Grandpa's got another one. You guys wern't kidding about the parking situation. I had to go down to the Law School today to drop off my photo for my Gator 1 Card (CD file got corrupted). I was in there for five minutes and when I came out, I had a $30 citation on my windshield. Lovely. I don't even think we can get our decals yet and there seems to be absolutely no place to park without it. So I hope I never have to go back until orientation.


Don't pay it. Fight it. Also, ask if maybe you can get it validated?


You can appeal it online, and if the appeal is upheld you can do a 2nd level where you speak to the head of UF's traffic court in person.

FYI so u don't get caught again, they also have temporary parking passes in the office if you are there for an appointment or something simple so that you don't get a ticket. I had to ask for one when I went in a few weeks ago.

Lucky. Apparently the former tenants of my place are currently squatting in the appartment. Problematic as I'm supposed to move in on Saturday and according to the woman I spoke with they can't do anything but fine them outlandish sums of money.

I have the "power" to delete that whole post which I'm so tempted to do because it's blowing up my facebook with worthless notifications. :twisted:

Thank you!

Does anyone (AJaKe?) know if it's *really* necessary to print out those required ILSP readings? It's over 30 pages total...

I'm not sure which readings you have. We had a case to read (for a briefing lecture), a 'quiz' (which had wrong answers) and an Introduction to Law type deal (jurisdictions, crap like that). You will learn that last bit in LR&W and in likely each class on the first or second day. The briefing bit is somewhat useful, but you don't really learn how to efficiently brief until you are at least midway through your first semester if that. The intro to law bit is crap like here is SCOTUS and the two paths to get to SCOTUS (federal and state), easy stuff that you already know. In short, you do not have to and likely do not need to print anything.



I think ours are the same. The answers to the quiz are still wrong, even (I think). It just says on the page to "be sure to print these required readings", but I was thinking most people wouldn't bother and now I definitely won't.

Hey everyone. I got in off the waitlist on Friday and I can not believe it, but I will be joining you all in a few weeks. I look forward to meeting some of you at orientation. I am beyond stressed out now because I am rushing to get all of my paperwork in, but it is so worth it and I am beyond excited!! Hope everyone has a smooth transition into law school!
