I could also make myself a little available, too.


+1

I'm down to answer questions during lunch. Also, I'll probably hit up y'all's continental breakfast for some free muffins.

Speaking of TV,

Kalvano, I wanted to ask you - is your avatar House-related? That's what it looks like to me...

It is. House would be on my list if I could only include the first 3-4 seasons.

So when I first read this headline a couple of months ago I totally thought Firefly was resurrected for season two... :cry:

Completely agree. I used to be creepily in love with Hugh Laurie because of that show.

I didn't get it either. So long SMU I guess I'll have to suck it up and go to Austin now.

I was wondering about this too. Studying at Oxford sounds like something you want to have on a resume, but ultimately I'm inclined to think its fluff which amounts to a glorified summer vacation. Thoughts?

My thoughts are that I might do it either way. :)

All you really do during your 1L summer is fluff stuff, aside from maybe 3-4 lucky people who get a paid internship at a firm.

As far as fluff stuff goes, it's expensive but several people have said it was worthwhile and potential employers loved to talk about it with them at OCI.

I feel torn on this. On one hand, I want them to hurry up and make a dang decision. On the other hand, I'm afraid of what that decision will be, and frankly, I am not ready to end my cycle's (technically) 100% success rate :?

Pro tip, kiddies - if you get pulled over by Park Cities cops running radar on Hillcrest:

1) Burning rubber and trying to fly into the law school garage will not save you. They don't get to the entrance and go "Oh shit, I can't go in THERE!"
2) Park Cities cops are dicks already, thus....
3) Arguing with them and yelling at them will NOT help you


Dear law student lady in the white BMW convertible - I hope you read this and take it to heart.

I'll be at the ASD breakfast in an official capacity as one of the representatives of the Black Law Students Association. I'll be the black guy in the lavender Polo shirt.

The email just said what time to meet (8:45 to 9:15) and said that an itinerary would be distributed on Friday. Right?

All right, so I've touched down in the lone star state...any suggestions as to what I should do tomorrow around the SMU area before the ASW on Friday?
