Signing Off

After spending three years of law school and seven years at BU (over a quarter of my life!), I’m happy to say that it has all finally come to an end. This past week I took the New York and Massachusetts bar exams. My classmates and I spent the entire summer after graduation studying for […]

Game Over

I’ve been officially done with all things law school this past week. It’s an interesting feeling because for the first time in a LONG time, I have no outlining, reading, papers or studying to do. I’ve been playing a lot of video games because all my friends have exams or papers to turn in (exams […]

Welcome!

Dear Admitted Student(s), I’ve gleaned a lot of wisdom about BU over the years. After all, I’ve spent 7 years, or roughly a little over a quarter of my life at BU (undergraduate + law school). There is too much wisdom to share, so I’ll try to limit myself. 1.) Weather. If you are from […]

Law Prom

When I first started law school, the similarities between law school and high school became apparent quite fast. We all have lockers, each year’s class is roughly 300 people (the size of a high school class), we all take the same classes and have the same class schedules (at least with 90 or so people), […]

Legal Follies

Law school is tough and time-consuming enough, but a group of BU Law students takes it to an entirely new level. The Legal Follies is a sketch-comedy student group at BU School of Law and each February they perform a three-hour or so long variety show for three nights. The group holds auditions in the […]

All Locked Out

This fall there is a real chance that there will be no football or basketball because the collective bargaining agreements (CBA) between the National Football League (NFL) and its players and the National Basketball Association (NBA) and its players both expire this year. Unfortunately, the team owners and players in each sport are nowhere close […]

Networking

Networking, networking, networking! Throughout law school you’re told by everyone how important it is to network. As a 1L, networking is the last thing you want to do or have time for, given the reading that’s due tomorrow, the moot court brief hanging over your head and a looking for a summer job. What is […]

Snow Days

This past Friday, BU had a delayed opening (the University opened at 11am instead of 9am) because of an early morning snowstorm. The week before, BU and other colleges and universities closed down for a day because of another snowstorm. Snow days are supposed to be fun, but they can sometimes cause great problems. As […]

3L-itis

When I woke up this morning, I realized that today would be my last first day of school ever . . . unless, of course, I decided that I want to earn another degree. That’s doubtful because now I’m almost done with 19th grade (think about that one . . . 12 years + 4 […]

Food Divide

The main story in a recent Newseek issue was about the food divide that is currently growing in the United States. “Foodie culture” has exploded with shows like “Top Chef’” and everything on the Food Network. Chefs across the country are promoting “slow food” and the use of local ingredients. Farmers markets seem to be […]
