Did some snooping on an old board... the glitch actually happened for the class of 2010, but someone mentioned it on the class of 2011 board that I was reading when I thought I would be starting then. It was the same thing that happened to us (i.e., being posted on MyHLS), but it sounds like they actually got to see their class schedules. Then it was quickly taken down...a few days (weeks?) later they got snail mail letters with their section assignments and other information. It sounds like the sections didn't change from what they saw on MyHLS.

Here is the link to the class of 2010 board when it happened: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php?topic=87020.msg2375664

And here is the link to the class of 2011 board where they discussed it (it has a lot of information about professors, so you might be interested): http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,97342.330.html

Thanks for the research, Jenna! :)

I'm already in town and living just a few doors down from the Scholar. It's a pretty good bar. We're in a very good location, just a few minutes walk from Inman Square (some cooler bars) and Union Square (less college-y). Also less than 10 minutes away is R.F. O'Sullivans: Best Burgers in Boston. I think you'll find the walk to campus a little longer than 5 minutes though, I clock it at more like 12, but it's a very fast bike ride.
PM me if you want to get together sometime, I'll be around!


Very nice! I got my apartment without seeing it (sent my mom and sister...they rock). So I suppose they were exaggerating about the proximity :) No big deal...maybe I'll get a bike!

Also, I was thinking about that section “glitch” this week...I was originally going to be a class of 2011-er, but then deferred, and the same “glitch” about people getting their schedules happened last year. Hmm...


Yes, the Thirty Scholar is more like a 12 minute walk from campus. Dali (Tapas restaurant at the corner of Kirkland and Beacon) is pretty awesome for food or for sangria. The Wine and Cheese Cask, which is at the same corner, is also pretty sweet for ... well ... wine and cheese. A lot of graduate students live around there. Union Square is a bit sketch but Inman Square is super hip. Man, I'm already starting to miss Cambridge/Harvard. I didn't think I would. You guys are going to have a great few years.

Thanks for the tip on the Sangria man. I'll have to make sure to drag some of my section out there every once in a blue moon.

And about Cambridge, yeah, I'm very excited to be living there for the next three years. However, I wouldn't sell yourself short. I mean, as the 203 Blog DRILLED INTO MY HEAD over the span of last year, there are awesome restaurants and places to eat all over New Haven.

Right?

Right?

You better think very carefully about testing the party line in the future, son. ;)

(Sorry for the rather bizarre nature of that post, btw. Its a mixture of my stir-craziness, me wishing I was near NY so I could have gone to the fancy shindig and my bitter memories of frustration about that blog's food obsession.)

Yes, I remember that post about burgers that had people pretty frustrated. Personally, I'll take tapas and sangria over burgers any day of the week. But I have hope for New Haven, and I plan to spend a lot of time in NYC next year.

If you want to take your small groups somewhere, I would recommend Charlie's Kitchen in Harvard Square. It was one of my favorite places even before they opened the beer garden last year. Though now that I think about it, the inside of Charlie's might be a bit too seedy for law students, but the outside beer garden is trendy. I always order the double lobster roll and beer fries. The food is super cheap, and they also have great beers on tap. The kitchen also stays open late.

And I bet a lot of you have already been to Cambridge Common on Mass Ave just a few blocks north of the law school. They always have seating inside (one of the only bars where you can count on getting a table for your group) and many beers on tap, although the food really went downhill in the last few years.

So my mom just told me that when one of her cousins did our family history they found out that our family used to have a farm on the land where Harvard is. Too bad I can't get some of tuition discount for that. Anyone who can discover a way for me to reclaim the land for my family will receive a nice cut of the court settlement :)

New Haven actually as an astonishing number of good restaurants given the nature of the city. Yale is pretty much to thank for that. Additionally, for the most part, they're concentrated along one street (Chapel).

Haha. Those of us who frequent Union Square haunts work hard to maintain the "sketch" image so the "super hip" kids from Inman Square stay away :)

I'll give you a shiny new nickel if you wrote HLS a letter saying that you demand a tuition discount in repayment for your family's lost farm. I think it would get quite the attention in the Dean's office. ;)

Last night's HLSA event was fun.

It's always good bonding with Zefron.

Next time a random group of people in a bar thinks I'm Zac Efron, I'm seriously going to sign autographs. I don't even care about the potential fallout.

No, he did it to me, that selfish bastard. I had this hair for over a year before anyone started commenting on it.

Anyone else still waiting on confirmation of the receipt of immunization forms? I sent those in at the beginning of the month or something.

Yeah, they seem to be rather bipolar over there; they are either REALLY QUICK to get back to you or they take forever. There's no middle ground. I wouldn't worry too much.

Did you send them via mail or fax? I sent mine via fax around July 12 or so and have received confirmation already.

I faxed mine on the day there were due and just got confirmation of receipt today! What is the deal with the winter term? The academic calendar is a bit depressing.

Yeah, we will have NO break time for the next few years. The past few years, I've had basically a month off in the winter. This will be rough...

Eh, 12/19-1/3 isn't terrible.

Also, I received confirmation about my immunization records, but not the other two forms...

Well coupled with the lack of any real Thanksgiving break, I think it is kind of terrible. Maybe I'm just in undergrad long break mode...

Oh, that's halfway decent. Only a few days shorter than my usual winter breaks.

I am used to a week-long Thanksgiving break though. We didn't get a "Fall break" like some schools, though. I understand that many schools have a long weekend then and another long weekend for Thanksgiving. Instead we just get a week off for the latter.

At least we don't have finals anymore after [strike]Christmas[/strike] (sorry, this is going to be the first non-sectarian school I've ever gone to) Winter Break. If I had that looming over my head during the holidays, I would weep and probably steal some kid's candy cane, just out of malice.

HLS decreased the max amount of our computer reimbursement from $3,000 to $2,000.

Awesome! Good way to save money. Lord knows how cash-strapped HLS is :roll:

Edit: Actually, they're not saving money. The computer reimbursement is a loan, not a grant. They simply increase our budget by that amount and allow us to take out an additional loan. So, WTF would they decrease our allowance for?

Keep in mind that this $2,000 is meant to cover:

APPROVED ACCESSORIES
Monitors (Note: You may purchase a monitor with both desktops and laptops.)
Printers
Ink Cartridges
Basic Computing Software i.e. Microsoft Office/Windows, MAC OS, Firewalls, Antivirus (Note: For specific software inquiries, please contact Student Financial Services. If you purchase software that is not specifically listed here without prior written approval from Student Financial Services, inclusion of that software in your approved computer loan amount will be at the discretion of the office.)
Computer Speakers
Keyboard/Mouse
Carrying Cases
Extra Memory/Wireless/Video/Sound Cards
External Hard Drives or CD/DVD Drives
Palm Pilots/PDAs/Handhelds
Routers/Modems
USB/Firewire Hubs/Cables/Adapters
Batteries
Notebook Computer Docks
Notebook Computer Locks
Warranty (Note: Since students are approved for one computer loan throughout his/her entire enrollment at HLS, we recommend purchasing extended warranties whenever possible.)

Reimbursement makes it sound like they give us cash money... do you mean loan?
