Hating HLS email / MyPlan, btw. :evil:

There was an e-mail sent out this morning saying: "HLS will be conducting emergency maintenance on the Student Information System today, August 24th, beginning immediately. Access to MyPlan will be restricted."


I should have mentioned that I got this email, but I've still been unable to access isites on days when they weren't doing MyPlan maintenance. Oh well, I guess I'll wait and see if it gets fixed in the next couple days.

It was an unbearable 104 degrees in San Jose today. I am kind of looking forward to rain and fog when I get to Cambridge in the morning. Perverse, right?

Boston isn't really known for its nice weather, but no, it isn't always so bad. The rain was much needed, though.

so to those who didn't make the meet up last night, you guys missed out!

So you don't feel too left out, I'll give you a rundown of what happened:

We had a total of 6 HLS 1L's and 3 SO's. The TLS names that were there are:

Myself
JustBlueMyself
Jasper
TheDan
GeePee

And the last person, I didn't catch his TLS name. He might have been a spy from the Yale thread...

Anyways, I thought every person seemed genuinely nice (I'm not sure about myself though. I hope I at least seemed like I was trying to be nice :) ). If these people are any indication of what the general population at HLS is like, I think we are in for a fantastic 3 years and a chance to build some lifelong friendships.

To those who missed out, you are already way behind when it comes to a social life at HLS, but I think if you work hard you should be able to catch up :P .

I look forward to meeting the other 554 of you on Friday.

Damn, sorry I missed that too. Last minute obligations and the like, you know...

As for Friday, it looks like it's going to be pretty low key. I hope not to have to bring my laptop at least...

actually timbuk, we might have to bring some materials -- looking through my emails, we got orientation materials for the section meetings on friday and monday; it's the 3 pages on 2 separate cases

not sure what they exactly mean by 'prepare' the material lol, but sounds like it's some class discussion

yeah me too; the email's wording, however, suggests it is for both days

edit: bah, but the wording in Manning's email suggests otherwise haha -- school bureaucracies!

Yes, you can use the Admin E&E for Leg Reg.

Second this. Everyone was really personable; I had a great time.

On the other hand I am not looking forward to the excessive amount of Civ Pro reading that I'm about to tackle.

Ha, you're right. First e-mail implies Monday, second implies Friday. Fortunately it's just three pages.

It is at:
1667 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA

My name is Adam, my cell # is 617 233 8797. I will be there at 8:00 with my wife ( I am 27 and she is 26, sometimes I think when I say that I am married it makes it seem like I am 40 :) ) I will attempt to get a table for 10 under the name Adam. If for whatever reason, the place is full we will wander somewhere else so shoot me a text or a phone call and I can let you know where we went.
Any and all are welcome.


I will see you guys tonight!


I was the Cambridge Commons last night (got in Tuesday but was without internet for a day) and was trying to find some Canadians, but there was only one other person in the entire place full of 50 or 1Ls. So far I only know of 3 Canadians in the entire 1L class. Found absolutely NO section 2'ers out of the 30 or so people I talked to last night.

I did meet up with 1 or 2 fellow TLSers though. Good times! Anyone else heading to the HLC party after orientation on Friday night? I figure that if we're going to party, it might as well be before law school drowns us in readings, right? :lol:

Ach - also sorry I missed the night out. Oh well. Tomorrow should be an adventure, though! And in a throwback to the weather discussion, looks like it will be gorgeous/hot for the next several days...

Just moved in--- I wish I could have gone to one of the meetups. Guess I'll have to meet you all some other time.

Is there a consensus on whether or not we should bring any materials to orientation friday and monday (section 1)? It wouldn't be hard to bring my laptop, I just don't want to be the only one haha.

Also, what are you all going to wear tomorrow? It looks like it's going to pretty hot, so I'm hoping a polo and shorts won't make me underdressed.

a consensus has been reached on clothing; polo + shorts are fine (unless you're in the section where there's a dinner at the prof's house on one of the later days? then semi-casual for that dinner)

for section 1, what materials to bring friday and monday...i think it is safe to say monday we WILL be discussing the 3 pages of reading lol, so bring your backpack or laptop or whatnot then...friday, no idea :S tbh, im still waiting on a definite answer to this question as well

ill prob just end up printing the few pages and pocketing it, along w/ a pencil/pen -- dont feel like carrying a backpack around on friday orientation lol

Not an official event -- just an impromptu gathering.
