MUST SEE PRIOR TO 1L YEAR

Postby DuckEUG2010 » Wed Aug 01, 2012 1:41 pm

I am a rising 2L transfer student at GW Law (Waitlisted at GULC) and want to share the things I learned my 1L year that no one will tell you. I put these tips in a video, if you have any questions please feel free to email me; I would love to help in any way I can! Good Luck!

NO. Just... NO.

While the video is not bad (although I disagree with a lot of things you say, there are different ways to attack law school), I think it is a little presumptuous for someone who did well at a tier 4 school to charge $200 for a seminar on how to succeed in law school.

I appreciate your opinion. I am upfront and honest about that aspect and charge much less than most seminars.

I generally agree with most of your advice and think it follows typical TLS wisdom of the approach to 1L (which can basically be summarized by forgetting about prepping for class and focus on the test from day one). I disagree, however, with the "if you work hard enough you will succeed" mindset. This is a dangerous view to have going into 1L year and likely ends up producing many average to below average students at many average to below average schools, which is a terrible place to be ITE.

But great job for doing well and transferring and hopefully this will help some incoming students.

Has anyone signed up for the seminar? I'm trying imagine an alternate universe where I'd consider paying $10 for that drivel, let alone $200, but can't do it. A rising 2L from a TTTT is not in a credible position to sell "Secrets of Lawschool" or whatever you call it, but if people sign up good for you I guess. I'm imagining one of those super awkward and poorly attended seminars (like in the movie Little Miss Sunshine, if you've seen it). Maybe a bit harsh, but you are clearly posting for commercial benefit so deserve to be shamed.

TLS obviously shouldnt be this guys target audience. He needs to be targeting the lemmings that will be attending TTT/TTTTs

If you aren't interested, that's ok. This is what worked for me at a tier 4 school. I have not tried to hide the ball in any way shape or form. For all the students attending a tier 4 school, I feel this would be a benefit for you. I can't speak for someone going to HYS. But I respect your strained imagination and I apologize you have not found this alternate universe you are so desperately seeking.

You can certainly roll with the punches, kudos.
