There are all these annoying posters everywhere from a certain annoying company saying: "Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah! We told you IRAC doesn't work! You must buy our products and/or services!" That's a load of...hooey! IRAC doesn't work, and it doesn't not work either. It's one way to look at cases that might work or might not work depending on how you use it. It helps to have a system, but there's no one right system. And if you're smart enough to get into law school, I think you're smart enough to come up with a system that works for you.
Also, I thought about doing one of those summer pre-law programs last summer. I'm kind of glad I didn't do it. I don't think it would have helped me much. It might be right for some people, but it's pretty expensive. I haven't run into anyone here that did it.
