Studying and Exam Taking / Re: I.A.N. Study Group

Hi Guys,

I survived my first day (actually night as I am a p/t student) of orientation. Not too bad, went over briefing, outlining, hierarchy of US court system and sources of law ancillary or otherwise...We had burrito bar dinner with our peer mentors as well

Tomorrow night is our mock class/socratic intro...techie stuff and handbook rules.....

Thursday is spouse/sig other day, as well as professionalism oath, bar panel,  and career panel....

I am liking it so far... There are a LOT of paralegals (many of whom have their paralegal cetificates and already know how to research etc... so everyone else is feeling the pressure.... esp in my research and writing section where 12 of the 20 students are paras)

Books cost almost $600 and that is not counting supplements.... yikes.

When do you all start?

Oh I forgot to mention my classes...

I have civ pro, contracts, torts and research and writing this semester.... each class once a week on its own night.......

what are your schedules like?

Hey all!

I have been reading the e and e series(ive read contracts and civ pro and am working through torts) to prep... I just got my orientation packet(august 9-11th) and the homework for it doesnt seem to bad.. much like yanky... understanding how court system works, terms, and learning to brief cases...(we have 2 paperback books and 1 pamphlet of cases).... If I finish the torts  e and e this week, I will have one week to read the new Harry Potter before I need to begin the hw for orientation;) One nice thing is GG offers a spouse.partner/s.o/ panel to prep them for the law school experience.... and then they   watch us give our professionalism oath:)  Kind of a nice evening followed by a reception... I rhought that was a nice touch.

So is everyone excited... or what??

I can't wait!

General Board / Re: Denied loans...what to do?
« on: July 06, 2005, 04:07:01 PM »
Since your and your cosigners credit score was just called up when you applied for loans... I would move on it....I think if they pull other cc scores for the same loan within 10-15 days it wont hurt your credit score, after that it starts subtracting points.

Also, you might try to find a diff co signer if at all possible as a back up and apply with them ASAP...


Good Luck!!!
