i'm currently a 1L at tech and love it!! i'm about as liberal as they come, and i haven't had any issues with the school being "too conservative." they have a great Tech Law democrats organization that is just about as popular as the republican society. If you have any specific questions about curves, the people, the professors, or lubbock in general, feel free to message me : ) best of luck in making your choice. of course i'm biased, so GO TECH LAW!

Learned Hand is obviously the best judge.  Here's a few facts about him (credit: my classmates).

Learned Hand once overruled the law of gravity, because he could.

Learned Hand has jurisdiction everywhere, because by living in a world ruled by his laws, we have purposefully availed ourselves of him

Learned Hand's dissenting opinions are binding authority--forever.

Learned Hand invented the Mailbox Rule at a time that mailboxes did not exist.

When God created the first Earth, Learned Hand did not think it was good enough and remanded with instructions consistent with his opinion.

Learned hand skips the "discovery" phase of trial on grounds of his omniscience.

Nobody dissents from Learned Hand ... twice.

HAHAHA this just made my day! just finished reading it aloud to some of fellow classmates in the library. Someone felt we should add "Learned Hand's middle name is 12(b)(6)."

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Any info on Lubbock andTexas Tech Law?

i actually am a 1L here at ttu this year. i had a couple of choices as to where i wanted to attend school (some actually ranked higher than tech); however, i am EXTREMELY pleased with my decision to attend school here. i'm a big city girl, so i was concerned about the transition to lubbock, but it hasnt been as bad as i was expecting. i absolutely love the people up here, as well as the school itself, and i couldn't be happier (of course, we'll see if i'm still whistling the same tune once finals come around)! feel free to message me if you have questions about tech and lubbock!! : )

Where should I go next fall? / asking for money from a school?
« on: April 23, 2008, 02:19:19 AM »
hey all! just looking for some opinions/suggestions... basically, i am 90% certain about where i will be attending this fall. that school currently has not offered me a scholarship. i did, however, receive a pretty hefty scholarship offer from a school a tier lower. should i try to use this to leverage some money from the school i will likely be attending come august? how would i go about doing this? regardless of if they offer me money or not, i will still attend (obviously i would like to avoid having to disclose that fact should i try to negotiate some scholarship funds). it'd just be nice to get a little bit of financial help, of course :) thanks in advance! any thoughts or suggestions much appreciated!

Studying for the LSAT / Notre Dame seat deposit deadlines
« on: March 31, 2008, 11:18:08 PM »
so this is a ridiculously random question that doesn't really apply to me, but o well. does anyone know when ND's deadline is to turn in a deposit?

I applied at the end of October and was told i'd have a decision by approximately January 8. Still haven't heard anything. Sent an email back in February and they apologized for the delay and informed me that no decisions had been made yet. I'm not really expecting anything other than a rejection, but I am wondering if perhaps they are waiting to see how many people turn in their deposits prior to sending me a decision? (wishful thinking haha)
