I hope not... I don't want to be in a cut throat environment, but you are probably right....

I've found the PAWS expansion bit is not completely 100% accurate. I applied in September, set up my PAWs when I went complete in October. All I could do was look at a few things on it nothing else. In January my PAWs account expanded to show registration information and billing information (two things that were not there before). I just found out last week that I was wait listed so even the expansion is not a great way to tell anymore.

Yea, I'm still pending but my PAWS account looks fully expanded, but without Law Course Offerings. Other than that, it seems like I have everything else so I'm not counting on that to tell me anything, lol.

Did anyone else get an LSU ID? When they sent me the PAWS account info email, they also gave me an LSU ID. Just wondering, I haven't seen anyone talking about it.

I think we should. Anyone have any ideas?

Here is mine: Dress up as respective tars so we are easily recognizable! :D Failing that, just walk around saying things like, "ED to UVA!" and "TITCR". Eventually, we'll find each other.

LMAO!!!! Just for that, I think we do all need to get together:)
P.S. If I see a two dimensional person in a green dress, I will be so stoked!

I will be, I have to work however 30 minutes into it so I'm having my gf save all the conversations to Microsoft word if anyone wants me to email this to them afterwards I would be glad to.

PS does anyone have any insight on how to find roommates/apartments after the final decision is made?

I'll be getting home from work just as it starts. Not sure what new information will be presented that hasn't already been made available.

There is a housing coordinator. Not sure if this includes off campus folks looking for roommates, but if you want to spend $700 + a month to live in an on campus apt with 3 other law students, she is your gal. Her contact info in on the school website.

I would wager that once a FB group is setup that there will be tons of people looking on there for roomates.

I would love to grab drinks or something and hang out with everyone after the reception if anyone is down. I know nothing about the area though, so have no idea where to go.

I am looking into renting a house, because of my pup, and am also wondering how to find roommates...

Reading the case for the "mock class" now... Oh, and how did the webchat go?? I was working, so could not be a part, but if anyone has any information that was helpful from the chat please post, or PM me, that would be amazing!!!
Excited:)

Edit: I don't think dressing as rainbow brite would be appropriate lol, so instead I am wearing a black and white polka dot dress hahaha.

To the last two posters. My GF saved the entire chat for me to ms word. PM me your email address and I'll gladly send it to you tomorrow afternoon.

I am also lookin to rent a house for my pup. The chat mentioned FB as did the person above for finding roommates. Seems like FB + TLS + Craiglist will be the way to go.

*gulp* I'm looking through my emails and I can't find anything about the case/mock class.

I think I'm about to hit up the outlets to see if I can find something better to wear tonight. I'm getting really NERVOUS! :oops:

There were more out of state people there than I expected.

Free T-shirt = WIN.

Anyone else in tour group 4?

I was in tour group 1 and was one of the OOSers. LSU is probably my top option right now. I was very impressed.

Nah I was in 3. LSU definitely put on an impressive weekend. Sans an unlikely acceptance from FSU, looks like I'll be in Baton Rouge this fall.

I definitely enjoyed my time at LSU this weekend. I was in tour group 6, and once again among the OOS crowd. Still have to do ASW at FSU and Tulane, but I liked LSU, and feel everyone was very open and accommodating, as well as honest about the job prospects. I know I meet one person from this forum, but everyone else still remains a mystery lol.

I will say that the apparent openness between faculty and students was a very attractive feature of LSU. I still question whether or not they stick most of the OOS scholly folks in one section... The faculty said this was not the case, but some 1L's felt that it, I'm sorry, the determination of sections ;) was not random.

What did the students you talked to have to say regarding section stacking?
