Law School Admissions / Re: Harvard to ban internet?
« on: April 11, 2006, 07:29:54 PM »
We must have sat in different classes; I sat in on two different classes (Property w/ Fisher, Criminal w/ Ogletree), and I didn't see a lot of extracurricular internet usage during class.  Sure, someone checked their email once in awhile, and one person was on AIM, maybe a solitaire here or there, but I certainly didn't observe most or even many students doing this.  Sounds like a "problem" that's being blown out of proportion. 

Yes. We sat in different classes. I sat in a Contracts class. This was a "relaxed" class where the professor call on students in alphabetical order. Perhaps this is why most students were checking email. They knew the professor was not going to call on them.

And yes, I also sat in on Ogletree's class. But that was a mock class with admitted students...

I sat in Ogletree's real criminal class, not the mock class (it was at 3pm, so I missed the "closing remarks"), and he did cold call, so I guess it makes sense that more people were paying attention.  I was in Warren's mock class, and that was anything but "relaxed" (in a good way).

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: UChicago Hold

Yeah, I applied in January and got a hold letter.  My complete date is the last date on LSN for which they've given out decisions, and that was way back in January.  I suppose they can afford to be slow, though. 

But I'm withdrawing, so that's one less person to compete with, I guess.

back home.

So, what'd y'all think?  I'm certainly convinced.

Here's the weather forcast for all those interested/deciding what to pack http://www.weather.com/outlook/recreation/golf/tenday/USMA0066?from=search_10day .  Looks like we're going to avoid rain and get some decent weather.

yeah, you guys missed the snow here yesterday...

Easiest way from the airport to Harvard: the Silver Line bus stops at all of the airport terminals, and takes you directly to South Station, where you can transfer for free to the Red Line subway.  Take the train from the platform marked "Inbound to Alewife", and Harvard station is six stops away.  I think the total cost is only $1.25, and it shouldn't take more than 45 minutes.

I've heard nothing either, and I got that same email.  I've gotten in elsewhere, though, so I'm just going to withdraw.

Funny how we have nearly the same UG GPA and LSAT score.

Yes, Priority Mail in a big flat box.  They must have spent tons of money on this- the postage for mine was over $8.00. 

 :D Didn't you pay them $70?

true, true...

In most of the bars I've been to in Cambridge/Boston, they card upon entry (not just card- many scan the ID's as well).  It could be because those are the ones frequented by students, and therefore likely to have underage types trying to get in.  The Harvard people may know of some places that won't card at the door, though, and take us there?
