Second, if you scroll down in this:

There's a pic from one of last year's cruises.  It appears dresses would be too much, and that the ladies were wearing as little as possible because, as I've already stated, it's gonna be really hot.

Wow.  There's also a pic of my society's social activity (Bradford).  Whereas Cadena does an AIDS walk, Sheffield builds houses, and Green builds decks, the great Bradford society members MOVE ROCKS.   :D  Way to go, team.  Glad you're putting those brains to work!   ;)

Since they don't have as many chain gangs anymore to break up the rocks, they use the next best thing.  :)

U of Texas - Austin / Orientation Packet Posted

The Orientation Packet has been posted on the FreshLaw site.  It is under one of the links at the top from the existing Orientation page.

It looks like it is just a compilation of mostly pre-existing data.  I didn't notice anything of special note while glancing through it.

Alls well that ends well. Now maybe you can start reading them like Felsen.

I am truly becoming an inspiration and role model for all to follow.  Woe to the world!  ;)

While I admire your tenacity, you have to realize that reading up on the material beforehand really isn't going to do anything for you beyond give you an opportunity to read everything all over again, right?

Yes, I fully expect to re-read the assigned readings once they actually get posted.  Yes, I realize that it will probably be no long-term benefit to reading ahead of time.

No, I disagree that there is no short-term benefit.  Since (as long as they start at the beginning of the book) I will have read the material through at least one more time and will have had a couple of weeks to do some pre-digestion of the material, I will feel much more comfortable during the first week or so of classes.  Having a preview of the material is also helping relieve the stress of not being able to actually do anything productive while just sitting and waiting for things to start.

It is not like I'm reading through the entire textbook, just the foreward/preview and first chapter.  It is either that or playing way too much Civ IV.  I can only take so much of Leanard Nimoy spouting bible versus and proverbs while I'm playing a game.

You can just walk into the Co-Op (East one just by the Law School) and buy your books.  There may be a few that are still missing, but when they come in you should be able to just walk in and get them.

The 1L books were not along the wall where they have the big sign for law school books.  They were out on pallets right next to it in the aisles.  When you get there, they have signs hanging from the ceiling for each section above that section's pallet of books.

I don't know if the law school has its own schedule or not.  The instructions for Flag Football Captains does mention that there is a 1L Coed bracket.  I didn't notice any others calling out 1L or Law School brackets (if there are any others).

Am I the only one who chose the combination lockers ? I did so because (a) I'm worried I'll lose the key, and (b) The idea of having so many books that I need the "Larger" lockers makes me emotionally shut down and give up.

Anyone? Anyone?

Eh, I guess it's just me and the 2 and 3Ls.

I figure I'd forget the combination before I lose a key.  That and I can never get the combination locks to work the first time... well, at least I couldn't when I was in 6th grade...

Hooray!  Deuces is back from his long absence.  I agree.  Though I can still remember the combination for the lock I bought 10 years ago, and haven't used recently.  I've yet to lose my keyring.  In that case, the $20ish deposit is a much smaller issue than re-ordering a back-up key for my car, and deciding if the loss warrant changing my house locks.

I don't care if someone is a gunner.  That's just all show.  I just care about the curve-blowers, whether they're vocal or quiet.  :)

It looks like I'm definitely in the minority then.  The only restraint I've been exercising  about reading the books is that I don't want to read too far in and get stuck with a lot of misconceptions on the material.  Reading through 2 pages a night helps me temper my anxiety while waiting for school to start.

Well, front page news for the UT Law website.  I don't think I've seen anyone else mentioned up there yet.  Congratulations!  I wonder how many students get the honor of their own write-up.
