Law School Admissions / Re: Can Someone Explain 'Soft Factors'????
« on: May 14, 2007, 07:47:58 PM »
they dont really matter.


except urm status or if youve truly accomplished something.

side note: the funniest is when someone lists 'started own successful business' as a soft factor. this probably means you run a website that takes in 450 dollars a month in google ad dollars. if you have a TRULY successful business, why would you go to law school? wouldnt all of your time be already occupied?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Iowa or Wisconsin?

i dont know any details, as i didnt consider iowa when i was applying. When i was considering schools, it basically went in this order:

1. cost
2. location
3. ranking

my dad is from iowa and i know that it is an extremely boring place to live.

what's a typical week day for you?
what's a typical weekend for you?
 :) ;) :D ;D


just tagging to get my question answered.  :D
im not quite sure what you mean. a typical weekday involves getting up at 8, going to class, reading/outlining between classes, maybe grabbing some lunch downtown, coming home around 4 or so, maybe watching some tv, doing work.

typical weekend involves hanging out with friends, reading, playing with my dog.

can you tell us more about the commerical outlines and flash cards ? thanks.

F*ck it, I wanna hear more about the dog.

Seriously though, good info on the flashcards and outlines.  I was in the dark about this completely.

he's a chow/golden retriever mix and his name is Panda and he is about 3 months old!

also, although it differs with everyone, I would recommend NOT studying alone and NOT studying with a group, but with one other person. I feel like you can get more done that way and its easy to stay on task, especialy when using the flashcards.

I highly recommend reading Glannon's or Examples and Explanations concurrently with your first year casebooks.

As for the flashcards, they are called Law in a Flash by emanual, and they are great for reviewing for exams. I would buy these for each first year class.

neither of those would give you an advantage in NYC over the other. I would go to the least expensive school.

I've heard from a few sources that when it comes to studying, the best approach to take is: Study for finals, not for class. Thoughts?

it really depends on each professor. for example, my torts prof was VERY socratic. if you werent prepared for class, he'd pin you to the wall and make you feel like a complete idiot. others were much more forgiving. for the sake of your own stress levels, you better prepare for classes like that. it's also the best way to internalize the material. but yes, the advice you got is typically right. when it comes down to it, the exam is what matters, and the best way to prepare for those is commercial outlines, emanual flash cards, and hornbooks.
