legalkitty, I think keeping to what I did in undergrad is good advice, thank you. I think I am going to do just that; handwriting notes in class and retyping with "extra" into my laptop after class. And, I always briefed my cases in my laptop, took the hard copy to class and wrote all over it, then make changes after class. That's what has worked in the past. A 2L at Widener warned me that she felt she screwed herself the first semester by trying to change.No, I don't think that the orientation exam will be that in depth... I mean how much can you really cover with a 45 minute exam? How do you know it's multiple choice? Oh,... and if you don't pass, you get a second chance. Remember... you are ahead of all of us because you passed TAP. It is the TAP people that I am worried about in class. I worked in one of the offices down in DE last summer and that was what each of the instructors told me... TAP people get the better grades. But, if you think about it, it makes sense; you have already completed a semester. All I keep telling myself is that I don't have anything to lose because it's free; if I try and fail then at least I tried, and when you try you never truly fail. Wish me luck!
outstanding yanky,let the games begin. I went to the campus todau and got my ID and my parking pass. next monday it begins for me.godd luck
Well, keep the Bob's coming... we were introduced to the socratic method today. Let me explain what happened...The instuctor walks in and she passes out a handout. Then she looks down at the roster and.... calls my name. Yes, it happened to me. Then she proceded to ask me questions for about 5 to 10 minutes about the case we were to prepare for today. I need congratulations and more Bob's, because I answered them without becoming flustered and answered to her liking because she wrote the stuff on the board for the others. (She did warn us that writing on the board for the benefit of all was just during orientation.) Then she moved on... to her next victim.I was told by a classmate that I did well, so, that's good. However, I think I may break my diet and get a pizza. StressHow's your orientation legalkitty?
legalkitty... wow! so at least half your TAP class made it; in DE I was told it was 5 out of around 80! But... that doesn't suprise me, us PA people are smarter ( those numbers were given to me by my friend who went through tap and may not be completely accurate ) Oh... our orientation exam is an essay; but, to put a positive spin on things, we will have faced a law school essay exam before out Torts mid-term! jen... yeah, I guess I could have come up with better name. Most of us had our choice of school by the time the process started rolling along, but we had such commeraderie that we wanted a study group. I guess it is more of a support group since none of us have the same profs. Thanks for the congrats, and have a Bob's while your here!
