I'm pretty much flat broke until my loans disburse, so I won't be able to get any books until Monday.

Section 2 Group D

Con Law - Young
Civ Pro - Hansen
Crim Law - Sharlot
LR&W - Meyer

All the classes are in a block from 10am - 3pm, but I don't really get any days off although Thursday and Friday have only one class each. Could've been better, could've been worse.

You got that email too, huh? I signed up for the Levinson book because it seems like it might spark some interesting debate.

Also, I'm going to spend this Saturday and Sunday looking for a place in Austin. What should I expect to pay in Hyde Park for a studio or 1-bedroom? (It doesn't have to be pretty, I could live in a pool shed as long as it has Internet access and a campus bus stop.)

If you'll be sending out resumes for summer jobs, you can actually write your cover letters now.  If you personalize the cover letters, it takes more time than you think.  Since the resumes can first be sent out as you are hectically studying for finals, I should have just written them all up way ahead of time.  You should basically know now everything you'll put in initial mailers, since grades won't come out till mid-January to mid-February.  If you wait that long, you'll miss out on some job possibilities.  So those who have great undergraduate GPAs end up with a bit of an advantage.

Don't expect to get a paying job first summer, though.  Supposedly almost everyone is able to get paid for their second summer, though.  Consider alternatives such as summer school or a semester abroad over the summer your first year.

Sounds like I might already be falling behind in the first summer rat race. I'm a traditional applicant, so I don't have a much relevant work experience, and I'm also a splitter, so my undergraduate GPA is not exactly going to recommend me. I think I won't have much of a choice but to wait on first semester grades.

You have to re-register for the student board? That's weird. 0L reporting as ordered. Still haven't gotten an apartment, I was holding out in case one of my other waitlists rang me up. Just got my last rejections in this week, though, so a trip to Austin is definitely in the cards next weekend. A lot of my old undergrad friends from Texas A&M ended up there for grad school or jobs, so I won't be quite as uprooted as I would've been going out of state. And after four years in College Station, Austin looks an awful lot like paradise.
