I just had to point out that my Civil Procedure prof, Dennis Olson, who will teach Section 4, created a facebook profile.  Isn't that hilarious?  Bet they don't do that at Harvard!  I added him as a friend; perhaps it will help.

Defintely had a good time meeting "y'all."  Everyone seemed very friendly and personable.  And--the Cowboys still stink.   :P

Chimmy's is right next to the Cold Stone Cremery, near the Varsity bookstore. It's downtown on Broadway and University. I don't know how much clearer I can be.  My number is 724.466.6660 in case anyone get's lost.  God help your soul if you do.  How bout 7pm?   

Aron, were you attempting to say I look like Farris Bueller?  >:(

As far as you "UTSassy," Kyle said to ask if you're hot...I mean, and, what is your name? Chimmy's can be a bar, or a restaurant, or whatever you want it to be, baby. I hear they have good maragaritas. 

Oh by the way, I'm drunk.  So if anyone is offended by my comments, oh well.

How about meeting Saturday?  I'm guessing everyone should be in by then.  Perhaps we can meet at the place called Chimmy's, down on University Avenue?  I hear that's the marquee place for law students around here.  I hear they have good, meaning strong, margaritats, or something. 

Oh, by the way, you guys are losers for not being cool and getting your ID like me.  HAHA!

Hey everyone!  I've officially been a resident of Lubbock since Wed., but the hard drive crashed on my computer meaning I couldn't post on here.  I'm waiting for one from Gateway as we speak.  Right now, I'm actually on campus using the computers in the Student Union building.  I got my student ID picture taken too while I was down here.  Stopped at Varsity books and bought a few more of my books as well. 

My apartment is awesome! Nice size, in a great location: Wal-Mart, Bars, Shopping Center, Grocery Store all practically within walking distance. 

If anyone wants to hang out this week, my cell phone number is 724.466.6660.  Don't know when everyone else is getting down here, but the roommate doesn't get here till Monday, so some company would be nice!  Peace!

I'm  out of here on Tuesday.  Going away/graduation party for me tomorrow, loading the uhaul on monday, leaving for Lubbock on Tuesday.  Should be arriving about 12 noon on Wed.

Can someone fill me in on what the packet contains?  I have yet to receive mine, and I am quite curious.

Aron,
Most of the books I found used online had almost no markings in them at all.  I've receieved five, and they've all been pristine.  If you go onto websites like half.com, the sellers must tell you in what condition the book(s) are.  If someone says that the book has highlighting from cover to cover, for example, then you don't buy the book; as did I.  It's a good way to save money. 

I would say that a new laptop isn't necessary for law school: the main program you're going to be using is Microsoft Word, a program that a 1992 Pentium 1 computer can run easily. 


If I were you guys I'd be skeptical of buying that Getting to Maybe book.  Often times, I've read, law school professors will contribute to a particular text and then require his or her students to buy it so that he or she may collect the royalties.  Chances are, you'll probably never use it in class. 


Woohoo! I'll have some people to hang out with until Kyle gets there on the 7th of Aug.

12 days in counting...

Me 3!

You can buy the Federal Rules of Civ Pro book at the bookstore for like $12.  It's probably not worth ordering it online for a number of reasons: 1) you need the most recent version, which I could not find online, and 2) with shipping, you're not going to get it used for any cheaper than that anyway.  It's a thin pamphlet type thing.  

Oh and by the way, I ordered all of legal practice books online already, since they are the same for every section.  They finished arriving yesterday, and they're pretty much English books.  Two of the five are English Grammar, writing only: not a hint of law in them.  Interesting.

I think it said you need to wait till August to sign up for the laptop class.  I've been told by a 2L I've been talking to that the class is very useful; it's something that probably everyone should do.  Those who don't sign up for it can try to schedule an appointment on their own to familiarize themself with the network, but those are hard to come by. 

Kyle went to South Padre Island, and he posted pictures of courthouses? Tell me what's wrong with this picture? jk. lol  :P

Will be moved into Lubbock at Willow Hill on June 27th: 13 days from now.  Who's gonna be there with me?  I'm going to bored as hell for the first week.   ???

Hey everyone...

I believe we can buy our books now, but the lady at the law school said they could re-section us at any time, so you could get screwed if you buy them online.  Although, I believe this is just an effort to deter us from buying anywhere but the campus bookstore; I found my books, at least, to be 550 at the campus one, and 260 online, so you be the judge of where to buy them.  I'd say it'd probably be a good idea to wait until the beginning of August though, just to be safe. 

Who, and how, can you get books "cut and re-bound" ?

Looks like no one else is in Section 3, huh?  I think a few of you were in Knolton's Legal Practice class though? 

Does anyone know if our sections will stay the same in the Spring, i.e., we can find our schedules for the spring too by looking at the schedule?
