^ this.

You can get the small meal plan where you have like 42 meals in a semester.

To all my Hughes residents this fall if you guys want to post any questions about Hughes in this thread feel free I will answer any questions you guys have. I answered a bunch of pm's earlier on, but obviously some people might not have gotten all their questioned answered. Lavitz did a great job of relaying my pm's. However, if there is any more questions that you have feel free to either pm me or just post in the thread. Can't wait to meet you all this coming fall.

The less fucks I gave, the better I did. Same for spring.

Lacepiece isn't going to betray one of his Hughes residents. 8)

Haha you guys might want to wait til ur schedules come out. If I don't have ur profs my books will be worthless. Arbiter and I had the same teachers for every class. My advice is find someone like him. Preferably on law review with great highlighting and had all your teachers from last year. Buy the whole set. Skim the readings and take down the highlited portions of the text as notes. You'll thank me later.

Cause we all know there's no way to get good grades without Arbiter's old books (which may or may not be the same edition that will be used this year).

Lol. My grades were fine and I didn't prep like Lacepiece and I didn't have an upperclassman's books. There's something nice about being the first to underline/highlight/write notes into the margins of your own books (but different strokes for different folks)

I actually regretted not buying new books. I didn't realize how much other people's highlighting/notes would annoy/distract me.

Even the staff and faculty don't have them, so I assume they don't exist.

Wasn't asking, was answering the question. There is no law.cornell.edu, just x@cornell.edu.

Whats the format for the email address anyways ? I believe one that is my initials and then 3 digits (ex. "xyz123@cornell.edu ). Does that ever convert into something like john.doe@cornell.edu ?

No. It's always initials plus numbers.

They explained it at ASD... (upperclassmen, correct me if I'm wrong)
They use your initials, and the number following your initials represents the number of times those initials have been used to create a user ID. For example, say my number is 649. 648 other people with my initials have had user IDs created for them.
