It sounds like they are not based on what I've read here, that is, that classes are used for professors to dissect/discuss/lecture about cases. I started taking my laptop w/me to class during senior year, but would always have the pen and paper ready and would end up not typing anything in class. I also can see how transcribing can be a problem late in the game, and I may just end up getting used to typing to begin with to save time; still curious; Thanks!
I took good notes in class; the problem is making sure you have the time and mental energy to keep transcribing them. I wouldn't feel like doing it because I'd already be so busy from reading and studying, writing notes, researching and writing for LRW... so I'd put it off. Big mistake.
I see. I think getting used to laptop note taking may make more sense then.
