General Board / Re: Attendance- How strict are your professors?
« on: February 20, 2007, 11:31:28 AM »
I generally don't care whether students return to class after a break.  I do care, however, when students come to class late by walking through the front doors, or when students leave and then return through the front doors. 

Why is it that the students with the huge roller-suitcases always come in 2 minutes after class starts and sit in the middle of a row? Every class I get hit in the back of the head and you almost knock 5 laptops off. If you are going to carry your books in a samsonite suitable for a 3 month vacation, show up to class 10 minutes early and get a seat on the edge. And don't tell me you can't get to class on time either, you always have a full large coffee and sandwich with you when you walk in.

This person, in a different form, exists in every class I have had in law school and the 3 undergrads I attended... why is that?

You could always compromise and just spend 7 years in undergrad.

Check the bar application in the states you are thkining of applying. MA only ask if you currently use illegal drugs or if you have gotten in trouble for using drugs. It doesn't ask if you ever used drugs.

California and New York are constantly breaking new legal ground that the rest of the country falls in line behind.

New York's pretty legit, but when you say "breaking new legal ground" for California, you should say "making up crap to further dilute the common law"

General Board / Re: Nervous about Judicial externships

I wouldn't worry about it too much. The type of work you will do will depend on the judge, but its basically either reviewing and analyzing motions, or doing independant analysis on legal issues. What the issues are can be pretty random. Ask the Judge for a sample of what was assignedand check out the format and what not. Some courts and judges even have manuels to work off of. It won't be that hard to figure out, and you could always ask your lexis and/or westlaw rep for a course before you start.

The Externship was easily the best part of law school for me.

DOJ jobs are pretty competitive, I doubt an online program would work

Whats the rush? Your not going to beat doogie howser. I think adcoms would be more impressed if you did something interesting in college than having 3 majors. I enjoyed all 6 years I spent in undergrad.

I sent out 9 that had 2006 as the date.

I caught 12 that showed my grades would be available 1/122/07.

If it comes up, tell them you use a metric calander.
