should be looking at?
