Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Michigan 1L Taking Questions
« on: May 18, 2007, 08:59:19 AM »
There are old exams online at the Law Library, but you need your UM ID# to get access.  I'm not sure when your access kicks in.  There are also paper copies for many profs as well (especially older exams).  Some organizations have copies of old exams and many have people's outlines from previous semesters.

I think the LC is closed for the summer but some students not living there got meal plans - but few.  Most of us brought food or went out, more often bringing food to save money.  Once fall starts you'll have lunch events with food nearly everyday.  Summer may have some, Stacy might know.  The snackbar is pretty hoppin' during the fall/winter, but I imagine the nice summer weather lends itself more to picnics on the quad.

Detroit has some weekly magazines - MetroTimes comes to mind but there are others.  You can find them around A2 as well.

Get back to work Jolie =) 

Jolie's dogs are pretty great dogs, I am just totally not a dog person so they sort of scare me with their energy.  Small dogs though... I can get behind that because they are smaller than me.

Yes, PLEASE get health insurance! 

Hey are any of you soon-to-be-1Ls potentially interested in an internship for credit (1 class worth, 2-3 credits) with the State Legislature (probably with a committee or two, you'd go one or two days a week to Lansing)?  I'm working on developing an institutional program where students would not have to do all the logistical stuff themselves but could just apply and get it as a class.  Trying to gauge interest from incoming students and figured you were all good people to ask.  It's cool if you aren't interested, don't feel pressured to say yes unless you really might consider it.  I think the program might also help people find summer work but right now I'm looking at interest for interning for credit.  Who knows if this will be able to happen while we are all here, but I'll try really hard!  Hope you are all getting pumped about coming here!

We don't rank and don't do an honor roll so I have no idea where most non-trads fall vs. trad students, but all of the merit awards that I know about (like a book award - no book given though, for the highest grade in a course) went to people who were somewhat non-trad but nothing too unusual (couple years work experience or longer than normal undergrad time, that kind of thing...) but generally they were trad students. 

But anyway, back on topic to say.... YAY for those that are done!!  Over and over it is exciting to be done with 1L!!  And keep on truckin' to those who are close - we soon will all be 2Ls (and hooray for the now-3Ls!)!!  Also, so glad I'm not doing the writing competition - have other plans and really glad to be actually done - but good luck to those that are!

If I wasn\'t broken by my current UG, I doubt I\'ll be broken by Michigan.  It seems a little more conservative than where I\'m at actaully.

It really is not too bad.  You can easily find people who are like minded.  What frustrates me is that when views are expressed in class, its always the left leaning students who scoff the most.  Usually the conservative students are very respectful.  I thought we on the left are supposed to be accepting of all viewpoints?

We must not be in the same section, because I find it to be the opposite completely.  Though I will grant that most people are on the left side of things, this is definitely true.  But in my section this semester it is the conservative students who have gotten all high and mighty, and for the most part the liberal students have stayed relatively quiet on political issues.  But it is all a perspective thing so might depend on where you fall yourself.

Outlaws is very welcoming of all sorts of people - so long as they aren't homophobic I think.  We definitely have allies though, in fact even on the board of the organization.  It is mostly gay boys and lesbian women but there are even a few bi people as well =)  It's a party of fun people for sure.  So you are all welcome (unless you are not down with that, in which case... well hopefully you'll come around).

I'll put in a plug for Chase as a bank, especially if you are thinking about sticking around the midwest.  They are a big bank up this way.  Anyway they were super helpful when we got here for our condo closing and were idiotically unprepared - they stayed after business hours to get it all worked out with us!  Plus they have lots of branches and an ATM near the ERC and Ulrich's on S. Univ.  Anyway, I know most people use TCF but few people have nice things to say about them.  Plus I hear they have TONS of fees, which is lame.  I like credit unions too, so that's a good option.

Oh and meow... my cat is desparately trying to type to you all but she's not that talented.
