Parking is difficult during the week, if you don't know your way around.

A gps or something will help if you don't know the area, but the sidestreets can get confusing if you don't have a good sense of direction. Free campus parking is do-able after 5:45pm Friday and till Monday morning.

Fortunately, the law school is one the less-crowded side of campus. You should be able to find parking by St. David's hospital (in the general area, obviously not at the hospital itself) and walk to the law school. There are parking meters by the school that I believe become free during nights/weekends/holidays but I am not 100% of this as the school just changed the type of meters they use.

All in all, Austin is extremely easy to navigate. We have two main highways (I-35 and MoPac/Loop1). Guadalupe (the drag) and Lamar run North and South (in addition to I-35 and MoPac) and the numbered streets run East to West. Once you get downtown a lot of streets are one way but they alternate (ex: 6th runs West but 5th and 7th run East.)

Is it still free weekend parking along Dean Keeton? Those new parking-pass machines confuse me.

Yeah, parking on Dean Keeton east of San Jac is free on weekends and after 5:30 PM on weekdays, you just have to back in at an angle...which some people fail at hilariously :lol:

Lol I park by the 27th street garage most of the times I can find a spot, and I usually fail at parallel parking. Backing up wouldn't be so bad if I didnt have like 100% tint. Parking on campus is always a huge headache though in my opinion.

Lol

Every once in a while some douche manages to pull his car front first into one of those spaces. I need to take a picture next time it happens for a fail banner.

Besides the fact that whoever parked head-in on Dean Keeton had to really work to make their fail come true, I think it also has something to do with the fact that everyday traffic on Dean Keeton is a 10-car, 5-bicycle, 3-bus pileup waiting to happen - a situation which would be intensely aggravated by some asshole backing blindly out of a back-in, angled parking space...

Ya I can see how it would be a problem. I've never noticed traffic on Dean Keeton to be that bad, but I only came through there between 12-5o'clock.

The eastbound stretch right out front of the law school is by far the worst part of the street. To a car parked there, the traffic comes over the hill and curve blindly, and usually speeding at 40 MPH. :|

What is everyone thinking about the UT@UT day v. the general ASD?

Which are you leaning towards? What about attending both (especially if you are in the Austin area)?

I'm going to the UT@UT program, and I might do the 'Experience Texas' ASD for a free meal and goodies (they give out goodies--right?). I just think the UT@UT thing would be better for people familar with the campus and culture of UT.

I was thinking both but am starting to think the ASD might be kind of boring with a lot of "welcome to Austin and UT culture" material. They should just point out where Amy's is and call it a wrap.

UT@UT has FREE amy's icecream during lunch. I know going to UT for undergrad was the right choice!

EDIT: There's a schedule for the UT@UT event, anyone know of one for the regular ASD? It seems the only think special about the UT@UT event is the 'Transitioning from UT to UT Law' hour-long event.

Everyone got a fajita lunch and Amy's at ASD last year. Most lunch tables had a faculty member there for people to ask Q's. Dean Sager talked a lot and answers lots of questions. And there was a mock class. It was basically like a mini-orientation. It was fun.

So I can get 2 free servings of Amy's by going to both ASDs? Score!

I'm not able to make the ASD, but UT is on my top schools list, so I definitely want to visit. Thoughts on whether it would it be more beneficial to tour the school, sit in on a class, etc., on a Friday or Monday morning?

Friday would be less crowded around campus, and you can also experience a little bit of the life in Austin Friday night.

HaHa exactly! You can see what you won't have time for!
