General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Commuting..
« on: April 21, 2009, 07:31:21 AM »
Well that's refreshing. I was getting worried that it was near impossible to commute your first year. I guess I want something to listen to law related because I will be losing 3 hours of studying time a day because of the drive. I do have great time management skills, so hopefully everything will work out.

Thanks for all the audio tips!

So, my LS is about an hour and fifteen away from my house. I am going to commute for a while and see how that goes. Does anyone have any recommendations for relevant listening material for the ride? Can I record the lectures and then play them back in the car? Are there any law school books on tape?

Trust me, I do not want to commute but I have a wife and a mortgage, so I cannot just get up and move. If it becomes too much I will have to rent a room during school. However, how many people do we know who commute an hour to work everyday? What's the difference? [rationalization]

My law school is an hour and fifteen from my house. I am married and have a mortgage, so I can't just pick up and move. I am going to try and commute and see that works out. Since I will have about 2 1/2 hours in the car daily, can anyone recommend some law listening material? Is there some way to tape the lectures in class and then listen to them again in the car ride home? Any other audio ideas?

Trust me, I do not want to be doing this and if it becomes to much, I will have to rent a room for the week while in school. However, how many people do we know that commute an hour to work everyday. What's the difference?[rationalization]

Sadly, that needs confirmation. The one thing that shocked me in law school was the bull they are feeding you. And I'm not talking about inflated employment statistics, just... the whole package.

Get LEEWS (www.leews.com). It will help you miles when it comes to exam taking. Your professor will tell you not to obsess about black letter law. This is bull. And this is also where supplements really come in helpful. For every single page you read, think about how this is relevant to your exam not how it will help you get questions right in class. Even if your professor is Kingsfield redux, the exam is what is important. And while I only have experience from 1 law school I have to say, the Socratic method doesn't seem to be what it used to be. I haven't had any professors that go out of their way to be a male private part to anyone.

One thing you should take for granted though; if you have to pass when a professor calls on you, you better be damn well prepared next class. But I'm gonna assume that to be common sense.

Oh, yeah, most important thing about law school. It's perfectly fine to get drunk on Thursdays.

Can anyone seriously attest to LEEWS? I am contemplating using this.

Which do you prefer? I want to buy one and I can't choose! I heard LSC has more negative undertones. I just want to read something that is somewhat interesting and will give me the most accurate idea of what I am getting myself into as well as offer some decent study tips..

Do you think they set them aside and send them all at once? That's evil!

What are the large firm prospects during 2L, assuming you have grades in the top 10%?

Law School Applications / What's up with LSN?
« on: February 15, 2009, 11:26:12 AM »
When I check out my top schools on LSN, there are only accepts and pending applicaitons posted. Are the rejects just not posting, or do schools make the easy decisions first and save the rejections for later.
