Here's a novel way to resolve this, the same way the men do....find a husband that wants to stay at home and raise his kids. 
And there's plenty that will! Mine plans on it, and his friend said he would do that same thing if he was with a girl who was in a career like this. I feel lucky.  ;)

Dear Incoming Student:

We hope that you are enjoying your summer and are looking forward to the start of classes.

Enclosed you will find a First Year Program Selection Form. Please complete and return the form
to the Admissions Office no later than July 22nd in order to ensure that your tuition bill reflects the
correct charges and that you will be registered for the correct number of classes. If you prefer, you can
complete the form online and submit it to our office through the Admitted Student Website (ASW). The
Program Selection Form can be found on the “Forms” page of the ASW. Evening students who are
undecided about which program to choose are encouraged to view the curriculum and course information
on the ASW.

The Law School does not require students to have a computer, however the faculty and
administration strongly recommend that each student have a computer. Information on technology and
computer use at the law school has recently been added to the ASW under “Library and Technology” This
includes information on the recommended computer configuration for those of you planning to purchase a
computer as well as information about the use of computers at the law school to help you determine if you
should have a desktop or notebook computer.

The tuition rates for the 2005-2006 academic year are now available on the ASW. As you will
see, Temple Law School remains one of the best values in legal education.

In order to protect the privacy of your Social Security Number (SSN), Temple University has
assigned a unique Temple University identification number to all students. Your new TUid will become
Temple’s primary way of identifying you. With this new ID in place, your Social Security number will no
longer be required for routine administrative functions except those required by law, including tax
purposes. All TUid numbers begin with the number 9 and will appear on your Owl Card, the photo
identification card issued to all students. Your TUid number will be sent to you via e-mail within the next

In the coming weeks you will receive additional information including how to access your Temple
Law AccessNet account which included e-mail, the incoming class listserv and the first week of classes.
In the meantime, you are certainly welcome to stop in and visit the law school or call us with any
questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you at registration on August 22nd.

Director of Admissions, Financial Aid
and Enrollment Management

But let's get this place going!  ;D I figure it was worth posting the link to the yahoo group here in case anyone can't find the link elsewhere in the pre-law board. So here it is- the incoming 2005 Temple Law class yahoo group- join now!

(much thanks to JDubs for starting this group!)

This is all pretty much what I was hoping to hear... I can just buy what I'm going to be comfortable on the train in! Thankfully my parents bought me two nice suits as a graduation present, so I should be set... at least until I get a real job.  :P Thanks for the great info!

Gotta go with the Mini's, though I want a green one with an american flag on the roof.  ;D

Yeah, but the way in which you get drunk (after work, with coworkers, staying out really late, all of it being an unwritten requirement of the kaisho culture) has tended to put some strain on one's family life, no?  Remember, this is the country where karoshi became a serious concern during the 1980s.

And these are among the many reasons why I found the Tokugawa period more fun.  ;D
Oh, absolutely. And it still is a concern, undoubtably. It never ceases to amaze me how varied the world's various cultures are when it comes to work. From France with the less than 40 work week, the US with the guideline 40 that has rapidly become more, to Japan, where work is life for many people.

The Tokugawa period is *very* fun to study, particularly compared to the Meiji era, but I even prefer going farther back into the Heian period. I loved reading the Tale of Genji.

Um.  I don't know whether or not some professors will TOLERATE skipping class.  I'm sure there must be some professors who care about attendance, no matter what they profess.   ::)
Right. Don't most schools have an attendance policy? Temple professes strict adherence to 80% minimum attendance... but effed if I know how they enforce it (yet, at least)
