is going to kill me.


I'm hoping for either Law Review or the Journal of Law and Policy. Exams end on the 11th for 1Ls and the write-on competition starts that night, and ends on the 28th. We have almost 2.5 weeks to do it, which is quite long compared to a lot of schools.

The only thing that 1Ls are required to do is the oral argument as part of their Legal Writing class. I wasn't looking too forward to it, but it ended up being fun and not as bad as I thought. If you do the Moot Court competition, you use your brief and oral argument from Legal Writing for it. Out of the approximately 160 1Ls, about 100 competed in the competition. I wasn't one of them since I didn't have any interest in doing Moot Court. It's a bit intimidating, but it's just you, your opponent, your professor, and one or two TA's (2L or 3L students). I'll actually be a TA next year for section 2A, so I look forward to working with some of you!

Considering it. I'm having a difficult time trying to decide between committing to Wake or retaking.

Hey guys!

So a friend of mine is planning on attending Wake this fall with no money but plans on transfering to UNC after 1l to get instate tuition where it would be significantly cheaper since she is from NC but got waitlisted at UNC. She doesnt expect to get off and doesnt want to retake and reapply due to family reasons. Any thoughts? I really dont know what to tell her.

You probably want to direct her to this: http://www.law.unc.edu/admissions/apply ... fault.aspx

UNC's Website wrote:As a result of collaborative conversations with deans of other North Carolina law schools, the University of North Carolina School of Law will no longer accept transfer applications from students currently enrolled at law schools in North Carolina -- even from students who are academically qualified -- unless they present a compelling case for enrollment at UNC. Better job opportunities, better course selection or lower tuition are not viewed as compelling reasons.

That's interesting. It's weird that they mention "collaborative conversations with deans of other North Carolina law schools," yet they appear to be the only school with a policy like that. Neither Duke or Wake have anything similar on their websites.

Where is everyone living? I just put my deposit down for my apartment, but I am still going to come to House Hunt to meet people being that I live in Charlotte. Is there a certain hotel where most people stya or is it pretty much anywhere?

After spending my morning calling around to apartments, I finally found that Crowne Oaks has some apartments available for those interested. Most other places had waiting lists or won't accepting new applicants at all. Just an fyi for those still searching for apartments.

I am staying at the Courtyard by campus but thats only because WF has a discount there so it costs 89 dollars a night. Not the best price, but no more expensive than anywhere else and I figure there will be other students there so it will be easier to meet people.

Edit: Its also right next to like 4 bars, which is a primary concern for me when choosing a hotel.

Same here. I live in Greensboro, so once we get the schedule I'll just come over for the baseball game and bars.

That's cause duke and wake are private institutions and don't give instate discounts. Duke and wake don't want to lose students, and unc doesn't want to give instate tuition.

Also, my wife is going out the week before HH to find a place.

It seems that most people (on this board at least) have housing locked up. Are you guys going to visit and tour the complex you chose while your down there or sign the lease? Or literally just going to game and bars?

My goal is to take out leases at everywhere in Wake, and then sublease them out, illegally, to you all for ridiculous rates. I shall be the slum lord of WS! This is why my Mrs. is going out in advance of the HH.

Jokes on you, Demmitt, I already have leases on every apartment in WS. You will be subleasing from me and then will be sub-subleasing to everyone else.

Yeah, I have pretty much settled on Wake. Barring acceptance off the waitlist and a scholarship from Vandy... In other words, yes, I have settled on Wake.

That image won't load on my phone. I can only assume it is you cowering in submission.

Ps I will soon be taking applications for people who want to live in a closet.
