Incoming 1Ls / Re: Commuting..
« on: April 20, 2009, 09:17:26 AM »
I commute an hour each way and agree with Matthies that it can be done.
But I wouldn't recommend listening to anything law related. Take the time to unwind and do anything but worry about law school. I sometimes would try to take the most scenic route I could home, just to get away. It was a nice break.

CALI exercises should help

I agree. The Glannon Guide was very helpful, though some of the answers were off. (By off, I mean, the question used one figure and the answer substituted another one. If you realize that its a typo instead off freaking out and trying to get the same answer, you'll be fine.).

Bar/Bri's course includes the MBE so unless you are really struggling with it, I would say you do not need to spend anything extra.

For property the Lexis Understanding series is pretty good, especially for future interests.

Can only reschedule if you have two exams scheduled at the exact same time. We know the exam schedule in advance, and if you're stupid enough to schedule three finals in two days, my school basically says tough luck.

If I remember correctly, anyone qualifies for the cap, but only someone in PI for 10 years gets the forgiveness.

Bar Exam Preparation / Re: BarBri Rate Lock In

Between last year and this year, Bar/Bri's tuition rates went up $200 or more across the board. If that holds true for the three years you are in school, yes it will be worth it ($600 v. $100).

In my experience, the notes are full of tidbids profs love to test on. As for the questions, I usually would briefly outline an answer so I had an opportunity to apply what I read to a hypo.
