Intelligence.

Is that how that works

Edit - so glad you came to take ?s!


Sorry my answer was so short I will elaborate. I never missed class unless I really had to. I read every case closely and made sure I understood them. Doing past exams helped a lot. I took good notes in class. I was never screwing around on the internet or zoning out. Also, I feel there is a certain analytical skill involved in taking a law exam and I believe I have it.

Cool thanks. Did you use supplements a lot, or just relied on the casebook and class notes?

Obvious. Even more obvious. Yet even more obvious. Good God will this advice get any more obvious? But I will give you a pass because that last sentence made me literally laugh out loud.

I'd like to work biglaw, but I just don't see that goal as feasible ITE. I'd be happy with midlaw though. My plans definitely changed since I transferred. Before I wanted to work PI. Cooley gave me a good scholly and I feel this made the risks of law school a bit minimized.

I did use supplements, but you should be careful with them. They can be a bit misleading at times. I liked the E and E's and emanuels isn't so bad for some courses.

Much better than my pointing out of this statement. It seems like there is a tug-o-war over whether or not this is a flame because people keep asking OP legitimate questions as if this was a legitimate thread.

I don't have any. Maybe you guys are having a hard time accepting the fact a kid that began his career at Cooley is doing better than most law students.

Why in the name of God, if you were already resigned to going to Cooley, would you go to Lansing Cooley over AA Cooley?

Detroit didn't really appeal to me. I would rather live in a college town.

I figured it would be a bad idea to post on here because I would have to deal with facetious comments.

If this is legit, congrats. The generic-ness of your posts makes this seem fake, but if you are sincere then you really did do great and good luck.
