Same thing. They probably didn't actually send it?


Hmmm, maybe I should email them to see what it said?

Huh...mine says that too, but I didn't recieve an email either. If its anything like the previous emails, it probably just showcases some particular aspect that they think sets them apart.

Looks like we got some of your snow down here in East Texas, where it never snows and sticks! Time to light up the fire and read a book! Ah who am I kidding, I don't have a fireplace. I'm going back to bed.

Some snow? It was the most amount of snow I've seen in my lifetime here! I think it broke the record for most snowfall too!

Anyone know when the deadline to register for ASW is? Just found out I have to work through the April one, so I may be joining the March group.

Well, it's relatively easy to find me. If someone's screenname is "aznflyingpanda", I think it would be a bit more difficult to pinpoint them on the group. :lol:

I got this with a knife and chopper gunner once. Happy times!

I guess since I've paid my g to UVA and sealed the deal, I should trade in my UT avatar picture for something UVA related like other posters have. So here it is.

The picture is from the cover of the Fall 2009 edition of The University of Virginia, illustrated by Jen Sorensen. If you wanna find out more about her and her comics, head over to http://www.slowpokecomics.com.

There.

(If you want good burgers, Boylan Heights is like, fifteen steps up the sidewalk from there.)

Some questions for the UVA 1Ls that populate this forum:

What is your favorite part of going to UVA?

Least favorite?

After the first semester how do you feel about your decision of where to attend school?

Anything different than you expected?


Thanks guys, just curious to hear some opinions.

Thanks guys, just curious to hear some opinions.

Favorite part: Relaxed cordial atmosphere. Everyone is so friendly toward one another, and many of us are quite helpful. It goes way against the stereotype of the hypercompetitive law school. (Folks are still competitive, don't get me wrong, they just aren't doing it in ways that take it out on each other!)

Least favorite part: This is "the South" and we've still managed to get 60 inches of snow this winter. Fuck this, if I wanted this I could've gone to Cornell. Plus the fact that it's such a rural and spread out environment means no subway system like you'd have in NYC or Philly or Chicago, where even though it's snowing and not safe to drive you still have a way to go get around.

In all seriousness, I miss some of the perks of living in a more urban environment in general.

After the first semester: So glad I came here. I'm interested in public interest work and the Public Service Center (which is career services for PI folks) has been amazing so far. The school is very good at leveraging its alumni connections to open doors for current students. Plus I've really loved most of my professors and classes.

Anything different than expected? I guess the stress. I don't mean that I wasn't expecting stress, just that I was expecting a different kind. I worked a highly stressful job before I came here so I thought I was used to stress, but I wasn't used to the kind of stress that a curved grading environment puts on you. By the time finals start you'll be going crazy... But then it'll be over and you'll be glad you made it through that first semester.

Oh, and waiting so goddamn long for grades to come out, what's up with that?! But like the stress thing that's going to be pretty universal at most law schools, profs apparently take their time grading and getting grades back to you. Whee.

That's what I got so far. I'm looking forward to all the snow melting off because I love it here when I'm not buried in white death. They do a good job keeping the sidewalks clear, but then as the snow piled up on either side melts into water, it runs onto the sidewalks and then refreezes at night in spots, creating lovely ice patches for you to go kill yourself on... Whee.

Did I mention I hate the snow?

Supposedly one of my classmates climbed that mountain and planted an American flag on the top. I have yet to go see if this is true or not.
