I also saw that Avon Barksdale donated from beyond the grave.

A "Kale Salad" gave $10. Maybe he sold the black tupperware container on ebay.

ETA: It's up to $900+. Dude could buy a pretty decent PC for that.

Dude, no one wants to have their laptop stolen, even if other people will help them replace it. Also, school should be a place where people feel safe leaving things for a few minutes. Don't be a dick.


I am fairly certain that is was supposed to be a joke/sarcasm and just fell flat.



I can confirm, this was a very lame joke....

haha, sorry. With law students, you just never know...

-You're probably going to have to use Outlook at work for the rest of your life. Might as well get used to it (and I'd already been using it for a decade+). [fight the good fight]

Yes, Gmail does some of these too. But I prefer the way outlook deals with them, overall.


meh.

It's probably a better use of your time than whatever else you are doing, but not as useful as GTM.

I thought it was super useful because I literally had no idea what an issue spotter exam looked like until I took it.

Hey look the wifi is down again and our atrium is being turned into a ballroom again...this is the price we pay for only increasing tuition by 3% a year. Not worth it.

We just need another laptop going missing to complete the trifecta.

At least the wifi appears to be back up...FOR THE MOMENT.

It's pretty neat that other guy found where his laptop is. Since the listserv isn't working, he should go knock on that door and ask for it back.

What's that neighborhood like?

I wonder if he reported it to the police.
Sometimes cops will take the owner's LoJack info and go investigate, but I don't know if Chicago cops will do that.

Atrium/Harry's expansion looks ok, although I don't understand which part of the Atrium I'm looking at in that 2nd picture. But yuck, construction.

Do the ITP groups typically fill up with 3Ls and LLMs, or is there a good chance for 2Ls to get in?

Just bid enough points. Plenty of 2Ls do ITP. I think one trip last year was entirely 2Ls.

Where does bidding come into it? The registration page just has you rank the trips from 1 to 4 in order of your preference, and says they all cost 100 points.

And there's a list of lottery precedence: 3Ls who haven't done ITP > LLMs > 2Ls > 3Ls who have done ITP > visiting JDs

That is not how ITP signup works. Also, last year there were many many more ITPs. This year there are four. So last year isn't a good example. I bet this year there will be people who want to go who can't.
