It wasn't an official thing. It was a bunch of us sitting around at the barbeque and saying, hmm, it's not 7 pm yet, and a beer would be nice, let's go get a beer. More and more FLS students somehow materialized at the same bar as the evening went on.

Off to buy alcohol; see you guys tonight! Everyone at Fordham is invited, and so are those CLS, NYU, Cardozo, and BLS kids I personally know to be awesome. At least one HLS 1L is still in town, and he'll be here too, along with my friends from the fashion world, and L---, an MSW student at our school.

im bringing 4 or 5 people with me:) non of them law students, but two Columbia grad students and one from FIT, with whom you OperaSoprano might have something in common :))

See you tonight!

So my legal writing & research class hasn't showed up on that first assignment website. Anyone else have this problem?

Yay, awesome! You know, I found out that another FIT student got into Fordham two years ago. I would give anything to find that person, if he or she actually attended, but I don't know how I could go about getting that information from the school.

I haven't figured out if I'm in A or B and there's no section 5 on that link through the ASW :(

On another note, I'm bringing a friend tonight! She's not a law student, but she's good times. Looking forward to it!

What does your detailed schedule say? Are you still having legal writing on Thursday afternoon? I got shafted to Monday AM. Boo.

I got bumped to Monday at 11 too. Double boo. But still, nothing on that site. I emailed the technology help desk about this but they haven't gotten back to me.

Looking at the ones that are up on the registrar's website, it seems they're first assignments for legal research next next week... I'm guessing no first assignments for Monday? (please please please please.... :? )

Legal Writing & Research sections are up: --LinkRemoved--

I received an email (on my law account) from Prof. Neustadt letting me know that I'm in Section 5A. I would wager that the rest of you have received/will be receiving this email too.

Still no news about what is or isn't due on Monday...

EDIT: Looks like the sections have been split by alphabetical order.

The closest subway to Shake Shack is at Central Park West and 72nd and it's a B/C stop, incidentally.

I'm doing the same-sex marriage advocacy thing, which sounds like it'll be petitioning in the Bronx. I still sort of wish I was doing the legal observer thing, but moral commitment to a pre-existing pet issue, chance to meet people in OUTLaws, blah blah.

Also, yes on BBQ (assuming they have vegetarian options that are not mushroom options, 'shroom burger notwithstanding), no on bus tour.

Edit: Loan status - it turns out the Rose Hill campus MAILED me a letter (no phone call, no email) saying they need a copy of my Social Security card, presumably because of a name change issue that I told the Law School Financial Aid office about MONTHS AGO, and faxed them copies of every piece of documentation I own. About ready to kill somebody, aye.


I was too tired to come to the thing last night too :( I wanted to though.

I'll try to make it to Magnolia today, but I might be late. We shall see!

Ninja edit: If any of you want to say "hi" to me, I'm the girl with the super tattoo'd back. I'm also always down for drinks.

Good luck on the final to all today! I hear it's impossible to fail, though.


ohhhh i saw your tattoo (or you)
and i was thinking thats a good place to get a tattoo for a lawyer, i was so hesitant getting a tattoo and i got a small one on my back and two on my inner ankles, which im thinking of hiding with band aids in case i interview with conservative lawfirms.
i dont even know if theyd care but in case they do...


Yeah, I worked at a law firm for 2 years prior now. Back is a good, hideable place. Anytime I wear like, a sweater or a blazer or something it's fully covered. Honestly, anywhere but the hands, neck or face can be covered pretty easily by pants and a jacket.
