I wish they had let the sections get together a little more during orientation, instead of it being broken up by LW sections.

I'm on the lookout for Betasteve. No idea what he looks, but he was a mentor, so that narrows it down.


I assume that you spotted me as I strolled into class 15 minutes late. I guess class doesn't start at 9:30, haha.

I recognized your devilish sexiness from some picture or another.

For those who bought the evening LRWA Student Manual--does your copy have a tab 21?

There's a tab 21 listed on the table of contents but my tabs stop at 20.

I have the Student Manual for day students, and it also lists tab 21, but the tab nor the contents are in my binder.

Thanks for checking--at least mine isn't the only one.

Did any of you use citations in this summer diag thing? I pretty much shot from the hip after reading the source materials, considering everyone who's done it before says it's more to see if you can write a coherent sentence than anything.

I did not. I referenced the cases but did not pull directly from them.

No need to try to use citations. You aren't expected to know how.

I know how. I just didn't feel like expending the effort on a non-graded assignment.

Shouldn't we move our conversations to the law student forum? Just wondering since you know...we are students now...and there is a new thread.

SMU-specific discussion to the Class of 2013 thread, probably.

Hello all,

Sorry for resurrecting this thread. I am wondering how many of you from last year's cycle were admitted or denied after originally being "held for further review" and when you finally heard back. Thanks!

Welp, just what I wanted to see while toiling away on my brief. According to the new US NEWS and World Report only 66% of our graduates are employed at graduation? So one in three of us will be unemployed when we get our diplomas?

This is compared to 91% employed for UT and even 75% at UH??? Am I missing something?

That is not exactly the encouragement I was looking for.

Yikes...just saw that as well. Do you think it could be any correlation with a lower TX bar passage rate this year (I think it was around 83% IIRC)

Also...Baylor- 46.9% employed at graduation. Ouch.

EDIT- Also, #30 Emory- 65% and #47 Tulane- 53%

Houston has survived ITE a little bit better than Dallas (energy sector FTW!).

How is everybody seeing the employment data? I'm seeing subscription only links.
