Anonymous posting in the OCI Forum

Can we get the power to post anonymously in the OCI forum? I think most people would rather not have their usernames attached to those kinds of posts.

Submitting a controversial paper to a writing competition?

My professor suggested that I submit a paper that I wrote on organ donation to the state bar's student writing health law competition. It's got some nice cash prizes, so I'm considering it. However, the argument I made in the paper is kind of controversial and also not an opinion I actually agree wi...

Re: UVA Law Students & Graduates Taking Questions

I'm trying to decide between $$- at UVA and $$$$ at WUSTL and am fairly debt averse. I would like to do PI in the vein of ACLU or SPLC and I know UVA gives a much better chance at this. However, I just wanted to ask, what's the chance of it in more absolute terms? What % of students who want that c...

I'm outside the T6; got an interview request on Monday and an offer on Tuesday of this last week. I know K&E Houston made at least 2 offers on Friday. I'd give it another week or so before givi...

Can we get a "Fall 2018" option for uploading to the outline bank?

I tried to upload my outline for a class that I just finished, and "Fall 2018" is not yet an option in the drop-down box for which semester the outline was made for.

Re: UVA Law Students & Graduates Taking Questions

How diverse is the campus/surrounding area? I know that UVA, as with most law schools, is predominately white, but I’m seeking some insight on the campus culture with respect to race. In my section of 32 1Ls, I think about 10 of them are ethnic minorities. That seems about right proportionally for ...

I'm compiling useful original content from LSL, Reddit, and the graveyard that is TLS that might be helpful to us as we start law school. This is especially geared towards 1Ls, but there's some stuff that other students may find useful as well. If anyone has anything else they think should be includ...

Thanks a ton for this! In the past I'd heard that it's really important to do something law-related with your 1L summer to show interest; was that bad advice?

You're currently a lawyer yourself? Or are you also a 0L hoping to facilitate more networking for the group?
Also a 0L, probably should have specified that in the prompt!

This may be off-topic for this forum - I'll delete it if so! I somehow ended up as lead admin of a private LinkedIn Group that's got about 300 members (people who knew each other loosely from a different thing, so it's not likely to grow), all of whom are entering law school this Fall. They go to a ...

Re: How and when do I take practice exams?

One thing I wish I had done earlier was look over professors' past exams to get a sense for the style of exam/questions (brain dump, policy, ect.). I would recommend looking at an exam in each course early on (maybe a month or so in) and then try to think about the material through the frame you'll...

How and when do I take practice exams?

I've been reading all the guides on here and TLS, and one of the more intuitive pieces of advice that I keep seeing is that you want to take practice tests early and often, so that you can get used to a law school exam. But I expect that professors will be teaching new material right up until readin...

I'm trying to get an early start on buying a few of the supplements that I'll want for 1L, but all of the advice I'm seeing about which hornbooks are the best is 8-10 years old.
