Definitely! I heard that last year's was great. Can't wait til I get an admit packet, so that I have some tangible evidence that I was really accepted.

I have a quiz bowl tourny in Chicago on Saturday, but I'm trying to work it out so I can leave that evening and salvage what I can there.

I'll upload them ASAP! I had my computer in to be fixed over break and its hard drive failed so I am in the process of getting everything back to normal (while finishing papers, etc. haha)... and I will add in advance, there are a lot of pics :D

I can also through together my impressions of the trip (I stayed with 1Ls, who were frickin awesome, and did some fun stuff) if anyone is interested!

Housing viewbook is at my parents' in the US, so I took some time this morning to look through housing options on the web.

Among the many Munger amenities: Dual-flush toilet

!!!

:shock: Might have to live there now.

congrats all

I can attest to the fact that munger is pretty cool. if i have class at 830 i can leave at 827 and not be late. in the beginning, there will be many parties, most of which will be in munger.

I can also attest to the fact that the fun wears off sometime after the first few months (ymmv). shit's expensive. people are great, but it only compounds the "living in a bubble" feeling.

Got my package yesterday with my new favorite t-shirt!

So, would you recommend maybe living in Munger for the first year and then branching out?

If you were re-doing 1L housing selection, would you pick EV or Rains with non-law students over Munger?

I'm kinda thinking (if I attend Stanford) I'll end up staying at Stanford/Palo Alto first two years and then maybe move further a field; but Munger for a year seems like it might be nicer than not..?

Very scared of the bubble, though.

That would definitely be helpful! I am in Haiti right now, away from my mail (there isn't really any mail here) and with limited internet so all new information is appreciated by me!

Same thoughts.... I feel like it's the thing to do 1st year, and then after that you move on. Is everyone else getting this vibe?
