All right, thanks guys.  I saw Thursday was a bar night, and I didn't know if it would be something similar or different on Friday.

Definitely take advantage of bar night. It was pretty fun... the whole ASW was really fun actually. Initially it was awkward b/c they kept throwing you into social situations where you didn't know anyone but had to socialize anyway. By the second day, I was pretty used to striking up conversations with strangers and had a little group to hang out with. I totally had a blast though-- there's a really good Thai restaurant we went to but I can't remember the name...

This brings to mind something that I would like the April ASWers to keep in their thoughts as the weekend progresses. 

The time will fly by--the March ASW was not nearly long enough--so make sure that you don't blink.  If you find yourself enjoying something or someone for too long, you will find that you have missed something else.  Of course some of that is to be expected, but understand the opportunity cost of each thing you choose to do.  Tetris is a good example of this, at least for me.  I had so many things going on that I didn't really get a chance to speak with him very much.  I always felt like I would have time after I finished whatever I was doing at the time, but all of a sudden it was time to go home and I had hardly done any more than say "hi" and move on.  The same is true of the LSDers that I failed to identify.  I did get to speak to several of the people I was hoping to meet, but there are even more that I never found. 

Enjoy yourselves--it will be a great time, and you will meet some wonderful people.  If you get a chance, sit in on Professor Primus' ConLaw class.  I skipped the Financial Aid panel to see him teach, and I talked someone else into doing the same, because it was the best way to answer the question, "Is this going to be worth the cost?"  (And the answer, at least judging from that class, is a definite, "Yes!")

Heh, everyone loves Professor Primus as long as you don't have to answer any of his questions. Our Con Law class is the 'official' sit-in class for this preview weekend (we're moving to a different place and time on Friday to accommodate), so no one has any excuses not to come.

I was telling my wife that he is the type of professor that you really want to talk to for about a minute and a half.  After that, you are sure to say something stupid and ruin the whole thing.

And yes, I have said the same thing several times a day for quite a while now.  "Holy *&^%!  I'm going to Michigan!"

TITCR... well, I don't mind some of his questions... but the worst feeling in the world is when he looks around, then settles on you and says "Ms. _____.... (long pause allowing me time to get really really nervous).... was _____ v. ______ rightly decided?" And then when you give your "yes" or "no" answer, he says "Oh really? Why?" And then your head says "I don't know, you tell me, that's why I'm paying $1 million dollars per year to be here," but your mouth starts mumbling some BS about balancing this right v. that right, etc...

The only thing worse than that is when someone doesn't answer the question and he gives us a lecture about not answering the question we're asked :P

Oh also if you want to meet a lot of Michigan LSD 1Ls come to Necto on Friday night - it's an Outlaws event - but a lot of us will be there, due to either being gay, being friends w/ someone who is having her bday going out night at a gay club b/c she is awesome, or both.

Anyway, last year a ton of Michigan LSDers went to Necto and it was crazy fun. So you should come.

/shameless plug for Outlaws stuff

The "official" ASW event for Friday is the SQUALSA Old Person gathering at Leopold's.  Discuss.  :D
