I just got offered a job as a TA if I stay at UT. That would be too hard to do while going to law school, right?

Just put down my deposit! From NY and don't know a soul in Texas or the surrounding areas, nor have I ever been down south really before the OMV. Should be interesting!

Any New Yorker's here? Is there some sort of roommate matching board UT provides? Looking forward to meeting everyone in a few months!

Technically, we're not allowed to be employed as a 1L. OTOH, I had an offer at one school that included GA for 5 hours a week first year. So I don't really know.

(Now that I read this, this strikes me as a remarkably unhelpful post.)

but I want to prove that I'm super duper attorney material. Attorneys use lots of words to convey as little as possible, right?

Later. Probably around the time of the 'letter of intent.'

I uploaded my usual profile pic, but at some point I'm planning on replacing it with something halfway professional (read: not tipsy) looking.

Haha yes that is preferable, as those pictures are what your professors will print up before class starts to learn your name and be able to call you out in class. Your file will always be associated with that picture. I've learned this as a wide-eyed freshman lol and you should see the picture that still follows me around.

That's what I figured, although I wonder why they wouldn't use the one from your student ID. I haven't gotten a haircut in almost a year, so I'll hold off on taking any picture that I'll have to live with until 2013.

Well then obviously take one that looks nothing like you and you will avoid being called on.

I think they do, at least they did for undergrad. Maybe I am mistaken and they use it for something else.

Haha how big of a douche move would it be to upload a Duke Law picture as my headshot? Or my other Larry David avatar?

one of my professors has commented that these photos are somewhat useful in 1L, but by 3L, the pictures are completely worthless, as the young, idealistic, nubile faces have degraded into depressed, stressed, overweight shadows of their former selves :mrgreen:

Fellow NY'er completely unfamiliar with the land of Texas. I'll actually be visiting next weekend though. Are you in school in the city?

What are the odds that Obama will nominate the 1 lady from Texas for Supreme Court by the end of the day? That would swing me one way.

Very doubtful IMO. He'd rather appoint a more conservative person who is big on executive power - IE Kagen.

would be awesome if he appointed judge wood, but i think she's too old to get the nod.
