I WAS a first year law student that started April 1st, Oh the irony of that date. I am posting this to inform others of my disappointment with Concord as I learn about more and more of my fellow classmates being dismissed due to a C- grade, it seems this is the majority of my class so far maybe that actually moved on to take the FYLSE. I am not afraid to go public with my disappointment with Concord, this is outrageous that they would do this to a class and their students that they are supposed to be getting to the exam.
I find many 0Ls enter law school with a desire to excel but no idea what do to get there. Many strategies work well, but you have to get a lot of advice to find the tactics that are best for you. Interview by Evan Jones, co-blogger on lawschooli. Would you say there was anything in your undergrad experience that particularly helped to prepare you for law school?
Something you would recommend that other prospective law students do? That seems off to me. Same goes for economics. The only thing that can really give you a boost is a reading-intensive major. I did a lot of classics and history where I was reading in English, Latin and Greek for hours, so the transition into law school was not a shock at all.
Some quick background stuff: What materials did you use and how long did you study. Did you self-study or take a class? They really are the best. I started with the Games first. I made numerous photocopies of every game that LSAC has released.
I only used real LSAT games. I really was all about predicting the patterns, types, and difficulties of the games. As I found, one game may take a good test taker four minutes; another will take twelve. After I got the format down and got familiar with the kinds of questions and what the exam was about I did timed sections only.
The first ten questions you want to get done quickly and correctly because 18 or 23 could take 3. I found taking timed sections to be the only way to go study-wise. I would do three a day and then built up to doing five a day, sometimes in a row, sometimes with breaks, to get my stamina up.
I never did more than five a day or studied more than 3 hours a day- the idea being is that the test is a focused 3-hour exertion, pushing at home beyond that limit does no good.
It worked well enough for me. The whole damn exam is a time crunch. Now you chose Cornell University Law, can you tell us a bit about your decision to attend Cornell? Has it been what you expected? Cornell is an amazing school. The professors are great.
Professors are eager and approachable overall and receptive to questions in office hours or after class. I have no idea why people do it.
Grading is entirely blind except for maybe the class participation boost. There are speakers as well- too many to attend your 1L year.
I think ten federal judges visited for brown bag lunches over the course of the year. Any of the smaller schools are going to feel like high school 2. Now you clearly put in an exceptional performance 1L year, making it into the top 10 percent of your class.
I think what people reading this are going to want to know about most are your methods. How did you approach the workload early on? So, showing up is part of the battle.
Also… that means showing up not hungover. This is dense stuff. There is no passive learning in law school. I loved Torts, but my professor notoriously got off topic. It was immensely interesting, but I ended up teaching myself the material.Download-Theses Mercredi 10 juin Download-Theses Mercredi 10 juin Ashworth College Reviews: 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.

CLS provides an excellent legal education.
The path to success, however, is not easy. It takes dedication, many hours, and practice, practice, practice. Boston College Law School is among the nation’s best law schools. Our success is based on a tradition of educating lawyers through theory and practice, shaping leaders prepared to grapple with society's most important moral and ethical questions.
As a student who left Ashworth for lack of transferability let me provide some advice when looking for college help. I can say with over 7 colleges under my belt as a result over the term of my years to completing a degree program.
