Anything happening Thursday night after orientation? Do we know what time we'll be done on campus?

I know there's a happy hour for all the social justice student orgs from 6-8 on Thursday. I'm not sure where, but I imagine they'll let us know on Thursday.

There's a website that gives you estimates of what will be payed out to you, based on your length of service, but I cannot seem to find it. Can anyone else?

Only it's not Candi. I went and saw her today (after Michael sent me there) and that's Registrar business, not FinAid. Nancy at the Registrar's office said we wouldn't get them signed until we register on Thursday(otherwise, we run the risk of being certified for only 6 hours for "Law 205"-- rather than the 15-16 we'll really be taking).


Thanks so much for this - you just saved me a trip to the Finaid office. The Registrar at the law school is MUCH more convenient. :D

It will save you literally hours of waiting around. Good luck, I almost got into a fistfight at the DMV today :/ Something about that environment breeds hostility. See you all on Thursday :P


Thanks! Got my plates and everything today, too.

Don't think I'm going to make it to the picnic, because I'm kind of shy and have no friends/family to bring for company. But I'm down to meet up with some people afterwards, so whatever the plans are, post on here. :) Also, I think everyone from TLS should wear nametags or something during the first day of orientation, so we can all find each other!

You should come! A lot of us are super friendly and I think most people aren't bringing friends or family. You definitely won't be the only one on your own.

You should definitely come! I'm in the same boat - no friends/family, heck I just moved in yesterday :shock: - so I'm hoping to meet a bunch of people. I'm down for something after, too!

I'm headed there without any family. I think it will be fine.

Also, I think most of us are down to hang out after. Let's just try to avoid the UG bars this time ;)

Edit: Look for me. I'm the one who looks like a hobbit.

I won't be at the picnic today but I look forward to meeting TLS'ers tomorrow. I will be easy to spot - I am Gandhiesque/Madisonian in stature (5'3"-5'4" :P ) with short, black hair and will be one of the very few international students. I will in all probability be the only one that meets this description. Please do say hi if you see me because I just know rotor as of now. Here's to years of friendship down the road!

Since we're trying to find each other, I'll be in brown pants, blue shirt, denim jacket. I'm a tall blonde and I don't think I'm too hard to find. :)

mod 5 section G here so if anyone from G or mod 5 wants to out themselves too, I'm game 8)

Also, anything happening Friday night? I didn't go/ am not going out tonight. But tomorrow night I'm down for a few beers. But I'd rather be with a small group (10-12 people at most) than mingle in a large, faceless crowd.

btw, rotor, nice seeing you again. And, amy, nice to meet you! I didn't see worldtraveler and emilybeth's posts so wasn't on the lookout. But I sure would like to meet you guys, too.

Is Telebears down for everyone or is it just me? Also, the grants haven't been applied to CARS yet for everyone, right? Right? (CARS or whatever the hell it is called that handles the money side of things been telling me I have to pay minimum amount blah blah before my private loan gets disbursed).

I asked financial aid about this today. The blonde lady (I forget her name) is really, really nice. If it's not showing up it's not a problem. My loan isn't showing up but she said it is for the administrative side I guess.


If there is any interest, I'm going to call for an impromptu TLS lunch meeting tomorrow at Boalt. I've found a few TLSers but some of you guys hide really well.
12 noon, the terrace area by the Goldberg room (AKA the bookstore). I'll be there, and you should be able to find me. Tall blonde, blue shirt, black sweater, red rimmed glasses. Seriously if you can't see me just yell "WT" and see what happens.

WT, sounds like a good plan but 12 noon won't work for me or for people in sections D, F, B and G because the LRW session goes until 12:30. How about 12:30'ish?

OK let's change to 12:45. Does that work for every section? I'm not looking at the schedule so hopefully that works.
