What articles do you want written by fellow TLSers?

Many years ago TLS held a content competition. The competition is no longer active, but this forum keeps going.

I dont know if this was mentioned anywhere ITT already, but info on clerking and timeline/how to clerk would be immensely helpful.

I think it would be helpful to have an article on general law school etiquette. I know most of this is common sense, but it is nice to have a refresher course and older students probably have a list of peeves that most of the 0L's (like me) haven't even thought of.

Ex.:
knowing when to shut up about all of the offers you have
things to not do in the law library
how to not be a gunner
living with non-LS grad students (random room assignments)
living with another LS student
discussing (or not) grades and/or exams with peers
a guide to gossip
best ways to maintain contact with the outside world (parents and non LS friends)

things to not do in the law library Things that would distract others, where you raised in a fucking barn?
how to not be a gunner
living with non-LS grad students (random room assignments) Few schools have dorms, hit craigslist. If you don't have the da spregz you should be fine
living with another LS student
discussing (or not) grades and/or exams with peers Again, you don't fucking do it ever. Nothing comes from discussing exams other than you possibly realzing one of you fucked up, and guess what you can't fucking change it. Grades? Don't fucking talk about it. Ever.
a guide to gossip As hard as you can without spreading false rumors
best ways to maintain contact with the outside world (parents and non LS friends)nut up and realize law school is easier than a 9-5 job in terms of keeping up with friends and family.

Not really a new article, but updated and expanded T14 profiles would be nice. New medians, stats, COA, and pics would be really cool. Duke, for instance has zero pictures an just a few paragraphs of info.

If all of the profiles were like Michigan's, that'd be really helpful to applicants.

Something that I'd like to see is a few graphs of the LSAT medians for some of the T14 schools to see how they've changed over time

Thanks for all you do, Ken. This is an amazing site.

I'd like to echo what was suggested upthread about info and resources for nontrad students, as well as advocate for updated LRAP profiles. I don't feel like we can really talk about an expanded analysis of public interest options without including LRAP info in a serious way.

I would like a guide to negotiating scholarships and a guide to doing well in 1L. Maybe titled, "You got in, now what?"
