I feel so dumb for actually believing we'd get our course schedules today

Jesus, I forgot that 2/3Ls don't get any extra study days.

If I had my schedule, this is where I'd say "I'm starting to rethink my schedule."

Best is when it's a small student services event and they bring too many, and you can take one home for tomorrow. Nothing tastes better than the second free boxed lunch.

Take note 1Ls - take as much free stuff from this school as you can. You already paid for it.

Hey all - sorry for the dumb 1L question, but are these ABA/New York Bar Association memberships in the orientation packet something worth caring about?

There's an add/drop period that starts in a couple of weeks.

Should be fine for Genty's class. He likes to chop things up, and his syllabus will tell you exactly what he wants you to read. None of that "p210-248" junk.
