Transferring / LOR's from College Profs
« on: April 09, 2006, 08:04:11 PM »
Would it be acceptable to get 1 recommendation from an old college professor and 1 from a law school professor?
I just graduated from college last year, and can get an amazing recommendation from my old college professor.
And if I go with just current law school professors I probably will not get as an amazing a letter I would get from my college professor.

Studying and Exam Taking / Which Subject to Screw
« on: December 06, 2005, 09:18:41 PM »
Ok so considering (probably bad choice of word after a contracts exam) that torts, civ pro, and property are all only worth 2 credits this semester and the midterm accounts for 25% of the grade, which class should get screwed in study time for Criminal Law which is 3 credit and 100% of the grade.

I am thinking civ pro because it seems the easiest and probably the exam everyone will be bunched together in the curve.

Suffolk / Bad Library Etiquette at Suffolk
« on: December 05, 2005, 12:48:48 AM »

So some girl actually had 3 calls while in the quiet room, and in all those conversations she started talking on the phone when she was 10ft. from the door.
Why couldn't she wait til she walked 10 more times and went out. That's bad etiquetter but it oddly gives a place for that exam frustration to go.

Suffolk / Anyone have Ferrey

Anyone have Ferrey for Contracts
He is pretty tough in class but says he is not looking to fail people on the midterm.
He's a smart man that I think has some issues with clear communication because he is too smart.

Anyone have Ferrey and know if prefers UCC questions over Common Law?

(Please Excuse any typos many many hours of hypos and exam questions have taken its toll)

1L job search / Finally can use OCDP! Anyone have D.C. tips

I don't know if anyone else has not been able to go to OCDP but here at my school we couldn't even look at OCDP until the 1st of November
Does anyone have any tips on trying to get an internship in D.C.

Thank you

Here is what i am hoping is a promising situation.
MY UGPA is 2.4. But after my freshman year when i finally gave up on the pre-med realm, my gpa has been a steady 3.3 With a 3.7 in my major (political science). My LSAT score is 165 and I have been president of a large active club since my sophmore year ( if that helps any).
  Is there any chance of me getting into any reputable schools. I am currently looking at Fordham, Brooklyn Law, Pace, Temple, Villanova, UPITT, BU, BC, New England Law, Cardoza, NEw York Law, American, and Syracuse.
  Anyone have any ideas?
