General Board / Law School Paradox
« on: February 06, 2008, 05:30:21 PM »
I haven’t yet paid my tuition. They put a “lock” on my account, meaning I can’t register for classes. I still haven’t registered for the classes I want, though. I’m signed up for this three-credit course, but I want to switch it to a one-credit course because that’s all I need to graduate. Only, if I pay my tuition, they’ll charge me for the two extra credit hours. And, like I said, if I don’t pay, the registration system won’t allow me to make the switch. 


General Board / This Quote Means...?
« on: February 06, 2008, 05:28:08 PM »
Just came across this in my Copyright book.  What does it mean?

“The court did not explain whether it considered defendant’s showing to have constituted proof overcoming the presumption of receipt arising from plaintiff’s testimony of mailing or whether it felt there was an unsatisfied burden on the plaintiff to show that the particularly responsible employees of the defendant had received his communication.”


3L job search / memoir on the resume
« on: November 11, 2007, 11:16:10 PM »
My first-year law school memoir is coming out in July.
Do I put this on the resume...or will scare some people away?  (People who think I might one day write about them....)


Studying and Exam Taking / in class exams v. take home exams
« on: November 11, 2007, 11:14:35 PM » prof asks the class whether we want to do an in-class exam or a 72-hour take home exam and EVERYBODY in the class except for me and two other people votes for the take home exam.  What the hell? Why not get it done with in 3 hours? 


General Board / You’re TOO GOOD to me.

Apparently some LSD readers have started a law school blog dedicated to making fun of my law school blog:

Your blog: WeFindYouRepulsive

My blog: LawSchoolBlogger

First of all, I’m completely flattered.  I had no idea inspired so much passion in you guys.

Second of all, I am pretty curious as to who started the blog…

Just want to know who to thank.


Studying and Exam Taking / Are They For REAL?

These classmates of mine who claim to begin studying for finals in November…are they for real?   


Socratic Method / When You DON'T Do Your Reading
« on: October 25, 2007, 01:03:28 AM »
If you haven’t done your reading for a small class (15 people or less) in which the prof calls on every student every day (and grades on participation), is it best to not show up?


General Board / AWFUL notes
« on: October 25, 2007, 01:00:42 AM »
Why is it that whenever I miss class and then ask people for their notes, they ALWAYS claim to have taken awful notes? 


General Board / The Importance of Eye Contact
« on: October 15, 2007, 11:34:50 PM »
 Today in Consumer Protection class, my professor was asking us some pretty difficult questions, and he was calling on students randomly for answers. 

Then, finally, he asked an easy question, and using the power of eye contact, I got him to call on me.

Really.  I’m not crazy.  When you want to be called on in class, if you make direct eye contact with your professor and raise your eyebrows as high as they’ll go, there’s a good chance you’ll be called on. 

Has anybody else found this to be the case?

I’ve been writing about law school for about nine months now...and I just wanted to hear what you guys thought of my blog. 

You check it out at

You’ll find lots of pictures there, and, of course, you’re welcome to make fun of everything you read. After being on LSD for a while now, I’ve come to expect that….

Still, thanks,
