Current Law Students / GMU Students Prof. Somin
« on: November 25, 2008, 06:52:14 PM »
Hi everyone!!

I was just wondering if anyone had access to any outlines or old exams for Prof. Somin's property class.  He is visiting us this semester, and didn't bring any old exams with him.

Thanks so much for any help you can give!

Current Law Students / Be Careful How You Represent Yourself!
« on: November 25, 2008, 11:18:35 AM »
Ok, a little story for you all:

This past weekend, I and some classmates were volunteering at the Federalist Society convention in DC.  It was an awesome event, and a real highlight was a speech by Justice Scalia.

Well, during the whole time he was speaking, 2 other volunteers from SMU (we all had name tags with our school) were talking loudly, making rude jokes, and being disruptive (Judge O'Scannlian's son even made faces for them to stop).

So, at an event with some of the most influential conservative legal minds in the country, these two were representing themselves, and their school, as boorish.  Now, I am not holding their behavior to apply to every SMU student.  I'm not that dumb.

And on the flip side, a student from Cooley asked a really insightful question during a panel, and increased my respect for that institution.  He really carried himself with a lot of poise, and it made a difference in how he was received.

I'm just reminding people that, when you are someplace representing your school, you should make sure to behave in a way that will be favorable to you and your school.  This should be basic, but I figured, with 1L job search approaching, I would bring it up in hopes of making some people give it some thought.

Incoming 1Ls / Increasing Typing Skills
« on: March 12, 2008, 06:03:52 PM »
I am fast realizing that, while I can type with a fair degree of proficiency and speed, my typing may not be on par with what is needed to adequately take notes and exams in law school.

Does anyone know of a good program for Mac that would help my typing?  I searched on Google, but it is impossible to know which are any good or if it is really all that important in the first place.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / What to wear to ASW??

I am going to Penn preview tomorrow and was wondering if jeans/nice shirt was good enough or if I had to do slacks.

Any suggestions??

Ok, the choices are based on acceptances listed in her LSN.


Studying for the LSAT / Post-Test Festivities??

So...what are you all doing??

I am going to dinner with my fiancee and our friend.  A nice mojito and some salmon may cure this mood.  I DID have tickets to the Phillies game, but I cashed out on those once the playoff hunt got crazy.
