lol, I can't stop saying "joint" for the life of me and my friend had me saying "young" in college, my peoples at home just look at me like wtf did you just say and then i have to bring it back with a "that piece" or "son/dun"...lol

and Sands the comment about New Yorkers thinking that going to Jersey is taking a trip is sooooo true!

Yeah cats from Manhattan are the worst. They think Brooklyn is a whole other state.  Remember in sex & the city when Miranda and Steve decided to move to BK?  The rest of them were like, Brooklyn?  Where the hell is Brooklyn?  Do we have to catch a plane to get there?

Its right accross the bridge, geniuses. Just like Jersey.

You watch "Sex and the City" too! I was so ashamed  :D

Hola 2L's to be,

What kind of software do you all use for note taking?  I've been using the trial version of Microsoft OneNote all summer and it's great but, I'm wondering if there's anything else I should check out before I spring for the full version. Suggestions?

Thanks.

Use what helps you stay organized best.  I tried a couple of the note-taking software products, including One Note and ended up going right back to MS Word.  After a while, I started just taking notes in outline form and modifying them slighly (taking out notes to self, other unnecessary garbage) to make my final outline.  But do what works for you!  You'll learn soon enough what does and what doesn't.

I started with Word but found that One Note was just a lot more convenient. I kept losing notes in Word because I'd forget to save and then I had to keep naming and re-naming documents.  I thought it was just a pain in the arse!  One Note is a LOT easier for me because it saves automatically and arranges your classes as tabs at the top and then you have "pages" within each tab.  So I could have a page that was all class notes and then a separate page for my briefs or outline or whatever.  I still wanted to test out some other products though...

Faith: School's pretty much all worked out, finally!  I'll PM you in a sec.

Good to see Lexington's smile this early in the day ;D  I agree OneNote is kinda cool I went on and sprung for the full version...I like how you can record right along with the text and how it organizes notes...It also allows you to search all of your notes for particular words i.e Mens Rea or some other foreign word...

I just use MS word. Most people in my class did, too. Do what works for you . . .if you like one note, then use it.  It will be much better if you do what is comfortable for you. Good luck Lexington, and I'm glad things have worked out for you as far as schools!  :)
