Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Leisure or Study
« on: November 27, 2004, 01:52:56 PM »
I find it interesting most people on here say they spent the holiday time studying.  Most from my school went home for Thanksgiving and the ones I've talked to said they weren't doing any studying, just relaxing.  I stayed here (home is too far away) and studied, hope it pays off!

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: How Many More Classes 1Ls?
« on: November 27, 2004, 01:51:42 PM »
We have administrative Monday, Thursday, Friday this Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday to make up for missing classes on Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after.  That means I have two Torts classes, one Contracts, one Civ Pro and one Property.  I think everything will be review except Civ Pro, where we had 60 pages to read before Tuesday.  Our teacher is determined to finish the syllabus, lucky us.  We also have one last LWR assignment due Tuesday, a client letter.

I've finished all my reading for the semester, 3 out of 4 outlines is completely done, I have checklists completed for each class, and I've already taken at least one practice exam for each class.  Just memorizing my outline and taking practice exams from here on out.  I have exams Dec. 7, 9, 14, 16.

Good luck to all!!

Alot of people used http://www.geocities.com/theessayqueen/Services.html last year.  She's a good friend of mine from undergrad, so of course I have nothing but good things to say about her.  She's currently helping me with my PS for transferring and I can't say enough good things.

I'm a 1L and we have classes everyday.  I'm in school in CA and lots of people commute at least an hour.  I don't, but I haven't heard anyone say they regret it.  Most of these people have gotten CDs outlining our courses and listen to them on the commute now that it's close to finals.  They just say it's helpful to do something productive on the drive.  We have bad traffic around here so they have to come to school early and study in the library before class and then they either jet out right after class to beat the traffic, or stay in the library until late.  My guess is the traffic isn't as bad in Baton Rouge, but I'm near Los Angeles.

Anyhow, I think it's possible.  Personally, I like being near school though.

Law School Applications / Re: Dogs (& pets) in LS
« on: November 24, 2004, 10:36:17 AM »
I'm a 1L and have a dachshund/rottweiler mix (odd mix, I know).  I had him for 3 years before law school and wasn't about to give him up.  It has been no problem at all and I'm so happy I have him with me.  There are some lonely times in law school and it's nice to have him at home waiting for me.

I generally leave for school around 8:30 and am back by 4:15, so it's just like when I worked.  My dog is really low maintenance, actually hates to be outside, and is well-adjusted to apartment life.  I do all of my studying at home because at school everyone is always coming up to talk to me in the library and I get nothing done.  I much prefer to work at home, that way I can snack and stuff while I study too (our library doesn't allow food or drinks).

I agree with others that a puppy would be tough during law school.  My dog is a shelter rescue.  I'm really glad I have him with me, as I'm 3000 miles from home and it's nice to see a friendly face when I come home.   So, I think it's totally possible to have a dog during 1L.

I try not to talk on here anymore.  Honestly, I don't have the time.  However, I do want to say that I am not the Essay Queen.  I'm not getting into a debate about it, I'm just saying I'm not her, period.

I am indeed a 1L at a 4th tier.  That does not make me some subpar version of a student.  I for one am just happy to be in law school.  I get excellent grades and I'm extremely happy with where I'm at.  I hope all of you feel the same way about your future law school experience.

Being a 1L I don't have time to be editing people's essays.  It's Fridy night and I'm sitting at home working on Contracts.  Trust me, if I had free time I'd be out with the rest of my friends celebrating someone's birthday tonight, not at home editing essays.  Wait until you're a 1L, then you'll understand I wouldn't have time to be doing this.  I barely even have time to check my email and this board anymore, and only do so to take a quick break from studying.  A year from now maybe you'll understand.

I'm trying not to be involved in this thread any longer, since it has obviously lost all usefulness.  However, I am NOT the Essay Queen.  I am a 1L, I barely have time to do my own work, I certainly don't have time to do anyone else's!

Well she goes to Whittier, a T4.  Not sure how to handle that. 

This is irrelevant to the thread, so I'll only address it once.

I am just ecstatic to be in law school at all, regardless of my school's ranking.  Maybe one day you'll have the opportunity to feel the same way.  I'm doing great and hope to be able to transfer, but just remember...fourth tier schools use the same books as first tier schools, and we're all learning the same laws.  If you truly want to be in law school and become an attorney, you won't care who gives you the opportunity to do so.

I most certainly did not edit that number.  It has said $1500 the whole time.

Perhaps if you concerned yourself with your own problems (and I know you have them, I've read some of your other posts), your time would be better spent.  I, for one, would much prefer to spend my time preparing to kick ass on my 1L finals in a few weeks, so I'm done discussing this with you.

You're the one who keeps going on and on about it.  I only answer in order to refute your annoying comments.  I spent about 5 minutes one night looking up what the law governing this in CA was, and that's what I came up with.  I'm not putting anymore time into it, because this isn't my issue.  You have no idea whether or not she's complying, and I don't think it's a concern of yours anyway. 

I'm sure everyone is tired of seeing us all argue about this.  I suggest you just say you disagree with the whole business and move on with your life and get off this thread.  Don't you have some studying you should be doing?  I sure as hell do.
