Chemerinskygod is your friend.

Yea but it's too long to read by myself. I need an e-club to tell me which pages to read and when


I look up assigned cases in the index. I won't be reading it from cover to cover either, because my prof's class isn't that comprehensive.

When I came to pick up a sealed recommendation for a fellowship app from my Ks professor, he remarked that I am an outstanding student and had the 4th highest score in my section. He also said that if BC gave out A+'s he would have given me one--damn BC for not giving A+'s, lol! Still stoked about the A in that class, tho.

I get that you are a good student and are proud of yourself but your comments are getting a little braggy.

Aww, congrats Bronck! Hope the lucky lad/lady won't present too much of a distraction from CSWS/GRINDing. :wink:


Hah! I thought it went solid, despite some probably noob mistakes, but who knows. I guess I'll find out whether it's going anywhere soon enough . . .

Seeing my hometown crush over break. He totally understands the CSWS lifestyle, so he's all right with it being just a couple hours on one day. Hope it transforms into something real this summer. :wink:

Don't profs at Columbia hire 1Ls as paid RAs? Folks here have done that, and it hasn't presented a problem for them (as far as I know) at OCI.

Also, have u hit up PSJD and Idealist? It's (probably) too late for large firms and federal judges, but not at all for direct legal services stuff. Some gov gigs listed on the U of Arizona Honors Handbook have March/April deadlines. http://www.law.arizona.edu/career/honorshandbook.cfm
Hang in there!

Good suggestions! I've bookmarked PSJD but haven't had a chance to look at it much yet, it seems like a great resource.

Yeah, dated basically the entire semester. It was a very confortable situation, but I think we moved too fast. By finals we were together almost 24/7 either studying or trying to get our minds off studying.

But yeah, it sucks now. At least I still have law.

In 1829, Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story stated: "The law is a jealous mistress and requires a long and constant courtship. It is not to be won by trifling favors, but by lavish homage."
