I work full-time and will be starting school part-time in August. My classes are Mon. Tues. & Thurs. from 6:30p-10:30p. I don't really want to go with the "canned briefs" or "commercial outline" route, but like the previous post, it may be necessary.

Any of you prepping already? I'm ready the E&E series.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Just bought a Dell 6000d today anyone else?

I got my 6000 last week. Right out of the box, the hard drive was making a loud noise. Dell sent me a new one overnight but that one also makes a disturbing sound. My previous 2 laptops (both Dell) never made that type of noise. I am now sending it back, asking for a replacement.

Were you a little disappointed with the resolution of the screen? I've seen better on Toshibas & Sonys.

My config:

Pentium M 1.6
512 RAM
upgraded screen
DVD & CD burner
9 cell battery
extra battery
normal whistles & bells

Total: $1195.00

I too didn't like the size of the 700m and the 600m looks a little flimsy.

I start PT this fall and would love to know your typical week. Work, class, studying...what is your schedule? How much free time do you really have?

I work 7:30am-5:30pm M-F, will be going to class 3 nights a week and I'm trying to prepare for what is ahead.

I'm going part-time to Florida A&M College of Law in Orlando, Florida. I work from 7:30am-5:30pm. Are you guys worried about keeping up with the load? At FAMU, part-time is 11 hours vs. 15. Still a lot of work.

I question that promotion. The site said it started at 8:00am Eastern. I tried to purchase a laptop 4 times between 8:00am & 8:15am and repeatedly received a "expired coupon" message.

45 minutes of redemption my butt.

Incoming 1Ls / Juristudent Software - anyone using it?

Can anyone share their thoughts on this software.



Best of luck to you. These boards are enough to scare us old-timers away!

You aren't likely to find 2 and 3L's on this board.  However, as a 1L, I can tell you that the advice is on point. 

So you don't recommend book briefing?

I apologize if my posting commment made it sound like I was slamming the author of that post. That wasn't my intent.

I was hoping to hear from some 2L's & 3L's about whether their system matches this guy's. From everything I have read - in books and on various posts - book briefing is a must, however, this guy said it wasn't necessary.
