Re: Good ways to save $$ in law school

You guys ever see students come into class hammered?

Most of our campuses have bars on the same block and people tend to "have lunch" there and come back toasted every now and then. On St.Patricks Day and the day after (remember cooley is open 7 days a week) they rig the coffee vending machines to give out free coffee. Don't get me wrong, free coffee is nice, but it gives a window into the mind a bit.

A big push is to go to the DE classes were the Prof talks to 5 campuses at once over a screen. The ones where the Prof isn't there the students try to hide in the corners were the camera on her end can't see them, and tend to get louder as the class goes on until it turns to what sounds like happy hour. Often the prof will have to turn off their mic to be able to concentrate, but being cooley and every other person wanting to be what they think is a gunner, they end up trying to interrupt her to ask stupid questions or interject a story or other BS, and jump up and down waiving arms to get attention (since mic had to be turned off)

So combine the fact that around half of the students have "special accommodation" needs on tests (ADHD, Bipolar,etc) and the lack of any real supervision, and easy access to booze.........................

Anyone else have to deal with that on their campuses?
