Current Law Students / 1L - Time for sports???
« on: June 16, 2006, 05:23:41 PM »
I know everyone says 1L is hell and you are busy non-stop.. however, I was thinking of joining the rowing team which would require about 2 hours practice in early mornings.... would this interfere with 1L?

Current Law Students / Clerkship question
« on: June 01, 2006, 05:16:23 PM »
I understand that clerkships are supposed to significantly boost your career in the long run... however, is there a point where a clerkship is not "prestigious" enough to justify doing? I know everyone wants the SCOTUS or Federal level clerkships... but what about state, or even local level?

Is the moment you have finished your first set of law school finals. Or sex. But probably the first one. :)

Incoming 1Ls / So- anyone know their section/classes yet?>

I'm getting pretty frustrated... not only does Vanderbilt not tell you your section until orientation, they don't even have the 1L class grids up so I can see what the schedules look like.

Are all schools like this?

Incoming 1Ls / Clothing Poll

Just curious what the concensus is... if there is one.

Choosing the Right Law School / UVA status change
« on: July 21, 2006, 07:03:35 PM »
Currently WL... status changed today and of course the stupid thing doesn't tell me what the new status is, so I have to wait on a letter that won't get here until next week.

So my question...what is the likelihood that it is good news? I only know of one other person who's status changed today...

Incoming 1Ls / 1L classes - Same order or mixed?
« on: July 11, 2006, 08:53:42 PM »
I am trying to figure this out... are the 1L classes in the same order for different sections (i.e. semester 1 you have Contracts [A] and ) or do some schools mix up the classes per section per semester?

In this thread, we each leave a token of wisdom for the next cycle of applicants.

My wisdom:

It takes infinitely longer to apply, hear back, and eventually decide where you are going... than you could ever dream.

Incoming 1Ls / Best Laptop Backpack???
« on: June 22, 2006, 10:33:56 PM »
Not sure what to buy. Want something good for the computer, also good on my back... not really sure how many books there will be.

I was kinda looking at the Merrell Rapid Pack II, but it's a bit pricey (around $100 locally).

Any opinions on good backpacks?

Posted this on the grad board, thought I'd seek some pre-law subjecture...

Do you think it would be possible to join the rowing team, which would require 3 days/week workouts from 5:00 to 7:30am... Three regattas in the fall, with the last one being early Nov. Exams start early Dec. at the law school. Each regatta requires leaving Fri. night and returning Sat. night.

Is this at all a feasible plan or should I just give up and plan on maybe an hour/day at the gym?
