Comforting and disconcerting at the same time.

Unemployment is high on your mind?

It is nice to see Columbia taking care of its grads.

Not getting offered... getting offers revoked... delayed/deferred start dates... actually having to compete as a summer... all the perks of being a summer getting cut... firms cutting associate salaries (again)... an egregious thwacking of bonuses... the death of lock-step... not finding a summer gig 2L...

My hope is that the economy will have recovered by the time we graduate, or that at the very least firms will have adjusted and we won't get bushwacked by retracted offers in the same way that recent classes have.

But your point is well taken.

My brain keeps telling me that we have to turn in a form regarding a physical or something signed by our Dr. about vaccinations. Anyone remember if this is the case and, if so, when it's due?

Mid July: Submission deadline for medical documentation to Health Services Office certifying that you have been immunized against measles (in accordance with New York State Health Department requirements). Forms can be found on the main Columbia University website.

Note: Students may not matriculate without this medical documentation. Please refer all questions regarding immunizations to hs-enrollment@columbia.edu

I thought it was that they were only offering the fellowships to 5 students? Not that there were only 5 who couldn't get jobs.

EDIT: I really don't care about this, thought I would just point out the semantics.

I believe there is a TLS wide NYC meetup on Saturday June 13th. How do you all feel about having a pre-TLS Columbos only meetup? Then, later in the evening, we can join the other TLSers if we choose or we can just keep our own party going!

Post your thoughts here and I'll try to arrange it with the other TLSers if you all are interested.

June 13th looks okay to me. I am pretty neutral as to meeting up with other TLSers, but I am definitely down for the Columbos meetup.

I think that's a good idea. The CLS TLS brigade can show up to the main event nice and hammered... if we show up at all.

Well this all sounds great, now all I need to decide is if I am going to wear this or this to our little get together.

Hahaha, if you wear either of those, you'll need to walk around with a copy of this for counter-balance.

Why go with an 80's-style, high-rise, gold miniskirt when you could go with a modern trash bag and duct tape? :lol:

That's wicked hot. I think the only really question I have is, what color tube top goes best with that. Might I suggest fuchsia?

*Bows head* Damn it. You win.

Let's design some kickass gold trashbags, then patent them. They'd make anything-but-clothes parties so much more fun.

I actually wore a trashbag with duct tape to an anything but clothes party. Perhaps we should have one at Columbia.

The last time I went to an "anything but clothes" party, outfits began falling to pieces once the liquor really got flowing. Which isn't necessarily always a bad thing, though it was pretty awful in that case. :?

Yeah, an anything but clothes party at an institution in which we learn how to define words in any manner that fits our interest can certainly take life in interesting (and possibly disturbing directions), that said we'll all need info to hold over each other once we become big important muckity mucks so why the heck not?

This is the kind of thinking that gave us 8 years of GWB!

Yes, but it also gave us every Kennedy we've ever had and WJC, I think it's just political tradition. BTW aside from just a meet up if any NYC folk ever feel like going out to CitiField to catch a Mets game I am pretty much always game.

And here I thought you seemed likable. In all seriousness though I'd be up for games at either, ball games are almost always good fun.
