My class schedule recently appeared on Wolverine Access!  Based on comparing it to the registrar's schedule, I'm in H.

I have Diller, Frier, Miller, and Wilensky.  Anything notable or special I should know about any of them?

Well, Frier (along with J.J. White, my Contracts professor) wrote your Contracts casebook.  That's all I know about him, and I know nothing about any of the others. 

That means you'll have Sherman Clark in the Winter for Torts, and you'll love him.  Eve Brensike Primus is an absolute genius, and is supposed to be incredible Criminal Law professor. 


Frier is GREAT.  He's very witty and has a really dry sense of humor.  He also wears a different ridiculous sweater to class everyday.

Frier IS Tim Gunn.  The look, the voice, everything.  Well, Tim would never wear those sweaters, but maybe that's just his cover.  My 1L year, we kept waiting for him to walk in and say, "Law students make it work!"  Also, he's not a JD.  He has a PhD in Classics, and he'll still whoop your ass in Contracts.  I heart him.

Also, I hate packing.

Also, how am I already a 3L?  It goes fast, my friends.

Good luck on that drive tomorrow!  tell my roommate that I love her and I'm excited that she's finally getting out of the worst professional baseball city in the US! ;)

>:(  I rescind all previously proffered love for you and am going to tell my firm not to hire your Greek ass. 

(j/k, y'all.  I heart Bouzie and don't hold him responsible for his heinous sports loyalties.)

 
I'm in M! No Clark or Primus, but no 8:00 class!

YAY MNOP!  Most Nights Out Partying is the section to be in.  Not to be confused with Every f-ing Gunner Here and I Just Know Little.

Question for the current students: a couple of the classes are scheduled five days a week but say they will meet an average of four days a week.  How does this work out during the semester?

Bascially you'll never meet fridays but the profs have the block reserved just in case they need to schedule make up classes or whatever.

Why are people so bothered by 8:00 classes? 

By the way, have you all noticed that first day assignments and syllabi are posted?

Could somebody please point me toward the syllabi/course assignments? Is it on Wolverine Access or somewhere else?

I don't know why I can't find it, but I do know that if you all weren't so nice I'd feel stupid already :)
