Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Thoughts on Texas' ASD?

This is just speculation but the difference could be attributable to (i) resume drops

This is true... I participated in OCI at UT this fall and the employer spreadsheet document provided by the CSO (I'm assuming we're talking about the same document) included firms that were requesting resume drops but not screening on campus.

Yep... and I think they're still offering SJG permits.  Weird, considering the post on Freshlaw claiming that it's "extremely difficult" to get in.

Felsen, did you have Berman for anything?  Or heard anything about him?

i'm not felsen, but i thought i would pipe in here.

last year berman taught con law, not crim.  i had him for con law during the fall and found him to be a great prof and, once you get over the initial fright, a real funny guy.  he assigned more reading than any other prof that taught my section (it was all unedited cases, no case book) which left everyone moaning and groaning.  i suspect that his no casebook policy is limited to con law.

my 17 inch laptop is the only thing i'd change about my first year of law school.

lugging it around got old but the worst part was cramped workspace in class.

For the record, Margee, I'm in your section and it wasn't that bad.  It was over quickly and I bet no one remembers it (I only do because I have a stage-fright thing going about talking in that class, or any class for that matter).

I have a friend who transferred from Davis to UCLA (a couple of years ago) and was very happy with the result.

Don't give us a bad name!

Hey now, don't assume.  There's nothing wrong with a good strip club as far as I'm concerned.  I'm not hating on the myspace group...

but I'm still looking for a good dance studio.  Thanks Tonyp!  I'll check it out.

Margee, if you're on the myspace group I noticed that one of the users in the UTLaw2009 group there was also asking if anyone was interested in dance. You should check it out!

I was the one looking for dance studios via the myspace group but I haven't come up with any leads (of course, I was offered referrals to various strip clubs in response to my question).  Margee, I'll let you know if I hear of anything promising.  Please do the same :)

We talked about it briefly either here on these boards or the official ones.

In order to get into SJG first semester, you're supposed to go in on August 1st and buy a summer pass as the reduced price for the last month.  You can then go online and renew for the Fall semester and request a transfer to SJG.  So for a little while, I had a MRG pass before I got transferred for the Fall semester.

You have a second chance once you renew for Spring semester, but I have no clue how many openings there will be at that time.  Also note that those of us with SJG passes will basically have to pay for year round parking til we graduate, or we'll have to take a change on the transfer system again.

I thought someone was mentioning they were able to buy a SJG pass directly after the renewal period was over.  If you weren't able to, it must have been a very small window for doing that.

I didn't buy a MRG pass over the summer but I was able to log onto the PTS website and buy a SJG permit about a week ago without a hitch.  Probably just dumb luck based on all the hype I've seen on the message boards.
