Law School Rescue! (Information Needed)
In Temple’s coffee shop this morning I found an advertisement for “LawSchoolRescue.com”, which promises to help students who feel like they are “drowning” by providing a “secret way to breeze through law school.” As the website and flier describe, the course promises to help you:
- “Turn the tables on your professors so they sound unprepared
- Do a fraction of the work your classmates are doing — and get better grades
- Find and use software that will give you the advantage
- Make Law School even easier with a proven method to prepare yourself mentally
- Study for the bar in a way your classmates can’t
- Learn the secrets that exam writers don’t want you to know”
There’s tons to like here. I would love to know the secret to taking an exam (which if I knew I wouldn’t want my students to know. Is it coherence? Proper weighting? Bribes?) And who wouldn’t want to do less work and get better grades? Of course, to get access to these secrets, there’s a small price: $29.95 plus $6.95 shipping, though the price is only available to the first 100 customers, “after which the price will increase.” This sort of deterred me. What if I had already missed the rush, and was the 101th customer? What if the course cost more than I could pay, leaving me without the secret? I’d feel very sad.
So I figured I throw it out there and ask you folks. Has anyone signed up for the course? Can you tell me what my students can do to turn the tables on me, rarely work, get good grades, and feel good about law school? What’s the secret sauce?
