T: 8:30 - 9:30, 10-11, 2:10 - 3:30

R: 8:30 - 9:30, 10 - 11:20, 2:10 - 3:30, 3:40 - 4:40
F: 2:10 - 3:30

This will obviously vary between section. Doesnt seem to bad. Tuesdays and Fridays will be nice for section A. 8:30am every day sucks (torts) also, Thursday blows mainly cause thats when they bring the keg out at noon(ish).


Keg depends totally on the 1L SBA rep in charge of getting it, but it's rarely there before 3. There's not usually a big crowd there until 3:30 and then again at 5 (when classes get out). It was out at noon maybe once or twice all year.


Ohh, ASW it was out there between noon-1pm (or so). Guess I got lucky haha

PROTIP: sit in the back of your Thursday afternoon class. Bring beer from keg.

Hey, Section B only has one class on Fridays and it's not until 3:40... Sections A and D don't meet until 2:10. You can cross your fingers for one of those three!


Haha I will start praying. I find it weird that we dont get our schedule until the 17th and start orientation on the 20th


Well, it's a way for them to kind of force our hand and have us buy textbooks at the bookstore. Otherwise you'd have to have Amazon Prime (or pay $$$$$$ for shipping) in order to get assignments read for the first day. To me, that seems like the only plausible reason they'd keep section/schedule info from us until the last minute. I mean, you know that they have to have divided us up before then


Amazon Prime for students is half price ($39/year), which I think is worth it. Regardless, there are plenty of ways around bookstore books:

1) PILA auction. They'll tell you about this at orientation. If you don't care about highlighting/writing, you'll save a ton. If you do, then go asap b/c there won't be many lightly used books. Also, obviously no new editions.

2) Just come on TLS and ask about individual teachers. Assuming profs don't change books year to year (which I would assume is rare other than updated editions), just ask which CivPro book Nelson uses or which Torts book Abraham uses. For Crim, I'm pretty sure most of them use the one Bonnie, Coughlin, and Jeffries all co-authored. Anyway, ask on here, and you can just go online and buy it ahead of time.

3) Just buy from the bookstore, go home, and buy the same one online. You can return them to the bookstore for like two weeks. Just be careful not to write in them or break the spine, and you can return them once the new ones come in.

I didn't use TLS last year, but between #1 and #3, I saved a ton. I probably spent $600-700 total on books all year.

Went to her website, she has only raised 220 bucks. Yeah, not worth it.

I needed something to do, so I've put together a list of all the section breakdowns.

Anyone else ordering a computer through the Cav Computers program? For the law school bundle, orders for home delivery are due July 8 and orders for delivery-by-orientation are due July 22. Anyone know if that July 22 deadline is applicable if we order through the undergraduate options? It's too bad the only law school Mac is the 13 incher.

There has been a fair amount of chatter on the other board re: laptops (--LinkRemoved--). The tl;dr version of those threads is that you should maximize battery life, minimize weight and that your laptop won't make you or break you in law school.

I thought the CAV options were a little expensive, and not exactly what I wanted. I ended up using a Lenovo student discount (http://shop.lenovo.com/us/portals/students). I like Lenovo because their business-grade laptops (T, X & W) are very well built, which is good because I tend to break things with my meat hook-like hands.

Dell also has some good business grade laptops and a student discount. And if you are set on a mac, you can also get a Macbook or Air from apple with a student discount. I think it is about $100 off.

I don't immediately see any sections that count as being "Sections of Death." § D looks pretty fantastic, except for Friday class not ending until 16:40.

^Section of Death is a soccer term that means a pairing of disproportionately strong teams in one pod. The equivalent here is a section loaded with good professors, so it is actually a good thing law school wise

Ah, so § D is the Section of Death? It's a mighty section. As has probably been mentioned, Nelson's classes demand strong note taking skills, as he throws a huge amount of material out per class period. Moran was a fine LRW professor. I personally liked Barzun. Didn't have Coughlin or Geis, but I've had plenty of conversations with Coughlin. She's a rockstar

Some things have come up and I am mostly likely going to have to defer for a year. I will know within a week, but I will be looking for someone to take over my half of a 2 br in Ivy in one of the closest buildings to the law school. PM me if interested.

I told my friends and family that I was deferring to gain work experience and save up some money, but truth me told I just haven't been happy with my fielding lately and thought I'd take a year to work on it.

I'd be lying if I said I hadn't hit the batting cages a couple times.
