Watch it. That link that was provided said that if you are a current student and consolidate now, you will lose your 6 month grace period. It made it sound like you will have to start paying as soon as school ends instead of giving you 6 months after graduation. That could be a big deal depending on your situation.

This is my biggest concern.  I don't want to be stuck begging for food while I'm trying to study for the bar.

Just be thankful yours are posted somewhere.  I have to wait for mine in the mail, and they're not even due to the registrar until Friday.   >:(

Current Law Students / Re: Favorite Evidence Study Aid/Supplement?

The E&E sucks for Evidence.  It's very small, and I found that I got more out of reading the ACN to the FRE than the E&E (wow, so many letters).  I've heard that the EZ Rules book is good, and I borrowed the "Roadmap" from a friend a few times and found it helpful.

I would use pen because of the permanency (sp?), and in a one of those spiral binders which already has the line paper attached to the binder.  And if you have handouts, put it in the open pockets that come attached to these binders.

 ??? ::) :o >:( your an idiot, R U even in law school?!?!?!!!111 you should definately use pencil bcos that way U can ERASE something if you fvcked it up and then you wont have to make a mess and only dorks have binders.  like me, i'm way too cool for a binder. 

I love you guys.   ;)

Ohio State has an academic bundle for $155 that has XP Pro, Office 2003, and a bunch of other ancillary crap.

Quote from: Ezekiel
I know at Michigan you need pro, at least for full functionality, like printing.

Uh-oh, can we trust you two to be on the same board together without causing trouble?   :D

Current Law Students / Re: Grading Curve Question
« on: May 23, 2005, 07:58:33 AM »
Here's a cut and past from Registrar website at my school (Ohio State):

Ds and Es - Not more than 4 percent with the direction that a D or E should be given only when inferior performance is clearly demonstrated


I must be too old or something, because I've never heard of an "E" grade before.  It that one of those things where you fail, but you don't have to feel bad because you can say, "oh no, I didn't get an F, I got an E"?  :)

You might want to check out the "Distance Education Law Schools" forum on this board.  Those folks could probably help you out with some information.  :)

I think I'm probably going to take both next year.  I figure that way no matter what happens on the bar I won't have to wonder what would have happened had I taken PMBR.   

Current Law Students / Re: For 1Ls: Open Book v. Closed Book
« on: May 22, 2005, 11:27:11 AM »
Even if it may be a "closed book" exam, if they allow you to go to the bathroom, it becomes "open book", in case they give you all the questions to answer to from the very beginning of the exam.

You know, I've often wondered about that at my school.  There are more than a few classmates of mine whose bladders seem to mysteriously shrink come exam day.   :-\

Current Law Students / Re: Should I sell my 1L text books?
« on: May 19, 2005, 08:07:46 AM »
Sell them.  I took mine to book buyback and the guy offered me about $35 for the whole stack.  I put them on the web, and so far I've made $200.
