Hello again.I have some general LS questions, if you don't mind. What is the main difference between your study strategies and habits now as opposed to what they were in UG? How would you prepare differently for a typical law school exam as opposed to say, a history final in Tennessee? How much different are the exams and is there anything you can use as an indicator to gauge how successful you will be in LS down the road? Also, what can I do now to prepare for LS and get a step ahead? Thanks in advance... your responses have been extremely helpful!
Thanks a bunch... nice new avatar pic!
Hey, thanks a lot for all the replies...it is really interesting hearing your perspective on all of these topics. I thought of a couple more questions, though...How would you describe the 'food chain' of the job hunt in CA? What I mean is, where does an average Boalt student lie in the grand scheme of things when looking for a job compared to someone from Stanford, USC, UCLA, etc? You mentioned earlier that someone with mostly Ps would likely find themselves in a secondary market...what exactly do you mean by that? What types of jobs and which markets?Also, what about the Boalt kids who do really well with grades? Where are they getting jobs?Where do most people study? Do you see people on campus a lot or is Boalt more of a commuter school?Outside of SF, where else are Boalt kids getting (biglaw) jobs in CA? Is the pay comparable?Where do most Boalt kids live? Would you say most people keep it close to campus (northside, southside, etc) or do people actually get all the way out to Oakland, Emeryville, etc. to look for a place? What is the Boalt parking situation like? Do people get preference or is it just dog-eat-dog out on Piedmont and Bancroft?How much do you think extracurriculars such as mock trial or journals help with the job hunt? Alright, that's about it...Not sure if you can answer all of these or get to them anytime soon, but again thanks for lending your perspective...I'm sure I'm not the only one that appreciates it!
Thanks for the info, it's helpful.Did many people transfer to other schools after 1L? Is anybody unhappy with their choice?Do you happen to know how other national schools do in the SF market? Like NYU, UVA, Chicago, Harvard, etc.?
When you say SF...does that include the surrounding areas as well (i.e. Palo Alto, Santa Clara, San Jose, etc.)?
