Current Law Students / Re: Marquette Prof. Offers Alternative Rankings

Finally, I have evidence of the vast anti-Cooley conspiracy!

A few days ago, I had a reputation of 10 on

I proceeded to make two posts. One was about the students protesting to BigLaw (my response? get off my lawn!)

The other response was to inform everyone of the vast anti-Cooley conspiracy, to drop the veil of ignorance that has been dropped on your eyes by USNews and the new Marquette rankings, and to show the world the glory that is Cooley!

A few days later? The vast anti-Cooley conspiracy has dropped my rep to -4

The truth hurts. Harvard Law may have cool sweatshirts, but Cooley has Library Square Footage, baby! Size matters!

I confess... I have started a grass roots campaign to destroy your reputation score!!!! 

- however, so far no one has joined my campaign and I am too lazy to defame you.

I did work last semester only part time but not currently.

I checked for the credits as well and all of the school I am applying to give a maximum amount of credits they will allow, but no minimum.I checked with the admissions offices and my credits are enough for all of them. They all have FT and PT programs too, so I am just applying to whichever program they will allow for me.

Yeah, if you don't work AND are part time... that's almost like cheating.  Focusing entirely on 3 classes with nothing else to do.  I would think an adcomm would expect a 4.0 out of you.

There was recently a write-on competition advertised at our school for the International Law Journal.  You can pick up the packet tommorrow and it is due on the 21st of April.  The main journal write-on does not even start until our semester ends.  Should I try to write-on to this journal?  I do not want to bank on getting on the main journal; but I also do not want to do two journals.  Has anyone done 2 journals here?  Thanks.

2 Journals... do you have any idea how depressing your life would be??  Cite-checking for 2 journals and 2 writing requirements.  If you want to get more involved, do moot court along with the journal.

As far as I know, they will say I'm in the top 25%.  :-[

If my grades stay the same do I have a chance at mid T2's? I am looking to go back to the northeast, Rutgers, Temple, Villanova for example.

Do you work?

Brief is due Tuesday, 2 weeks of classes left until finals- no reading days between end of class and start of finals. Literally, we have class Friday and our first exam Monday.

Skip classes the last week and prep for finals

Ok, so I handed in my legal writing assignment today, but after coming back from class I was reading it over on my computer again and I noticed CUNTLICKER in between two other words.  Apparently my housemate came back really drunk in the morning and changed it, but he doesn't remember.  I had finished proofreading it and didn't even look it over in the morning before I printed it out.  I am really freaking out and I have never been more furious in my life.  Should I contact the professor?  Will she even let me hand in another copy.  Please help!!

So unfortunately my hard drive somehow got wet the other day and all of my notes, etc. are gone.  I know I should have backed them all up and have now learned my lesson.  My question for you all is whether you think it is worth to email my professors and/or TA's explaining what happened and attempting to get some of their class notes.  Thanks for your advice.

As a TA, if you were to ask me, I would tell you that it is never too late to drop out of law school.  This is obviously a sign from the gods.

It is my understanding that LSAC requires you to sign a form indicating that you give up the right to view the rec letters.  It seems that this practice indicates that the rec letters, even if sent directly to the school, are supposed to be entirely independent from you so that the person gives an honest opinion of your quality.

How hard can it be to get someone to take the time to write a letter for you anyways?

About a week ago, a kid in my Torts class got taken to task for dropping that little bomb.  Our prof told us a story about how he was called on virtually every day by his Contracts prof in law school (30-40 years ago).  One day he honestly had no idea about the answer to the question.  He answered "I don't know."  The prof moved on, and never called on him again.  This sounded great at first, but then my prof realized that "I don't know" meant you didn't have anything good to say and you had given up.  So his professor found a new teacher's pet.

Bottom line, even if your teacher hates "weaseling" (another on of my prof's pet phrases), it's always better to BS than give up.

Uh, you are wrong.  Being a "teacher's pet" only makes you hated by your classmates... and honestly most teachers' pets get the coveted C's on the exam.  You don't get graded for classroom participation.
