I'm moving from Philly to Winston-Salem--it's about an 8 hour drive. To the people paying $3000+ plus to move all their stuff: is that really even worth it? Why don't you just craigslist the hell out of furniture/TVs/etc when you get down there? And yes, craigslist is a verb.
A note for after you get your section assignments: I almost feel bad spoiling the fun, but if you're an extremely anxious type who is LUCKY ENOUGH to get Hanson as your torts prof/section leader, he (+ coauthor) has an article on SSRN about his approach to tort law. Link: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1154164
Like I said, this might spoil the fun (yours and his), and it is only a draft, so it's not the most polished piece in the world. Actually, upon further reflection, I wouldn't recommend reading this 'til after the class is over (but before the final) unless you're really dying and have no idea what is going on, big-picture-wise. The beginning is kind of dense and I was in the class, so. But yes. Advance notice and explication of an unorthodox prof's theory of teaching your very class: may indeed come in handy.
Related: buy no commercial supplements for Hanson's Torts class. They will be laughably useless. I will be the one doing the laughing.
Speaking of which, anyone know when we get our section assignments?
For those of you who left jobs with a longer tenure, how much notice did you give? The standard 2 weeks?
Lol I really don't have time for you, but you do provide amusement between barbri practice sets.
"May" has more than one meaning. Since you did not clarify that your usage of "may" was meant to indicate the future, then it was indeed ambiguous.
As for refuting misinformation about YLS, I've done that for far too long and don't really have the desire to do so anymore. The only reason I responded to you was because you stated your bull with such certainty that I could not resist the temptation to interject. Having done so, I am satiated. Indeed, my cup now runneth over.
But do continue; like I said, I find this exchange amusing.
Point #1: When I said to chill, I did not mean act superciliously
Point #2: If there was no truth to what I said, I doubt you would act so defensively. I also see that you are the type to refute everything you disagree with, so given the fact that you only pointed out a few lines in my long, first post suggests that the majority of what I wrote in the first post is in fact pretty accurate.
Point #3: Your huge number of posts on this board suggests that you do in fact have plenty of time.
Point #4: I concede that there is a small degree of ambiguity in my sentence after reading it again. But I think the usage of 'may..into' suggests they haven't done so already. Besides, given everything I wrote, do you think I wouldn't know what criteria they use in their rankings? I mean, give me a break. Show me some of that stunning logical reasoning that enabled you to achieve a high lsat score, unlesss of course you're one of those 150s that magically make it into YLS every year.
Point #5: I never stated anything with certainty. I already made that clear - again, pay attention to detail; it will be important in your career in law.
Point #6: In your post, it is so blatantly obvious that you are trying to keep your cool, when in reality your head is about to explode, whether out of anger or arrogance I'm not quite sure.
Point #7: I'll say it again. Both HLS and YLS are august institutions and anyone who attends either one should be proud. My first post was just an attempt to address the OP's concerns.
