Do we only need a router to set up the wireless in HUH or something else too?

As far as how they create sections, nobody knows, but you have to imagine that it's not completely random (sections are roughly gender-balanced and reflect pretty well the overall diversity of the law school, which would be exceedingly unlikely if the process were completely random).

Whether or not they use other attributes as well, nobody knows.

What section you are in does matter to the extent that you have different professors that will change your experience. Section 6, for example, will absolutely love their section leader but won't learn Tort law in any traditional sense because Hanson doesn't teach Torts.


would you mind breaking down section leaders?

if not, we will find out soon enough, but would appreciate a scouting report. lol


Are there consistencies between sections from year to year? If so, I'd definitely love some info on what each section tends to be like.

Just a router, but if it's a new router, the router requires an internet connection for setup and the internet connection requires a router to redirect you to the Harvard authorization page. Internet seems to be working pretty well, very fast, but stops working for a few seconds every once in a while and then comes back on.

Is everyone just taking their own photo against a white wall for the ID?

How is the Harvard internet? It wasn't available at my property.


Somewhere between dismal and mediocre. I'm trying to monitor my DL rate, and it varies between 3.5mbps and 8mbps. I'm worried that it will sink even lower when all the students are back.


Oh wow, that makes me feel much less butthurt over having to pay for outside interwebs.

Whichever section I end up in tends to be the coolest section year after year.

Is the internet at the dorms different from the HUH internet? My friend just moved into his place at HUH and says he's getting like ~85Mbps down. Image

FYI your ID photo gets used for things other than your ID. Don't be surprised if you walk into a club or organization office and see that photo blown up on the wall with all the other 1Ls.

Yeah I figured as much. I didn't do like glamour shots or anything, but I also didn't want it to look like I just took a selfie in my bathroom. So I used photoshop to make the background white.

All I'm saying is I better not be seeing any super photogenic collarbone-to-top-of-head pictures with immaculate hair when I walk into a club and/or organization office.

Anyone else get HUH rent for September charged on the recent August bill? Do we need to pay this immediately or is there a specific deadline?

Finally uploaded a picture. That was the most excruciating 280 x 296 JPG of my *life*.

On a different note, is everyone's bill still reflecting aid as "anticipated"? Wonder when it's finally gonna show "all clear" on the status check site.

Summer travels over, so excited to move up to Boston in a week!

(Also, for the ID photo: I had a shitty photo I used for a passport visa and I figured it would suffice for the ID. Didn't realize that photo was so important. Eeep.)

Don't they ask for *actual* summer income and assets at some point?
