I hope you're not giving any advice in this book...

Very little.  There are just four paragraphs of tips in the whole book. They're good tips, though.

what are they?

I'm afraid you won't like my answer, but the best place to find them is on my blog.  Check out the Most Popular Posts.  Most of them are there.

if by "casebook" you mean "memoir", i think you know exactly what it means.

I hope St. Martin's doesn't charge $120 for the memoir...

well, that happened to people at my high school, but law school isnt high school fortunately and, with a decent curve, its impossible to really have a terrible dip.  I could pretty much wing exams and pull straight B+'s which arent enough to have any offer revoked.

That's good to know...not sure how I feel about this whole "law school isn't high school" thing though...

I can't decide whether you're oblivious or a very peculiar satire.

I think he's just an idiot trying to promote his blog.

I can only assume his blog consists of random discussions/rants nobody cares about, much like all the threads like this he starts on here.

My guess is that he has ideas throughout the day of things he thinks are witty or quirky that will really provoke discussion. Then, he posts them on here, day after day after day.

Why not go find out for yourself?

Current Law Students / They Left My Casebook
« on: February 25, 2008, 11:15:17 PM »
I’ve been in Chicago for three years.  In that time, I’ve had my laptop stolen from my locked gym locker and my wallet stolen twice.  I’ve also witnessed four thefts, and I’ve gotten myself involved in two of them.
 
Whenever I bring my laptop to the bookstore, I carry it with me when I stand up to walk around and look for books or use the bathroom.  I of course take my cell phone and my wallet along with me too.  I only leave behind my old laptop carrying case (which is made of canvas and has a huge hole in the bottom), my casebooks, and some pens and paper.

Yesterday, somebody stole my crappy laptop case, my $2 pens and my blank paper.

They left the $120 casebook.  What does this mean?

I’ve been studying at the Barnes & Noble next to my school for three years now. Most of the time, they play classical music and jazz…only now, they’re starting to play more and more techno, and they’re starting to play it really, really loud, and it’s starting to really piss me off.

Is the bookstore hoping to “make reading cool again?” Does techno music increase sales? Or does Barnes & Noble just want me study somewhere else?

well, at my school, the 3L's that are going to get jobs already have them, so grades do not matter.

Really?  The firms don't care if your grades dip? 
I remember all those horror stories in high school...kids, the stories went, would get into colleges, do awful in the Senior year, and then get their acceptances revoked.  Don't know anybody that actually happened to...but I remember the stories...
