Ave Maria / So Who Made It?
« on: August 28, 2005, 04:45:20 PM »
So the week of orientation is all wrapped up here at Ave Maria and I was just wondering if all us Ave Maria-bound LSDers made it through ok and are still planning on getting up for classes in the morning.

Also, I'm currently in our beautiful school library right now, taking full advantage of the short break from studying I've permitted myself.

I don't know about you all but I love this school so far.  I can't remember any other time when I've felt so at home so fast.  The faculty and staff are even more impressive in person than they are on paper and the community in general is very warm and welcoming.  Definately thinking I made the right choice.  And I guess that's a good thing, since I've committed the next three years of my life to it.

Ok, back to Torts...

I am going too.  Just got back from my visit there this morning.  Definately looking forward to it!   :D

A few things:

I hope there is no class on Friday. 

Did everyone get this LAP Summer Workshop thing?  What is it?  Do I want to even do it?

It is lame that we are "forbidden"  to work during 1L.  It would have been nice to work, if only for 5-10 hours.

I got that workshop thing too.  I think I'm going to do it.
It couldn't hurt and it doesn't cost anything extra.

If I remember correctly, we are allowed to work during 1L.  Just not more than 20 hours a week.  So 5-10 hours would be ok.  ;)

Hi, everyone!

Looks like I'll be attending American this fall too.  I'm from Northern Virginia and graduated from George Mason a couple years ago.  I'm working on figuring out how to finance law school with lousy credit.

Question- anyone know when to expect our schedules?  One of the students at the Accepted Applicants event told me the school completely sets up class schedules for 1Ls.  I'm anxious to know what times I'll be in class.

Thanks and see you all soon!   ;)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: ave maria

I am an Ave Maria Law student so I may be able to offer a little insight.  There is some talk about a possible move in the future, but it is not decided and no one is going to tell you it's definately happening or definately not happening.  If they do move, they may phase it over there slowly so those students already attending in Michigan would remain in Michigan til graduation.  While it's a source of some contention, don't let that stop you from considering or visiting our school.  It is truly an outstanding legal education- and this from a student who is not politically conservative.  I know the impression people get is that everyone is of one mind, but we do have interesting and respectful debates and I get along with the people who don't agree with me on every topic.

I'm also receiving a full scholarship and it is quite a relief when you think about the years I won't be working to pay off those loans.

Additionally, I have already secured a summer job so it is not as difficult as you might think, coming from a new school.  Our reputation is beginning to precede us and people are saying good things.

Please email me with any further questions.  If you'd like to visit, I'd be happy to show you around.

Posting a poll on a website doesn't really prove much of anything.  We're not competing for recognition among people who know nothing about law schools.  Find someone who goes to Ave Maria or has graduated from here to say something negative about the school.  It's a lot harder to find criticsm from people who know what they're talking about.

You do know one can be both Catholic and liberal?  One is a religion, the other is a political identification that is fairly widely subjective.  Then of course there's Catholic and Mel Gibson/Tom Monaghan Catholic, which is a whole other story.  ;D

I am both Catholic and liberal.  I think around here Catholic and conservative tends to get lumped together.  I meant to differentiate between the conservative mainstream and the liberal minority.

Are you actually a Catholic Lane?


Explain the Ave Maria thing, if you will.  Isn't it like the den of Catholicism? 

It is, indeed. I did my graduate degree at a Catholic university (though not nearly as conservative as Ave) and I liked the approach. Figured I would try it for LS. Turns out Ave is a bit more Catholic than the school I went to, as well, but I'm not shunned (yet) or anything.

They have yet to read this board, apparently. 

Thank Buddha for that...

Some of us have.  Heehee

Honestly, there's this subculture of non-conservatives that seem to have sought each other out.  It starts by dropping the smallest of hints that you might not be totally opposed to all things liberal and it goes from there.  I'm happily existing in both the catholic and liberal crowds by keeping lots of secrets and it's kinda fun.  But the super-conservatives don't know who the outlanders are yet.

Intriguiing! I'm in B, too. Mysteries, mysteries. I don't know if I should blow my cover. I'm not exactly your typical Ave Maria student.

I'm blowing Lane's cover... In real life he's none other than Baywatch's very own David Hasselhoff.  Lookin' good, baby!   ;)

I'm in B.  Yeah, I was wondering which one you are too.   :)

Hmmm.... so at this very moment, we're both sitting in Property waiting for it to begin.

Not your typical Ave student.  I've met a few of those already.  Now I'm going to be trying to figure it out the next hour.

Well, I'm one of the girls, so that knocks out about 2/3 of the class for you.  :)
