You're not running off w/that title yet Jazz: 6', 140 lbs. And i've probably lost a few pounds of water since moving here. We'll have to buff up together.

Damn, that's pretty skinny, but at least you got some height going for you. I got carded for a beer today, and I'm 32!

Yeah, the height helps w/deception (depending on the attire). But if I didn't have a beard, I would probably still look like I'm 20 (who somehow has 3 girls). I seriously do want to hit the gym somewhat regularly, for the energy/mental boost more than anything. And if I get huge along the way, I'll take it.

I'm pleasantly surprised by all this gym-talk. Any 3C's planning on hitting up the gym? Or at least anyone going after 3:07pm? I'm not a large guy, but I've been trying at a consistent work-out schedule since sophomore year of high school...

Hahahaha. I have the opposite problem as you two. I'm 5'4" and 180 pounds. Granted, I don't necessarily look like it but yah... I have friends who are like half my weight and they definitely CANNOT pick me up.

I'm a 3C planning on going to the gym everyday after class (or maybe in our ridiculous 3 1/2 hour break on Thursdays) but as I'm female, I'm not too interested in bulking up. My main goal is to stay sane and, if possible, to avoid gaining the 1L 30 lbs or whatever it is in law school. Yikes.

Haha works for me. I like a good head of broccoli. Plus, my grocery bill would be awesome on that diet.

Just a heads up...I went to the Co-op today and bought my casebooks, and there are still a bunch of used, cheaper casebooks for the 1L classes. I saved a total of $80 over the new co-op/amazon prices for my 3 casebooks. You all better get over there quick and get yours before they get snapped up.

I'll join you! We can get donuts before class. :lol:


I love the occasional donut. But I like mine fresh and warm--so much so that it virtually melts in my mouth. Are there any awesome donut shops in Austin? In December, after my final exams, I'd like to celebrate with an absofrickinawesome apple fritter.

I got mine today too. I probably saw you there (around noon). Anyway, they do still have a great selection of clean used books. I got my criminal law book used without so much a a stray pencil mark, but I looked through about 30 con law books before I got a decent one.


If you were the guy in Section 1A then yah that was me. I also had a harder time finding a good used ConLaw book, and there were only about a dozen used copies left, so I'm glad I went.

I saw a guy last year who had bought a student ticket from his friend, had a student ID, and didn't get in. They check to see if the name on the ticket matches your student ID. If you want to sell or give tickets to another student, you have to log on to the ticket website and transfer them over to that student. That way it'll have their name on them.


Do they do that for the OU game in Dallas? I'm thinking about paying the extra $95 for that game, but I wouldn't be able to go... is it possible to sell that ticket? What about selling to a non-student? Is there even a student section up there at the stadium in Dallas?

It's just a normal ticket, no different than any other available to the public. you should be able to get nearly $500 for it this year. #2v#3 with a good chance of the winner playing for it all in Jan

Does anybody know of a good (cheap) place to get groceries in Austin? I was thinking Wal-mart (I'm not a food snob) but figured one of the locals might know of something better. I love to cook but hate to pay.

HEB. I think the closest one to campus is Hancock Center, and it's really nice and cheap.

Where do you live? There is an HEB on Red River right around 43rd or so.

Also, I bought some groceries at Central Market two days ago. I figured the prices would be outrageous, but they were basically on par with what I used to pay at Albertson's or Wal-Mart. The ground sirloin is about $5.50/pound. I never found ground sirloin much cheaper at the "discount" stores.

HEB is the standard Texas grocery store that you can't go 10 feet without tripping over, and they are definitely one of the best, cheapest mainstream grocery stores in the country.

For those who want high quality organic, local, food without suffering the outrageous prices and elitism of Whole Foods, the recently renovated and upgraded Wheatsville Food Co-op half a mile north of UT on Guadalupe Street offers very good food at reasonable prices. Their produce is especially good. Membership is not required, but members ($15/year) receive all the monthly sale prices and quarterly 10% off appreciation coupons.

Did everyone buy their books from Co-op east? I only found one book for my section (3C), although I saw that there were plenty of books for section 2... Is the other Co-op just better stocked or what?

I went to the Co-op across the street from the law school today, and I am extremely disappointed. They only had ONE of the books I needed. To be fair, they did have a stack of used Torts books, but out of the 30 books on the floor, not a single one was usable. They all had major writing/highlighting or actual damage to the book. The Torts book was $133 new and $99 used. What a crock of shit. I'm going to save $34 on a book that is completely jacked up and that I need to use every day for the entire semester? And they didn't have a single new copy of the Torts book. Two of my professors haven't even announced what books we'll need. This really leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I'm kind of regretting not making a harder push for Northwestern. *Sigh*

Don't become despondent so fast, Jazz. I'm in your section, yet I'm not worried. At every law school some students re-sell marked up books. Others refuse to re-sell, lending their books instead. (That's how I got my books for Torts and Civ Pro.) Professors wait until the last minute to submit book lists from time to time. I doubt this is unique to UT Law. Do you know what the new Yalies are dealing with? :lol: Do you know how badly Columbia tried to screw over my friend's housing situation? Shyt happens everywhere.
