I think overall the WUSTL apparel is solid, but the law school selection is seriously lacking. I don't wear any of it, though I do wear my Law Rev shirts and my Section Wars shirt on occasion.

Question for those who have had crim with Inazu, does he not require a case book? Has some books listed, but not an actual casebook. Is he just being slow?

Granted being D3 is a big disadvantage (they just aren't going to be able to generate the same swagger as schools like Vandy/Duke/Stanford), but IMO the real problems are that the colors don't work together, the name is unwieldy, and the school logo is meh

It's because the eye conflates the 2 colors to shit brown.

Also, no section war t-shirts yet for the 2Ls, and my journal's t-shirt is so awful that 70% of them are still sitting in the journal office. So zero washu apparel for this guy.

During intersession, early that week iirc. Interesting time, little groups whispering together and a lot of interesting facial expressions, some grinning like idiots and some looking like they just got out of a car that flipped 3 times.

I've often had to wait until the end of the first week of the spring semester for mine. I seem to get stuck with the procrastinator professors.

Are grades released on WebSTAC or is there a law specific site for them?

They're posted to webstac, and someone will trumpet each release on your class FB group, so don't worry.

Our FB group has been very quiet. Not sure if people would comment on it. Either way, will probably just start checking after xmas. Can't believe it's a week away. Life goes fast in Law School

Not sure if this has been asked in here yet but, how would you guys rate the overall attractiveness of your class? Do the "LS hot" rumors hold true there?

Very low. Seem to be more attractive guys than girls, but all the decent looking girls are in long-term relationships.

Again, smart school, not state school.

i suggest meeting people in the business school, social work school and medical school.
wustl law attractiveness is low.
stl attractiveness is low.

SLU, by comparison to wustl, has prettier people.

But nobody will listen to any of the above. People will pounce all over each other in the fall of your first semester. Then the dust will settle, drama will ensue and everyone will be all "wtf?" Then you'll be like "wow i gotta find someone outside the law school."

I don't want to sound too shallow in my last post. There are plenty of attractive people in law school, it's just not like undergrad where it was just throw a dart type situation. And I'm not saying people in the school are unattractive. Just not the "wow" factor anymore.

Just a heads up to the 1Ls...Osgood graded his exams last semester in 3 days. Mandelker is also fast (as you would expect), but not that fast.

Our 2L class is damn fine, 3L is alright but we lost some talent to transferring. No idea about 1L.

I think its a decent female scene overall but I recommend treading lightly before dipping your pen in law school ink. Danger, Will Robinson.

Think the 1Ls are more like the 2Ls than the 3Ls (thankfully). Don't actually know any 1Ls, but the faces I don't recognize are typically >>>>> the ones I do around the law school.

Side note, anyone remember the meltdown that happened as a result of this topic in our CO2013 thread?

haha yes, i vaguely remember that. Was definitely a popcorn moment.
Ahhh... i still have another weekend left in Shanghai before I go back to the States. I'm actually starting to get tired of partying my face off after almost 4mo straight of it. Life's rough.
