Also, please post the full letter mentioned above. And wtf is this speech you have to write? Do you all actually have to give speeches during orientation? Need details!


We have to give a 5 minute speech without any notecards or visual aids/powerpoint because having notecards would not permit our natural "style" to come through (according to UChicago).


Like... to the whole rest of your class? Or just to some OCS person?

Jesus Christ I would totally just not do this. What are they going to do. "No, we don't want your $70,000 for each of the next three years."


I think it's in front of our section?

There are suggested topics along with background material for each of the topics. This really doesn't seem like a big deal. I can see it totally sucking for people who are moving closer to the start of orientation, though.

Yeah whatever I'd rather just wing 5 minutes of talking about random shit than have to do any actual work for orientation

We had to do second city improv class but that at least required no prep.

I actually regret getting it though because 1) that ceremony was boring as hell, and 2) I think it actually hurt me during interviews because like five firms asked what it was and even with a proper explanation, it still sounded like a derpy thing to have.


Lol that's funny. Not a single person asked me about that--I guess I should be happy about that.

Henderson's exam. Still have nightmares.

But seriously (not that the above is not serious) they're all pretty good professors.

While studying for Baird's class I enjoyed reading the amazon reviews of his casebook for comic relief:


http://www.amazon.com/Henderson-Contrac ... +contracts

Overall: The book is borderline useless for its advertised purpose. The cases are poorly edited, not just the cases from pre-US either, modern cases are edited in such a way that you will read pages and pages and page trying to figure out what the judge is trying to say only to realize they really didn't say anything because the editors edited out the important bit. Even a simple case like Nichols v. Raynbred (a case it which the contract is dead simple, a cow for 50 shillings) is edited so poorly you'll be confused as to what the agreement was until you read a supplement. During the course you'll find the book more useful as a paperweight. After the course (assuming you haven't thrown it off a cliff or burned it at the stake by then) you'll find it most useful to put on your bookshelf to make yourself look smarter when friends and relatives visit.


Lol

just skim the cases and read chirelstein and farnsworth. this casebook is an absolute joke and will teach you more about the market for whaling oil in nantucket (seriously - see the section on gardner v gray) than the law of contract, whatever that may in fact be


^ sums up my feelings about his class as well
