Don't worry about the workload, it will start kicking in soon. Also, next semester you will have the appellate brief to occupy a lot of your time.

I am a second year. I like living in Kenwood Gardens. The apartments are rather plain, but they are very close to the school and well priced (you do have to pay for utilities though). The people at the complex are nice and I just brought my cats out after a year. ($150 per animal nonrefundable fee and a monthly charge of $10 per animal but it is worth it.)

I had Bruce Kennedy for Property I. He is really good and very accessible.  He gives a midterm on estates.I did better on the midterm than on the final, but I did fine overall.
Johnny Parker is also very good. He used to be a motivational speaker and does go off on tangents about life as a lawyer and life in general. I am taking him now so I can't say anything about his final except he lets you know how you should approach the essays.
Have not had Tierney, but I hear he is good too.

I live in a place that is pretty plain, but I like it because the rent is cheap. $395 per month. But you have to pay for electricity and gas. Also it is about 3 minutes away from campus. My friend lives about 10 minutes away in a much nicer (has washer and dryer in each apartment instead of just each apartment building) But I cannot remember the name of it.  There are also some nice apartments about 20 minutes away.
As for grades, it took almost a month, but I did fine.
We just had our dean demoted to professor, but it is supposedly not performance based. Just that they could not agree on a contract, so his deanship was not renewed.
Good Luck to those coming to Toledo this fall.

I am just finishing up my first year at Toledo. I am enjoying it. The city has nice parts and not so nice parts like any city. The professors are very helpful and the classes are good sizes.The classrooms are nice, all set up with smartboards. So I would recommend the place.

In CivPro this morning, a student left to go to the restroom. His phone rang and the professor answered it for him. Cool. Just a funny incident to break the tension of the appellate brief being done

Our brief was whether public high school officials were entitled to practice viewpoint discrimination with respect to the school newspaper. The paper in our brief was distinguished from the newspaper in Hazelwood in several ways.  It is due Friday.
