Welp. After attending both the Dodger Stadium thing and the Admitted Students thing, I'm 90% sure I'm headed here. You other admitted students were pretty damned cool.
Glad you enjoyed it! Sad I missed it. Would you mind sharing some of the particulars for those of us that were unable to attend?
+1. Attending, but from Boston, so couldn't make it. Been a crazy week here.
Sure. There wasn't any information shared that people on here didn't already know (though one 2L did say to stay off TLS and Above the Law, hah)
All of the professors I met were outgoing and personable. They were available and willing to answer any questions posed, and seemed to mingle with the prospectives with ease. I ended up having half hour to 45 minute conversations with four or five profs. I think I'm buying the party line that the profs there care deeply about their students. And the prof that taught my mock class (they divided us up into two groups, by alphabet. I had Levensen, I don't remember who the other group had) was VERY engaging. They all talk about how much they care about teaching well, so I'm sure they picked the best teachers for the showcase. But nonetheless, she was very good.
The student panel (a 3L, 2 2L's, and 2 1L's) was halfway interesting. All five seemed to be having the successes they hoped for, and each had something lined up for either the summer (1L's) or post-grad life (the rest). I'm sure that was intentional on the part of LLS, too, but still. It's good to see. No earth shattering information was shared though (some outlined all semester, others started halfway through, some preferred the morning section, others the afternoon, library hours increase the closer to finals, blah blah blah).
And the other admitted students were a very sociable lot. I met a bunch of people at the Dodger Stadium thing, and we all ended up finding each other at the Friday thing. A group of us went out downtown together afterwards. Current students mingled with us during the social part of the event. It was all just very friendly. And the food from the food trucks was surprisingly solid.
That said, the swag SUCKED. Oh well.
If anyone had any specific questions, feel free to PM me.
Oh, and I went on the campus tour which was just whatever. I mean, the big lecture halls where 1L classes are held in are nicer than some of the awful bunker things I've seen, and the whole Gehry bit is kinda cool, but none of this was anything to write home about. They have some courtrooms, and apparently an active basketball and ping pong culture, if either of those are your bag.
