Yeah well we don't have thunderbird flyovers everyday, so don't get used to it :p.... Anyway, I'd probably have gone to the bar thing tonight if I wasn't currently in Wisconsin. Oh well.

Yeah, I was very sad to miss the event as well ... I was stuck in Texas.

If they operate like last year, your schedule will be the same (time wise) no matter what section you're in. What classes you take might differ though.

I think the idea is that on, say, Tuesday, all 1Ls have class from 10:00 to 11:30, and then from 1:00 to 2:30. But while I might be in Section 1 and have Criminal Law followed by Torts, you might be in Section 2 and have Civil Procedure and Property. I believe that last year 1Ls had 3 one hour courses on M/W/F, and 2 one and a half hour classes on Tues/Thurs.

I hope that helps

Although I would prefer to go with AT&T, I'll go with RCN so that I can bundle internet and cable. I will miss Verizon Fios (and Direct TV for Sunday football).

I don't like that the bundled rates are promo offers that expire in six months...

I found RCN to be a lot cheaper. My internet is only like $17 a month, and the speed is fine.

My husband is very depressed about not being able to get Verizon Fios anymore.

RCN.


As for class schedules, they're up in CAESAR (http://www.northwestern.edu/caesar/), though you prob. won't see section assignments in there for a few more days. But they *will* be available before orientation, if past experience is any guide. Checking blackboard (https://courses.northwestern.edu/webapps/login/) would be a good idea too, as that's how people found out my 1L year. You use your NetID and password to login to both.

Here's some of the schedule data from CAESAR:

Section 1 Civil Procedure, Redish,Martin H
2:35PM 3:30PM Mon Tue Wed RUBLOFF 180

Section 2 Civil Procedure, Allen,Ronald J
8:45AM 9:40AM Mon Tue Wed RUBLOFF 175

Section 3 Civil Procedure, Huestis,Lisa A
2:35PM 3:30PM Mon Tue Wed McCormick 195

Section 4 Civil Procedure, Hoskins,Richard J
2:35PM 3:30PM Mon Tue Wed RUBLOFF 140

It looks like everyone will have civ pro and K's, with the other two being filled by a bizarre mix of crim, conlaw, torts, and property (with the ones you don't take in the fall coming in the spring).


What's "K's"? And also, thanks for the schedule clarification tome and earlcat! That makes a ton more sense...

I think I answered my own question... contracts, right? But why is it called "K's"? When I hear "K's" I think of strikeouts in baseball... :oops:

Anyone doing that week-long NU Law prep class? I rolled up to get my Wildcard today because I was in the area, and there were tons of people there. If any of you are in it, please let us know if they tell you anything that is non-obvious. :)
