Incoming 1Ls / Re: Boston Bound?
« on: April 04, 2005, 03:04:41 PM »
I'll be relocating to Boston this summer and going to New England.  I have yet to go to Boston but it seems like a great city and am anxious to get there.  My partner got offered a kick a** promotion there around the same time that I got accepted to the school so it just seemed like the place to go.

Anyone going to New England feel free to PM me or IM me on AOL as I yet know no one in Boston!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Law School Prep Course--worth it??

So I guess the bottom line is to use the commercial outlines as a guide when making your own outlines for class...am I right?

At most of the schools that I have visited, they keep copies of the outlines from some of the students who scored a "B" or better on previous exams - they allow you to copy and use.

I would be more inclined to use the outline from someone who had taken the class and done well than I would be to use a commercial outline. Professors have individual styles and approaches to instruction that is cannot be generalized in commercial outlines.

Thanks for the input ridenrj...are these student outlines in the library for the most part?  Do you know if professors suggest sutdent or commercial outlines or do they not suggest this at all?

Thanks for the advice.
Maybe a dumb question now but where can I get commercial outlines?  I see this mentioned quite a bit.  Any recommendations for this?

Incoming 1Ls / Law School Prep Course--worth it??
« on: March 31, 2005, 07:14:07 AM »
I knew it was coming.  I got a brochure in the mail yesterday for a five day law school prep course costing a little over $1000.
I was hoping to get some thought from people on this; is this at all worth it or is this just a chance for some company to shake out thousands of dollars from nervous impressionable pre-law students?
I've read a few books so far...am I prepared or should I start pawning my belongings and take the course?  I'm sure I feel like a lot of people here: the fee is quite daunting and with an upcoming move and school it'll be a major stress on my finances to take this course. 
I'm just very torn, I want to do well and if I were to know it is worth the money I would do it but I don't want to slam down all this cash if it's going to be a waste of time.
Please help!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: new england school of law

I've been accepted also. I went to the accepted students reception. I liked it, still waiting to hear from Suffolk though.

Would you mind telling me what you liked about it being there in person?  I have accepted but won't be able to get up to any of the open houses.

Thanks for help everyone.  I feel much better about moving.
Now, if I can just get over the fact of paying $1000+ for rent I'll be set.   ;D
(Live in a huge 2 bedroom now and pay $550)!

Thank you all for your great advice.  I will keep it all in mind when I start looking for places.   
One more question...I notice that once you get outside of the "T" lines that there appear to be a lot of commuter train lines that go further out from the city.  Can anyone tell me what these are like?  I'm assuming that I probably wouldn't want to live that far out or past the "T" lines...am I right?

Not sure if PM worked...I'm still getting this whole thing down.
Thanks for advice though.
How is the public transportation outside of the "T" lines.  Or, since the school is in center city would you recomend not living too far out?
