I donít have a TV.  Havenít had one for years.

I have a truck and I want to get most of my stuff from craigslist.

Restaurant L is here:

http://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&lr=&q=restaurant-l&near=Boston,+MA&cid=0,0,2929359432134193342&ll=42.351455,-71.073625&spn=0,.02&sa=X&oi=local&ct=image

Restaurant week is next week?  Ugh.  Iíll be in Cali.  I have to fly there on Saturday and I wonít be back Ďtil the 27th.

LSD John Galt is going to Yale.  Have you read Atlas Shrugged?

Panera is in Watertown?!  Thatís right down the block.  Iím so eating dinner there tonight.  Thanks!


No problem on the Panera, I was so excited when I found it while I was busy getting lost trying to get home (I have GPS in my car, but it decided a road existed that no longer exists).  If you go further up into watertown there is also a "Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse" or something.  It's a little weird because the animals on the wall talk, but it's a pretty decent fast meal if you're looking for some meat and veggies.  Also a friendly's.  Also, there is a DMV right up there by Target and Best Buy if you need to get your license changed or anything like that.  There's two malls, as well.  Nothing spectacular, but they usually have what I need in a pinch and don't have time to go downtown.   

I have not read Atlas Shrugged, but I just asked my boyfriend if there was a character named John Galt, as he just finished the book a few weeks ago.  He explained the reference to me and now I understand what you were saying :)

No TV?!?!  How dyou watch the travel channel...or national geographic...or the discovery channel...whoa.  I didn't have TV at all in college, but I broke down in grad school and now I really enjoy it as a distraction once in awhile. 

Have fun in Cali.  Restaurant week comes around again (I think they do it two or three times a year) so you will get your chance.

Good luck with Craigslist furniture.  I"m an IKEA and "taking things from the parents" girl all the way. 

See you soon!

I've been here since Sunday.  Going crazy.  Have to stay home all day waiting for packages.  Just got my cable modem hooked up.  Need to get furniture.  Have no one to help me move it.  Bored out of my mind.  Do nothing but listen to audio books on my ipod.  Almost done with Atlas Shrugged.  Who is John Galt?


I'm thinking about eating at some place called "L" or something like that.  Anyone been there?

This was a very "castaway" post.  If you wrote that you started talking to a volleyball you drew a face on, I'd be concerned.  Sitting arouind is boring though...do you have TV or just internet? 

Where are you going to get furniture?  Do you have a car?  If you go with IKEA, they deliver.  So does Jordan's Furniture.  They have this thing called a "shabang" where you get a whole living room set for a really cheap price. 

I have never heard of "L" where is it?  Next week is restaurant week in boston.  www.restaurantweekboston.com  make sure you treat yourself at least once, it is definitely worth it. 

Uhh..Isn't John Galt an LSD person who is going to Harvard? 

In answer to your last post, I don't know where BC people go to hang out.  I know where I like to go for a good cheap meal though...Panera in Watertown.  There is also a diner out by BC Law in Newton that has good breakfast called Jhonny T's or something like that.  If you need suggestions, just let me know.

If you have an ipod, you can go to the apple store and get a mic to put on it for pretty cheap and then you can record the lectures and go back through them at home to see if you missed notes or important info.

Just a rant here...

I called admissions to see what was going on and if we were going to receive any info about classes/orientation etc... and the person who answered the phone was completely clueless.  They didn't even know if we were going to be getting a mailing or what was going on at all.  It did not inspire confidence!

Orientation is a pretty cool experience.  You show up and go into 120 EW (which is normally 2 classrooms), and they open it up into a big auditorium.  Its the first chance you really get to meet everyone, and you get cookies (maybe I'm overexcited by that).  Dean Garvey will give a breakdown of the class, including average GPA / LSAT from undergrad, and mention the cool things that people in your class have accomplished.  This is always the interesting part - you figure out that you're going to school with Sushi Chefs, Olympic Athletes, Video Game Designers, etc.

If you haven't already figured out what section you are in, you will figure it out in the next week or two.  At that point, there should be a list of your profs.  The textbooks are listed by class in the bookstore, they don't send you a list.  Most people get their books that first week at the book store, which is ULTRA expensive.  I'd highly recommend going to the bookstore the first day, writing down the books, then overnighting them via half.com.  I just emailed all my profs today asking what the text is so I can order them on half.com, but as I would wait.

Cross your fingers and hope you get into section 3 :)  Again, I'll throw out my offer if you guys get to the city and want to hang out, let me know.  I had some 2L's take care of me when I moved up and I told them I'd pay it forward.

Thanks for the heads up.  Is it a day or a week or a few days?  How does it work? 

Also-never underestimate the greatness of a free cookie :)

Nuke,

They lost a form of mine also.  LegelP, I'll be a 2L ;)

DTK-

What was your orientation like last year?  When did you find out your class schedule etc...  Did anyone buy their books before school started or was it all done during orientation?

It varies by firm.  If you have anyone specifically, I can go in and check it out.  Some of the firms specifically request law review.  It's pretty common to see top 25% on the listing for the really big firms (Ropes / Bingham / etc).  Some say top 1/3.  Overall, however, I'd say the majority don't show a GPA cutoff.

I honestly don't know enough about firms in the area to ask any knowledgable questions. I'm more concerned about what percentage of the class gets summer associate jobs with firms after 2L.

Nuke-

I can't answer your question in percentages, but I work in one of those big Boston firms, and I know that around the area, and throughout the NE corridor, BC law students are thought of very highly for summer associateships.  Over half of our summer associates here are BC students alone.

Ah!  DTK you're back.  What was orientation like for you?  When did you get your class schedule?  (I'm not chomping at the bit or anything....)
