Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Study Aid(s) Crazyness!!!
« on: June 20, 2007, 12:14:20 PM »
Thanks for the advice from everyone.  Keep the suggestions and comments coming:-)
It seems that it is trial and error; get a feeling of what works for you and try different study aids out until you find your panacea.  I only fear that with 1L grades being so important, I will be under the gun and behind on time as the first semester goes on - as I wander aimlessly browsing potential study aids.  Hence I wanted to get them this summer before school starts.  But from what I have read, that would be taking shots in the dark at costly supplemenets that I may not even use.  Thanks again for the advice and insight....

Studying and Exam Taking / Study Aid(s) Crazyness!!!
« on: June 19, 2007, 09:43:48 PM »
I have read Planet Law School II.  I also plan to get LEEWS..good decision?  Besides that, that is where my certainty ends.

They (PLSII) tell you to get study aids.  But at this point, my head is spinning as to what study aids to get.  There are so many out there.  Emanuels, Gilberts, Examples and Explanations, High Court summaries, legalines, hornbooks, the ABC's of the UCC, Second Restatement of Torts and Contracts, etc.  I don't even know what the difference is in half of them.  Plus, I read that some study aids are keyed to the casebooks?  Should I get these supplements now before school starts?  If so, which ones?  Or wait to see how things play out after school commences?

Is this a trial and error procedure?  Get some study aids and see how you like them?  Or are there a certain set that most first year students tend to rely on?
Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

General Board / Re: "Provisionally Approval" status -- Florida A&M

Thanks guys.  This is addressed to "Nowhere Man" and "ChristyLove."  I am getting a lot of advice in different directions about the first year of law school.  Is there anything specific about your first year at FAMU COL that comes to mind?  Any particular classes?  Profs?

Sorry for the overload of questions.  Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated.

I am going to Florida A&M in the fall.  I got into Loyola, Michigan State, John Marshall, and Faulkner.  I really wanted to attend Michigan State but couldn't swing the financials - same with Loyola.  The private tuitions and then everything on top of it was just way too expensive for an ex-high school teacher. 

I am a Florida resident so I am getting in state tuition at A&M.  I went up last month to check out the school.  The building is really unbelievable.  Everything is state of the art and really nice.  Yes I do have the feeling that things tend to work slowly in regard to the administration, but overall I liked it.  The school is very diverse. 

As for the provisional approval, as long as you matriculate (start) when the school is provisionally approved, your good to go in regard to the Florida Bar. 

Anyone who is going to attend Florida A&M or who currently attends Florida A&M, I would love to chat and talk some.  Send me an email when you get a chance.

LOL, I was waiting for a posting from you.  I've gotten into Loyola-NO, and Florida A&M since then as well...so it looks like JMLS-ATL is out.  But again, thanks for the update in the job market:)

In at Michigan State today.  I posted this under the pre law board but didnt get much of a response.  Anyone know about MSU?  I am from south florida and never been to Michigan - obviously the weather is going to be a dramtic change.  But besides that, anyone have any insight into MSU Law?

You can show me all the data you want but you spin remarks to suite yourself and to avoid the statements.  Or maybe your not avoiding them, your just not getting it?  Here it goes in lamens terms: Obviously more students will place in south Florida coming from Saint Thomas or Nova than Seton Hall or University of Denver.  This will be true based solely on the geographic area.  It makes sense that going to school in south Florida, the law school students will stay in south Florida post graudation and enter the job market.  Now here is the kicker, listen up.  But there are some, few, yet some, students like myself who will come back to Florida from the University of Denver or Seton Hall or St. Johns or Indiana U.  Believe it or not, after graduation one has the choice to practice wherever he or she has that said desire.  Those of us who do come back from these far distant schools, will be much more highly recruited in the job market and hired before a graduate from Nova or St. Thomas.  ;D

Sounds good.  Where are you graduating from?  May I send you an email and pick your brain about ATL?:)
