I have a question. So, I'm trying not to tell other people in my law school about PLSII because I don't want to make the competition any tougher, but is it OK to tell people that aren't in your section. I realize that telling people in your section would be dumb -- you don't want your whole section doing LEEWS, etc. But does it really matter if people in other sections know? I mean, you're not directly competing with them. The only thing I can think of is that those who you tell may end up doing very well and competing with you for straight A's at the top of the class (assuming PLS is very effective, among other things), while if you hadn't told that person, they may have got a mixed bag of grades. In other words, say you don't tell anyone in the other section -- most people may end up getting a mixed bag of grades and not competiting with you for top 10%. But telling someone could result in them getting straight A's instead of everyone getting a mixed bag. Does this make sense to anyone?

I would just like to point out that this is by far the most ridiculous post I have ever read on any message board ever. That is all.

yeah, I think I will try to find a PLSII study partner at my school by posting a flyer.  I will use the acronym PLSII so people who are in the know will respond and those that are not wont even know what I'm talking about.

any better ideas to encode the flyer?

"encode the flyer?" AHAHAHA, you guys are f-ing hysterical! This is the funniest *&^% ever- please continue.

Would you recommend using your (PLS-type) knowledge to try to pick up chicks (in your section or in other sections)? There's this really hot girl in my section that I met yesterday and I started telling her some PLS-type stuff and she seemed really interested (in the strategies, at least). I was thinking about playing that card, but I also don't want to jeopardize my class rank over it. I mean, she could potentially tell her friends (depending on how many she has). It could be worth it though...

"Hey, why do you come by apartment and check out my E&E's???" haha

Who knows, maybe we'll end up being "study partners"?

You are competing with all first years for percentile rank.  Ive found so far that people are not receptive to anything that sort of rocks their boat and makes them feel like they dont know everything or arent being show everything they need to know.  Hence my advice below about keeping things to yourself.

BAFF, come on man.  I'll lay this out for you as clearly as possible

A) If you have to use PLSII as a tag line to pick up chicks, you need some serious help in this department.  No one is going to think that this is even remotely cool or attractive. 

B) Are you even the least bit saavy about law school socializing?  I mean you've been on this board for over a year and you still dont know the first rule of LS relationships.  NEVER DATE ANYONE IN YOUR SECTION!  I don't know any better way you could invite a hellish personal rumor mill to grind you up into little pieces than to date a fellow section mate.

C) Finally, if you really think that PLSII is some kind of Rosetta Stone for law school success you are completely wrong.  I dont know how many times it can be stated before you understand: it's about YOU not a book you read before law school.  Atticus Falcon can't take your tests for you.  So why don't you drop this presumptuous crap about jeopardizing your class ranking.  What if you use PLSII all semester and end up in the bottom half of the class?  You won't be jeopardizing anything in that case. 

Basically, stop posting stuff that makes you sound clueless.  That is all.

174, and whoever else: I said "assuming PLS is very effective, among other things." But thanks for the commentary anyway. Perhaps PLS is not the "magical secret" to law school success.

And a lot of people (esp on this thread) seem to think highly of PLSII and its approach. I was skeptical at first, and it took a long time for me to realize that AF's recommendations are pretty useful. Actually, I still don't really know. I haven't got any grades back, and even then, I still won't know (too many other factors). However, I think his recs make sense, as do many others.

I know rumors spread like wild fire in law school (at least, that's what I've heard), but why can't you date anyone in your section?
