I got offered a seat at UMKC today, funny that I was visiting Arkansas at the same time.  I declined the seat.

Thanks.  I actually went over to Fayetteville this morning to look at properties and settled on a townhouse north of campus.  Eagle and Oakland.  Decent place plus it has a 2 car garage which will help me by not having to get a storage unit... 

Well forget the scooter you can walk from there, no? Well good luck!

Yep.  The S-10 and the Vespa are gonna get mighty lonely come late August....  In other news my gasoline budget on the excel spreadsheet just got reduced to zero.

I found out today that Arkansas will be sending out class schedules and book list within a week...  They have been reducing class size as well with only 144 or so for this years class, 2 sections of 72.  Legal writing split into 5 sections though.

So they're sending them out before orientation? That's cool. Where did you hear all this?

Thanks!

Dean Miller gave me a personal tour of the building this morning while I was in town.  He seems like a great guy, kind of a throwback.  I really liked him alot.   Never got a chance to tour the school till now.

I agree - SUPER nice guy! What did you think of the building? They have done some really cool things to it. That's funnny I was actually thinking about heading over there this afternoon because I took a sick day at work.

I like the building, decent layout.  Some of the renovations aren't done yet but change takes time.  The building wasn't as new or nice as some other schools I visited, but the fact that they are renovating and making it nicer goes a long way.

Aren't you a 0L?  What do you know about hiring practices from top schools?

As far as hiring practices at top schools, I don't know crap.  And I would suspect that most here don't. What hiring experience do you have from the top schools?  Still hanging out on the pre-law LSD board after you graduated from the T14?  I highly doubt it.      But having travelled this country extensively and met many people from varying walks of life I have a feel for how people conduct themselves in business.  I stand by my statement that a Univ of Washington grad will get a job in Seattle or the PNW over a NYU grad if that NYU grad has no ties the PNW.  Just to make it fair lets say top 20% at either school for each job applicant.   Please feel free to discredit this.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: is it just me?

if they are that smart then let them do their own research. 

hear anything back from OU yet? 

Spoke with admissions last week and she told me that "they are where they need to be right now".  Which I take to mean that as people get of waitlists at Colorado, SMU, UT, Houston, and other higher ranked schools they might get around to calling me if enough people withdraw or don't show up for orientation.  I am actually looking at townhouses tomorrow in Fayetteville...gotta make plans.
