General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Law Students on Spring Break???
« on: September 14, 2005, 09:16:30 PM »
I know it's a while away, but we started searching for deals. My friends & girlfriend (all undergrads) want us to go away on spring break. They happen to have the same spring break as me. What I was wondering is, do law students generally have the time to go away on break or do professors load you up with work to do during your week off? I'm just concerned about making plans to drink excessively & have fun, only to find out that I have 300 pages of cases to read that week.

Normally Appellate Briefs are worked on over spring break.  Check with your lawyering skills department to find out when it is assigned and due.

I'll have to appeal that assignment.

Interesting.  I suggest a blog or a diary as a better place for these thoughts.

I wouldn't have said it that way, but seriously... why DO we care what you think?  Don't you have some friends IRL that you can share this with?

Would you recommend using your (PLS-type) knowledge to try to pick up chicks (in your section or in other sections)? There's this really hot girl in my section that I met yesterday and I started telling her some PLS-type stuff and she seemed really interested (in the strategies, at least). I was thinking about playing that card, but I also don't want to jeopardize my class rank over it. I mean, she could potentially tell her friends (depending on how many she has). It could be worth it though...

"Hey, why do you come by apartment and check out my E&E's???" haha

Who knows, maybe we'll end up being "study partners"?

I have a question. So, I'm trying not to tell other people in my law school about PLSII because I don't want to make the competition any tougher, but is it OK to tell people that aren't in your section. I realize that telling people in your section would be dumb -- you don't want your whole section doing LEEWS, etc. But does it really matter if people in other sections know? I mean, you're not directly competing with them. The only thing I can think of is that those who you tell may end up doing very well and competing with you for straight A's at the top of the class (assuming PLS is very effective, among other things), while if you hadn't told that person, they may have got a mixed bag of grades. In other words, say you don't tell anyone in the other section -- most people may end up getting a mixed bag of grades and not competiting with you for top 10%. But telling someone could result in them getting straight A's instead of everyone getting a mixed bag. Does this make sense to anyone?

You are competing with all first years for percentile rank.  Ive found so far that people are not receptive to anything that sort of rocks their boat and makes them feel like they dont know everything or arent being show everything they need to know.  Hence my advice below about keeping things to yourself.

BAFF, come on man.  I'll lay this out for you as clearly as possible

A) If you have to use PLSII as a tag line to pick up chicks, you need some serious help in this department.  No one is going to think that this is even remotely cool or attractive. 

B) Are you even the least bit saavy about law school socializing?  I mean you've been on this board for over a year and you still dont know the first rule of LS relationships.  NEVER DATE ANYONE IN YOUR SECTION!  I don't know any better way you could invite a hellish personal rumor mill to grind you up into little pieces than to date a fellow section mate.

C) Finally, if you really think that PLSII is some kind of Rosetta Stone for law school success you are completely wrong.  I dont know how many times it can be stated before you understand: it's about YOU not a book you read before law school.  Atticus Falcon can't take your tests for you.  So why don't you drop this presumptuous crap about jeopardizing your class ranking.  What if you use PLSII all semester and end up in the bottom half of the class?  You won't be jeopardizing anything in that case. 

Basically, stop posting stuff that makes you sound clueless.  That is all.

I will probably have a very broad, adaptable outline completed for each class by the time we start.  This way I won't forget the things I've learned for each class.  It won't be hard to modify such an outline in class as the professor speaks...and I'll already be familiar with many of the elements presented.

God you are a total feminine hygiene product.  If you are anywhere this neurotic and egocentric in person, your classmates will hate you.

That is totally useless.  Who the hell wants to read that much for orienation?  I understand where you're coming from.  90 pages is fine for something that actually matters (like an actual class) but is not fine for something like orientation that is pretty stupid and pointless to begin with.  The 2nd post in this thread is absurd. Is that you in your avatar?  Your intelligence is apparently less than whoever that is.
