There is a Criminal Clinic at my school where you get to work with real DAs and real Criminals for credit. It’s a year long. I desperately wanted in, because for whatever reason, I need criminality in my life. They choose people by lottery and I didn’t win. I was bummed. Another year of classes for me.
I don’t know if I mentioned it but my schedule for next semester is totally Fubar. Registration is done by a kind of lottery. You put in your requests, number the classes you want the most, and then wait. So I put in requests for a combination of responsible classes and “fun” classes. My thought was that they will give me most of my responsible classes and maybe one or two fun classes. The most important thing is that I had to get into Evidence. If I want to work in a DAs office this summer, its required.
Well, my class schedule came back and I was shocked. First of all, they put me in all of the fun classes. Yes to Animal Law, Poverty Law, Immigration Law – I Iook like a freaking communist. No to Evidence and Corporations and Federal Tax. But I did get into some responsible classes for my Spring Semester, so I thought Ok.
But then I get an email saying that someone had dropped out of the Criminal Clinic and did I want his place? Did I? You bet. So I signed up for the Clinic, which starts in the Spring.
So here is the problem. Evidence is a prerequisite. So I have to get into Evidence in the Add Drop Period. Plus, all of my responsible classes in the Spring Semester, you know the classes that might help me with a job or pass the bar, have to be dropped. I have to get into something more substantial for the Fall. It all comes down to the Add Drop period later on this month.
Law School is just one coronary after another.
