To tell you the truth, the section name, "General board for soon-to-be-1Ls", threw me off. I thought it was for anybody who was thinking about LS. Maybe the name should be changed to "General board for accepted students" or something like that.

FWIW, people like myself (and most law students I know) don't visit this site precisely because it's too compartmentalized.  If I can come and talk about current events (or even just law jobs really), I'm much more likely to respond to a question by some student applying to law school.  As it is, most of the advice is going to be given to people by others in a similar position (otherwise, why would they bother frequenting the board), which is a terrible idea.  It's basically equivalent to the blind leading the blind.

I'm not saying you should be more like xo in the sense that xo has become a safe haven for racists and offensive behavior.  However, what xo did do right is create one centralized board with the option to view a particular subset of topics rather than creating several boards.  If you want law students to continue to come to the prelaw boards to help, then you need to make sure there's some sort of reason they'd be visiting the board.

But it's your board, and I'm only visiting to be nice to future law students.  I haven't been here in 2 years, and I probably won't be back for another 2.

Someone in the Student section has my username!

I don't want to choose another username.

EVeryone should check out The Scoop -- it's a new program to help incoming 1Ls do well in school.

I think every body should take information about the school where he is going to study.

Best Course Combination
« Reply #18 on: January 06, 2013, 10:35:08 PM »
Okay my 1st year courses at Tulane are as follows:

1st Semester
Contracts - 3 credits
Civil Procedure - 4 credits
Torts - 4 credits
Criminal Law - 3 credits
Legal Research and Writing - 4 credits (year long)

2nd Semester
Obligations I - 3 credits
Civil Law Property - 4 credits
Constitutional Law - 4 credits
Legal Research and Writing

My question is this: what is the best combination for class scheduling. 3 credit classes meet twice a week/4 credit classes meet three times a week.

Will I be able to schedule 3hr classes with 4hr classes?

Best practice? help?
