I am here too, sitting back in one of the reading rooms near the lounge area. If you want to pop in, together we may seem slightly less ridiculous.

Admission: I knew that we didn't start until 9:30, but my ride could only do 8:00. Lame.

I'm kind of disappointed that no one is posting to TLS during orientation. What kind of law students are you?

I meant during the day at orientation... but this begs the question, why are you posting now?

yesterday was actually pretty full of stuff. if someone wasn't talking to us, we were meeting each other or eating lunch. I'd be surprised if someone was posting during that time because it would mean they were just in a corner nerding out on the interwebz.

today we are doing service projects for half of the day, so probably same deal. I can feel the thread slowly dying.

Yeah, like 2-4 IIRC.

Harry's isn't the favorite spot of the 3Ls either, so I guess we're even, lol

Also, what are people wearing to the alum dinners?

Harry's on Market Street @ 9 PM

My dinner said casual so I'm going with khakis and a collar shirt. IMO, it's better to be overdressed than underdressed.

Cool, I'll do the same, thanks. What's the thing at Harry's, just hanging out at a bar?

Yah, they gave everyone a handout for SBA events for the week yesterday at the morning session.

Sorry for all the gunning in Torts today... had to put nyyankees in his place.

What's everyone's take on orientation? It has been a lot more fun than I'd expected. Everyone seems really nice and our class is pretty cool so far.

And I had sworn off long islands after last Tuesday, but it looks like that will be coming to an end. 2 for 1 LITs? Dangerous...

My impressions:

This school is filled with awesome people. Everyone seems down-to-earth, not stuck up, fairly laid back, and friendly and sociable. And I haven't met such a group of drinking champions since I lived in Wisconsin. So we obviously know how to have fun. It seems like practically everyone I've met so far is the antithesis of the horror-stories you hear about law school classmates: stuck-up, arrogant, douchey, backstabbing, hyper-competitive, etc. Of course, it's still early in the year, and everyone's still on their best behavior because shit hasn't really hit the fan yet.

The other impression scares me a bit. Just from the mock classes today, it's obvious that everyone around me is wicked smart. I'm used to sitting in class and having people raise their hands having little clue as to what they're talking about -- even in grad school. This isn't your average graduate program, though. Probably everyone who spoke today gave good, well-reasoned answers. It almost seems unfair that a school with this much talent has to deal with mandatory curves...but then again, I went to law school to be challenged...not to sit around on easy street.

Nevertheless, I become more and more certain each day that WashU Law School was exactly the right decision for me.

Damn romo, I think he wins.

BTW, nyyankees, as soon as you and one other person accept invites to the fantasy league I can go ahead and schedule the draft online. Since the last section's luncheon ends at 1:45 on Friday, I say we shoot for 2:15 at somewhere near campus.
