Thanks guys!!! :D


I didnt have any of them, but I heard that Summers terrifies most people. A few people I know really liked him, but most did not at all. I know one of your TAs for Weigold, and your TA is awesome. She said she really liked Weigold too.

I hear Dorf is tough-- but thats just rumor pretty much. And I really know nothing about Wendel.

what about these professors: Rossi, Freed, and Hans?


I posted about Rossi a few posts back. Freed is new this year so no one knows anything yet. I know a couple of her TAs and they are cool. I dont even know who Hans is.

LeahNic wrote:Ok, if you want more tips on professors -- here are my thoughts on the first year profs I had.

Civ Pro (fall) Rossi -- great teacher, terrified me at first but loved him eventually. DONT miss class. Everything he says write down. When you get to the test its simply a matter of transferring what you wrote down. He doesn't like you to ramble about issues that ARENT actually there. I missed 2 days of class and seriously those two days were really important I realized later. He has great stories too. And whoever gets called on the first day-- don't feel too bad-- no one knows what is going on.

I hear Summers is a very technologically-savvy guy who embraces the use of electronics in his teaching.


Would that include the use of the microphones at each seat in room G90 ( I think that's it) during a cold call? :shock:

I've only used those microphones once, and that was for a video conference call during a lawyering class. Otherwise, you just speak up.

I sure hope not! Anyway, my comment was an attempt at sarcasm. The only thing I have heard about Summers so far is from this TLS thread which describes his ban on laptops in the classroom...

Wait!!! I haven't heard that one yet...is that true? Are we really supposed to write out our notes from his lecture? I haven't done that ...well since high school...I think things just got a little more interesting :oops:

Trying to brief these cases for AOP... but my brain feels like it's melting, and Gideon is weird.

eta: oh, but I have cable now (there's no TV here yet, but it's better than the internet access I was using before!)

Anyone get the email from who I assume to be Prof Summers TA. I feel like she was supposed to attach something that is not there, but I could be wrong....

All the stuff she referred to is on blackboard, under Course Documents and Assignments.

Reading's Summers' memo on laptops and his first-year-info thing made me feel like I'm going to like him a lot.

Oh it's happening, come hell or really ridiculously, I'm talking biblical, high water (The chapter house is up on the hill so the water would have to be VERY high indeed).

After the colossal failure that was last weekend, if we can't make it work this saturday, I'm just going to give up on meeting anyone all together.

For anyone who is living in Hughes Hall next year, do you remember if the rooms had overhead lights? I'm trying to remember if they do or not so that I can decide whether or not I should bring some sort of big lamp.

Thanks.

I'm going to miss out again this Saturday...my friend's birthday is Saturday. I might be in Ithaca Thursday though, if anyone is interested in meeting up.

edit: my uncle is probably taking the boat on Thursday, so I don't think that's the best day for a sailing excursion. Next week, for sure.

quick question: anyone know if there is a fitness center of some sort to which we law students have access? i don't seem to be getting any younger, nor my metabolism any faster, so i figure i should try to staunch the bleeding, so to speak.....

also, was up last Friday, and found a place to live up on Dryden ("Now we're building a house!" for all you AD fans out there); also, had dinner at Stella's, and the food was great. i'm moving up on the 23rd, and am looking forward to meeting everyone.

You can buy a membership, I think it's $135, but I don't quite remember. Good for any of the fitness centers.

I just bought it. It's $145 a year, or $90 a semester. If you want access to the bouldering walls (apparently there are two), it's another $30/yr.

I'm kind of annoyed that the Noyes Center (gym closest to me) doesn't open til 7:00 AM during the school year. Doesn't that seem kind of late for a gym?

Section A 4evr!

I've been in town for a month now, and it's so awesome I'm suspicious, even with all the rain--countryside is beautiful, people are friendly, food and drink are good, game animals wander freely through the streets--it's heaven. Even ran into MBW out at Ithaca bakery, because it's a small world here in the magical land of Ithaca.

I'm up for drinks at the Chapter House anytime! Think MattK is in town this week too, if anyone met him at the first ASW.
