Also if you're in a big group and at the back of that group, make sure the people setting the pace are not power walkers (you know who you were).
Keeping this in mind for April ASW. I've lived in New York City for 5+ years and am basically only capable of powerwalking as fast as possible from location to location.
This is the advice I'm taking from the ASW recaps:
1) Bring a flask.
2) During Dean Minow's Q&A, definitely ask her what justice means. For your fellow TLSers, you will be seen as ironic and labeled a hipster. From everyone else you'll get eye rolls and be labeled a gunner. Then you will finally become that rare breed, the gunner hipster, despised by all mankind. Tangent here: Gunners are basically the hipsters of the law school world, right? We're all kind of gunners (hello, we got into HLS) but we just hate the people who are assholes about it (and we call them gunners) just like everyone who lives in Brooklyn is a hipster, but they reserve the term for people who are assholes about it.
3) If you get drunk enough on Saturday (see note 1), your crippling debt won't seem so bad, mostly because you missed the presentation.
4) If you meet someone this fall and think it might be specs, just ask yourself, Does this person wear glasses? Is he a giant? Is he not consuming alcohol? Does he have a gorgeous wife? If you answer yes to these questions, yes, it is specs.
5) Underground tunnels???? How was this not in our admissions packet? "Maybe you've heard Boston is cold. We at Harvard developed a solution: underground tunnels that ferry you from home (the library) to class and back again. Your 1L year at Harvard, you'll never see daylight, you'll never be cold."
