Hi all,

 

I think I've finally done it and attracted more than 100 PMs asking for maps and summaries.  I'm absolutely awful for not having responded to any of them because I keep meaning to sticky them up here for easy reference.  So, to everyone that has asked and been disappointed at the lack of a reply: sorry! 

 

I've asked this before, but now I'm making a new thread to attract attention.  Can anyone recommend the best service to use to upload those files for ease of download that doesn't require a lot of personal information or cost on my end, or that doesn't require special software (Dropbox) or an account (Google Docs) for the downloader to use? 

 

Alternatively, does anyone have reliable web space in perpetuity that they would be willing to volunteer?

 

Thanks very much, and I hope to edit this post soon with links below to the various files I'll upload.

Google Docs does not require a user account to view files. Just make sure you've set your sharing options on the document so that they can be viewed by anyone with a link.

 

I can't vouch for whether this protects the anonymity of the poster, though.

I'm at 49 emails, though I know I've missed a couple. I apologize for that.

I think google Docs is your best bet. Also, probably a stupid question: can you only use maps and summaries from the same university and professors? For example, if I am a 1L at Windsor I won't be messaging someone from Queens for their 1L summaries and maps, correct?

The law is the law, so it's handy in that way --- just be sure that the map accords with the preferred interpretation of that law put forward by your professor, and remove cases the class did not cover and put in cases the class did cover that aren't in the map.  Every Constitutional class is going to cover Parsons, but not all of them will necessarily consider Friends of the Oldman River or the National Securities Regulator reference.

Friends of the Oldman River

 

U of C has an obsession over that case.  I think I've read it six separate times.  Well, "read."

So you still have no idea about the holding? :)

Don't the various law student societies host cans and summaries already?

 

UBC has a whole database set up for it... http://www.ubclss.org/can_main.html  organized by course, prof, etc... In years past there were prizes and shit for uploading cans to the database.

 

 

Or is that just a west coast thing?  Or have I missed the point or something?

Everyone looking for these kinds of things also needs to keep in mind that the law does change, so if you're working from outdated materials you may be using the wrong law. I'm sure Uriel's got some great documents but if he took contracts before Tercon then you could run into some problems trying to use his contracts materials. :)

UofA does not. We have to pay for printed copies. Props to the UBC LSS for doing it right.

I took admin law before Roncarelli.

 

That's nothing. There's this old guy who's around here once in a while, Rumpole, who took constitutional before the magna carta.

DropBox works really well, it's free and doesn't require an account or software. You just need to make an account and put everything in the public folder, then paste the link to the public folder.

That's... super lame.

 

Does it at least go to pay for the grad dinner or something?

    • Thanks for the input. Yeah, the climate isn't the biggest factor for me. I want to live and work in either Calgary or Vancouver because I have family in both cities. Not Edmonton. I understand that if I want to practice in BC (UBC/UVIC aren't an option for me) U of A is the better choice. So is it worth going to Edmonton and networking out there even though I have no intention of staying there? Or should I go to Calgary where there is a fairly good chance I might stay there.    I'm probably going to end up attending U of A because the tuition and cost of living are cheaper and I'm paying for school myself.
    • @Psychometronic I agree with you it wasn' ideal, there are better ways to handle it, I would have personally loved 4 months and taken my time in a different manner but that's just me, in reality the situation unfolded differently  My reason for mentioning that was more to illustrate to OP that although I averaged 168 over a large sample size( over 30 practice tests, albeit i showed high variance e.g. scoring 172 on a test and next day scoring a 160) and my max tail end of my lsat score distribution was in the high 170 range, my actual real day test scores ended up being all the way at the other end of the distribution tail end ( the 160 and 162 range, literally my lowest scores in my entire distribution), and this was not due to nerves I usually looked forward to the moment to be honest, there are reason I can speculate to why this happened but not relevant to my point for OP. Point was mostly that I know it sucks but sometimes our lsat scores in our practice tests can Defintley predict our possible range for test day, but to predict the exact score could be more difficult e.g. it could end up on the high end of your distribution or the low end, planning for the absolute high end is probably not a good idea in making life plans      Age should not necessarily be a deterrent, I myself will be 28 when I enter law school this September , but for my situation it makes sense to me , for others it may not , we each must individually evaluate our own circumstances I have known people to go to medical school in a md/PhD program finishing  at 40 and eventually  become faculty head in that md/PhD program  , I know multiple people who started their PhD at 26 ( PhD in biologal sciences can easily take 5 to 6 years sometimes depeding on school and field etc) so they finished mid 30s after postdocs etc and they ended up in tenure track professors jobs at very respected institutions, great life great salary they love their job etc etc etc  Don' let age alone stop you, but look carefully at your situation and where you wanna be at a given age and how you want your circumstances to be ( some people might want to already be earning a living for their family at 31, not applying to law schools ),     
    • *Whoops, I should've probably mentioned that I did in fact receive an offer with the above stats and that's why I wouldn't worry if I were you lol. Good luck!
    • Why not? Do you not figure that the students are any different in between NYU and Cardozo?
