Did anyone get any details sent to them last week? I'm anxious to know the ins and outs.

In other news, I got my fall schedule for school. Torts, Contracts, Civ Pro and LRWA. I hope we cover some of those things this summer so I can get ahead :wink:

5lb sandwich in 15 min. I know I could take out a 5lb. sandwich, but that time limit is a little strict.

From their site, "If you do, Jethro will put your picture on the Wall of Fame, give you his famous t-shirt, and buy your sandwich." But Adam Richman from Mvs.F failed, and he's probably a little better qualified to down 5lbs of meat than I am (though not by much...) so that makes me think I'll fail.

Sounds like a pretty good sandwich though: The Missouri Valley Conference Most Valuable Player of 2008 loves this sandwich. It's big... "really big..." just like all of those "really big" shots Adam sank in the Bulldogs' magical MVC Championship Season of 2008. Start with our huge pork tenderloin, add our Angus steak burger, top it with slabs of Texas brisket, apple wood bacon & fried cheese, finished with buffalo chicken tenders. We smother this mountain with melted cheddar cheese, and white cheddar sauce, serve it with your choice of side. This could hurt you! A sandwich fit for the MVP. 24.95

We'll make a trip over there at some point, I'm sure. :mrgreen:

I called the CLEO Six Week Summer Institute the week of 4/4 to inquire about receiving an itinerary of events for TJLS. It looks like the guy taking all of the phone calls is (burned) out but the young woman I spoke with said the aforementioned itinerary would be sent out later in the week. Well I am still waiting; if anyone else could post when they receive the itinerary I believe it will be via email

How do you plan to get from the airport? What time are you arriving? I'm taking a bus, and just want to know how I could get from the bus station to the school. Are there cabs in Des Moines?

I don't expect that you'll know all these answers, just throwing it out there to see if anyone knows.

50 days!

I thought I could work out the Chicago flight + MegaBus to Des Moines route but it became to complicated. I'll most likely buy the plane ticket (major ouch). What day/time are you arriving? I'm all for splitting a cab to where we will be staying.

The MegaBus gets in to Des Moines at Walnut Street and 4th Street at 3:30pm, but they're not always on time. My friend actually waited 2 and a half hours for one once.

I am going to go ahead and save the phone number to the cab company in my phone and see if I can maybe call them when I'm almost at the bus stop. Looks like the bus stop is around 2.5-3 miles from the law school, if that's where we're staying.

Here's the Taxi company website:

I just wish we would get our itinerary info from CLEO!

Why are they sending you to Iowa when you live in SD? Did you request Des Moines

I live in Orange County now. I hear they don't want any distraction while in the program and maybe being close to home is the reason.

And NO I did not request Iowa!

I get in at 10:38 am. Depending on how far/where we are heading from the airport, I'll wait to catch a cab with anyone willing.

Sounds good to me. Send me a PM when it gets closer to June and we can work out the details.

The itinerary really isnt much of anything I can summarize:

arrive the day the program begins, depart the day it ends "sometime in the afternoon," and something about a discount on hotel rooms if you arrive early.

I would like to know if we are going to have single/double dorms at UCSD or grad student housing? I dont mind living with someone as long as we're separated by a door :o
