During the application sessions for current students, they said they really only cared about names. Specifically when asked, they said people should talk about personal experiences in the PS that they should know about even if it outed the person.

Yeah Mon the 22nd, they have a bunch of dates that don't match up without the correct day of the week all over that site :lol:


Whelp, looks like they're reading this -- date's fixed and the rsvp works!

Also, I am happy to report that, in case anyone was wondering, "Dominick's" is a restaurant, not a grocery store.

(P.S., Dean Z., marry me?)


It's more of a bar that serves food. Get the Sangria, it's what they're known for.

Does anyone know what the moot court situation is for transfers? I've done a cursory search and haven't been able to find anything.

Anyone have an idea about what level of dress we should be in for the Dominicks/EIW Orientation thing? I don't want to be the only one showing up in a ballgown.


But for cereal, level of dress?

Yeah, from the looks of it, it's just a college town bar/restaurant. I'll be wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

It's informal and relaxed. That's why its the default law/business school hangout.

What do you mean by "moot court situation"? You just have to find a partner and sign up before the deadline, which I believe is some time in October. The school will create a transfer email group if it hasn't done so already, which you can use to solicit partners from within the transfer class. Otherwise, you can just do what everyone else does and either ask people you meet in classes or send out desperate school-wide emails to see if anyone is still looking for a partner within a few days of the deadline. The only disadvantage transfers face with respect to moot court is that they don't have as much time to form strong friendship-based ties with potential partners. This shouldn't concern you because many, if not most, of the transfer-free (AKA "pureblood") teams are formed by mere acquaintances who have reached out to one another due to a mutual fear of being ALONE.
