Where should I go next fall? / Re: BYU
« on: February 16, 2005, 10:23:28 PM »
I heard back about three weeks after I applied in mid November, but don't know how many there have been since then.  You might check last year's stats on LSN.

quick highjack . . .
Yo Sordo, are you going to that thing on Friday?  Know what I'm talking about?

Nope. Although I just realized it's at The Chef's Table which is a NICE restaurant.  Doh. Oh well.  I went to Elder Oaks' talk last week to the J Reuben Clark Law Society and sat in the fourth row.  Amazing.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Speed Reading Courses?
« on: February 16, 2005, 08:56:25 PM »
Law school reading required copious and fastidious amounts of higher-level thinking skills; as such, time spent reading is not so much spent on reading as thinking.

I could "read" a case in ten minutes, by the most literal definition of the word, but it could very easily take three hours or more to delve into all of the intricacies associated with said case.  This is why law students spend time in the library- not because they're working on phonics and reading speed.

I think that a speed-reading course would be a waste of time.  If you find a speed-thinking course, however, let me know.  That's the only course that will help in law school.

Uhh, okay.

1. Have you/someone you know ever taken a speed reading course?
2. Was it worthwhile?
3. How long did it take to become proficient?
4. Where was it taken?
5. Do the benefits stay with you long after the fact?

I'll bring this thread back from the dead...

I was just approved to take the Patent Bar, so i have to take it before May 22nd. My undergrad is in Computer Science, and from a school that doesn't have some special certification (most CS programs don't, i've been told), so i had to go through "option 4" to prove that i had the necessary coursework. It was kind of a pain, but not too hard, and i had my answer within a week.

I'm dedicating 200 hours with the PatBar materials, so we'll see how it goes ...


Awesome. Good luck with the studying.  Report back here from time to time, (on this thread) and let us know how it's going.  I'd be curious to know.

Acceptances / Re: Chicago vs. NYU

There was just a pretty long thread on this (posted yesterday I think) if you look around.  Try a search.  In it someone referenced a long similar thread on xoxoth that's worth checking out.  No need to reinvent the wheel.

Bump is when you want to get the topic going again and so you enter a "bump" post to get it at the top of the recent messages list.  There's really no word for the unread replies thing.

Such a joke that they REQUIRE the parental information.  If so, maybe I can convince my parents to offer the help Need Access is assuming they will ;)  I kind of want to do this completely on my own, though...

you need a technician...unless u want to screw it up...my man..get to calling the 800 number..okay.?

I'll have my bro look at it.  When it comes down to it, if it's a firewall issues, I'd rather be protected and see no avatars than not be protected so I can see avatars.

DEF. Wise choice.
