I am logged into it right now. My connection is being really spotty right now, which is strange because my internet is usually quite good.

ETA: the connection definitely stabilized FWIW

Is there an advantage to applying for housing early?

I'll only be 25 but I've been out of school for a long time for my age! Eek! Glad to see other mid-20s people.

Oh hallelujah- I thought I'd be the "old maid" in my class. I'll turn 26 in July- out of college 5 years this year.

I was at an event the other night and met an alum from a different school who went to law school 5 years after graduating from college. He said that the people who were several years out there called themselves "OWLS" (Older Wiser Law Students).

That reminds me of Harry Potter and I approve.

It looks like for other schools administrators make the fb group. Does CLS do this too? They might not since they're also the only top law school not to have a fb page.

Anyone wanna give their thoughts on ASW? I was swamped with work and was only able to attend like 25% of NYU's so I'd love I hear peoples' impressions of CLS :)

CLS does not make a Facebook group. So one of you get on that.

I went, and that was definitely not my impression. A few interesting panels, great food, and the students that I met all seemed (contrary to rumor) really happy and friendly.

Does anyone know around when merit aid decisions are sent out, aside from the Hamiltons and Butlers?
