Ugh, both my UG's screwed up sending transcripts. In one office the lady found my written request (done and mailed correctly) that has apparently been lying around for three weeks. At my other an online request hadn't gone out two and a half weeks later, even though it said two days to process and send in the confirmation I received. A bit ashamed to have roundly abused staff at both offices but I was in a rage when I got an e-mail from U Chicago about it.

Did anyone else not get theirs in yet and are they worried about it?

When I was applying I had to put in three requests for my UG to send my transcript to Cornell. I actually withdrew from Cornell before my transcripts arrived there.

My UG didn't send my transcripts either.... I'm going to try to deal with it tomorrow.

I'm not too worried about it. What are they going to do? Kick us out of the law school for have transcripts that arrived late? We're all taking the same stuff this quarter, so it's not like we need to register early to get into the really in demand classes!

I also got the email because my UG only mailed my transcript Thursday...because I forgot to request it until Wednesday.

Yes, there are plugs galore in the classrooms and in the library. The only time you'll be running off of batteries is in the Green Lounge (which has a few plugs, but not enough for everyone) and when one of your friends forgets his cord and you have to share one.

Unless you are actively trying to avoid power outlets or flying from Seattle to Miami, you will probably never need battery life greater than 4 hours.

What's the name/link for that craig's list-type directory for law students? I thought I remember seeing someone comment on how great this was (if only to ge bed materials). I will soon be moving in to Regents and would love to pick up some cheap secondhand stuff.

P.s. Can't wait to meet you all!!!

Moving into Regents next week and trying to figure out what to do about furniture. Want to buy a mix of used and new items. For the new items, is it easy to get to places like IKEA and Target via public transportation (not bringing a car)?

For Ikea: Probably not. I think that Ikea is either located in the NW suburbs (Schaumburg) or SW (Bolingbrook) and both locations would be a real pain to get to via public transit. If you decide to rent a moving truck, I would go up to NW suburbs because there is crap load of shopping in that area.

Target: Yes. There is one in the shouth loop on Roosevelt near all the museums.

Getting settled in Hyde Park and really loving it. Would love to meet some people, though. If anyone needs a ride out of Hyde Park to get some stuff for their place, I'd be happy to give them a ride because I need plenty of stuff. Send me a PM.

I'll be going downtown either today or tomorrow. If anyone's interested in meeting up, feel free to pm me. I'd like to meet more of my future classmates.

Two more questions:

1. For those of you who have moved into Regents already, how flexible is service elevator use? I highly doubt I'll be able to get all of my furniture delivered in a 2 hour block.

2. Do you guys know of any sports bars in Hyde Park (or, if not, downtown) that show all of the NFL games?

I just e-mailed Krista asking her about this. When she gets back to me I'll post whatever she says.

Krista seems pretty stressed or at least busy with all the new move-ins. I used the freight elevator as much as I wanted with no problems. They might even be able to rig a regular elevator with wall padding so you might be able to use it as a freight elevator.

As for bars, I know of one from my last visit to HP. But it only had like 1 TV so I doubt it would be good for NFL Sundays (or, better yet, NCAA Saturdays). I'll keep my eyes open though!

Apparently they've already chosen the new Dean. Interesting selection. What are everyone's thoughts?

Nowhere as far as I know. He's just stepping down as Dean.
