First Year of Law School in the Books!

My first year at LSU Law is in the history book.  My first semester GPA was 3.5, second semester was 3.756 and cumulative is 3.628.  Best grades: 2nd semester Legal Writing (4.0) and Constitutional Law I (4.0). Worst grades: Torts (3.1), Civil Procedure II (3.4) and Legal Traditions (3.4).  I was in the top 10% of my first semester class; but for the entire year, top 4%–ninth in my class of 229.

All-in-all, I had a great year.  I learned a lot of interesting stuff and worked my behind off.  Law school is to college as college is to kindergarten.  Be prepared to spend outrageous amounts of time reading, studying and writing.

Unrelated site: IHateGoogle.com

I noticed another site one the domain ihategoogle.com (this blog is .org), and on it the owner discloses a letter sent from Google complaining about the use of their trademark Google for commercial purposes.

“Your registration and use of the Domain Name is clearly designed to appropriate the goodwill associated with the famous GOOGLE mark in violation of the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act”

Frankly, I’m surprised I’ve never received any letters to that effect.

Of course, I use Adsense, and with the low revenues from this site, nobody could ever in good faith accuse this site of being for commercial purposes!
