For anybody going to the admissions happy hour tonight: business casual I presume?

Are there really going to be available books at the SPFIF booksale? Or is it just all hoping to get lucky to get the one available torts book all of us need? Haha, I'm hoping for the former!

I was thinking...casual. Is there a word for no shorts or flip flops but basically anything else is fine? Business casual to me implies no jeans, and I will definitely be wearing jeans.

This. It's not hosted by a law firm and it's my last Friday of vacation. I'll be casual as well.

how do we get on the listserv?


You automatically get on the listserv for every time someone wants to sell a damn coffee table. You need to be watching carefully for the email to opt in to career emails about jobs. Why is it opt-out from useless nonsense and opt-in for emails about important things? Hell if I know, everyone tells me that's how it should be, so whatever. Welcome to law school, we have diversity of opinions here.

You can manually set the listserv to give you a daily email summary (or several times daily in some cases). This is bad because you miss out on "happening now! free lunch!" emails. I think the tradeoff is well worth it to be able to read my damn email.

God the way those SFPIF boxes were bulging at the end of the spring semester, I'd guess plenty are available. The bookstore has used books too that are more expensive but still cheaper than new. Your problem is more likely to be profs requiring new editions, not available used books. The SFPIF sale is great for supplements.

I'll see some of you guys for the first time tonight at the happy hour. I'll echo the casual look, I'll prob be in a polo and shorts, the same thing I wear every day. Can we bring SO's or is it students only?

Also interested in this question. Considering it said you need a nametag to get in I already told my wife she's probably not coming. But I haven't gotten any official word one way or another.

Thanks! The bookstore only had three of my books used, and I'm worried about the shipping time of buying elsewhere online. Hopefully I'll find them and if not, Amazon Prime to the rescue

I bought the books available from Half.com and got my books delivered from there before the bookstore had the other ones ready for pick-up.

That will be my plan immediately after the SPFIF book sale then. If I seem like I'm scrambling to find books on the first day of classes, I'll have outed myself haha

Just asked the admissions staff about so's at happy hour tonight. They can come after 5:30, and have to pay for their own drinks.

This is the perfect opportunity to show the entire admissions staff what raging alcoholics they've admitted this year :shock:

This happy hour just for those who were at early bid orientation or anyone?
Not sure if I'll be back from dumping my car in the burbs on time or not...but...

I figured. Woulda been there if I could have.
At least I'm moved in to my own place now and won't need to worry about doing a 75-90 minute commute from the 'burbs during orientation.
Plus the Gold Coast was poppin' last night. Gotta be about 10 bars within a block and a half of my place. I chose convenience over bang-for-your buck living conditions, and so far I'm happy with it.
Woke up to a farmers' market around the corner this morning, too. Not sure how long it'll last into fall, but kinda cool none-the-less.

There's one close to school too on Tuesday mornings, in front of the museum of contemporary art. The apple situation in the fall is outstanding.

Just got my CLR reading assignments for this Tuesday/Wednesday and I haven't even bought my books yet. Lol. Starting out on the right foot, I guess.

This week's assignments and chapters are on Blackboard in pdf form, if you don't feel like pulling the trigger on books just yet.

Seems like these training rotations would have been prime time for TLSing...

Orientation has been... kinda dry. Trying to prepare us I presume

Is it too soon to already ditch CLR reading as worthless?
