Current Law Students / Re: The study habits of others...
« on: September 06, 2005, 09:32:43 PM »
I actually have a class that requires us to do a typed brief of every case.  Does this seem weird to anyone?
(I dont brief for any of my other classes, but I attribute that to personal laziness)

Current Law Students / Re: What the hell are schools in New Orleans doing?

I know this applies more to undergrads than law students, but...

I was president of my frat at tulane LAST fall (and the spring before), and I guess my phone number must be still on some databases.... Anyway, I (and the current president) have been getting calls from our chapters all across the country.  They've all said the same thing, if anyone is displaced and wants to go to their school, have them get in touch.  They all say that their school is accepting tulane students, at least for visiting semesters, and that our frat will provide free housing (and meal plan in some cases).  Pretty great offer.. good way to make something good out of such a bad situation, and maybe experience a part of the country you've always wanted to.  This is only one fraternity, but I assume other greek organizations will make similar offers. 

And the offer can probably be extended to any law (or other grad) student at tulane or loyola who was in a greek house during undergrad.  (brothers for life, you know)

We all got assigned lockers at my school.  It just adds to the "back in high school" vibe.  Oh yeah, there's a prom too.  Seriously.

Current Law Students / Re: Anyone exited for 1L?

Must be Santa Clara.  I've spent alot of time in the area and took my lsat's on the campus as well. 

My cousin just graduated from SC law school and commuted from Hayward everyday so its definitely possible.  I was going to warn you about the traffic but then I saw that you're moving from NY so no new surprises there!  Anyways, welcome to the sunshine state.  I'm moving from SF to Philly so I'm headed in the opposite direction...  bye cali...

I just relocated from New Orleans to Philly for 1L.  What school in Philly are you headed to?  I'll be at 'Nova but am living 15 minutes away in the Manayunk section of Philly (with my roomate who is at Temple).  I'm not looking forward to my first winter.  Bye bye golf in january...

Manayunk is party central in Philly. At least you will have something to do when you are taking a break from studying.

you're right, but it still seems tame compared to nola... this is probably for the better, though.  its downright quiet around here on the weekdays -- can't say the same for where I spent the last four years.  again, probably a good thing.   ;)

I'm going to Temple.. = )

As far as living in Manayunk, the city is pretty cool.  My gf goes to med school in Philly and lives near Manayunk so I've been out to visit and party a few times.  I think Manayunk will be much busier once all the students return from summber break since there are so many schools in the area.  Also, there are some other areas in downtown Philly that you might enjoy. 

I went to UC Davis undergrad in Cali and had some pretty wild times too.  I think 1L is going to be a culture shock...



that's a good point, i didn't even think of that... anyway good luck with your move man.  hit me up if you want to "blaze.1" when you get here

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Alcohol at law school?
« on: September 14, 2005, 07:54:35 PM »
alcohol being provided at campus events was a very common occurence at my undergrad, but of course I went to Tulane, and in Nola the rules were a little different..

In the undergrad business school, there would be events a few times per semester called TGIT (thank god its thursday), that would involve kegs and usually food (pizza, crawfish, whatever) on the porch at the b-school building, open to all undergrad business students. i can't imagine this sort of thing went on everywhere, though...

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Just set up OneNote
« on: August 21, 2005, 10:04:58 PM »
thank you all for your input... in my messing around, the best i could do was figure out how to put a button up that opens the Insert>Symbol character map thing.. I think i am also going to take rhapsody's advice of setting up autocorrect with SS for section symbol, PP for pi, and DD for delta.  that way i always think about the defendant and big boobs.

one more question:  this probably applies to OneNote or any other program anyone would be using to take notes.

So you're typing along in class, and want to insert a symbol, like a Pi, Delta, or that little section thing.  Instead of Typing Alt+206F (i think thats it for delta but could be wrong), or going to Character map, or Instert>symbol... is there a better way to do this?  Knowing I'm going to use those three symbols alot, can I set them to a menu button, or at least a keyboard shortcut (or unused function key)?   

Anyone have any ideas?  I know i'm not the only one who thought of this... and I'd rather not just use "P" and "D" because I think the symbol stands out more on re-read

Could a few people post the templates they are using with Onenote? Maybe we could find a website to upload them to and share. That would be awesome. Anybody interested?

just bought this program today (based on this thread and the few others about it), $39 @ staples (after rebate)... I start 1L next week and I would like to see how other people have it all set up.  I am not really sure how to go about it, as I am inexperienced with the program, and, more importantly, with law school in general.  Any advice would be great
