for evidence, i found the e&e and law in a flash very, helpful. law in a flash was particularly helpful because my exam was closed book - not even the federal rules! the flashcards helped a lot with hearsay, which is a total pain in the ass.

it is so hard to do, but honestly, the best thing is to just forget about an exam once you've taken it and focus on what you have left to do. one of my 1L professors gave some really great advice - he said an "a" exam answer generally only addresses about 60% of all possible issues. no one is going to get everything! so i really wouldn't beat yourself up too much about stuff that pops into your head after the fact. i'm sure you will hear this a lot, but many of the exams that i felt like i totally bombed actually wound up being my best grades in that semester. seriously though, once you've taken an exam, don't think about it too much. it will just distract you from everything else you have to do, and stress you out.

oooh, good question. my guess is uva gold for mens. who did they play in the final round?

no clue about co-rec.

i would say don't worry about it. when i started law school, i had to learn to write all over again. the type of writing i learned as an undergrad was actually not beneficial to me at all. so, you actually may benefit from not having a writing background. also, law schools typically accept people from all backgrounds - they don't just want folks that have a background in writing heavy courses in undergrad. i think you'll be fine.

go to leicester square and buy cheap tickets to one of the shows. there are a bunch of stands that sell tickets for all sorts of different shows and theaters. they usually have a good selection of tickets that are reasonably priced.

anyone know anything about snowshoe in west va?

congrats on making the decision! good luck at UF!

i would look at things in terms of where you would want to be in case transferring does not pan out. if you do not wind up being able to transfer for whatever reason, would you rather be in kentucky or florida long term? this could potentially be the law school you wind up spending 3 years at!

The Bosstones are ok, but I am not too into them. Not everyone else is trying to be them either. What wave are they considered? I don't know too much about them. The Aquabats and Save Ferris are only good if you listen to old school though. They have changed a lot. The Aquabats don't even have a horn section anymore. Also, Save Ferris broke up. Those are the bands I grew up listening to, so those are the ones I like. I forgot to mention that I also like Jeffries Fan Club, but I don't listen to them that much. I think this infatuation is an Orange County thing.

Also, it isn't stuck up becuase I actually do not like music that much. I don't listen to it very often. Those are just the bands that I grew up listening to. I guessI'll also say that I enjoy Weird Al and things found on Dr. Demento.

wow, i have not known many people who have heard of jeffries fan club. i used to love them back in the day. they came to santa cruz a lot when i was in college and played with a local band called slow gherkin. jfc had a huge following of haters in santa cruz and eventually things got so bad that they just stopped coming. sad days!
