This will suck when it gets cold but taking the 6 to South Loop Trader Joe's is another option. Has always worked for me.

Treasure Island, but it's pricy. If you live near Hyde Park Produce they have a good selection as well.


But Instacart


Eh the food delivery services I've looked at are even more expensive than TI. Right now I enjoy walking, but in the winter I'll probably start using something like that

Instacart marks up almost 20%. How do you think they make money? The $3.99 delivery fee?

Also interested in this, and as a side note, Picker is the man.

A lot of people in my class used this: http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-Secured ... ansactions

I wouldn't call ST a supplement-friendly class. Read the code. Then read it again. Repeat x infinity. That should do it.

Does anyone have suggestions for which internet provider is best in Hyde Park?

It's more a question of "least bad" than one of best, I'm afraid

Comcast is definitely less bad than AT&T. RCN also kinda sucks from what I've heard but might suck less than Comcast; can't get it at my building but maybe at yours. That about sums up the options at most buildings, but some of the bigger ones provide their own (hit or miss).

Does anyone have an outline for Adam Samaha's Con Law class? (He's teaching it at NYU now.) BizBro and I are both looking for one - help is greatly appreciated!

Am I living under a rock if I have no idea who Adam Samaha is? I feel like he might have been before the time of the people who post here.

He taught there from 2004 to 2012 - hoping an alum can help out (or someone with access to an old outline bank maybe)!

Are you a 1L? We don't have a 1L core Con Law at UChicago - the only one Samaha's taught from old outline banks seems to be an upper year Speech & Religion class.

Are all clinics and seminars (for non-1Ls) curved to 179 or just some of them?

Also, if anybody has a Corporate Finance outline for Dharmapala and wouldn't mind passing that along I would be seriously grateful.

If I remember correctly, all paper seminars are curved to 179 but if there's an exam it's the regular 177 curve.

2L actually, but it's still a core Con Law class. Thanks for checking!

Below a certain class size (seminars/clinics) the prof can ask for an exception and curve it to 180 iirc

any clue how this works for seminars where ppl turn in papers at different times? id think no grades until everyone has turned in, but i know that's not accurate from experience. same question for spring classes with 2ls and 3ls... grades are due for 3ls before 2ls.

I think the class has to be tiny for this. Like 6 ppl or less?

Just remember there's no reason to even think about outlines until mid-November at the earliest.

I rolled my eyes at the whole "you only have two tests your first quarter" thing from admissions, but right now I am thrilled about it. I can't imagine having 3+ tests to study for simultaneously while not having taken a law school test before.

Also remember that if you've always done better studying way in advance and you feel like starting your outlines now, go ahead and do that. I screwed myself over by listening to the common "wait until mid November" advice. I was always more of a "slow and steady" studier.

I always waited until fairly late in the game and did okay, but I also always wished I had gotten started earlier. I can't think of any real disadvantage to starting to outline early.
