I don't remember that there were any 1L classes where every professor used the same book (maybe Legal Methods?), but if it works out for you, more power to you.  :)

The yellow crap does go away.  This is the absolute worst time for it, unfortunately.

Easier said than done in the fall of 1L (you will not get your section assignments until practically the last minute, so you won't know which books to buy).  After that, yeah, definitely buy online.

Oh yeah, you can park right there.  Here's a tip - go in there as soon as you get your section assignments and get your books, that way there will only be a few people and with luck you may be able to partake of the limited supply of used textbooks.

I agree about the wildly varying quality of the E&E's.  As everyone has said, the two Glannon ones are good to give you a basic understanding of the subject.  The rest... eh.

Everyone has their own preferences about which type of study aid they find most useful.  After much experimenting, I have also found hornbooks to be most helpful.  What I generally do is ask the professor on the first day which hornbook they think is best (usually I don't have to, upperclass professors will often volunteer which hornbooks they recommend) and then get that, and read the appropriate sections after we go over them to figure out what it was that I was supposed to have learned.  (This is especially helpful in those few classes where the prof still uses the Socratic method, which as you will learn is actually intended to obfuscate, not educate.)

Since you're here in town, you could go to Law School Follies tonight, which will definitely give you an alternative view of the law school.  Most of it will probably be incomprehensible to you, because it's generally making fun of people that every law student knows, but people in the real world don't.  Lots of beer, though.  But don't take anything you hear/see too seriously.

It's actually off campus, basically in Emory Village, right next to the Falafel King (now with sushi!).

There's also a big main university bookstore kinda of in the middle of campus (I have been there precisely once), which has all sorts of Emory schwag.  But you'll get all your books at the law school bookstore, or online after fall of 1L year.

We share the bookstore with other schools?  News to me.

One question: What's up with MARTA access?  Do we get free transportation around the entire city via MARTA by just flashing our Emory ID?

No.  I think maybe you can get a student discount if you use it a lot, but hardly anyone does.

I love know-it-all 0Ls. 

I especially love thinking of all the hard lessons they're going to learn over the next 13 months.
