Slightly jealous that my friends going to GULC in the fall are getting their class schedule/section assignments today.

I expect all of you have accommodation set up, but if not I and my family are moving at the start of August. As a result our 3 bedroom townhouse will be available at the start of August for rental through June, then it should be renewable for twelve months at that time. There's one large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms. We use one of those for my office.

It's perfectly suited for a family with plenty of grass out front and back in a really friendly neighborhood. It's a ten minute drive to the law school. The house had its siding and windows replaced in the past year, which should help keep the bills down. The community has garden plots and a small playpark.

Rent is just $1,035 - a real bargain. Drop me a PM if anyone is interested.

You should be glad you don't get your schedules/section assignments until the Friday before orientation. It makes things very relaxed for the weeks before orientation. Y'all should try and plan a 1L class meetup or something. We had one last year with most of the 1L class at the Bilt the Saturday before orientation that spilled over to Three, Virg, Trinity, and Boylan on the Corner.

I really can't believe it's been a year. Time really flew.

To the incoming 1Ls, hit the batting cages if you intend to play softball but haven't played in a while. You don't want to be the one in your section who can't hit.

Not sure exactly what you're asking about, but 2014-2015 tuition info is available here http://www.law.virginia.edu/html/prospectives/finaid/tuition.htm and you should have received a couple emails already regarding financial aid and loans.

i hate how they keep tuition rates the same for in-state students (what you pay when you come in is your tuition each year), but out of state students have to pay the new rates =\

I don't believe this is true. According to the websites in-state was $47,900 last year and is now $49,800. I wish it was true though (except for the part where out of state students get the increase).

Incoming students are at $51,800 for in-state. That's still different from the out of state kiddies.

Yeah. It's definitely still discounted, but it doesn't seem to remain the same for all 3 years. It looks like it still increases.

ETA: The 49,800 is in reference to 2L & 3L.

5 1Ls from TLS in the Jeff? That's pretty cool. I think we only had 5 or 6 1Ls (TLS and otherwise) in the Jeff last year. Feel free to stop by and say hi in August (PM me or something for details).

Not true - I'm in state and my tuition went up ~3k.

So uhh, I finally activated my email account. Is it normal to get an email account that seems to be composed of a random combination of letters and digits?

For instance, my college email had a email address that somewhat reflected my real name. The email address I got from UVa just seems like it was randomly generated.

it should be your first, middle (if you have one), and last initial, followed by a random number and two random letters.

You can get an alias of your choice @email.virginia.edu if you really don't like the number/letter combination. Here's the link

It can be nice to have the alias for things like your resume at OGI time or if you need to give out your address over the phone.

Hi all!

I am looking for someone to take over my lease for fully furnished 1 bedroon in Jeffersonian. Rent is $745/month. Jeffersonian is arguably the best place for UVa law school students because it's right next to the law school (located even closer to law school than Pavilion) and located very close to Barracks mall. Message me if you're interested or have any questions!

Hi 1Ls,

I'm a rising 2L and have the following supplements to sell. Most are helpful ones for the first semester. Let me know if you are interested. The crim text book is $35. The rest is all $10 or lower.

1Ls, wait on buying any supplements until you know what prof you have. Also, the library has all of these for free. Someone should probably buy this person's CrimLaw (Bonnie) textbook though (unless there's a new edition - there might be since we used some printouts from the new edition last year).

You can check out some older editions for the semester. For new ones, you can check them out for three hours only. I thnk the civil procedure ones and crim ones may apply to most sections. Anyway, I just want the books taken before moving...
