So I boasted about the furniture I got from Wal-Mart a couple days ago. Well, now that I've assembled it, I must say I regret buying it. The file cabinet and bookshelf are fine, but the desk took forever to assemble and is a piece of junk. Rather than spend all year dealing with a wobbly desk, I decided to go to Staples. I found an absolutely amazing desk for $30, and it took only 20 minutes to assemble. For anyone still in need of a desk, Staples is having great deals on desks that are actually decent.

I'm not a fan of highlighting either--or notes in the margin.

Quick question so I don't feel like an ass tomorrow: what is everyone wearing? I recall the orientation materials saying casual but is everyone sticking to that?

If I see anyone wearing a suit to orientation I will seek them out and stuff them in a locker.

I noticed on the schedule there is a ton of down time during orientation, is there stuff we need to be doing then or is it just for mingling, etc.?

Also, is anyone bringing anything like their laptop or whatever? Is there anything we are supposed to bring or need to have with us?

I'm wearing a robe in preparation for my career as a federal judge.

I am probably going to wear either jeans and a casual shirt or shorts and a casual shirt, depending on how cooperative my boot is.

For part of your downtime you're going to be on a law school tour with your small section PA. Other than that, it's just mingling time. I don't think most people brought laptops to orientation. This is your first major chance to meet your class so I'd say walk around and talk to people.

Oh, no, so there is a lot of walking involved? Do you think they would let me skip the tour or something?

Are you a PA, or do you just help orient us on TLS ;)?


Nope, not a PA. Easier to help out who I want when I want instead of being assigned a section and given required duties.

I guess you could probably skip the tour? Just ask and they'll probably understand.

I just found this online...seems like a good idea if you're planning on eating at the law school at all. Every little bit helps, right?

http://www.law.virginia.edu/html/news/m ... ne_faq.htm

FLEX Dollars: Beside the convenience of not having to carry cash, opening a FLEX account saves you a 9-percent tax on every food purchase. A FLEX account is a declining balance account that is coded to your University identification card's magnetic strip; if you do not have a University ID, a separate card will be issued to you. If you are opening an account, the initial deposit is $200. Once you have set up your FLEX account, you may add any dollar amount at any time.

Customers may establish or add funds to a FLEX account online. FLEX program brochures, including an enrollment form, also are available at the Stone Dining Room or at the Sidley Austin Café. FLEX dollars are honored at the Stone Dining Room, Sidley Austin Café, Greenberry's coffee bar, or any one of the many U.Va. dining locations on Grounds, including Alderman Café, Poolside Café at the Aquatic and Fitness Center, Newcomb Hall, and Pavilion XI.

I'll wear a tux if you cover the rental.

I configured my iphone a few weeks ago... pretty easy if you follow the instructions from ITC and the wireless coverage is pretty good (I had WIFI in the parking lot).
