well i wasnt worried as much about him becoming an alcoholic as i was that he would just get wasted at home and still not meet anyone.

i know im going to sound like an jerk but what my advice is serious. just start drinking again. For starters it got me through a year in iraq so it can get u through law school. on top of that it will help u lose some anxiety and break the stress before finals. Dont drink at home. i dont think that will help u. go out a smaller bar around the same time every couple of days. start to meet the bartenders and the regulars. it might help u make friends. i have also found that the more enjoyable law students like to drink. its a good way to hang out with kids outside of class. while your out with people just dont talk about school. after the bar invite people back to your place to watch a sports game and take the hit on a 24 pack and a bottle of liquor. this will make people want to invite u when they have people over.

I would agree with the good doctor; maybe a court could go the other way, but I think they'd really have to strain to do so.  The argument is at least colorable, but it looks like a stretch.  Isn't there some sort of old maxim which says something like the contract (or offer) is normally to be construed against the party who made it (the idea being that if they really meant for it to say something, they could and should have been more clear in communicating that)? 

that is usually only in adhesion contracts. if the two people r at equal bargaining strengths the court doesnt follow that. the idea is that if both r equal u dont want both sides to be afraid to put the eqaully agreed upon terms donw on paper. that wouldnt make since. in terms of adhesion contracts where one side is in a much stronger position that is a rule that courts use.

i think the court would read it more narrowly. i suppose it couldnt hurt to throw it in though. i would just point out that its an arugment that could be raised but probably wouldnt work.

actually in some states its when u recieve the offer. If the offer is recinded befor the person accepts their is no contract. since e opened the letter befor he heard the message then their is a binding contract. if he would have heard the message first then opened the letter in those states their would not be a contract.

wow. my law school is alot more laid back. everyone here is nice. i havent heard of one person refusing to help someone. lots of us play football together on fridays and go out and drink together on thursday nights.

Look heres what it boils down to. Do all of the required reading. study hard for finals. ask for help when u need it and help out anyone who asks u for help. At the end of the day if u do these things you will be alright.

On top of that i guess my advice would be if u hate your school so much try and transfer. i love OU law and as an extra bonus we have a decent football team.

true. u should right down the teachers comments in the  right next to the restatment then go back and copy what she said with the restatements befor the test and memorize them. I should throw out that i am a 1L so this is what i will be doing for finals and i have not gotten a law school exam back yet. so take my with a grain of salt.
