Depends on if you want to do something post-OGI where it might help, like clerking or going to a firm that hires primarily post-clerkship. It's certainly not going to help if you just get a job from OGI and head straight there.


It could help you during OGI because Lile allows you to put it on your resume over the summer if you've already committed to competing in the fall. That said, I'm not sure it actually will help, but you never know what's going to help and what's not (other than law review and good grades, pretty much everyone agrees that's going to help).

On a scale of Rutherglen to Abraham, does anyone have a sense of what Collins's cold calls are like in his Evidence class?

Appreciate any insight. Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather this week.

I’ve had all three that you mention, and I only had to speak maybe once in evidence with Collins. He’s nice, the classroom is big and as I recall he has some sort of system to get around to everyone, but if you fuck up or don’t have much to say, he will just move on.

There are people who don't take Mitchell for evidence?

Collins does not ordinarily cold call.

At least when I was there, Mitchell's class had 130+ in it. Every seat was taken. Not a lot of time for any individual to be on call.

Regardless of the cold calls (which I don't recall being high pressure) it was entertaining.

Did you have your classes in caplin? The regular classrooms only fit ~60 comfortably.

WB 152&154 are larger than that. They can hold three section classes.

SL 278 too. That can comfortably fit over 100.
