# 2. . .joke, yes. . .kinda. :P  and professors/admin alike will use this as an excuse to make life complicated when as you say, it could be really easy.  Also, you'll find that in law school, what you think doesn't matter a whole lot. . .especially when it comes to professors/administration.

Orientation is tomorrow?  Get out there and meet lots of people!!  Go out with your section.  There might be an organized "bar review" and if so, be sure to go!!  Enjoy orientation! ;D

Everyone else. . .1 week of freedom.

because 1.) this is law school and they make everything complicated, 2.) you're an adult & 3.) professors are lazy. . .although, some professors will email syllabus/assignments when they have their class list.  when's orientation? because usually someone will tell you during orientation.  besides, advanced assignment isn't that intense anyway.

Haha

But also understand that the 1st day maybe the ONLY time you can do that and get away with it.

If you have Duvivier for civ pro, read the book/novel but don't worry too much about it, it will NOT be tested, EVER.

FYI. . .Email from SBA

"Beginning Thursday (August 7th) the bookstore will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-6 p.m., and Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

These hours are not permanent, and will most likely be adjusted once the school year begins. As soon as the Fall bookstore schedule is officially set an e-mail will be sent out. For your convenience, the hours will also be posted on the window of the store."

Hope you're enjoying your last week off before orientation/classes.

This summer went by so fast!

This page will make it so we don't have to use the thread on the admissions page. Bookmark this one.

How do we know which books that we have to purchase have a new edition this year without going to the bookstore? I am looking to get them online and save a ton of money, but it looks like all the cheap books I need to buy are last years edition. Do I just wait until I can go to the bookstore next week and check them out?

I would wait, it seems like some case books are updated every year, while others not updated for years, only way to tell is to go see what the book store has. I THINK there is a way to check online by course number, poke around on the bookstores website see if you can do this. I vageley rember doing it one year. Oh, as to buying used, be ware that some people will have highlighted the crap out of them with the LSC highlighter methoed, this could be helful or hurtful if they highjlighted the wrong stuff. Thus I would not buy used unless I could flip through it first. I like to be the first to mark up a book.

You could always just go by the SBA bookstore (4th floor of the law school).  They'll let you know when they're open.  They are used books and you can look through them before purchasing.  Con about relying on the SBA bookstore are that the books go fast and the hours suck.

Can you current student recommend which commercial study aids to purchase?  It seems like everyone has a different opinion, but I'd love yours!

It really depends on the professor.  Sometimes they'll even recommend a certain one.

patience is virtue. :P

on a more serious note, you'll get book info with enough time to order from amazon/half/etc.  if you're really anxious, go to the bookstore (or check bookstore website if you know the course number & prof) and see what books are required.  some professors wait til the last minute to put up their booklist so you may have to wait anyway.

well, better get back to work.  enjoy your summer!

By the way, I read on DU's website that the light rail pass is only good at certain stops in Denver. My wife and I are moving to Sante Fe/Mineral and I was wondering if I will be able to take the light rail for free from that far away?


The light rail pass is good for all stops on the light rail.  I have used my pass, and  been checked, on every light rail route.   Here is the website: http://www.du.edu/transcenter/#passes

 

REALLY?  That sucks.  In the past two years, I've never been asked to show my ID/pass.
