You should take criminal procedure if you havent alread y and he does it this year. That is an awesome class regardless of prof, and I sometimes wonder how it would have been with mcadams


So so good.

Just take what interests you there are no real easy classes nor hard ones. I have some friends who do very well in long paper classes, others who excel in reaction paper/ discussion type classes, and at least one who swears by lecture style exam classes. No one does all the reading as an upperclassmen and any reading you actually do will be more enjoyable if you are taking things and teachers you like instead of gaming the system.

If your goal is truly just to minimize assigned reading shoot for corporate type seminars since you usually read WSJ type things instead of academic ones or cases. Minimizing reading isn't all it is cracked up to be though (like in Tax where you get 6 pages per class and no one calls it "easy")

All I know is that they're TLC, and TLC tends to have good building management (based on my experience and that of many friends who've lived in their other buildings). For whatever reason, didn't go see them when I was looking at all the TLC buildings. Not a bad location but 172 could be a bit of an issue in the winter. The prices look really good for the 1BRs.

Yes to both (in Regents at least). They take a while to deliver but were within their time estimate and assembly was pretty quick. Both delivery and assembly are steep.

I was gonna head to Ikea at some point (probably next Sunday) if you'd like a ride. Shoot me a PM.

Edit: but if you want really big stuff, probably can't fit in car. well, we could try...

I would rent a truck with maybe one or two other people. It's far cheaper and if you can't assemble ikea stuff, well I guess no one can really assemble ikea stuf but that's half the fun.

IKEA = Legos for adults


Yeah man, that shit could not be easier to put together. No offense to anyone who struggles with it (except Mal, who could not find his ass with two hands and a flashlight and should be ashamed of himself).

Ratner is good, and free. If you're near Regents and don't mind spending $30 or $40 a month, L.A. Fitness is pretty good. It's worth the money to me.

Yeah, ratner or crown are 100% tcr. Have everything you need w/ 4 olympic platforms and they never get too crowded. Just get a pump in before or after your block of classes.

Anyone with any experience with East Park Tower? I've had it up to my eyeballs with Regents.

Incoming 1L. Curious about doctoroff program. Especially the 1L internship. The site says the school helps with finding opportunities. Anyone have any insight on how that happens? Guessing it is totally separate from the MBA internship process? Also curious about how the mentorship process occurs? Do they consider your career goals? Who are the mentors?

I noticed a few pages back people asking about gyms in the area. I was wondering if anyone could comment on Regent's fitness center? I know it's probably not very big, but is it decent?
