Holy crap, they work fast! I think they should jump ten spots in USN&WR now.

Holy Smokes!

It was pretty sad and 1995 Geocities-esque.

Class schedules are up!

Kinda. I don't think they're finished, since I don't LW&R yet. Or my section number (at least, it's not explicitly stated anywhere that I've seen).

Can't help with the LW&R -- I was assigned to one, so maybe they're still working on it?

As for the section, you can tell what you are depending on the number after the star (150*11 is section 1, 150*12 is section 2, 150*13 is section 3, etc.) Take a look at your core classes (Civil Pro, etc.)

My schedule was up yesterday minus LWR, and by this morning it was added as well. So expect yours within the next day or so. Any idea when the book lists for the classes will be released?

Ah, I figured that's what "15" meant. So. I'm in section 5. Also known as the section for winners.

I'm in Section 2. Off to half.com to get a copy of the Buffalo Creek Disaster. Did you guys get that e-mail? I am in that section.

Haha...I just did the same thing 5 minutes ago! I was going to buy all my textbooks and study aids at the same time from half.com but I can't find what textbooks we need. Does this mean we'll either have to (1) pre-order the textbooks from the bookstore or (2) have to wait until the first day of class to find out what books we need? Seems shady...

I'm wondering if they're going to wait until after the last day of pre-ordering before they release the list. I wouldn't mind pre-ordering if the prices are comparable to getting the books new from amazon, but I'd like to find out for sure before shelling out the money in advance. Is anyone else thinking about doing the preorder? It seems like the convenience might be worth it.

Can we pre-order now? I got an e-mail about that as well, but I couldn't really tell if it was available now or if they were just telling us about it. I agree, if the prices are even somewhat comparable, it's definitely worth it to me for the convenience.

And this might be a really silly question, but what about used books? If you do the pre-order, are they all going to be new and full-price?

If you look at the firstclass assignments, they include at least the casebook needed for that particular class.

Unfortunately, there's only one assignment posted right now.

You can pre-order now, but I think that you have to go through Follett online. The address they gave me is http://www.uchastings.edu.bkstr.com. I believe that the last day is next Monday.

Based on LSN, it looks like you'll want to shoot for at least a 162, but preferably higher (164+) to be sure. Good luck!

So the Hastings alumni association has invited me to go watch the rockies take on the dodgers at dodger stadium with all the hot dogs I can eat. I wonder if they are aware that there is a stadiuim right here in san francisco where a team called the giants play. If they are sending out all this dodger stuff, why not send some stuff out where the school is actually located? Since Hastings isn't affiliated with an undergraduate institution one would think that the Giants would be the natural choice of sports teams to root for. And sure, they should be able to do whatever they want... but does it have to be the dodgers? Really? You are inviting a whole crowd of people who live(d) in San Francisco to go watch their rivals? The only reason I would watch that game is to cheer for the rockies. Now I am about mad enough to actually watch that game. Go Colorado.
oh and btw, yeah, i'm in section three. anyone? section three?

i think the lrw lwr? sections are much smaller. I am in section three, and my LWR class ends in 1 as well. does that help?

I thought that this was funny as well. I was wondering if they mistakenly thought I lived in southern California or something.

As for LWR, aren't those really small, like 15 people? I think I read that somewhere on the website.

nice to mee you too prettypithy! maybe we can throw shit at gunners. and make fun of them? that seems to be the cool thing to do in lecture. and hopefully we wont be the gunners, or that would be awkward. so yeah, the numbers on the LWR dont mean shit, its all about the civil procedure sections. (someone was asking aobut that, and its posted by someone else, i am just repearting, but im too lazy to go find where it was posted)

Yeah, I'm in section 2 and got that e-mail as well... I'll probably pick it up at a local bookstore.

Anyone else make to SF yet? If you're interested in checking out the city, send me a PM!

Did anyone end up doing the pre-order for books? I didn't and now kind of regret it, because the list of books is still not available. Is it unusual that they haven't given us that yet, or am I jumping the gun?

I went ahead and signed up for the pre-order. I don't know if it's unusual to hold back the book list this long, but they definitely seem to be "encouraging" us to use the bookstore rather than a third party. Worked on me I guess. If you guys are curious, the total on the books was just over $500.

Booklists are up on-line.

http://www.uchastings.bkstr.com

I saved over $120 by waiting it out... $424 (new) v. $546 (new).

Now they just need to show-up via expedited shipping in time.
