We got a T-shirt, car decal, some sort of lapel pin, and a Starbucks gift card for our service event. Yay for free stuff! :D


You win ^^

We got the pin, too -- some 150 years pin? Regarding the t-shirts, did ya'll get the right sizes? We had one L, some M, and a bunch of S. The dudes were in trouble with fitting into the shirts.

Yeah, the 150 years pin. I guess all the L got sent to our event. I wanted a M, but the lady organizing the event insisted that a L would be better. She said the shirt would shrink in the wash, so hopefully it does. It is somewhat big on me right now, but if it shrunk a bit it would be wearable.

And is it an MLaw decal? Or just an M? Pics or it didn't happen :D

It's an MLaw decal. I would take a picture of it and post it, but I'm at work. What sucks is I can't even use it. Can't put it on my car, because I haven't told anyone at work about law school. And when we move, we will only have my wife's car, and she doesn't want it on her car :cry:

Lol. I know I shouldn't be hanging around this thread but I'm still kind of in mourning about not being able to come to Mich.

When I was at ASW I was down in the Law School Student Senate offices and they had a bunch of different car stickers. It looks like they are a good source for MLaw gear as well.

Sorry, I missed that. Surely someone will be visiting in the near future and would be willing to pick up and mail orders for people?

Beat me to posting. I'd really like to do it, it sounds interesting and a great way to meet people before classes start. I'll be submitting an app, no idea how competitive it is.

Ok, deposited today. What is MAPS? Will I miss it if I'm out of the country until the end of July?

MAP is the Michigan Access Program, which is basically a pre-orientation program that many of us did and highly recommend. Think of it as 4-5 days where you get put up in a fairly nice hotel and get to meet about 40 students early and spend the week doing basic (and incredibly easy/non-stressful) law school "prep" type of stuff (another mock class, team-building exercises, and you get to try your hand at a fun little oral argument), all the while going out drinking with them every night. If I recall correctly, they send out the information after the first deposits so everybody gets it about the same time. Sign up early, since a lot of people were waitlisted for the program since it can only take so many people.

Sent in my App. for MAP today, since I couldn't do an ASW or visit the campus. Tried to make myself sound diverse and interested in social justice. We'll see.

Considering people sent their apps in minutes after receiving it, I'm going to venture a guess and say it’s pretty competitive.

I wouldn't consider us TLS'ers a representative sample. I, for one, wouldn't have even thought about applying if people on the site hadn't said do it and do it early. In fact, while I was doing it, I didn't necessarily think that it would be super competetive, although I would imagine URM's are pretty much guaranteed spots.
