Current Law Students / Re: Property Question

Scratch everything.

A few sections later, the author makes clear that it can be taken as an execturoy interest. 

Why don't they just say it in parentheses or a side note when talking about the remainders, that B would get something - it's just not called a remainder.  Stupid.   

We were right in the end, though.

The earlier chapters of the book are probably all about pre-1535 (or whatever year that was that they revamped everything) and then after that, the executory interest part works as you surmised.

Current Law Students / Re: What constitutes "good grades"?

the part-time students are ranked together with the full-timers upon graduation.  This is inherently unfair because full-timers have higher GPA's as a whole because they don't have jobs during the day:  their only job is attending law school. 

By the same logic, it could be argued that us full-timers shouldn't have your part-time grades mixed into our rankings, as it could be much easier for you to succeed since you're only having to take a couple classes at a time, whereas we take 5-6.

Alternatively, many part-time law students don't work full time - thus have benefits of both - a lighter load and more time to do the work. 

So are you saying part-timers should be ranked alone or that they should have separate rankings for part-timers who work full-time, part-timers who don't work, full-timers who work part-time, full-timers who don't work, etc...?

Damn, I couldn't be happier. 

The wireless feature is pretty sweet...can brief from the sofa and print to my home office.

The setup took a while, but I finally got it going with both my desktop and laptop.

It is now going for $119 w/ free shipping on amazon:

So I picked up the Brother 2170w today. 

Haven't hooked it up yet, but the demo printing I was able to do at the store made it look pretty stellar.

Costco didn't have any on the shelf so I went to Best Buy.  It was priced $154.99 there, but they price matched Costco at $139.99.

I have a Brother HL-2170w. I couldn't get the wireless to work. Can't remember why--something about how my home network is set up.
Still, I really really like it. It's fast, never jams or acts weird, and will print at least 1500 pages before I have to replace the toner.

This model is at the top of my list right now... are you pleased with the printing quality?  I know it probably isn't as refined as, say, a printer in the computer lab on campus, but overall, you feel solid printing resumes and cover letters on it?

I'm looking to purchase one and would love to hear some reviews.

After starting the 1L job search over break, I'm quickly realizing how many hundreds of pages of cover letters, resumes, labels, writing samples, etc... that I'll be printing in the next couple of years.  Instead of paying $0.10/page at school to get laser quality (I only have a mediocre inkjet at home right now), I'm seriously contemplating a laser printer in the $150-250 range.

I've spotted a couple at Sam's Club, Costco, and Best Buy that seem reasonable, but I'd love to hear some feedback here if there is any...

A couple that pique my interest:
Samsung SCX-4725FN for $275:  All-in-one coppier-scanner-printer, has wireless capability
Brother HL-2170w for $145:  Just a printer, but also wireless and is relatively small.  I'm curious if its print quality is as good as some of the others though.

Any others that anyone recommends?

I've particularly enjoyed Glannon's E&Es for CivPro and less so for Torts, and I'm wondering for next semester if anyone has any particularly strong recommendations for any supplements for Crim Law or Crim Pro that they found helpful. 


Your speech code would turn law school into a correspondence class from the University of Phoenix.

You are wasting way too much time worrying about what other people do. Focus on yourself and what you need to do to suceed in class

Do what you want to do.

Law school is full of varying attitudes, perspectives, and motivations... and this board is full of people who will make you think you're going to be hanged from the nearest tree on the law school lawn if you dare to speak up in class.

If you have a valid question or input that you'd like to toss out there, go for it ... your success and grades are in no way influenced by what your fellow students think of you.  If your reasonably-limited questions or dialogue will help you understand the material better - go for it.
