Current Law Students / Re: anyone working during full time program
« on: June 21, 2004, 10:26:09 AM »
hmmmm... working during 1L seems risky to me. is the extra few bucks really worth the potential harm to your gpa/clas rank? i mean, in 3 years, whatever $ you have earned will be a drop in the bucket compared to your earning potential (assuming you do well in school)

LawGirl,
you rock! thanks so much for your input on this discuasion and the one about outlining.

33
thanks so much LawGirl! i appreciate all the advice!

now when you outline, do you just use ms word or did you buy some of the special software that is out there like Inspiration 7.5?

34
so perhaps a dumb question: but where exactly do we learn how to make outlines/flow charts the proper law school way? is this something that they will go over in orientation? is there a book youd suggest?

also, how do the notes we take in class fit into our outlines? are they one in the same? and regarding note taking in class, is there a proper way to take them?

is it just my engineering background that is leaving me confused about all of this stuff or are all of the 1Ls going to be in the same boat as me?

Current Law Students / whast is outlining? Why do I care about it?
« on: June 10, 2004, 02:19:17 PM »
I'm going to be a 1L this coming fall and I'm feeling a little behind the game... I've spent the past 6 years (undergrad + grad) as an engineering major so perhaps part of the problem is my lack of exposure to typical liberal arts study techniques.

I know what an outline is (at least in the general, non-law sense), but is it any different in law school? Why is it such a good study tool? How come everyone and their brother is so concerned about having a good outline? Arenít my studying/class notes sufficient? Do I really need a special program to do it effectively or can I just use MS Word?

Thanks to any experienced law students who can offer some advice!

no grad housing at bc... but there is really no need, either. its easy to find an apartment on your own, but the school makes it even easier if you want to go through the housing office.

rent typically ranges between $500 to $800 depending where you live, how many people you live with, if you need a parking spot, etc... to give you an idea, i live 5 minutes (driving) from the school on a quite side street in the middle of a very urban area, right on the subway, with parking, 2 other housemates, big place, and i pay 610/mo not including utilities.

hope that helps...

countries top that each year. it just isnt guaranteed. see iraq: 200 billion and counting

Iraq's a problem we made, so it really can't be held up as an example.

1) why cant it be held up as an example? just becuase its a "problem we made" does not negate the fact that it is still costing us 200 billion

2) fine, then how about the 75 billion for afghanistan?

again, cite me a source.  some kind of website, a book, whatever.


http://www.wrmea.com/html/us_aid_to_israel.htm

Koga, just so you know, that website is run by, what most people find to be, a pro-islamic/palistinian think tank, which isnt to say that the numbers are wrong... but take them with a LOT of salt.

if you read down a bit the article talkes about 2 billion a year in aid.

there are a shitload of websites out there that have, give or take, just about the same numbers on them. most of them are islamic or kkk propaganda, but if you do a search for "israel aid" youll find them.

just for the record, im not saying that giving israel this money is a bad thing (in fact, i support it)... but the fact remains that israel does get a ton 'o cash from us.

cite me a source for that.  Cause I could have sworn Israel does not get much aid from the US. 

You're kidding, right?  Israel's the #1 recipient of US aid and has been for decades.  It is like an obnoxious, loud ass frat boy with rich parents who thinks he the *&^%, who is totally convinced that he is untouchable.  If daddy were to permanently cut him off, he'd have no future and probably would get the *&^% beat out of him by the all the people he'd pissed off.


As for strong armies, look at the original NATO counries with big populations-UK, France, Germany, Turkey, and naturally the US.  Any one of those countries could hand Russia it's ass on a silver platter.

israel gets the most guaranteed aid per year of any other country -- somewhere around 2 blion a year from the US (it does fluctuate somewhat depending on the state of affairs in the US and israel) ... the close second is egypt.  though, this is just "guaranteed" aid... many other countries top that each year. it just isnt guaranteed. see iraq: 200 billion and counting
