I need to go to an AA meeting. law school=made me a raging drinker. Wooooooooooooo law skooooool.


Ever wonder how many beers is too many when you have to: first go to a siblings prom pictures and then return to a family reunion? Answer is, if you haven't hit double digits, you're definitely fine.


Actually FYI i was just kidding. Now that I think of it... I shouldn't have made that comment! But, in all seriousness, my drinking has gone UP compared to drinking a glass of wine once a month when I was working :)

Awesome, can't wait for football season. Incidentally, are tickets relatively easy (and by this I mean cheap) to get?

All regular season tickets are free. All sports except basketball (lottery system where demand rarely exceeds supply), you just walk up to the student gate and show your student ID to get in.

Officially stoked! And are guest tickets reasonable too - looks like I have to get a UVA ID before I can log into Shots and check it out?

Very few basketball games are in a full-capacity situation. During winter break in 09-10, after the first big snowstorm, I got the first zone/group (and a first row seat) with only 2 lottery points (default point + 1 Hoo Crew game attendance point).

Didn't realize BBall was so big at UVA. Coming out of San Diego, it's gotta be sweet 16 or bust for the Hoos to make me happy this season :P I was always in the nosebleeds for SDSU games. It was great, but I gotta say that front row would be mind blowing. Really cool of them to just give them to you.

So if I wanted to bring the wifey along with me they give that ticket up for free too huh? And it's the lottery system that will figure out if I can get extra group tickets for BBall? Interesting.

I don't think guest tickets are free and are only available if there are extra tickets available. I think they might have a special program for spouses of students but you'd have to investigate that.

Entry times are determined essentially by how many games you've attended previously. You get points for attending games and people with more points enter earlier. When you get your ticket, you're assigned to a group. Group 1 is allowed enter 90 minutes before the game and a new group is allowed in every 5 minutes after that until Group 10 at 45 minutes before the game. That does not mean you must enter at that time, it just means that that's the earliest you can enter as a way of rewarding devoted fans with better seats. Even the upper bowl seats are pretty good so as long as you have a ticket, you get a decent view. Note: this only applies to basketball games. All other sports you just walk in whenever with your student ID.

Just wanted you all to know that you've given me some hope that I will see more than just then inside of the library as a poor law student this fall. Seriously.

UVA Law is a fun place to be outside of mid-November to mid-December and mid-April to mid-May (and all time spent on LRW). If you're in the library all the time, you're overworking and underrelaxing.

The IT website that tells you how to set up an email also says that you get a lawweb id in mid June they email it to your virginia.edu email so make sure to watch that.
Hopefully that helps! I have been wanting one too....

Agree with Gladiator's response to this. Most people at this school understand the importance of mental (and physical) health. There is plenty to do during the semester and there are always more than enough law students looking for fun things to do when they finish their work. Even during exams you will find people a lot more relaxed than expected (at least that was my experience, which just hammered home the fact that I made the right choice in schools)

Gladiator- he insists you are Hector reborn. Or was it Hercules? Why doesn't the hero reveal himself and tell us all your real name. You do have a name?
