Any ideas or opinions?

Nooo not me kids...  ::) just a question.  But still am curious if someone has successfully done it or not.

Ever heard of anyone doing this?  Can you start over at another law school if this happens?

Current Law Students / Exam Tips

Let's demystify the exam process a bit and help out the newbies with some of our own personal exam taking strategies.


IRAC doesn't always equal success and some professors actually HATE it because they want your answer in more of a narrative form.  Plus you infuse pretty much 0 creativity to set you apart.

Always separate your issues and parties before you even begin.  For example you have 5 parties doing all separate things... make sure you put A v B and B v C in nice neat little paragraphs and then start writing about the respective issues.

Time management time management time management.  Have all the BLL and rules set in your head before you sit for your exam.  That way when you recognize an issue it will trigger the information you need to include and you'll have it written down in no time.

I would have posted this under exam taking strategies but honestly no one reads that board.

Take Care~~ don't forget to add your input.

I know U of M takes a lot of transfer apps.  Anyone successfully transfer there?  Also please tell me your stats and LSAT score and what personal statements or essays you wrote.


Current Law Students / Private Loans for Law School?
« on: February 22, 2006, 07:27:59 PM »
Hey guys just wanted to get a general consensus if there was one, on what private loan has been the best and most hassle free loan company to deal with.  I'm pretty much like everyone else here.  Will most likely need to have a creditworthy co-signer since I'm not apart of the working world yet. 

I ultimately would just like one 50k loan that would last over a 2 year stretched out period of time.  I don't know if anyone has gotten this amount or from whom I guess it is kinda on the high side.  Having said that...

Any suggestions?

What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to future law students regarding the law school experience?

Hey Pitt,

My words of wisdom would be do practice exams do practice exams and then do more practice exams.  Especially if they are from your current professor.  Everyone their first year makes the mistake of freaking out because they're not prepared for class, or because they didn't understand some minute detail in one of their cases, or their professor has them totally confused and agitated.  Keep your focus on what COUNTS... and its the final exam at the end of the semester. 

I'm totally convinced that profs try their damnest to get law students hung up on the cases and the present taking their minds off of the future and what really matters... the exam.  Don't get caught up in the anxiety inducing tactics of your professor or your fellow students who don't know where their focus should be.

Outlining is not a MUST and doesn't guarantee success... and it's a big time waster for a lot of successful law students... choose the method that works for you. 

Learn the black letter law, and practice those exams, period.
