Utah Law Class of 2016

Postby Pip42 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:06 am

I thought I would start this thread since I haven't seen one. I'm not 100% committed on the U of U yet but it is one of my favorites.

Congrats everyone so far. Hopefully our resident SLC experts can share some info about housing/living in SLC/and lift ticket bargains! ;)

U of U undergrad here. Looking like 50/50 shot at attending for law school. Depends on how UW treats me off of the waitlist, I suppose.

I can answer anything and everything related to any questions about the school, Utah in general, how good the ski pass discounts are... etc. haha

Any thoughts on professors/classes/groups to either seek out or avoid?

Also, is there some kind of official or semi-official bar review, or do people just get together and drink on their own? I noticed in the CO16 Facebook group that like half of the people listed have wedding photos as profile pictures, which makes me think having some kind of alcohol-based activity for we non-Mormons would be good.

Well you have zero choice on professors/classes your first year, so...too bad. We'll be around to give advice on specific professors when you guys get schedules.
As for groups, as far as I can tell all the student groups are great, just depends on what you're interested in.

There's an official bar review, email gets sent out pretty much every week. There's definitely enough activity for the non-mormons.

Fair enough. I guess I meant more "Any professors/classes you've particularly enjoyed or particularly disliked?"

Good to hear. Hooray beer!

Loved Kogan (contracts) Wildermuth (civpro) Teter (conlaw) Anderson (methods) Martinez (property).

Honestly, they're all good. McCormack (torts/conlaw) is a great guy, but he won't teach you much of anything.

Can anyone provide some input on a good place to look for a house? My wife has heard that the Sugar House area is nice? We don’t have any kids, but do have Labradors and my wife will be working downtown.

Thanks!

Sugarhouse or the Avenues are probably your best bets for something reasonably priced with a yard.

IIRC Wiseman and montanamoose both posted in the CO16 thread confirming Utah.

On an unrelated note, there's talk in the Facebook group about meeting up for drinks, I think it was supposed to be this week (I've been on the Yampa for five days so I'm behind on the internets). Anyone else planning to go?

Just in case anyone is on here but not on the Facebook group (which I doubt, but hey), the plan is evidently to meet for drinks next Tuesday, the 2nd, at the Green Pig.
