It must be hard for the OP to let her male friends know how smart she is when she is usually found with a mouth full of C0CK!

Some classes you will need nothing, maybe even all of your classes.  I picked up a few first semester just to make me feel better, second semester I grabbed one for myself and borrowed a friends for a few days.  Mostly they are just a security blanket, use whichever one feels most comfortable and is most similar to what the prof is going over.

Plus, both of these schools are insanely expensive, especially Quinn - if you have a chance to attend a state school that might be a better option - apply for in-state after 1L, etc.

Even if money is not an issue there may be better options, but that is hard to say since you didn't mention numbers, interests, area, etc.

General Board / Re: BOSTON COLLEGE LAW STUDENTS EXPLAIN 1L SCHEDULE
« on: May 12, 2006, 12:11:44 PM »
it's because at BC all 1L's take 42 credits thier first semester, then they only take 6-8 credits each subsequent semester - have fun with that.

As to Law Review, top 5 students = auto admit, anyone in top 1/3 may write on - to write on you must submit a 16 chapter book explaining why you went to law school and why you are so worried about a bunch of *&^% that is way off in the future for you - you haven't even started yet and you're filled with all these meaningless questions.  Just enjoy your frigging summer, go to orientation, and everything will fall into place.  Law review is something to worry about after at least one semesters grades have posted, and don't read any bull books about law school this summer - trust me it's not that hard to figure out once it all starts.

I would think someplace on the west coast (far away from me).

Friday morning: craming last couple rules into my brain for Civ Pro final
Friday at 5:00: sweet relief - last exam finished
Friday at 7:00: after 3 beers and some pool - time to attend end of year party
Friday at 11:00: a little hazy
Friday/Sat moring 2:00: arrive home - chicken salad sandwich, water, sleep
Saturday morning: slight headache, 1L year over - pleasantly surprised with first grade posting - an A in Crim Law - I guess that's good since I'll be doing crim work this summer.

yeah, I think the answer will depend on the school for the most part - check thier sites. 

Why do you want to transfer to a same tier LS, also I assume you are at IU because they had a PT program and your numbers were a little below what any similar schools in your area were willing to accept.  It seems like you might be better off staying at IU, unless you are top 10% after 1L (which is tough). Won't you be able to possibly start getting in-state tution at IU.  It just seems that if you can only transfer to a similar school (rep wise) it would just make sense to finish at the place you started (unless IU is miserable or something).

-just my two cents

I was also a transitional so I will jump in as well.  I think it was nice playing golf every week and having time for a social life, but it really does suck having to make up two classes.  The thing that really sucks is that you still take a writing class, so you really only have two normal law classes, then in spring you have five and still a writing class.  I would still choose Toledo if I had it to do over though, I like the school and the people here, and I don't think you could go wrong by picking Toledo.  I am choosing to make them up during the next fall or spring semesters.  I am making them up then so I can work with a criminal defense attorney all summer on a full time basis.  I will be working in Michigan about 2 1/2 hours away so there really is no way I can take classes at the same time.  For me the work experiance is more important than being caught up right away.  At Toledo you need 89 credits to graduate, if you take 9 the first semester and 16 the other 5 you will meet this number without taking any summer classes, a heavier load will suck though.  If I find this semester to be brutal or something I might decide to take the summer classes to lighten my load for the remainder, or I might choose to just plan on a 3 1/2 year stay and go an extra fall.  I do wonder how it would affect someone graduating in December, are there less jobs available?  Anyway, I agree that you should at least ask them, and even if they say no at first you may want to pressure them a little, we do have a good administration which is rare from what I've heard about other schools.

I do believe a tumble weed just rolled through in place of lawforever's response regarding his lack of grammatical eloquence and his misguided notions of a decent school.

Black car, I need to know - what schools did you give up and what one are you attending.
