Hello,It is very nice of you to volunteer to answer questions for anxious incoming 1Ls.I am starting law school this year at Widener (Harrisburg). I am coming in from the TAP program, so I have a slight idea of what law school will be like, but I am having money concerns. I drained every financial resource I had just to make it through the TAP program, and I made it, but now I am really worried about getting my loan money in time to buy books for this semester. I do not want to fall behind on reading in the first week!! Do you have an idea of about when the school issues money for the term?
jrw,I'm attending Widener Delaware Campus and I was wondering what the best method for taking notes is if you're not using a laptop. In undergrad I used folders, looseleafs, and spirial notebooks depending on the class. But are the classes handout heavy, note-taking heavy, or what. I've spoken to many lawyers all of whom give me vague answers and I was just hoping an actual Widener student could give me some note taking pointers on Torts, Civ Pro, Property, and Legal Methods.Thanks in advance.
jrw,Another question is what are some of the cases we look at in Civ Pro, Torts, and Property?Thanks again.
