They sent two shirts???


Yup. A general Stanford shirt came in one packet. A Stanford Law School shirt was in the packet with the other admissions material.



What? I have only one shirt and one packet to my name. I received the packet with the SLS folder, my acceptance letter, etc. What's in the other packet?


The other packet only had the general Stanford shirt. It looked liked it was shipped from an athletic clothing store.

Let's not kid ourselves, though--whatever we receive now will be supplemented by ware from the Stanford bookstore.

TOTALLY just realized this was last year's schedule. Really hoping some of the stuff stays the same (esp. sitting in on one of Karlan's or Sullivan's classes!).

Boy, I feel bad now. Not only did I lead people down the path of looking at the 2009 ASW agenda as if it was the 2010 ASW agenda, I also suggested I received two t-shirts from SLS. Well, turns out one of them was from a family friend. She just called to ask if I received her gift. My apologies for making anyone feel unloved!

I also didn't want folks to think Faye Deal sent extra shirts to her favorites.

FWIW, Admit Weekend will be substantially similar to last year's event, maybe even better in a few respects. Unfortunately, Karlan and Sullivan are teaching ConLaw I this quarter, and those taking ConLaw II next quarter (most of the 1Ls, I'm sure) will have different (but still awesome) profs. I'm not sure what classes will be available for visiting.

You can visit Sullivan this quarter, though, as I am!

I heard rumors of a golf outing at previous ASWs. Will that tradition be continuing this year?

Really? That sounds great. I played in HS, but I'm not particularly good anymore.

The Stanford Golf Course is awesome and we'll get to play it for $25 for the next three years. I'm looking forward to that.

They recently (last 6 years or so) redesigned it and there are now back-to-back par-3s on the front nine, which is a little weird, but man the back nine is so glorious.

Another reason for my dad to buy me new clubs. Awesome.

The pending snowstorm is causing hysteria out here on the East Coast. On the way home today, no doubt in a state of panic, people crammed into the metro train and the doors refused to close. The Metro train had to be entirely offloaded and then went out of service. I'm ready for Palo Alto.

Still havent heard anything yet. Kretzy and crackberry give me hope that its possible (almost identical numbers), but that hope is starting to fade. Stanford is my dream school!

Kretzy, did you right a LGBT diversity statement or just incorporate it into your PS?

I didn't. My PS talked at length about some antigay discrimination I've faced and my work with queer youth. I almost wrote a different DS about my cultural background (Cherokee/Hispanic), but decided brevity was best.

PM me if you wanna chat about PS stuff though!

I've been searching everywhere for the 1L curriculum at SLS. I want to know what classes are required in fall, winter, and spring quarters and how much room there is for choice. I love the idea of a 3 quarter/trimester system for law school, but I want to see what that actually means in terms of how many classes you take at once and how many required coruses/electives there are.

The course schedule on the admitted students site doesn't seem to make clear which classes are required and which are offered as electives:

https://www.stanford.edu/dept/law/admit/auth/courses.html

And the curriculum page on the general website only mentions two terms (autumn and spring) and fails to mention winter altogether:

http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/courses/#1st_year_curriculum

I'm very confused! Anyone know anything about SLS's first year curriculum? PM me, please!

Just got in today. All the golf talk is making me resent the snow a little more than usual.

PSA: A postcard-y note in the mail today about Admit Weekend. Not all that informative. Basically just says, "Go to the Web site to check for details."

Maybe the site has been updated with this year's schedule? Anyone check?

Nah, still has 2009's schedule up. Thanks for the heads up on the postcard.

when is ASW? I am hoping to get a decision before then, assuming it is not very soon.
