Correct. The Tuesday night orientation is mandatory. There will be a number of other events - including those with libations :) - throughout the week that you should definitely attend!

We are not going to be expected to be outside during orientation? Not being from a humid climate along with other issues is making it hard for me to venture very far in this kind of climate.

Fear not. Orientation will be held indoors.

Didn't get PDTC yet.

Ah. I hear you. I heard they sent out some emails today regarding that and registering.

Anyways, transfers -- OCI results are up if you want to go see.

I have officially 100% struck out at OCI. It's like a superpower. A really sucky superpower.

Also, the dean is apparently still reviewing my transcript to see how many credits to allocate me. I think (hope) that's just GW running behind schedule rather than problem that has popped up.

They're probably running behind on everyone's PDTC

Same here. PDTC late last night. Got 3 interviews thru OCI and 2 via application to jobs thru the jobs section of Symplicity. Much better than I thought I would.

Not a transfer, but GW requires two 3-credit semesters of Civ Pro for 1Ls, and I remember there being several transfers/LLMs in my Civ Pro II class. So my guess is you're not the only one.

It's a requirement you have to fulfill through a research paper via a class, independent study or law journal

Oh. A seminar class should cover that, then, I guess.
