If you go to the law school website (http://www.law.gsu.edu) and click the link for New Student Orientation, there should be another link for advisors.

You'll have to use your "law id" to access the info.  But it doesn't really tell you much of anything.  It just says:

"Your advisor is Professor X."

That's it.  Hope that helps.

"Cynical?"  God, have I already hit that benchmark in my life?

O well.  I suppose that even if it didn't happen naturally, law school would have done it to me anyway!

It's not an overreaction.  It's completely justified.

That being said, however, the SBA won't do a thing about it.  Too many people allow it to happen.  Too many students don't care. 

(It's just the half-crazed students who are in debt, with mortgages, with families to feed, and real adult grownup problems who find this to be an issue.  And those students - please forgive me if I'm wrong - and God I would be soooo happy if I was - will be few and far between). 

So, there you have it.  My adult headaches coupled with the astronmical amount of schoolwork will definitely keep me silent.  I wish I had more "zest" (?) for doing something noteworthy... But school hasn't even begun yet and I'm already exhausted!!!

it's definitely $750...

jeez, what's the point?  First of all, I don't know how many of you have looked at the booklist.  Even if you were to buy all "used" books, $750 isn't going to cut it.  (I spent more than that purchasing all of my books through cheapie sources like half.com).

And anyway, FORCING you to spend YOUR money at THEIR bookstore is absolute RAPE!!!  Does no one else seem to 'get' what a scam that is?!? You get your loan disbursement the day that school starts (that's assuming that the wonderful folks at GSU will meet the deadline, which they have been known for NOT doing in the past), which means:

- no time to shop around

- no ability to wait the standard week for shipment if you do decide to purchase elsewhere (by far the better choice)

I personally think that this is an overenthusiatic plot on behalf of the GSU bookstore to rake in a litte more dough.

That's just me though.  I probably sound half-crazed, but stuff like this really annoys me.

If there's any possible way for you to purchase early through another source(it's worth racking up the credit card debt), then go for it.  You'll save a bunch of money.

yuch.....am i the only one who hasn't done all of the required reading for orientation yet???

I don't mind the cases, because they'll actually be interesting, I'm sure.  But the law school prep book looks like mindless drivel......
