I really want my schedule sometime soon. I would prefer to be able to shop around for the best price on books rather than simply buying them across the street.

Is it that noticeable this is my first time paying for my own school? LoL

Welcome. Seems like a lot of us are going to be moving in about then; coincidentally, that's when the awesomeness will begin in full.

Cool. I'll be moving *down* around the 15th...giving a week to find a place before orientation. I hope I'm not cutting it too close.

I am sad I will miss the Wednesday meetup by a day--does anyone want to have dinner on Thursday? We'll be in town Thursday and Friday, and maybe Saturday...not leaving till we sign a lease, dammit.

On Freshlaw, the Dean of Admissions posted this:

Section assignments are not due to be released until Thursday, August 5, 2010. Your assignments will include, course, instructor's name, section, small group as well as society information. Section assignment information will be accessible via your account status.


Hopefully that should give us all enough time to do some discount book shopping!

I'm missing it by one day, too. :-( I'm up for dinner/coffee/etc anytime after I get in.

I'm hoping to invite all y'all over in a week or so...once I get my place put together.

Hi all! I was wondering if I could join you guys on Wednesday? I've been here since July 1 and I don't know anyone here! It'd be nice to meet some of my future classmates! :D

Hey everybody! Generally I work on Wednesdays so no happy hour for me :( Anyone down for meeting up next Monday or Tuesday?

It's going to be so strange when I don't have a full-time job anymore...my last day of work before the semester is August 9. (Though, I suppose, LS does count as a full-time job!)

I can make Wednesday and maybe Thursday depending on the time (between 6-8).

What's "society information"?

Should I know this already?

Damn! Classes haven't even started and I'm already behind. ;)

Thanks, but I wasn't really asking about the 'information' part. I kinda figured that "society information" would be about what society we belong to. I was wondering more about what these societies are all about. What is involved in being a member of these things? What do they do? What do we do as members?

My understanding is that they are designed as a way to break up the size of UT and encourage us to get to know one another and to provide an upperclassman for anything we need as well. That is just my guess though -any 2L's available to answer?

BTW, I found the answer to my question. If anyone else was puzzled, here it is:


http://www.utexas.edu/law/depts/admissi ... eties.html

The Society Program was initiated in 2004 to build a sense of community within the Law School and to allow students to better interact with faculty in small groups.

There are eight societies in all, with 100 students in each society (50 from each class). Each society has a faculty advisor and a student program coordinator who plan activities for their groups. The activities vary depending on the faculty adviser and the interests of the students, but every society has social, academic/professional, and public service activities. The 1st-year members of each society are split into two mentor groups of 25 apiece. Each mentor group is headed by an upper-class law student mentor, who serves as advisor and counselor throughout the entire year. The mentors also welcome incoming first year law students during the summer before law school begins and host get-togethers prior to Orientation.

The societies are named for individuals closely associated with the Law School, such as Gloria Bradford, the first African American female to graduate from UT Law, Carlos Cadena, a 1940 graduate who was a respected judge and civil rights crusader, and Leon Green, a 1915 graduate who was one of the Twentieth Century's most important torts scholars
