Hold up, CLS'16 gets Clermont's new book? All I got was a crappy coffee thermos that leaked.

Not that I think I would have read it. You'll have an entire year to read Clermont's words via the civ pro textbook, and you will read every single page of it.

Once upon a time, yes. I also once had to write a district court opinion on personal jurisdiction and figured it wouldn't hurt to brush up. We had the real FKC, too, none of this "concise edition" shit they coddle you kids with now.

I remember holding the comparatively concise (compared to other classes, that is) civ pro book and going, "this is for the whole year?"

Oh boy.

The mexeo fans are cult-like.


I don't really understand people who don't think mexeo/cafeo are the two best places to eat in collegetown. So I guess I'm in dat cult.

I agree it's probably the best in collegetown. I just don't have a strong attachment to it.

The rice is too salty or something. I prefer Viva's burritos downtown. I like the banh mi at cafeo, though.

All I got was a crappy postcard about health insurance. There are disadvantages to living in the boonies.

Well, toothbrush and I live in NY, so we would be the first to get anything. But yeah, I think I got that health insurance card at the beginning of the week.

+1. My GF is reading it first, though. She seems more interested in it. I'm going to be a horrible 1L.

Yup, I received the health insurance card on Tuesday or Wednesday. Perks of being a New Yorker.. I guess.

I can think of someone whose name rhymes with "toady" who would disagree.

I know it's really late, but what kind of meal plan do Cornell Law student usually get?

Cornell just has so many options :o

Depends on where you're living/how many times you actually plan on eating at the dining halls. Also, look up the hours for the dining halls closest to MTH first to see if they'd fit your schedule.
