That's why I did 0 credit option 3L. No need to burden friends with my terrible work ethic.

Meh, for JBL, I took the credit because you do a read through of half of an article after it's passed through two rounds of edits. No source hunts. So I figured it wasn't going to be hard at all. I was right. Took about two hours each time. Worth it.

You get it through the University. Look on Security's website. It's really expensive though. No way you can park and take Septa?

ya penn wants about $170 a month. Expensive as hell, but given the cost of parking in philly it seems fair. Comes out to about $8-$9 a day.

LR calls will be going out from 6-8 tonight, so I just wanted to clarify - do the calls go out in alphabetical order of who gets it? And if you didn't get any journal, the email from Dean Clinton telling you that should have come already, right?

I've never heard of anyone straight up not getting a journal

Also I'll use this space to say if you made law review, and it was 99% sure because of grades, consider declining. Anecdotal evidence suggests it doesn't matter for OCI. Unless you want to do a clerkship or something similar and in that case of course do it. Law Review is a pain in the ass.

And so what if they're alphabetical or not? Go have a beer. No sense waiting by the phone for this shit, they'll leave a voicemail.

Do we get lockers? Do we have to pay for them? Individual or shared? Do the lockers have keys or combinations? Are they full size? Are they accessible at any time, including nights/weekends/holidays?


Cleary, I'm a big locker user.

Yes. No (I mean, yes, you pay a LOT for them but no). Individual. Combination. Full-ish size. Accessible whenever the school is open, so not nights, yes weekends, depends on the holiday.

Sooo if I leave something important in there that I NEED that night am I like..REALLY SCREWED or am I a polite conversation with a security guard away from being able to access it anyway?


Also, does this mean the law library isn't open 24/7?

Only during finals. Building normally closes at 10 or 11 or something, and yes, you're screwed if you leave something you need between then and 7:30 am.

Maybe your wallet? Unless you frequently lose both your keys and your wallet simultaneously.
