Re: UChi rising 2Ls and 3Ls (!!!) taking Questions

To any of the UChi students currently living in Regents or anyone who knows of someone who is: Do you guys know if there will be a replacement bus line for the 171/172? If not, is it convenient to get to campus without a car from Regents?

Thanks!

It's not convenient without a car if you're not taking the bus, but the university is going to replace the 171/172. There are twice as many grad students as undergrads at UChicago, many of whom live off campus, and the university isn't just going to leave them stranded. Last I heard they were still looking for different vendors.

Cost, I think.

I bet indirectly due to overcrowding -- one of the comments talks about the CTA asking for a higher subsidy because of their "crowd reduction" plans. That seems to make sense, as the crowds on the 171 during the winter time are actually ridiculous.

Kind of really stupid, since it's on Westlaw anyway.

I'm going to assume it's not true so I don't have to hit myself in the head with a casebook.

I seriously doubt it. People hiding books or stealing pages is one of those vintage law school rumors that I don't think actually happens in real life.

One of my relatives legitimately complained that this happened to him in 1973. It just seems silly now, though, since everything at all relevant is on Westlaw.

Hopefully that's off as that be taking a bit of hit compared with the last couple years.

I don't think anyone is doing anything but guessing up to this point unless OCS has accidentally mentioned it to someone. There's really no way to know for sure unless you hear it from OCS or wait until the Who Worked Where list comes out in June.

60% seems a bit low based on my own anecdotal experience; it seems closer to the 70 - 80% range to me, but again, that's based off the completely unrepresentative sample of people that I've talked to about it.

If it makes you feel better, there's no way anyone actually knows that number unless they're BFFs with OCS who has managed to hunt down every 2L (which they haven't).

No one knows these numbers. Pretty sure that number is a random guess. FWIW I'd be very surprised if the current 2Ls didn't do better than our year.

Whoever @dat1L is, please stop or at least tone it down a bit. You're ruining one of the few bright spots in my life.

Has anyone here had Adam Cox for anything and would be willing to send me an old exam of his? He just came to NYU from UChi, so we have nothing on him

I had him for CivPro 1L year and really liked him. He taught a few different subjects, so not sure what you are looking for. Wasn't he at NYU all last year?
