dailygrind, that image is incredible. Also I image searched for like 5 minutes and failed to find a single pic of a person with multiple ties, so that is like double props.

Like what the most reliable highlighter brand is, or what font you should use for briefs and outlines.


Like chilling the fuck out.

Simultaneously or in series?

I wanted to look nice for the photo, since it goes to all the employers at OCI. I wore a dress shirt with rolled up sleeves and jeans, pretty casual, and a sportscoat. Second the photo was over, I threw the coat in my locker. . . I only looked like a douche for about 10 minutes.

You're right. Totally TTT.

I didn't realize that law school orientation was supposed to function the same way as a summer camp.

I didn't realize law students shouldn't be expected to help out the less fortunate.

Garamond is solid, though I feel that Palatino Linotype brings a nice level of refinement without being overly pretentious within the Serif realm. It really embodies the greatness of the Renaissance and you feel the antiquity flowing through such a great a noble font.

if i remember right, you're going to UW. nobody wore a tie the first day except the SUPER GUNNERLOL who wore a three piece suit. please, pretty please, don't be that guy.

i wore a polo shirt and khakis and fit in fine. if anything i was better dressed than most. if you want to wear a button down shirt, fine, but seriously, unless things have changed it says something in the orientation materials about the dress code being casual. listen to that.

also re: the discussion of service day it was ridiculous. i don't have any problem with law students helping the community, but the fact that i went to a nursing home and helped a rich old people retirement home clean windows and vacuum floors so that new residents could move into their rooms that were nicer than any apartment i have ever lived in by far was stupid and far far beyond the scope of anything that should be meaningfully called "service."

What are your thoughts on a polo with a tie - matching of course.

I'd sooner try to take a rectal temperature on myself with a broken glass thermometer.
