Thanks.


Are you currently in that class? I don't think you need an outline for it. I mean, Nanda essentially told us that typing notes in class is not necessary haha. It's just a case study course, no?

Another prof question: any thoughts on the following evidence profs- Schulman, Whiting, Murray, Feinberg?
Some seem to be practitioners who haven't taught in a few years but maybe 3Ls heard things through the grapevine

I've heard nothing but bad things about Sunstein and nothing but good things about Rakoff. I don't know anything about Vermeule or Freeman. Freeman has very high ratings on course evaluations, but who knows how much that means.


most people i know have liked freeman a lot. if you are a 2L and are not in a hurry to take ad law, it may be worth it to wait till 3L, not only because it's a hard class with a hard curve, but also because you might get a better mix of professors in a year (especially if stephenson decides to teach admin again).

Schulman and Whiting both have very solid reputations for Evidence. Murray a bit less so, I think. He tried to teach it as a 2-credit course, which didn't go so well, according to friends. I don't think Feinberg has taught it before.

Interesting, in what way did it not go well? He's teaching it as a 2-credit course again in the fall, and I was kind of thinking about taking it for the sake of getting it out of the way with fewer credits.

Hi - random question: When can we (prospective students) sign up for housing? I know Apr 1 is the deadline for on-campus dorms (Gropius, Hastings, and North), but are there any other deadlines we should mind?

Thanks so much!

I thought the on campus housing app wasn't available yet--is there something else we need to submit by Apr 1 (tomorrow)?

I was admitted all of Friday but I believe housing opens Monday, not closes.

The sense I got from several friends was that he tried to cover essentially all the same material, but obviously in half the amount of class time, so it was information overload. But bear in mind that I myself didn't take the course, so you'd be better off getting some firsthand accounts.

Could someone link me the Harvard EIP 2012 (Class of 2014) thread. I found the 2011 one by searching but couldn't find the 2012

Is there a public list of who attended EIP last year? Some schools put it out but I can't seem to find Harvard's. If not could someone PM it to me? I'm a new admit, and I solemnly swear I'm not getting ahead of myself, I'm from the South and just want to see what non-NY, DC, CA, CHI, BOS, etc. firms come to EIP.

This list may be imperfect but will give you an idea of what firms came from secondary markets in 2011 (2012 isn't available yet).
