I have done a couple of last day exam pickups and the lines were never that bad. A number of people aren't even in Charlottesville anymore.

Edit: Also, it's generally been a patter that the law school will shoot out warning emails about taking your exams on time, etc., because of the number of outstanding exams. I haven't gotten any of those emails, well that or I just completely ignored them, so I think you should be fine. I would not show up 10 minutes before the exam distribution time is set to end.

I am terrified I'm going to sleep through the check out period or something stupid.

the longest line I've ever seen was about 10-15 minutes, and that was only right at 8:30. I left, came back at 9:15 and it was deserted. Don't worry about it. Although, yeah, I also had anxiety about showing up late for the last slot.

There will be a long line at 8:30. By 9:15, you'll be the only one in line. By 6:00, everyone will be drunk.

Do you mean the Friday before bids are due or the Friday before the actual OGI weeks...I'm really hoping it's not the latter.

The email I got from Student Records said that "all final spring grades are due no later than Monday, June 9th." Then I guess it takes 2-3 days to process once a professor submits grades.

I actually already have all of my grades, but it doesn't matter for me since I just graduated.

Yeah, I was under the impression it was 6/9 as well, but I got that from the OGI prep webinar and don't remember seeing that e-mail.

I think the email was only sent to 3L's (c/o 2014). The email was about diplomas and transcripts and stuff like that.

So the GPA for brand 3 firms is higher than I expected, what happens to people just a little above 3.30?

They aggressively mass mail firms in every secondary market to which they have feasible ties and then aggressively mass mail firms everywhere else, and they do so well before OGI.

I was told by my LRW prof that we'll be choosing by late June/early July. She also mentioned the course list for the fall should be up by mid-June and VLR should be out by early July before OGI bids are due.

That's fall 2013 mislabeled as fall 2014. The 1L section profs and groupings of sections are from my 1L year.

So I'm living in a 2 bedroom at Copeley Hill next year with a roommate that will also be a 1L. I was under the impression that we had individual bedrooms, but earlier in this thread someone mentioned they are shared?? Can someone please confirm or deny this? If that's the case I may have to scramble for another place.

Edit: Nvm I did a forum search and apparently they changed that policy last year. Sweet lord that scared me haha.

Admirable restraint in this thread thus far. Might I suggest keeping it that way?

Perhaps because everyone who has it (I do not) is scouring it right now?
