Where should I go next fall? / Re: Best T25 Nickname

I voted for UChicago because at least their color reminds me of pirates. If they win, they can all scream: Marooned!

And USC used to be the Fighting Methodists a long time ago, until they shed their religious affiliation. When they happened, they started looking for a good team name. After USC lost a track meet around the same time, a writer for the LA Times said that even though USC was facing a losing battle, "They fought on like trojans." That is the origin of USC as the Trojans, and the cheer/greeting "Fight on!"

If you don't recognize me from the self-tar, I'm sure I'll be chatting with Hank and Bosco anyway! Oh, and I'll be wearing black and white Pumas I'm sure, I pretty much live in them.  Although if you find me by my shoes that would be kind of weird...

<=== flattered

And I'm sure your shoes are lovely!

Well, I mean, I do owe you a drink for your birthday. Does a free glass of wine at the wine mess count? Probably not...

Haha, I was about to type "body shot," but I think that would be over the top even for me.   :D

I think Hank's going to law school just to figure out how to legally organize his own personal harem. ;)

Denim vest on a man: extremely uncommon (post-80s).
Denim vest on a woman: not as uncommon.

I haven't seen a denim vest on anybody in years...

Have you visited Jersey recently?

They're out there...

that sounds scary. it's like the style channel's version of the x-files.

i would think northeastern would offer you the best opportunity.
when i went to visit there i rememer one of the deans talking about how they have their co-op programs all over the country and they are def not limited to Boston.  so i would look on their site and see whether there are a lot of co-op opportunities in the DC area.  Since you do a lot of co-op experience it could help you make contacts in the area.

MTG, is it terrible that I'm missing Thursday's opening events?  I wanted to come then--but this was short notice and my manager started trippin.  I'm hopeful that the admits will not have already splited up into new friend circles and leave me out  :-[

MCB, I'm in the same boat as you. I couldn't get a flight that would allow me to go to Thursday night festivities. I'll hang out with you :)

I just sent out the admitted student weekend hosting assignment e-mail to the current students. Hopefully you prospectives will be hearing from them sometime this weekend. Another e-mail will go out Monday to the prospectives with contact info for the hosts (just to make sure that hosts and admits get in touch with each other).

oooh...exciting :)

So, for the dinners with current students, how does it work? Is there a pre-determined restaurant (or list of restaurants) that hosts/prospectives choose from or is the entire city game? I want to know mainly because I'm curious the host to prospective ratio in a more relaxed location before the brewery fun starts.

I think people are taking this the wrong way, its not them telling you that they expect law school to be a priority or anything, its simply giving you the opportunity to look through a case so that a professor can do a mock law class with you in order to give you an idea of what its like.

I think the misunderstanding stems from the fact that the reading was distributed a week in advance. Feels like an assignment or something. I know that sounds ridiculous, but just saying, y'know?

I really don't get where you guys are coming from.  There's a mock class; if you don't want to do the work, don't do it.  If they would have given you a 10-page case in your registration folder, you would have been more pissed off, right? 

If Chicago pulled a Penn and wanted you to read 40 pages worth of stuff, then I'd expect the pissing and moaning, but I don't understand what's to female dog about here.

Whoa...back off. I hadn't received any other reading assignments for ASWs. I didn't know it was common. I still don't like it because it makes me feel put upon, but I'm not going to continue to explain myself. I think I explained my point of view well enough upthread and belaboring this arguement seems pretty useless. If anyone wants a better explanation, let me know.

I merely started this discussion to see if anyone else felt the same way I did about getting assigned reading for an ASW. I see I'm pretty much alone. No biggie. I look forward to meeting everyone next weekend (no...I really do, heh).
