If you practice in TN for a designated period of time, are you then eligible to take the bar exam or to qualify for reciprocity in other states?

If I had to guess, I'd say some of what you're feeling is jitters.  However, if you are seriously doubting whether or not you want to make the three-year (and multi-thousand dollar) committment to law school, give it some more thought before you decide to go.  Talk to people you know in law school and/or browse around these boards and see what law students really think about and do during their three/four years.

If you're just nervous about starting, that's completely normal.  If you really want to go, don't freak yourself out of law school before you start.   ;)

Good luck!

Well I got my grades yesterday, and it was much better news than I expected.   ;D  Now I only have to endure the grade wait two more times!

I have to give credit to the registrar's office, they got those puppies out fast once the professors finally got them in.

I'm not usually a study aid-purchasing kind of person (library = free study aids for all!), but I broke down and bought the S&S for Wills and Trusts.  I'll be traveling a lot in the next two weeks, and I figure I can listen to them while I'm in the car.  I have a feeling it's going to make a 5-hour drive seem like a 10-hour drive, but maybe (hopefully) I'll learn something.

The worst part is that I don't know which will come first--my spring grades or my summer finals.  No, wait, I know what will happen.  My grades will come on the day of my Trusts exam.  That way, I'll either not open them and be distracted wondering what they are, open them and be distracted by disappointment, or open them and be distracted by happiness. 

Okay, I'm finished bitching now.  :D

I found out over the weekend that the school website LIED, and our grades aren't even due to the registrar until today, which means, if we're extremely lucky, they MIGHT go out in the mail by Friday.   >:(

I called the registrar and he told me it would be two more weeks for the rank

My school doesn't re-rank us until the fall, which I like . . . that way if I bombed any of the spring classes, I can make up for it in the summer.   :D

Current Law Students / Re: Floppy drives

Like Brooklaw said, check with your school!  Don't listen to these people that are telling you definitively that you do not need an external floppy drive.  While there's little chance you will need a one for anything else, you MIGHT need one for exams.  While most schools are moving toward online submission of laptop exams, not every school is there yet.  Some exam software permits you to save your completed exam only to a floppy (NOT a CD-ROM, NOT a flash drive). 

If you don't know who to ask yet, don't worry about it for now.  Just wait until you find out whether you actually need one for exams and then buy one on the cheap.  Good luck!

You know there's a Yuengling brewery in Tampa so there's no problem finding that B&T. 

Hmm, places to see:

If you're a sports nut like me:
-Bright House Networks Field in Clearwater, home of the Threshers and Phillies spring training)
-Legends Field in Tampa (home of the Tampa Yankees and Yankees spring training)
-Knology Park (home of the Dunedin Blue Jays and Blue Jays spring training)
-Raymond James Stadium (home of the B-U-C-S, Bucs, Bucs, Bucs!)
-The Trop (home of the D-Rays)

Fun/beach stuff
-Pier 60/Clearwater Marina/Clearwater Beach
-John's Pass/Treasure Island (definitely eat at Crabby Bill's in Madeira Beach)
-Sand Key
-Honeymoon Island
-Frenchy's Rockaway Grill (you MUST eat here too)
-Palm Pavilion

Bars, bars, and more bars
-Ybor City (ask anyone down there, they'll know how to get there)
-Channelside District
-Hyde Park
-Downtown St. Pete

Artsy/interesting stuff:
-Plant Museum at The University of Tampa
-TB Performing Arts Center
-Dali museum in St. Pete
-Sunshine Skyway bridge and fishing pier

I'm sure I'll think of more.  I lived down there for 7 years, and I love it.  I can't wait to go back next year.
