How about moving south (mornings) and north (evenings) on Figueroa Street?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

I lived in Downtown for a year and the commute isn't bad. North on Fig becomes congested at rush hour, but before and after that it is smooth sailing.

As for Fig heading south, I normally did not take that in the mornings, I would get on the 110S for a half mile and then merge onto the 10W until vermont, and I would be at campus fairly quickly.

I hope this helps.

So I splurged and got the Kayton PRG course. So far so good. It was way too expensive, but every patent lawyer I talked to recommended it. I setup a little schedule for myself and I am already three chapters behind! Man, this stuff can be so boring.

To throw in my two cents. I have a C2D MB and my fiance has a MBP, and they both rock!! If you plan on using Parallels (a Windows emulation program) get 2GB of RAM. I can be running programs in XP as well as OSX and it doesn't slow down my comp at all!

Plus, I swear XP runs faster on my mac than many of my friend's PC laptops.

I am excited about Hastings. I feel that after the construction is done, the school will have a lot more space than it does currently, and Dean Newton seems to care about improving the school. I just sent my seat deposit in today. See you all in the fall, or summer since orientation is in August!  ;)

Hey Outwest and uscmeche (and anyone else for whom this applies),

Would you mind sharing your overall experience at and impression of the Hastings brunch?  Has anyone attended their AS days yet?  Thoughts (good, bad, ugly)?  Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.

No problem. I thought it was great. The other students there seemed very nice and not the uber competitive people you would think. I am sure all that changes when school starts, but for now it seems ok.

The school is small for the number of students there, it was a Friday afternoon and there were still a good amount of people in the library. They said this would change when the other library opens back up. It should be done by the fall as well.

The administrative employees are all so nice. And the professors who spoke seemed like they cared deeply for what they taught.

To sum it up, I had a great first impression, and I plan on attending in the fall.

I caved and called. Rejected! Oh well, it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Good luck to everyone still in the running!

I may be confusing you with someone else, but didn't you get into HLS and SLS along with some other fantastic schools? Then a Boalt rejection...

No, I wish! I was a super borderline candidate even for Boalt.

Has anyone had any experience with patent bar prep courses? I guess BarBri has to be good, but there is one called OmniPrep that is super cheap.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the reception. All of the administrative people seemed extremely friendly! I also was pleased with the caliber of students, there were some very interesting backgrounds there. Overall, it was a great opportunity to see the school, and it seems like Hastings will get exponentially better when the construction is done. If anyone has any questions, go ahead and shoot me a PM.

Anyone want to write them and say something along the lines of:

"If I was deferred and did not recieve an e-mail or call by yesterday, can I safely assume I am either waitlisted or rejected?"

I spoke with someone and they said that my application was still "pending". I have not recieved an email, call, or letter yet. I guess the 23rd was a soft deadline...
