It was July last year. I'd like them to post, need to pick out my m-w only classes so I can start booking long weekend trips. 3Lol.

Decided THIS semester would be a good time to do an externship and now I can't book classes on T/W mornings. I had a MTW schedule all last year and it was so so sweet and I'm sad it's not going to happen this semester :cry:

haha I had a crazy schedule 3L year and got no days off. I also did a judicial externship for no credit and asked for extra cases in clinic. But I loved all of the stuff I did, so no regrets.

I had class M-F this year (2L), but never before 1pm, which was great. A more motivated person would have gotten lots done, but I just enjoyed sleeping in every single day.

FYI, callback GPA info is up on Symplicity. Sad 40-45% response rate from Class of 2015. CSO to institute a pledge-to-fill-in-the-interview-tracker before OCI starts this year to offset Class of 2015's lack of school spirit.

ty,

should have said "I'll TAKE those boomers out..." but the message was hopefully loud and clear enough for them to hear regardless of missing words.

Literally a block away from Belmont and Broadway. My favorite part of Chicago.

I wish they'd just make all the data points anonymous and release the raw data for us to analyze, since they don't seem to be willing/able to do anything very helpful with it.

Nobody. I made it up because it's my favorite part of Chicago (mostly south of that corner, though I do love Unabridged Books).

I'm not seeing just 2013. Do they really not have it broken down by year this year?

ETA: Also, lol at having Wachtell but not even median data.

The file says 2011-2014 and then only has one data point for each office so we are all assuming its aggregated. Its useless.

I lived at Melrose and Broadway for 1L. I really love that area. Great neighborhood feel and lots of good restaurants.
