General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: HLS

kiyakoiya, unless I missed it, it never said anywhere that the Section 4 reading is from Problems in Contract Law, but that's what I assumed.

The first chapter of the assigned reading is called "An Introduction to the Study of Contract Law" and the second chapter is called "Enforcing Promises: Bases of Legal Obligation".  Maybe you could check those titles with what's in the casebook.   

The relevant pages were included w/ the section letter in xeroxed form (without any markings to indicate what book they were taken from, as far as I could tell).  I'd also guess that they're from the case book, but I'm not 100 % sure.

So, all my mail for the last month or so is lost somewhere in the postal system, so I never received my section letter.  Could someone in section 4 tell me anything useful that was in the letter (specifically the reading assignment)?  Thanks!

The assignment is pages 1-15 & 25-40 for the first class (Thurs.) and pages 40-59 for Fri.  Thanks for digging up those old exams!

Section 4 people:  Ok, I can't find the exam for Cleveland, but I got the evals.  Overwhelmingly positive, but with some complaints that she let students ask too many stupid questions or offer up crazy hypos.  Apparently she uses A Civil Action to illustrate things.

I've been away most of the summer, but my mom called to tell me I'm in Section 4 also.  My little brother laughed his ass off about the fact that I already have homework...


Catch you in Contracts, then.

Section 4 here too.

Does anyone know if it will be possible for those of us living in North Hall to get parking in that lot? I didn't see anything about it on the parking website, but my tour guide at the school mentioned that it was possible to get parking there.

I remember seeeing something on the parking info site (or perhaps in with the parking application instructions?  i'm not sure) stating that if you can provide proof of your residence in North, you are eligible for surface lot parking there as long as it is available.  I think it was also slightly less expensive than the standard garage rates for students.

Glad to be able to post on this thread :)

For those of you living in the dorms, is anyone bringing a car?  Is there available street parking by the school, or are there lots, or maybe reasonably priced private garages?

Hey steve. Just wanted to extend my belated congrats.

Regarding parking, cambridge is not a very parking friendly place. However, as a cambridge resident, you can get a cambridge parking sticker and take advantage of the on-street resident parking spots. That said, I don't know how convenient or feasible this will be. Perhaps some current students or others who have investigated this option in more depth can chime in.

I will likely be living off campus and will try to find a place with parking.



Getting a Cambridge street permit requires having a Massachusetts drivers license with Cambridge address, having your car registered in Mass, and of course paying for Massachusetts insurance rates. There is probably some backhanded way of getting around this (finding some Cambridge resident to buy you a permit, probably) but you'd have to check that out, Steve.jd.

If you live in North Hall, there is on site parking, not sure how hard it is to get. Some of the affiliated complexes also have on site parking (29 Garden, One Western Ave, those 2 I know, I'm sure there are others). The general idea I got was that having a car is a huge pain, so I'm gonna take a deep breath and try leaving mine at home for at least the first semester.

I think I've figured out that if you're in a dorm other than North, your Harvard parking options consist solely of a rather expensive garage across the river.  I may have missed some loophole, but it doesn't look good.

Hey all, another lurker here, but I wanted to let you all know that good news is still to be had - I'm in too!!! Also definitely going. Got the email last friday like the others. An interesting wrinkle is that I was initially deferred, and decided to call on Thursday to find out my application status. I was told a letter had been in the mail for a couple of days (I live overseas), only to get the Toby email on Friday. So, while it's pure speculation, I'm thinking that my case was more of a deffered>waitlist>accept. I also hear friend of a friend was waitlisted and then got the same email and call last Friday. Guess there's hope for everyone still on the waitlist!


Congratulations!  See you in Cambridge in the fall.

Okay, everyone...I was just admitted to HLS today and I'm soooo excited!  I don't know anything about all the housing stuff - so I don't even know where to begin!  Any advice?

Congrats! ;D  Are you definitely coming to hls then?
