Re: UChi Rising 2Ls (!!) Taking Questions

Looking at the 2-quarter classes, it looks like some of the classes are split with separate profs teaching them in each quarter (for the same sections - eg contracts with Posner in the winter and Ben-Shahar in the Spring, or Crim with McAdams in the fall and Miles in the Winter). Do you typically have to buy different books for each of these classes, or do they usually just go off of the same book.

IMO it would be a dick move on the profs part to require a different book. My split classes last year worked off the same book, I can't imagine it'll be different this year.

I am ready to answer some questions, although my expertise right now lies in orientation and week 1 of law school.

Niche specialization is the key to any good legal career.

You should be in the library working on your outlines.

This thread contains all kinds of juicy info! I'm counting on the 1Ls to keep it going.

I'm probably going to switch my app to ED before long, so hopefully I'll be joining you all next year.

I would be in more but I hear there are like 100x as many employers at OCI than there are students. So we've all got super special amazing jobs lined up for sure.

Each student gets 1351325 interviews, but we'll all get dinged at all of them because our e-mails aren't professional enough.

I heard about that too. Apparently all 600+ students at the law school immediately sent it in to Above the Law.

I think cutting in the lunch line is a worse offense than the e-mail reported. I hate line-cutters... so much.

I cut the line today, but it didn't matter because 1Ls had already saved all of the seats.

The Reuben, light on the sauerkraut. Yes I understand how late this is. Consider it a bump.
