thanks for the info, clee750..

Philosphia.. I did call the office about that last week and she said that typically law students receive their refunds earlier than other students ( along with book credits) they have not released money yet, but will begin doing so at the end of July..

she also said we should be receiving emails when the money is released.

I agree New York would be a great place to hang out.. you can do the typical Time Square tour and then go up and hang in Harlem for a while (a lot of culture there and I just personally love the vibe)..

You can also do the Statue of liberty, Ellis Island..maybe catch a show on Broadway.. the list is endless.

I used to live right outside of DC in Northern VA.. lots of fun times there as well.. U Street is a great little hangout ( at least when I was there a few years back) and of course they have a number of "tourist" type of things to do..

Never been to Chi-town, it is on my short list though.

Whatever you decide, hope you have a great time!

So what did you do to brief the case for orientation?? I have never taken a pre-law class so I have no clue on where to even begin... any suggestions?

The summary that I've read for Law School Without Fear says that it introduces the concept of briefing.  I don't think you need to get all crazy and read the whole thing though.  Read some tips and some samples and you should be fine.  I would suggest spending more time with something like Getting to Maybe instead of wasting all of your time on Law School Without Fear.  GTM teaches exam prep and strategies, which I feel are much more useful.  From what I understand, briefing is something you can only learn by doing.  Furthermore, most law students abandon the practice of briefing every case about halfway through 1L.  It is an important skill to develop during this time, but once you have developed this ability, your time is better served elsewhere (i.e. exam prep).  Anyways, I would definitely take a look at the suggested reading, but if you have limited time, spend it on actually briefing the cases and reading the 7 chapters for RWA.  HTH

just FYI, you need to call the school to have them pull your in your confirmation regarding the entrance counseling.. I had taken the test as well, but it still showed as incomplete on gosolar. Once I called in they immediately updated it right while I was on the phone..

also, in case you have a note that says your promissory note hasn't been signed, I called today and they will be pulling those in on Monday.

on a different note, I received the assignment to brief the case prior to orientation, but have no clue where to begin... does the recommended reading of Law School without Fear assist with this or should I look for another book to purchase solely on briefing cases??

I too think this is going to be a crash course in the socratic method and would like to be prepared..

The financial aid is making me crazy as well.  Both for the Grad Plus and the fact that GoSolar hasn't reflected the fact that they've received my entrance counseling results.  :/.

I'm planning on making a personal visit to the office after I'm no longer working in a couple of weeks.

Btw, I went ahead and ordered the book we need for our RWA assignment.  It's not a small as I thought it would be.

Hello Fellow Classmates!!!

I am so eager to leave my job and go back to school full- time, yet extremely nervous as I am sure you all can relate.  I received a packet in the mail this weekend with misc information(panther card, summer reading recommendations, etc) has anyone else gotten this packet yet? What shocked me was the mentioning of an assignment we have to complete before orientation... anyone have any clue what it might be? I am so curious.

Trying to breath and relax, but as you know that is so much easier said then done... having the fate of my career sitting in an Admins hands is driving me a little crazy, and the more I see people getting their acceptances and moving into decision mode makes me a little nervous..

Does anyone know when GA State needs their deposit??
