General Board / Re: How do you pay for law school
« on: May 01, 2005, 03:58:37 PM »
My school is cheaper and I'm financing it by borrowing about 50k over three years.  All federal loans.  I had savings from undergrad, summer jobs and a TINY job for next year during school.  There are scholarships available.

I wouldn't advise working during 1L.  Let her get through at least one semester and see how much she needs to study and how much more she thinks she could add to her life.

Oh, I don't know anyone who had, I just thought it would be more stupid than drug use.  And yes, I agree that drug use is like a really slow suicide.  Or sometimes fast, depending on the circumstances. 

Drugs are bad. I'd never do drugs.  (Does anyone remember "Penny" from when we were little...Saturday morning cartoons...she had a hamster?)

Nope.  I don't think you know me, I just wondered what happened.  Apparently I'm not liked here, though...since I have a -1 rating, whatever that means.  So I think I'm going to stop posting here now.

Joe, you said you thought you knew me but then haven't said any more about it.  Did you decide that you don't or what?

I thought that the first post in this thread was mean. Isn't that part of what the board is for?!?!

HOWEVER, I don't like it very much when I try to give helpful input in reponse to an admitted student's question and then they discount the information because it wasn't what they wanted to hear.

Do not buy everything marketed as a "must-have" for law school, people.  It's about what you do when you get there, not what you have in your backpack when you arrive.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Microsoft Note?

We are being as helpful as we can be.  If you already own it--if you got it free with your computer--then try it and see if it works. If you don't like it after a week or two of classes, you can stop using it. Then post here for some other soon-to-be 1L and tell them whether you like it or not. 

If you don't already have it, I already gave you my best advice.  Five years ago people at my school weren't even typing their notes...today, I don't know a single person who uses something other than regular word-processing programs on a computer.  I also know several people who still take notes by hand.  I tried my best to be helpful--I don't think that One Note is necessary--save your money.

Save money and use Word.

The issue isn't about what the easiest exam is...easy exams just lead to smaller spread between grades, which makes them more subjective.

Since you are just competing against other students, they are all the same...everyone will do better on an easier test.   

Some people have better experiences with certain parts/types of tests (essay, multiple choice, take home) or with certain professors, but that's pretty common in undergrad, too.
