They had this little yellow piece of paper that came with that packet that I displayed a couple weeks back. They said that the text book list would be out on the 1st of August on this site:

Just so that no one is out of the loop, they also say to check the bulletin board for assignments that our profs might post before the first day of classes here:

I'm trying to get housing to work with me because they said that the earliest they can get me in is the 17th. :shock: Andy by "pre-orientation" I'm just going to assume that you mean waking up the next day with a helluva hangover. 8)

SBA wanted me to pass this along:

We are going Tiki Tubing on Saturday, July 10th. Arrive at the law school by 1045 to catch the bus. The bus will be leaving at 11am from the law school, and it will return around 4pm. Bring your own drinks, ice chests, and food. The cost is $19 per tube. The bus is free.

If it rains, we are going bowling at All Star Lanes on Airline at 11:30. Still come to the school first for the official decision of bowling or tubing. We have lanes reserved. Bowling will be on SBA (free to you!).

Also, tell everyone to add LSU SBA to their friends.

Thank you! Hope you can come!

Yeah, I should have used a better word, or spelled it out at the very least.

Where are you trying to live that they are making you wait that long?

I'm going to Nicholson because I"m not from the area and I thought that campus housing would be a safe-bet for me and the wife for a semester or two. I got everything worked out now with the housing office so my move-in date is now August 6th.

Oh, that's good. That's really funny that on-campus housing didn't want you to move in until after LS started. :lol:

Yeah, after getting in contact with the housing department, I found out that their housing assignment schedule is more in line with the undergrad school year as opposed to graduate school. Oh well, I was just worried about getting all my stuff down there and hanging out for a couple days before we start the grind on the 16th.

Just got back from a short 2-day to Baton Rouge. I wasn't able to make is to the Admitted Students Event so I went and took a tour of the law school. I was definitely impressed. The only negative thing I could say was that the library looks pretty aged. Other than that I thought everything was very nice. I also met a 2L and a 3L who were really nice. Talked for a while a got some advice. So, for all my fellow Section 2's, I hear we have some interesting professors and the 2L really only had one bad thing thing about one of the profs and that was simply that he will work our ass off. (reading, etc.)

Downside of the trip was that I struggled to find any decent housing within 10 miles. The area is very old and even the old apartments and small homes are very pricey. Slightly discouraging, but I will continue to look and hopefully snag something.

I'm going to be at One Lakeshore Place. It is a little tired, but the rent is good- check it out.

Withdrew this morning with $$ and ate the $500 deposit. Good luck to all of you, especially those I met at ASW.

Who was the prof? I'm kind of disappointed that we won't have any classes with Bockrath or Diamond. :? I love sarcasm.

Yes Cumberland (Samford U in Birmingham) and they threw in full tuition. Cumberland places extremely well in Alabama so I jumped on it.

Got a mailing today. I'm in Baton Rouge so I figure it may be a few days until you all get it.

It's our assignments for orientation. We're to read and brief a couple of court cases.

I'm in BR and haven't gotten it yet, so I guess I should expect mine on Tuesday or Wednesday.
