Xylo I'm being a jerk and quoting to get your attention. Can we do a poll for where everyone is going to live and/or when we're moving to VA?

I'm assuming at this point people are starting to have that stuff figured out and it might be nice to compare notes.

Yeah! What should be the poll options? Obviously Pavilion, Jeffersonian, Ivy Gardens... anyone else want to out where they're living/nominate a complex? Also have you decided yet, Toucan?

Bortles it's time for you to finally admit you're one of us and come to UVA already.

Section assignments will be posted by 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14


Does that seem really late to anyone else? Frosh year is pretty hazy by this point, but I feeeel like I knew what my class schedule was going to be, like, months in advance.

I think it just varies a lot by school. For undergrad I got my first semester schedule during orientation, so later than UVA's timeline. Friends of mine got them at the beginning of summer. Similarly, those weirdos at GULC already got their sections...

2017'er here (yeah, I'll get back to my own thread soon) who had the same frustrations last year but in retrospect I really like how UVA does it:

1. It keeps people from doing 0L summer prep--not the possibly-helpful stuff like reading Getting to Maybe (which I didn't read but which some people said really helped them), but the always-unhelpful stuff like buying your casebook and reading/briefing cases over the summer. If you don't know your professors, the temptation to buy the casebooks won't be there and you can spend these last couple months doing things that will actually help you get ready for 1L (relaxing, traveling, earning some money, spending time with friends and family, slowly building your alcohol tolerance, etc.)

2. It allows 1L's to get to know each other during the first week everyone arrives in C'ville without segregating themselves by section. Obviously a lot of y'all will have work, family, and housing reasons to arrive just before orientation, but otherwise the best advice I can give is get to C'ville early. I moved in 2 weekends before (so for you guys, that would be the weekend of August 8-9) and spent that whole first week just getting to know my classmates. It was a blast. Then sections came out that Friday, and we had our first section get-togethers that weekend, which were also a blast. I loved my section, but if I had known the whole time what section I was going to be in, I probably would have just hung out with them the whole week and never gotten to know a bunch of people outside my section who ended up being pretty good friends during 1L year.

(tl;dr don't do 0L prep, get to Cville as early as your situation allows and go out and meet people before classes start!)

That all being said, your schedules are pretty much set already: all of you will have CivPro at 8:30, Torts at 10, Criminal Law at 2:10, and Contracts at 3:40. It's just a matter of figuring out which profs you have and on which days you have which classes.

Also I'm looking forward to meeting all you guys in a couple months!

Great post! I actually am moving to Charlottesville that weekend, so hopefully my experience mirrors yours. (Boo to CivPro at 8:30 though. :| )

And so far my 0L prep has consisted of binge-watching Veep. Because, um, something something law degree politics.

Anyone else get a letter to "Parents of"? Kinda weird for graduate students, right? Come to think of it, why do they even think my parents have the same address? Odd.

If we don't get our class schedules until orientation are we basically forced to buy the books at the bookstore, or is there usually enough time to order from Amazon before we need them?

What orientation activity is everyone picking? It's hard to select 1, 2, and 3.
