Sorry to hear that, hopefully 2013 goes a bit better for you.
Law is quite tough and definitely not something to be underestimated. I havent done any extra-curriculars yet - to be honest, it's something I'm saving towards the end of the degree. I guess that at the moment, I'm not to sure where I'm headed with uni and stuff so I'm just waiting to get a clearer view of things.
Being a law student is pretty tough, but if you're motivated (and have some natural talent) then its definitely survivable. As for me I am not too sure what I will end up doing - I'm considering dropping law altogether. I have been getting alright marks, but I just dont have the motivation (like I had for the HSC) anymore. I might continue on with business and work in the field for a couple of years before moving on to something different. Good luck with making law.
Things are going good - assignments are coming to a close and exam preparation is coming up. Uni moves so fast, you have no time to take a break! So hows uni life for you? You might miss out on mid year intake, although with some solid marks you have a great chance for next years intake.
oh shit you serious? that sucks man, have you thought bout just switching majors or something? I recon its not to bad seeing as how we get 2 electives in second semester and only have to do 1 core IR sub a year
Thanks for the congratz. Uni has been orite for me - the workload is high but I'm more prepared for it now then I was last year - so I am getting on top of assignments quickly. Uni seems really daunting in the first few weeks but you realise that it isnt as intense as you think as you move on into the semester. The key is to get on top of things quickly, and to not waste time with stuff that is pointless.
I saw that you had a minor for eco for int. studies, how do we find out how we do our minors?
ATM mine is international studies with same major as you, international business. How do minors work with int. studies? i thought we just get IR automatically and choose a second major =/
Not too bad thanks, just waiting for uni to start! I got into Criminology at UNSW, want to transfer to law hopefully next year. Btw, what was your ATAR? i dont think I asked you? Mine ended up being 92.45 lol. 96 was the desired one, oh well! What'd you get into?
