General Board / Re: NOT going to class
« on: September 10, 2009, 05:38:59 PM »
flame flame flame.

Why go to class?!!?  LOLZ that's ridiculous!  What do those old windbags know that a hornbook won't tell me?  Besides, I'm sure they will test and grade from hornbooks...definitely not what they cover in class.

Are you a 1L?  Because the reality is the black letter law is the black letter law.  Short of going to a TTT where they keep track of attendance and have quizzes and what not, most higher ranked schools are pretty standard. 

If you learn a hornbook and study a general outline from your SBA bank, you can easily do as well if not better than the guy who sat through class every day.  That's law school.

No, I'm a 2L who f*cking killed it my 1L year by going to class and saying what the professor wanted to hear on his exam.

What do I care?  Stay home and paint your toenails and play mariokart  all day.  ITE you might as well gamble with your GPA.  Maybe I will get a B!!  ZOMG!

Does this mean transfer to GULC?  You will not be getting callbacks.

thanks for the subtle words of encouragement

transfer to a T14.

8 interviews the last 2 days, no callbacks yet. 4 more tomorrow.

Starting to sweat.

I posted earlier in the group.  I'll message you, though, researching places for tomorrow is motherfucking BO-RING.

I hear that.

I am praying for at least a couple call-backs.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Hardest Law Schools

Law students are intense everywhere, except maybe Yale.  That's just what happens when you foist competition on smart, driven people who have been told that they're special their whole lives.

you mean I'm not special.  I think my mother would disagree.

Hi All,

I'm starting at DePaul in the fall part time and was going to invest in a new notebook. Mine is a little old and slow and I'm sure will crash on me sooner than later.

I was wondering if any of your fellow students had macs or do they pretty much use PC's?

Thanks much!
Nat

I would say 30% of my class take notes on macs (including myself).  So many people have them that compatibility issues are no longer a problem.  For example, examsoft, the laptop test-taking software, is now available for mac.  Good luck this coming year.

You will have access to a free digital copy from West once you start school.  Don't buy one.

If you start school and find yourself using the West copy often, buy the pocket version.

I agree.  I have a print one and never use it.  The only time it has come in handy is during law review write-on when you are not allowed to go on westlaw.  If you need it then, just check it out for a week from your library.  When you are writing a brief and using westlaw black's, it is nice to be able to copy and paste.

Transferring / Re: Is transfering worth it?
« on: July 14, 2009, 10:23:10 AM »
I was recently admitted to Notre Dame Law School.  I currently go to a T3.  I have a full ride and finished 6th in my class, graded on to law review.  Eventually, I'd like to get an LL.M. and maybe even try to teach.  I'd also like to clerk after graduation.  I know that most people on these boards are waiting to hear about some really top of the top schools.  But if anyone has any advice on what they'd do, I'd appreciate it.

I would transfer.  Although I agree that teaching from either school would probably be difficult, obtaining a judicial clerkship would be a lot easier.  http://law.nd.edu/careers/judicial-clerkships  ND had 3 SCOTUS clerks in the last 8 years and no offense, I doubt your T3 has the same stats.  Good luck deciding and congrats on the acceptance.
