I would not expect Emory to go along with that unless literally every other school does.


Also, it seems like top 1/3 = "has a job in biglaw or midlaw or something similar" according to Captain.


Anyway, I'll ask the career services folks about this, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

There's a rumor going around that the larger schools were hit harder by the market retraction this year...

Started and perpetuated by you, troll.

Small schools gotta stick together, that's all I'm saying.  And if you check out the UT posts they had some 2Ls complaining that only top half were finding work through OCI.  I think we were about 60% according to Career Services, with 80% employed last I checked in w/ them a few weeks ago.  Any information we can put out is going to be positive, and if Emory's CSO folks get those numbers together it could be worth it to publicize the information.

Hah I was just talking today with a friend of mine about how glad we were that we were at a small school. This wasn't even a matter of jobs, though I did mention the "rumor".

So ... any advice on this legal methods exam?

Specifically how to approach the organization and stuff like that?



Oh, and how clear should we be when we make positivist/natural law/textualist(etc) arguments?

Do I want to come straight out and say, "A positivist would probably contend ..."?

If you have a professor that stressed making a checklist (as mind did), I would take that to heart. In other words, use as much of the packet as possible. I didn't do this and my grade was crap.

Weren't you in Bederman?

He stressed a checklist?

I only used half of the cases in the packet. My grade was pretty darned good.

So, legal methods...  Great exam, or the greatest exam?

Yeah I think it might be my best grade (which might speak badly about my other classes!), but it was without question the most miserable 32 hours of my life.  It took me at least 8 hours and three-times-through reading the cases before I was able to figure out what the hell was going on.  That reading was tough!


Is anyone else going to bar review tonight?


Also, on three occasions I thought for sure I figured out who you 2l/3l people were, and on each occasion I was totally wrong.  I tried to ask kind of inconspicuous questions, and I completely failed each time!  I apparently do not know you people.
