Incoming 1Ls / Re: How difficult can it really be... seriously?
« on: April 15, 2009, 07:17:31 AM »
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 Admissions / What's up with LSN?

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.

Would that mean you endorse his approach?

Do you have any idea if any Mercer 1L's worked as summer associates for a large firm? Is that an impossible goal coming from Mercer? I heard from another Mercer Grad that there are some 1L summer opportunities in Macon, but rarely in Atlanta. Does the Career Services Office assist you in securing paid summer employment?

Have you guys read this article on TLS? What do you think about the students approach? I think he has some valid points, but I am anticipating my social life will suffer a little while in law school. However, I like the view of always keeing the end game in sight, which is the final exam. Any thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Re: Read my LOCI and I'll be your LSD BFF

I was going to start a new topic for this but I can just ask here.

It has been 3 months since going complete at some of my tope schools. Does this warrent a LOCI? I feel like they are going to make a decision by the end of the month, so I am wondering if a LOCI would help or hurt. Any thoughts?
