General Board / Re: Does anyone use a digital voice recorder?

We have tried this for classes that people were going to miss, and it didn't work well.  Basically, class was an hour and a half that probably wasn't that interesting the first time.  Then when people went back to listen to it again, they realized that getting someone else's good notes was more productive.  Let's face it, professors don't share many secrets in class anyway.

My recommendation would be to save your money.

I feel like there are a lot of different types of people at my school.  I know I'm certainly not the sorority type.  Surely you aren't the only one who doesn't fit under the labels in your post...is it possible that there are people outside your section or even just outside your circles who aren't like this?

Since my law school isn't really like that, I hesitate to believe that that's the norm for all law schools across the country...

I'm not sure why you all think it's not possible to love a lawyer....do you see yourselves as unlovable?

Yeah, I go to school in the midwest. 

Noelle, I think I know you. Do you go to school in the midwest?

Yeah, yeah, yeah...make friends, see some movies, study hard, challenge yourself, learn a lot, and remember this time...it's unique and you'll never do anything else like it again!

General Board / Re: What is the black letter rules?

One doesn't really like or dislike black letter law...it is the law.  Basically, professors teach you legal theory...the common law and where the law came from.  Black letter is more like what is in your outlines.  Unless you are talking about the black letter law series of books, in which case they can be hit and miss.

I didn't mean to imply that you should only get what your professors tell you to use...that won't help.  I just think that it's useful to wait until you get into class because some of my profs have said that certain supplements are total crap but that one particular one is really good.  Law school costs enough without going out to get every supplement on the shelf just to find that your professor thinks the person who wrote it is stupid.

Your professors will probably recommend things...I wouldn't buy until then.  For example, my civ pro prof said to get the E&E, and reading it is just like attending class (only it made more sense).  Getting too many supplements, you won't have time to really use them so it just adds to the clutter.  Figure out which ones are best from prof advice and from other students who had that prof.

I would wait until august because then your warranty lasts for more of school.  I have the 3 year warranty on mine, which covers me until after the bar...

Be around other people--don't go it alone.  If you are getting frustrated/depressed, find another law student to hang with.  You can study together, encourage each other, set limits (study one more hour and then ICE CREAM, etc.).  Just keep things in perspective and NEVER turn to artificial crap like drugs or alcohol to help you cope.

Lots of depression and lots of addiction....pretty sad.
