Current Law Students / Re: False Confidence on the Bar
« on: July 04, 2008, 03:00:33 PM »

Every one is making lots of sense. Lots. This thread has become very interesting and every one here is making great contributions. Except this RickLax character. He is just not making any sense to me. Phew I dunno man..

Listen.  I think it's pretty clear that you don't like Rick Lax.  But to simply follow his posts around a make negative comments for your own amusement is rather sad.
One glance at your post history tells the tale of who you are and what you are about.  I encourage you to spend more time at XOXO and less time here muddying the waters with your pointless criticism of a person that you don't like.

What's more annoying than Ouffha? Every other poster on this board who feels the need to tell Ouffha to please play nice with RickLax.

Of all the people who have posted in this thread so far, I only agree with Luziana, 008, and NoUsername. The rest are just not making any sense to me.

Part of the problem is that you are not cool enough to hang out in Wicker Park Hookah Bars. Once you become hipster enough for that, the world will be your oyster.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Best and Worst Advice
« on: June 27, 2008, 03:46:49 PM »
Worst advice I did not follow:
++ Several items from my undergrad pre-law advisor. She told me to only apply to two or three schools total; she told me to use the paper-trail method rather than the LSDAS electronic apps; she told me to apply in the month of February; she told me that the school would not deliver a certification letter that I had completed my BA; she told me that no more than a few grads of that school per year can attend law school because the LSDAS has "quotas"; she failed  to respond to my initial queries in March because she was on sabbatical and had not placed anyone in charge of delivering mail to her.

Amazing, no? It's part of her JOB to know more than any of that.

Worst advice I did follow:
++ Don't bother with much LSAT studying, the test is pretty much "genetic" and therefore you can't prep for it. (Also from idiot pre-law advisor, above.)

Best advice I did not follow:
++ Apply early.

Best advice I did follow:
++ Get out of school and develop a real life and real job experience. You'll be a much better candidate, much more tempting to the admissions committees, if you're someone OTHER than the typical "I majored in English / History / Poli-Sci and now I don't know what I want to do with my life so I'll go to law school as a backup plan."
++ Take time out of your life to complete applications, to keep an eye on the electronic side of things, to generally "be involved" with the process. It's really incompatible with a full-time job, and it really requires adequate reliable home-based internet access. Though you COULD do it "by hand" and "by mail" you will be out of the loop. I therefore bought my first "real" internet access for my home. I now have DSL with the company's modem, my wireless router, and a laptop with Wi-Fi in my house. Glad I did it.

I cannot believe a Pre-Law adviser was behind that simply terrible information. Having worked as the campus pre-law adviser at my school this year, I seriously hope you reported her to a superior as that level of misinformation should be criminal.

17th...I guess it is not weeks. I know the Chicago classes have two full weeks though, ending on the 10th.

I have cut out reading the CMR entirely the day before and spend some of that time reviewing my outlines/making and reviewing black letter law flash cards. This has helped a lot. Tons of MBE questions also help ram a lot of the elements home.

There is also the whole week of non-substantive study with the MBE/MPT review and then the weeks before the actual exam after Bar/Bri classes end. I figure those days will make it a hell of a lot easier to "learn" everything we have gone over.

I'm using my laptop for Illinois

Current Law Students / Re: Why is Cooley Law so despised?
« on: June 17, 2008, 09:24:18 PM »
I for one am jealous for the seats available in Cooley's library. I trace most of my hatred, nay, envy, of Cooley to that.

Tag, as I was ready to blow my brains out prior to this thread.

Incoming 1Ls / Iowa Students: Flooding a Concern?

Is the flooding affecting the law school at all?

This article makes it sound like the campus may be in for some real trouble:
