Trying to killself?

EDIT: I'd drop 2 of the two-credits.  They all look about the same, except Trial Practice.

The topics of the classes don't overlap that much. The women one is research for a prof that I'm super-excited to work with, so def keeping that one. Social org is super-appropriate for my academic interests (I think - will have to see what this dude is talking about the first day). Proving discrim is the class I want most in life but I don't officially have it yet. It's about the use of social science research in discrimination cases. I just emailed to beg in; I'm #2 on the waitlist so will see how that goes. Capital Punishment is with Steve Bright and I had to fill out some statement to show my interest, so I def. want to keep that one! Sooo excited about it!...

The classes most up in the air are Trial Practice and Crim, but they are also the most black-letterish :( I rrrreally want them to offer an Advanced Civ Pro class because that would be hot like fiyah. Civ Pro is the blackletter thing I like the most.

lol at intent. My fist is always raised in this environment. I took tax and property last spring trying to prove I had broad interests. What a mistake (esp. tax) - I don't give a goshdarnit about tax shelters! :D

Glad there's actually stuff you're excited about next semester.  As fo' me and my house...

Actually, Trial Practice should be fun.  Put my newly acquired Evidence knowledge to use.  Transnational law requires us  to present some group case study.  There are few things Alci loathes more than graded group work.  It's why I dropped out of the b-school in undergrad, and it's why I might be dropping this course...

But back to you.  Even though there might be a ton of stuff you like, I wouldn't over do it.  Come May, I don't want to hear you complaining about how many papers/finals you have to write! ;)

pikey

Group work is fun! /sarcasm  Plus you'll have to do lots of it in the 'real world', so you might as well start now.
