Current Law Students / Re: National Placement

well what i'm really getting at is: would I get a better job in NY from a top 30 school with a national name than a t2 in the new york area?

Current Law Students / National Placement

I know t14 schools are nationally recognized and a lot of them can get you a job anywhere in the country...I'm just wondering how schools ranked a little lower like 20-40 place maybe BC, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Fordham or schools of that type...any experience or input?

People on here generally like to remain anonymous and not give out the name of their school...besides you can go to almost any law school's website and find the curve by searching something like "grade distribution"

thorc, did your school let you drop down to part-time tuition during the semester you slacked because of the credits from the summer externship? Also, you had to pay money for those summer credits right?

Transferring / Re: transfer potential and tier system

People like to chalk the 1L grades up to luck simply because the people you expect to do well don't, and the people who you don't expect to do well are at the top of the class. Its not about luck - it is about how well you take an exam, and how hard you work to actually learn the material. Just because someone studies 24 hours a day during exam period doesn't mean they deserve to do well, or should feel "unlucky" when they screw up, hard work throughout the semester has a lot to do with it. Also, some people just get it alot better than others, I'm not one of them, so I work my a$$ off to do mediocre.

Recomendations on hornbooks for Crim Law, Torts, and Contracts?

Did decent last semester...did the best in the classes I had the most helpful supplements recomendations for the best hornbooks for these classes would really be appreciated.

Are the E&E any good for torts or contracts?

I don't know about the first part of your question...but I have also been wondering about the second part. I didn't come in with any type of scholarship, while it seems like 70% of the class did, they need to stay in the top 50% to keep their scholarships - so if I am in the top half, it only makes sense that I should be able to take over someone else's scholarship money right? I know my school allows people to increase their scholarship for doing well, so why shouldn't I be able to increase mine from nothing to at least a couple g's?

It makes sense, anyone have experience with this? How did you go about asking?

Current Law Students / second semester apathy
« on: January 13, 2008, 05:36:25 PM »
just finished first semester of 1L - did pretty well too...still can't seem to get motivated for this semester, been leaving all my work to the last minute, doing it in the morning before class, and not being able to pay attention at all during class....

Is this a normal thing after first semester? I am gonna end up doing real bad if this continues...does it get better?

well I appreciate that I will remember more come bar exam time...but thats years away for me and I think I'd rather play paintball naked in the snow, with nail guns, than continue memorizing the UCC
