We had a Buss packet, too. Not sure how much changes from year to year.

actually read the schedule, nvm. it all sounds incredibly boring, except the stuff that has free pizza or drinks.

You might want to set up a filter that sends bookserv messages to their own folder. The volume is going to be absurd for the next 2-3 weeks.

Just came here to post this. Filters are life-changing.

It's just kind of random. Get used to a lot of Cedars.

I'm liking the food trucks so far. They're pretty expensive but you can get a lot of food, like enough to split between two meals. Do they leave during the winter? I hope not.

I'm a 1L at another, less distinguished, Chicagoland law school.

I'm wondering if someone at U Chicago could help me out by hooking me up with some of the past exams and model student answers your school's Contracts profs have made available at http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/e/law/cours ... =Contracts

I'm worried about my Contracts course, and my professor is new, so I have no old ones to look at and work off of...

And I won't distribute the documents or answers to anyone else.

Thanks to anyone who can help. Please DM me. Will gladly buy you a coffee downtown/deliver an inappropriately long hug to anyone who can help.

We don't have contracts yet. We aren't permitted to share past exams with students/friends/etc either. Apologies and best of luck!

I'd say most people have ambitions of starting now and getting caught up and it ends up happening over/right after thanksgiving break. There's really not that much material for elements and CP1, but the first time outlining is admittedly more time consuming than subsequent attempts due to inexperience and since your notes now are almost certainly more detailed (excessive) than they will be come winter and spring.

TL;DR if you haven't started you are in the majority and if you haven't done anything by Thanksgiving, don't worry you still have time.

I'm definitely already seeing a change in the way I take notes. It's encouraging to think it might drop off even more.

He actually keeps pretty quiet in the one class I have with him.
