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...
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.
