Where should I go next fall? / Re: Catholic Law
« on: March 21, 2005, 11:19:08 AM »
Anyone know what they do with the money from students who decide to go elsewhere (the ones who were given scholarships and declined, I mean)? Does it get redistributed?

That sure would be nice!  Something to ask about during the admit weekend, I guess.  I really liked Catholic when I visited, too.  I spent about an hour talking with a 2L and a 2004 grad at the library desk, and they were very enthusiastic about the school and how close they felt with their sectionmates even beyond 1L, because there's such a strong community.  Anyway, I hope to see you on the 1st and 2nd.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: laptop for law school

Macs are quality products, but some prefer the PC interface.  The only reason I would not recommend them for law school is that many schools' exam software isn't compatible with Macs.  A bunch of people in my mod are now trying to figure out who's PC they can borrow for the exam period.

Some schools allow you to rent laptops for exams.

I just got my CUA letter today: $14,500 Faculty Fellowship award, renewable each year provided I remain in "good standing"...nice, I wonder what's considered good standing (in UG I think it means about a 2.0?)

According to CUA's "Announcements 2004-2005," Good Standing (p. 89) is cumulative 2.15 with minimum semester average of 1.82.

Or they're hoping you don't write the answers on your hand or arm...

No ink pens are allowed (check the rules).
Only pencils and highlighters.

I wish there was some sort of highlighter-pencil combo pen available.  It was kind of a pain to keep track of my highlighter during the test.  Couldn't keep it on the desk because of the slope; hardly enough room there on the desk for the test book itself, anyway.  Oh well... it's over!

I used a highlighter just on the RC section.  The only way it was really helpful for me was that it was much easier to see what I thought was important, compared to marking the passage with my pencil.  Didn't matter (for me) for LR and AR since they're not long passages of text.

Good luck!
