Incoming 1Ls / Re: laptop for law school
« on: March 15, 2005, 09:25:07 PM »
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!

Come on now, we are trying to become lawyers, not astronauts

lol  :P
That's what my PS was about.

I hope I don't sound like this in person?

That was hilarious!
I'm bustin' a gut! :D

i know from my experience of doing about 13 of the damn practice tests, my scores varied over a pretty wide range (160-170).  any test that yields such varying results seems to be a poor indicator to me.  there's a big difference between that 160 and 170.  i've noticed some other people having some wide-ranging scores.  is this the norm for everyone or are there just a few of us freaks?

I had a large range, too, 163 - 174.  But I also had the problem that I was never able to take a test in its entirety in one sitting because of my baby.  :-\  I generally did 2 sections at once, and would come back a half hour or hour later to finish the test.  I did "feel the burn" (and then some) on LSAT day because of it... but as long as my score is not below my practice range, I guess I'll be okay with it (enough not to take that thing again, anyway).

Plus Colorado is trying to vote in a change that will split their electoral college votes according to the state's popular vote - which I believe is a good thing - but only if all states do so...otherwise again their votes mean more than mine.

Not necessarily, since Colorado is apparently pretty divided.

Anybody else concerned about election fraud with all the electronic voting systems?  I sure hope this election doesn't have to be decided by the SC again.  I think if the results are disputed like in 2000, it will probably hurt the country and our international relations more than even the Iraq war.
