Would be a good time. Finals terror won't be in full swing until Thanksgiving.

Is there a certain class I should ask to sit in on? WUSTL is pretty much my targeted school, so I want to make sure I feel 100% comfortable about my 100k+ lottery ticket, so I want to make sure to get the most out of the visit.

Haha this is an almost identical response to the one I formulated when I saw the original question.

you can't even chicago basketball in StL. I doubt there are any soccer bars. If there are, I don't know about them.

Yea there is one. I've never been there but another 1L has and told me about it, sounds pretty cool. It's called The Amsterdam Tavern, and it's in Tower Grove. Now that I have Fox Soccer Channel I usually just watch games at my place, but I'm planning on checking it out sometime.

Why does it seem like every WUSTL 1L on TLS is in E/F?

TBF, soccerfreak is usually so late to class, that's it's hard to classify him as in E/F.... :D

I keep wanting to ask him about FDR.

Still, I like him even though I don't know much about property except for takings.

Because it's true. They take it into account when forming sections.

+1 to the Amsterdam Tavern, great atmosphere for US games.

Someone told me that WGN usually gets the Chicago games. Not sure what channel that is here, but I was kind of mollified by that news. This lockout might end up saving my grades, but I still hate it.

I'm from there and yes this is/was sometimes true. I had directv though, so can't help with channel. WGN shows a lot of Cubs games, or maybe I just noticed more Cubs games because I like to see them fail.

Sorry to belabor the point, but what are people doing for evidence? Anyone have a supplement they recommend?

I am clueless in that class. Everyone says to just read the notes and not the book, but his notes are just that... notes. I'm sure his notes are very helpful for studying and putting together an outline, but I need some sort of explanatory material to help hash all this crap out, so I need a supp. I am going to be genuinely embarrassed tomorrow after I get pwned on the practice midterm.

Perhaps you watched it at Barrister's? I don't know if they're technically a soccer bar, but they play soccer games a lot (in my not-a-soccer-fan opinion.)

Can any of the 2L/3Ls comment on the "town hall" meetings with the dean re: jobs? Class of 2014 is tomorrow, and I'm sort of curious if the message will be the same as whatever he said to ya'll.

Ya, I'm wondering too. Are you going to it, 0L?

I'm thinking I'm going to.

Absolutely I'm going. Either the Dean will give it to us straight and it will be very informative, or he'll BS us and it'll be really entertaining.

Or, he'll split the middle and it'll be no fun at all.

From what facebook tells me, 3Ls were told to "network like crazy." I hope that's not all we get.

But, I guess, what more can you say to 3Ls at this point?

As long as I'm lighting up this thread with trivialities, can any of the 2L/3Ls speak to the utility of the "Alumni Student Summit" that's going down this weekend? Or maybe, explain what it is?
