Okay. Another question for the group: does anyone know how and when we receive our 'stipends'?

If by "stipend" you mean the loan refund? If you have set up a direct deposit, youll get it on the day of disbursement. If you havent, youll get a physical check a couple days later. Dont know exactly when the disbursement date is.

I couldn't think of the term 'loan refund,' so thanks for that. How did you set up direct deposit? I haven't heard about any of that.

Don't forget to sign up for the advisee program (should have gotten info in your email). If you're lucky, you'll pull a fellow TLSer as your advisor and be cool at the start of 1L. Get your immunizations in, if you haven't yet. Get those leases signed. And get your ass to Durham! (Also kinda bummed we don't yet have class/section assignments, but here's to hoping we get them soon)

Anyone have/had Sachs for Civ Pro? Just looked at the syllabus and the fact that "quality of class participation" is 25% of the final grade does NOT make me happy.

Where did you find the syllabus? And sorry I haven't but to me that actually sounds pretty cool

Class participation is defined strictly as responses to cold calls :( :( :( :( :(

Yeah. It's straight, algorithm-based cold-calling (everyone starts with an equal chance, and getting called on gives you, I think, a 1/8 probability relative to those who have been called one fewer time than you--lower, but not 0%--and so on through additional calls), so there's no avoiding and little predicting it. No mentally healthy person loves cold-calling, but Sachs is at least nice about it. He's mentioned that he finds the awkwardness of watching someone struggle through one to be very unpleasant and will move on pretty quickly or try to help you through rather than criticizing or embarrassing you. If you do the readings, you'll be fine. I even did an alright job bootstrapping myself through a couple when I hadn't read, but I don't recommend it.

Just want to be sure I've read the LEAD week email correctly: we aren't supposed to dress casually on Tuesday? Business casual?

If you havent yet been, you should get on the fb group and show up at some of these events people are coordinating. Met some great people already! Also, totally taking suggestions if we want to do TLS-specific meetup
