Current Law Students / Re: PLS comments from current students please :o)

planet law school (now on the second edition), but "atticus falcon."  it's a pre-law book about how to prepare for LS, suggests primers and LEEWS and a bunch of other stuff.

hi all,

i'm a pre-1L (starting fall 2005) and have been reading PLS II, though i haven't started doing any of the prep work suggested yet.  before i invest a lot of time and money into it, i was hoping to get feedback from the current students on this side of LSD, now that you all have grades back to tell you how well you did.

so, who followed PLS, and how did it go?  and would you mind also telling me where you go to school (or at least some sort of ranking if you're trying to be anonymous)?  i ask that because someone just told me that PLS works really well for tier 2 and below, but not as well for higher ranked schools that are more academic.  comments on any and all of these topics, and anything else you deem relevant, are highly appreciated!

thank you muchly,

The outlet malls a few towns away have a Gap.

true.  but i won't have a car.  online shopping it is!  :)

the hilton show *is* good, in a really trashy way.  but that's exactly what i like in my reality shows.

i forgot to mention to E about the laptop: if you have it shipped to CT, there's no sales tax.  so if you want it shipped to your home state, check the sales tax first.  you might be able to save ~$70.

my laptop came this morning!  :)

just saw this on xo:

What, in your opinion, is the biggest misconception people have about lawyers and why is it a misconception?
The biggest misconception about lawyers is that they are lazy and donít care about their clients. Unfortunately, for the most part, itís true, which is why Iíve dedicated myself to challenging these stereotypes when Iím in the courtroom, which you can see for yourself when you see me in action on the show.

the biggest misconception is X.  X is true.

uhh...  - this girl uses too many exclamation points in her last answer for me to take her seriously.  - check out his first answer.  and his law schoolS.

my expectations for this show are officially negative.

so...  is everyone going to watch "the law firm," NBC's (?) new reality show with "real-life cases"?

Hell no.

EDIT: OK, maybe one episode out of curiosity.

ha ha, nice convictions there.   :D  it looks like it could be interesting.  certainly no worse than some of the other crap i watch, like "i wanna be a hilton."

i saw a commercial the other day for a doogie-howser-meets-the-practice show.  anyone know the name?  i was too distracted by how awful it looked to actually remember the important stuff.  i think it was going to start in the fall, so i probably won't be watching.  i'll be too busy with apprentice, apprentice: martha stewart, and gilmore girls.  oh, and law school.
