i've been productive for last hour or so, but the combination of exhaustion and the clippers/thunder game has brought any productivity to a halt.

DF: can anyone access JTIP's outline bank?


No, but here they are. http://www.putlocker.com/file/7059FA2C66579EDF

Let me know if that doesn't work.


you are my hero

Also, you are at Northwestern right? Anything in your bank from Rosenzweig(visiting prof at NW last year) and/or any and all outlines for international tax?


Nope, our bank is really terrible, but it randomly had anti-trust. Other than it, it's mostly IP related classes.

He kept quoting some douchey Contracts Professor during his first semester. After the Professor gave him a C he was a lot less gung-ho about law school and especially this Profesor. The sad fact is that he was a nice naive guy excited about his law school and then the cold hard reality of grades hit him. He paid full price too to a not top 14 school. Bad idea.


yeah i dont think anything that "traumatic" happened to most of us, pretty sure we just dont give a shit because we aren't 1Ls anymore.

i do feel a little guilty at times, though. like when i spend 3 hours catching up on the office instead of studying for my antitrust exam... or my other 4 exams....

School is offering Pass/Fail option for one class of your choice. I got one class where prof openly doesn't like me and may hurt my honors chances. Not 100% sure what my grade is, but non-blind grading and I could be anywhere from a B+ to a C. Worth it to just designate it as a Pass/Fail?

Partnership Tax- wtf was I thinking when I registered for this?

If Subchapter K had a box for "voluntarily get drop kicked in the nuts in exchange for a B", I'd check the shit outta that sucker.

I'm easily entertained. I know most of the raves are for the GW one, but I had the CLS one stuck in my head for most of the rest of the day :lol:.

I liked the BU one and the Wisconsion one. Gotta reflect that bimodal salary distribution curve.

Also there were some KEUT BU honies.

I don't get the love for the CLS one. I guess I just hate law puns.

The CLS one was OK except for the fact that they used a Savage Garden song. The GW one was good but I had never seen the Lonely Island video so I didn't get it the first time I watched it. I liked the BU one the best, mostly for the blowjob line.

See, I thought the CLS one was funny because of the awful, cheesy Savage Garden song.

The UW-Madison one had a good premise. But pretty terrible execution. It was too long.

Yep. Should have been formatted like the lulzy minute-and-thirty-second commercials featuring a happy former construction worker turned IT drone. Would have been far better served to have cut half of the main guy's content and kept only one shot of the wife's disappointment, the one with the dog backing away, and a few where the kids mock their dad. Order was strange too, they kept mixing bits where he was happy with ones of utter despair. Should have built from him being all chipper up to the "I should have gone to ITT Tech"

i almost feel part of it was already made, or the idea for it was already in place, before they decided to put in the law revue contest. that would explain why there wasn't really a big build up to this funny but still depressing moment or anything. it was all just sad and depressing, the whole way through. i liked it, it was kind of like a trailer for a documentary about how horrible law school is.

that said, definitely voted for the GW one.

The short SMU video with the pick-up truck is hilarious. It's in the honorable mentions, but I think it's the funniest by far.

All self-scheduled exams this semester, however it turns out one of them requires you to pick up a paper copy of the exam from the exam center. Planned on taking the exam today, but exam center was closed. Can't really take another exam because I have been studying for the only one I can't take today for the past 3 days.

Solution? Walk to Nordstrom Rack on Michigan Ave. and buy a new belt.

That's a pretty shitty rule.

I guess you start studying for the next one? So you don't screw up your finals timing!? BLows.

LOL I bought a new belt at Nordstrom Rack on Thursday. There must be subliminal advertising out somewhere.

Hmm, possibly. My old belt's buckle snapped off the other day, so that may have had something to do with it, as well. Need to lay off the McDonalds...

Yeah, I had a few weeks left to outline for another class, so I'm doing that now. Kind of interrupting my "study groove" for the other class, but so be it. Antitrust can't be that hard anyway; allocative efficiency, rule of reason, etc.

I had battered chicken wings, fries, and beer for lunch. This was not a productive afternoon.
