Is LEEWS worth it? I am a 1L at a top 10 school and want to know if any other folks at top schools found LEEWS helpful. I'm having a hard time telling from other posters if a dislike of LEEWS stems from the school they go to, not applying it correctly (or not trying), or something else.Thanks.
No, sorry if I sounded like a prick there. I certainly don't think LEEWS is just for people at lower tiered schools. I wouldn't be considering paying $100+ for it if I thought that. People are rather vague when they say why LEEWS is a waste of time and money. Is it because they didn't really do the program? Is it because their school teaches differently? Is it because the things LEEWS teaches are obvious or impractical?
Okay --- I got my exams back. I got an "A-" in contracts and a "B-" in torts (because I misread the call of the question - there were three and one I misread. Had I not done that, I would have ended up with an "A-" also).I am going to stick to what I did for mid-terms for finals prep. The only thing is that finals also include multiple choice questions. I have the Q&A series and I also have access to CALI for that.I think that in addition to learning the structure of exam writing, you need to also work past exams from your individual professors. My torts and contracts professor wanted different structures and wanted different things in their exams (i.e. my contracts professor wanted case names in the exam). So write some practice exams and meet with your professors.Vera
You should be done with all your cases, outlining, etc. at least 3 weeks prior to study period prior to exams. Vera
