Ask someone who took that course with that prof. last year...and did well.

Watch it for fun if you want, but law school has been nothing like that, in my experience. And that's a good thing...

Log in and do random searches (my personal favorite case is located at 34 sw3d 343 b/c it's easy to type). 

Play the contests.  Take classes. Do tutorials.  Sometimes I learn a few things from them.  And free stuff is always cool. Really i wanted all my loans paid by lexis, but hopefully they will do it again next year and I can get it then. ;)

General Board / Re: Things you wish you would have known as a 1L

I wish I had known that most of the people on these message boards are full of crap and shouldn't be taken seriously!  Some people just get off on being mean to anonymous undergrads on these sites...I don't understand.  If they don't want to be sociable they should do something else with their time!

The pre-1Ls are freaked out, just like we were before we started law school.  It's a majorly life-altering experience.  I just wish that I had more people saying it would turn out for the best and fewer trying to make themselves look better by making the experience (and the people) seem worse than they actually are. 

1Ls---it'll all be okay, I promise!  :)

I hope you never have to share a secretary with another attorney, StrictlyLiable, because he/she will NEVER have time to get to your work!  Strange how busy the support staff becomes when you need something filed RIGHT NOW and you're a jerk about it!

Oh, I have some.

What about Ms. "Professional" who acts all put together and snobby at school, but makes out with every guy she sees at the bars before letting them take her home for the evening? Come on, honey...we know what your real professional interests are!

And then there's Mr. Controversy--furious about tuition hikes, tolerance issues on campus, and every class action lawsuit currently making its way through the legal system.  It's unpatriotic not to join the crusade, you know!?! Dude, just study for finals like everyone else and give the mass emails a rest!

I found that, even though other people still refer to him as "the lawyer," it really doesn't matter.  Sure there are all the advantages mentioned in the above post...but I could see myself dating a non-lawyer.

Oh wait...I mean I could have.  See, now I don't think of this particular guy as a lawyer so much as I think of him as the man of my dreams and my best friend.  I love being able to talk politics and law stuff, too, but I firmly believe that I fell in love with the person he is, not his legal education.

General Board / Re: Advice for New Law Students

I think this is excellent advice. I don't give everything I have to other people but I am open to sharing when someone has something to offer me, too. You don't have to become a bad person just cause you decided to go to law school!


"Also, figure out what kind of person you want to be in lawschool"

That is the lamest thing I have ever heard. I understand what you are saying, and it is so frigg'n pathetic that you would not only think that, but "say" it.

Seriously, after you get done watching Dr. Phil and finish whatever self-help book you are reading, come up for air and realize that ritual suicide is a very healthy option for yourself
