This is exactly what I mean. Why would you even bring up non-law terms and expect us to know what they mean? such contra legem, ain't no body got time for that.

I did indeed! It was repetitive, mindless, and left me feeling unfulfilled; this is also how I describe my exam experience, which explains the 1.36 gpa...
On a bright note, if anyone needs assistance with a "Tissue Pom Pom," don't ask me. I will rip it to shreds.

How absurd is it that Georgetown wants to give us ~extra
summer funding~ by asking us to pay for shit now


Why don't I just keep the money and have it fund my summer

Yeah, I was a bit confused by the "Bring a dozen cakes = 1 hour volunteering" option.

That description captures my entire law school experience. Anyhow I hope they raised enough moneys to give us a little extra cash this summer, although no matter what it still won't be sufficient.

That is all wonderful! Down to the purposeful misspellings and stylistic changes between the two "personalities"!
I hope clsh continues to post. I have a special place in my heart for overt trolling.

I heard last year it was under $80 per person. Definitely glad I didn't take the "Buy snacks" option.

what book? There is a concise hornbook that's keyed to our textbook available on Westlaw, which I've found to be pretty helpful when it comes time to review.

Edit: Hand - that was the hornbook that I used. I also highly recommend.
