o and who provided the brew? lol


I think its sba (like student government) though someone correct me if I'm wrong. Also, the food @ events here is baller. Like wine, cheese, hummus plates, fancy chocolate things, and papa freaking johns. No need to buy groceries just go to all the events they have here.


man sounds like im gonna be lovin it


Its pretty amazing. The people here are the most fun and interesting people i've ever been surrounded by. If you don't love it, there is something terribly wrong with you.

"Regular Decision applicants will likely hear from us starting in January. " From the status checker website...I guess this is good for me if things don't work out with my ED to Penn, then I can still ED to UVA before RD applications are looked at

Yep, every Thursday around 3 or 4, which is perfect because you can migrate straight from the Keg to the Drunk League softball game right across the street. Oh yea, then you have bar review that night.


When you are in the library until 11 PM three days in a row its nice to have a Thursday like this. :D

You dont pick your classes as a 1L do you? and does every 1L take the same classes or at least use the same books?

I know they take the same classes, unsure about the books.

Looks like you choose 2 electives your 2nd semester.

We all take the same 5 classes: Crim-850, CivPro-10, LRW-random, Contracts-210, Torts-340. Though each sections classes meet on different days and are different lengths those are the 1L time blocks.



Some classes use the same books others use different books, its up to the professor.

Yep, its pass/fail. If you are unsure of where you want to go be sure to ask about LRW, because I could not imagine going somewhere with graded LRW, it would make life exponentially more terrible. Pass/Fail its bad enough, graded would just ruin me.

Hmm im very curious about the books. Anyone know for sure?

5 classes. that seems like alot for each being a law school class. Do you try to set a schedule, i know my UG law school just assigns 1L's with a schedule

Talking to 2Ls and 3Ls they only know of 1 person who didn't pass, and that person basically just didn't do the assignments.

Yeah, thank you.

Would you say reading the books for 1L classes over the summer is a helpful idea?

My guide to 0L prep:

1. Get Better at softball. Being good at softball can really help integrate you into the culture.

2. Read Getting to Maybe.

3.?????

4. Profit
