Generally no curve. The grades come in too late to help for OCI, but it can be a nice boost if you're still looking after OCI is over.

They definitely don't help for OCI but they might help for clerkship applications (don't quote me on this). In any case, it's just cool to see that 8 units of A/A+ boost that you get from two classes that literally just required me to give a class presentation and write a wikipedia article disguised as a research paper.

Depends on the class and professor, just like any other class. There are practicums, intensive classes that only meet a few times but for most of the day, online classes, etc.

Cool beans. Thanks for the info. I'll probably ask about this again when choosing summer classes since I wanna get some credits out of the way for a true 3LOL experience

Would HIGHLY recommend this route. Thanks to summer classes + taking a slightly higher unit load during 2L, I can take less than 10 units next semester and still graduate (I asked admin + fin aid and you only need 4 units per semester to receive financial aid and there is no minimum progress standard at NU law).

The LLMs last year killed it w/ the McClurg deck drinking shenanigans and I hope they continue it this year. They always seemed like they were having the most fun.

I just want to say: 1) the listserv is an amazing place right now and 2) its ridiculous but Fedsoc was being intentionally inflammatory.

Man that made my day. So funny. I'm going to enjoy the ensuing butthurt on all sides. popcorn.gif.

Hold an event discussing an unpopular viewpoint with an arguably distasteful lunch selection and you're equated with the KKK. So glad we have such mature classmates.

Jesus Christ, don't these people have friends? Email your friends with your oh-so-funny responses. I don't fucking care and my phone keeps buzzing.

One thing I do not miss about NU: the grandstanding regarding the listserv. It's not Schindler's list they are scrawling on, you fucks.

It's been so much worse in the past year or so. Or maybe I'm just more easily annoyed by it.

I enjoy the KC's of the world. They provide much needed lulz in a shitty atmosphere where type a personality but beta irl goobers put every damn sentence of their (and others) under a microscope. Enjoy that shit. You have the rest of your life to feel like you can't say what you want.
