General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: used or new supplements

It depends on the class. Torts definitely. Con law changes so much you will want recent.

I started outlining about 2-3 weeks in. Before that, I didn't think I had a big picture. But then again, my outlines don't really look like what some people consider the standard outline, so I say do what it best for you. That is what is most important.

I don't think they are the same. I am going from memory though, so I could be wrong. But I used both as a 1L and I would hope I would have remembered that.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Commuting..

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.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Sample Property Exam Questions

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.).

General Board / Re: Bar Review Courses

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.

General Board / Re: Exam Conflicts

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.
