Just checking in as usual. If some of you are the same cats that were applying from the 2005 cycle (2Ls now), hello! So, tonight I just found out that I've been named the next Chief Notes & Comments Editor of my law journal! I'm super excited to earn a top 6 position and hopefully (aside from the fact that I like my journal) put me in a better position for a federal clerkship.  :) Hope you all are doing well.

PS Anyone heard from Mobell or BlkReign lately?
congrats Scurvy--keep up the good work

Thanks! I'm doing well. How about you? Now that you've made it through, what are you plans? BTW thanks for your encouragement early on!

Speaking of money, I got the raise, too. My firm was one of the within 24 hours piggy-backers. The best part is that they're going to pay the summers accordingly!

cui bono?

Question for ya'll-  I know it "depends on the person" but on average, how many pages are your outlines?

My property outline is looking kinda thick!

i personally think that civ pro does not suck. k sucks because the basic application of it sucks. at the 1L level, it's difficult to disconcern what we're really talking about. it's to abscure and obscene! you could replace the words for numbers and it make more sense. should it be left at its most basic level so that the only people who really get it are rich white folks?

honestly, i think someone needs to write a killer k book that carefully maps the theortical to the application and us black folk will get it.
