OK it has to be everyone going to michigan gay?!?!?  this now borders on hilarious.  8)

man i was wondering that too...i want a joint JD/MRS degree and this doesn't look promising at Mich.  :( :)

There are fewer of us than it appears, but we are the coolest ones here and thus more apparent.  So, your misunderstanding is justified.

I am currently trying for the JD / MD-Husband program... and it's not promising.

Far out.  This entire crew was at Aut Bar as well (and lots of folks did the party/netco as well), and it's not exactly a large place.  Maybe some of us were grinding on your thigh and didn't know it...

Yeah I think I recognize you.  I'll PM you my facebook.

thenextstep - I think you know him, but I could be wrong.  PM sent. 

But I don't think I saw him around ASW at all, so maybe he's just our Man of Mystery. ;)

I was basically only hanging out with Outlaw prospies, but I was there.

Glad to know so many of you had a good time.  For the record... we weren't putting on a show by getting you all drunk.  That's how it is here.  :)

Law School Applications / Re: Bored Michigan student taking questions...

I was recently accepted at UM and had a few questions about housing, the campus, the student body as a whole, and recruitment.  Fitness is of paramount importance to me and I see that the main gym appears to be a good distance from the Lawyers Club and Law School.  Can anyone tell me about how far a walk it is and if they run shuttles to the gym?  Also I am aware there is a Gold's Gym in AA, how far is that from the law school and how is housing near Golds?

My next question is about the Lawyers Club - what are your thoughts about that?  I am assuming it enables you to make fantastic friends, but it seems to have some downfalls - closed during Thanksgiving, Winter Break, and Summer (meaning I have to leave) and no parking.  Do the positives outweight the negatives?  If you do not live in the LC will you still be able to make very close friends or does it become more like a job where you show up say hello, go home, and repeat?

Next, do the other schools such as the business school or undergrad interact with the law students (i.e. did you make friends that are not going to be lawyers?)  Are the non law schools welcomed around the LC and the Law school?  I just ask because I'd like to take advantage of the large University setting and make friends in all sorts of discplines.

Finally, I am interested in business law and I am not 100% sure if I'd go the law firm route.  When the companies that recruit the MBAs come are the Law Schools allowed to go to the interviews and events as well?  Hopefully that made sense, but in otherwords is it easy for UM Law Student to interview with companies other than firms and government organizations?

Thank you all for your wonderful discussion on this thread, UM should borrow the talk on here and make it an FAQ booklet!

There are two university gyms about the same distance from the law school. It's about a 7 minute walk.  10 if you're slow.  There aren't "shuttles" to the gym, but the city has a pretty good bus system, which is free for students.  I have no idea where Gold's is.

You don't have to leave the LC during Thanksgiving.  They don't serve meals, though.  I love the LC.  I've made lots of friends outside my section.  I never would have met them.  It's also nice to be able to concentrate on school without having to cook, clean bathrooms, etc.  I am definitely living here next year.

Other grad schools at UM do interact with the law school.  There are occasional "mixers," etc.  Student groups are generally the best way to interact.  They seem to have events with their corresponding groups at other grad schools, depending on the group.  You can take classes in other grad schools after your 1L year.  It's easy to get approval. 

I doubt the business school would let you in on their on campus interviewing.  But... it's not like you're going to have trouble finding a job.
