I'm hoping someone will explain precisely what "lottery" courses are. I'm assuming they won't matter for 1L, and I have an educated guess as to what they are, but without any precise information on the UChicago website I'm coming to TLS for clarification. Thanks in advance.

Trust me, soon-to-be-1Ls, the relief and sheer joy of being done is exhilarating and indescribably awesome.

This. Nothing has ever weighed on me for such an extended period of time the way the end of 1L did. From the moment you are assigned the brief, conditions start to deteriorate. By the time you hit the reading period, you cannot help but be uncomfortable to say the least.

Out of curiosity, do you guys know how many students compete in (or finish) the law review competition? Do most people work during the competition period?

They said last year it was 140. Everybody works, since we're already starting late as it is.

The brief was pretty much the end of 1L for me. By the time we got to exams I was already done.

How much time do you have between when you get spring grades back and when you need to submit your bid list?

I think grades are due at the start of July, and OCI bidding is at the end of the month, so we should have at least 3 weeks if our professors are on time with grades (they aren't always).

EDIT: O.o did one of the electives release grades already?

Whoa, nice. I was thinking they might be holding grades until after the write-on deadline. How'd it go??

Lulz. I don't want East Coast or LA, so S&C is probably out.
