3L job search / Re: memoir on the resume
« on: June 20, 2008, 12:09:22 AM »
you know, it is the first thing that comes up when your name gets googled, so it is going to look worse for you when your employers find it anyway.

So you're saying I should 'front' it.  Mmm...perhaps.

General Board / Post-Bar, Pre-Work
« on: May 26, 2008, 11:18:27 PM »
Do a lot of people go on vacation after the bar?  Before work starts?  Or is that sort of thing frowned upon...?

Bar Exam / MicroMash
« on: May 26, 2008, 11:17:03 PM »
Is anybody else using MicroMash?  Or does anybody know people who've used it in the past?  I'm just taking it because I can't go back to a law school classroom ever again.

Bar Exam / Re: Failing the Bar: The Opposite of Awful Disease

Seriously, if we wanted to read your sh*tty blog posts, we would go read your blog.  PLEASE STOP REPOSTING THEM HERE.

No, I repost them on the blog.

Whenever somebody contracts some awful disease or undergoes some awful family tragedy and gets interviewed by the local news about it, they always say the same thing: “You see this in the news all the time, but you never think it can happen to you. And then one day it does…”

I think failing the bar exam is the opposite. Everybody thinks it will happen to them, but it only really happens to a select few. I realized that early on, that the math says I’ll likely pass the bar exam, so I haven‘t been too worried about it. Well, yesterday I found out that one of my friends took the bar exam six months ago…and failed it.
 
Sure, she took it during the school year, so she probably didn’t have enough time to study. But still, she’s a smart girl and she failed. Took a prep class and everything. Now it’s starting to hit home. Some people really fail this thing.

Tomorrow I’m going to figure out how to get my hands on review books. And then, beginning Monday, I’m going to start studying. I’m going to try to study all day, every day. Oh, and I’m going to work all day, every day to promote Lawyer Boy.

General Board / sweaty graduation
« on: May 24, 2008, 05:11:23 PM »
Graduation was rough. First of all, I was sick. Soar throat, runny nose, that sort of thing. Second of all, under my heavy robe, my hood, my cap, my wool suit, my dress shirt and tie, my undershirt, I was sweating like a pedophile. Third, I still had a paper due. In the middle of the semester, my prof said that I could turn it in whenever I wanted.

“You mean, I can turn it in after graduation?”

“Sure you can. I know you’re good for it.”

At the time it seemed like a blessing. During graduation, not so much. I know I would have easily got it done if he had set a due date. Can’t blame him, though. Only myself.

Law School Applications / Re: Applying To 26 Law Schools?!
« on: May 21, 2008, 02:58:14 PM »
>:(

Quit bumping your threads when you have nothing substantive to add.  You may have increased your blogs traffic this way but  it will definitely not help your book sales.  I'm pretty sure that most of these visitors who come from this site detest you and your off-topic posts.  If you really aren't trying to promote your blog then go over to the current students section and leave us 0Ls alone. 

Your off putting trolling has definitely soured my view of you and your book.  If I ever see it in a book store I will pick it up and move it to the bottom shelf of the romance novels section where only bored housewives will ever come across it.

Hmmm...I think it will help book sales.  Just drive more people to my website, -RickLax

But I will do lots of new posts soon.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: in class exams v. take home exams
« on: May 21, 2008, 02:56:57 PM »
Word.  Take home exams are lame.  Much easier to distinguish yourself on an in-class exam.

Rick Lax, why the fukin d-bag photos on your website?  Good luck with your book and all.  Your home page photo just looks like a faggy come hither pose.  Perhaps, that is the target audience?  Hey if you make $$$, who cares, right?

Are you implying that I shouldn't want gay people to buy my book?  I definitely want gay people buying my book.  So in that sense, yes, who cares.  Uh...straight people too.  All, really.
