Welcome to zany schedules & a new trend

My full schedule for this semester:

Monday - Corporate Tax: 2.30-3.45
Chapter 11 Corporate Reorganisation: 4.00-5.50

Tuesday - Nothing

Wednesday - Clinical: 9.30a.m.-12.30/3.00p.m.
Trial Advocacy: 5.30-7.30

Thursday - Corporate Tax: 2.30-3.45
Law, Science & Technology: 4.00-5.50
Trial Advocacy: 6.00-7.00

Friday: Early weekend

A three-day week? I'm speechless.

Of course, I have to work for my clinical during the other days of the week, as well as on my paper for Law, Science & Technology But what the hell. I still have only a three-day week!

I've only attended 3 of my 5 classes and they all sound interesting to me. Even better, my Chap.11 prof. told us flat out that he ain't following the ridiculous B- curve! Apparently he likes doling out A's & B's. He did say that every year there's one student who "just doesn't get it". I'm resolved not to be that student.

On a different note, has anyone noticed that the U.S. law bloggers seem to come from the top ranked schools? I must have read some 15-20 blogs, which in turn make references to other blogs, and the authors all seem to belong to the Ivy League schools. I tried to search, in vain, for bloggers from Temple. None. Apparently I'm the only one wasting my time jabbering away on cyberspace. Widener? None. Upenn? Plenty. Granted, I don't have much by way of a sample size to make such a statement, but it does seem like only the Ivy Leaguers are blogging. Is that true? I'll be very interested to know if my observation is flawed, so give a holler either which way!

In other news, Philly's radiomen seem to be taking a cheap shot at call centre employees in India. American men make Indian women cry. Paris & Nicky become high school teachers. Almost. And conservatives elsewhere grapple with internet porn.

Quote of the Day:
"A spokesman for Welsh Conservatives -- who stressed he had not seen the offending site -- said the problem arose when the Delyn conservatives took on a new Internet address but forgot to renew their ownership of the old name, which was subsequently snapped up by a pornographer. " (emphasis added... duh)

Erm...can't say I'm Ivy League. I'll leave it at that. :)

Oh yay, one fellow non-leaguer! But really, most blogs that I've read happen to be from either the Ivy Leaguers or from those in the top 25 law schools. Maybe it's just the blogs I've come across...I just find it interesting. If I were a sociology major, I'd love to do a paper on this.
