Chapman / Re: Any Soon to be Chapman 1Ls on this board?
« on: July 24, 2006, 03:22:30 PM »
Although I am not going to Chapman this fall and it seems a bit off-topic to the OP, I just spent a week long seminar through the Institute of Humane Studies.  One of the professors is Tom Bell, a professor at Chapman.  I know he teaches Contracts, so for those of you that might have him on your schedule you'll really enjoy him.  Whatever was posted on ratemyprofessors.com is probably very accurate.  If not, I know he's an IP person so he's also a guy to make contact with there.  Furthermore, def. a SoCal kind of person.  So yeah, just a preview of what to expect from one prof.  :)

Thanks for the info Bob. I will be sure to check him out.

Transferring / Re: Pepperdine transfer v. another so.cal school
« on: July 24, 2006, 03:21:24 PM »
So I finally have been accepted to Pepperdine as a 2L.  What to do?  While the School I go to is lower ranked, and less known, I love it here.  I did very well academically and this upcoming year have been offered to be the TA for two classes, invited onto Law Review and the other Journal and most importantly, I know all of the students who are great friends!

So I wonder, is giving up all of this worth it for a transfer to the gorgeous school of Pepperdine?  I would have to start over - friends, no law review, have to work to figure out the profs etc. can't put TA on my resumes....

I think I know what i'm going to do - just wanted to throw the question out there!



Can I ask which school you transferred from? If you don't feel comfortable posting it here, would you mind PM'ing it to me? I think I'd have better advice for you if I knew exactly which other so cal law school you were coming from.

U of Texas - Austin / Re: Anyone thinking about LEEWS?

i bought the CD's and listened to them and practiced during the summer before my 1L. I used the system for all my in-class finals during 1L. I did very well and finished in top 10%. I think the seminar is probably unnecessary though.

Did you listen to the CDs & practice again before finals or was it enough to do the work before 1L?

General Board / Re: BEST BAG/BACKPACK FOR LAW STUDENTS

Don't get a roller, only the gunners and weirdo's use rollers.

What bags do you recommend? I don't want to the roller ones but I'm not sure what the other options are...

General Board / Re: Whittier Law School?
« on: July 17, 2006, 06:16:08 PM »
It's probably the second best school in OC, Chapman being the best. Lots of Whittier students end up working in the public sector (public defender, district attorney).

General Board / When should one start LEEWS?
« on: July 17, 2006, 02:08:49 PM »
For those of you that have gone through it - what's the best way/time to use the program?  Should I go through it now, before school starts?  Or should I wait a bit into the semester?

Anyone going to be a 1L at Chapman this fall? Do any of you Chapman 2Ls or 3Ls have any advice for us?  :)

I have both the large hard copy one (gift from co-workers) and the small pocket sized one. I figure I can carry the pocket sized one with me at school/lbrary & I can use the large one at home.

General Board / Re: Law school vs. 9 to 5 job...give your opinion
« on: July 11, 2006, 02:48:01 PM »
Anyone else have any imput on this? I will be leaving my 8-5 job this week and starting law school in August. For those of you who left your jobs to go to law school, how did law school compare to your job (in terms of amount of stress, work etc)?
