Postby scrowell » Mon Dec 01, 2014 7:54 pm

Hey 1Ls, it's past thanksgiving. Time to start thinking about FINAL EXAMS!!!! :!: :!: :!:

Don't stress too much. You've been doing the readings! You'll do great!!!!!!!!!!!! I predict at least top 50% for 1/2 of you!

I know these can be stressful and confusing times...I'm a recent (fairly successful :wink: ) LS grad! WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, SUBSTANTIVE OR OTHERWISE!

I'm having major trouble with the rule against perpetuities. Can you provide an explanation of the rule in addition to an example or two? Really lost here, thanks a lot.

Practical advice: ignore it! I didn't know it at all and I got a B+ in property and passed the bar 1st try!

Just get all the other stuff down: mortgages, property interests, easements, LL/T and you'll do well.

Also good to know: ducking up a will/trust because of RAP will NOT be grounds for a malpractice claim. If it's an essay question you could mention that and maybe get a point or two. :wink:

I heard somewhere he passed the bar on his first try.
I'm not sure but it's a rumor I heard. You should trust him.

Please please do not listen to this advice. Do not ignore the rule of perpetuities. Try to get a good outline that describes the rule...don't spend forever trying to learn it, but at least be able to get some points in an exam should the rule come up. Getting a "B+" and "passing the bar 1st try" should not be your aspirations.

But seriously.

This guy is shitting up the on-topics almost as badly as, say, a Greg James, a PepperJack, or a should-i-do-it.

No, he hasn't started threads praising the holocaust (yet), but where is the line?

Dude, I'm deadly serious. I've been there and done everything related to LS (finals, finding jobs, MPRE, bar, you name it). What's your beef?

Those were my goals.


Yes, and those are poor goals for most students.

For the vast majority of students in law school, those goals will not get students a job sufficient to pay off their debt. It is shocking that you are unable to understand that what worked for you is a minor miracle, and to give the advice you give to students as if what worked for you will work for them is not only statistically wrong, but flat out irresponsible of you. You should hate yourself for the advice you give on this board. I worry for your company if you apply the kind of awareness that you display on this board to your legal responsibilities.

I am a ray of hope my man. I hustled and got a good job. I feel sorry for people that are too afraid to stray from the status quo. I read TLS prior to LS. I knew myself and believed in myself. It worked out. Granted, I had to work nearly full time while going to school, but nonetheless, it worked out. Fear is the enemy.

I feel u. Civ pro (or civ bro, as I used to call it) can be a bitch. I can email you my bar outlines if you'd like em. They're pretty clear/straightforward. Hit me with a PM if you're interested.

Also, none of what you just said responds in any intelligent or comprehensible way to what I said before. Again, I worry for your company.
