quizzo is all over the city, but the closest is at new deck on...wednesdays?  thursdays?  i forget.  but there are always a few law school teams there.  a student group (the ACS i believe) puts on a really popular one twice a year at the school.

Thanks for the tip re finding section early!  I creeped the 2010 FB group, and it seems that it was in the Penn Portal.  After they logged in, the section/courses showed up in the bottom left hand corner (where it says "My Courses").  Mine doesn't have anything yet, but it looks like that was in August last year.

I'm excited about pre-orientation and orientation.  I don't see a description anywhere of what the service event will be this year, but I'll be there.  Anyone else wishing we could fast forward a few weeks here?!

Question: Who are Morris Fellows? ie. is this part of a 1L program, or an orientation thing?

Morris Fellows are 2Ls who are going to be your guides through 1L year.  The program is being revamped this year so that we serve more as mentors for the whole year, rather than as just your mentors during orientation (which is how the program has traditionally worked out).  Each Morris Fellow (or group of fellows - i think its 2 per group of students) will be having dinner with our group the first night of the informal orientation stuff, then doing quizzo with you on Thursday night, then competing with you in a field day on sunday.  We'll also be having informal coffees/get togethers during the semester to check in and see how everyone is doing, and we'll be your first source for outlines and advice.  Its going to be a great program - just hope you are one of my Morris Fellows, because clearly we're going to win the field day competition :P

Last year, the service day was 4 hours spent cleaning up Fairmount park.  It was an absolute blast, and if I didn't have interviews that day I would absolutely have signed up to lead it this year.  Also, for those of you who reaaaaally want to know what your schedule is, I seem to remember being able to check it on Penn in Touch- possibly on my transcript, or something.  Someone in the UPenn Class of 2010 thread described how we could figure it out, if I remember correctly.

What events are you guys signing up for?  I'll be helping out with the bowling night, the night at Dave & Busters, the Morris fellows events (quizzo, the dinner, field day, etc), and I'm on the Student Life Panel.  Looking forward to meeting all of you guys!  Let me know if you have any questions as we get closer

If you want to be scared for your life, head about 20 blocks west of campus.


While West Philly is filled with modern-day rogues and Putneys, anyone with a reasonably strong shin has nothing to worry about.

LOL.

You will laugh a lot harder at that joke after your first week of Torts :)

i remember professor morse discussing the eggshell head guy, so i think i get it.  am i missing something else?

yeah, there is a case called Vosburg v. Putney that you read in your first week of torts.  Vosburg had extremely weak shins (our torts professor referenced him as eggshell shin vosburg for the entire semester) and was tapped on the shin by a classmate, which, after a series of unfortunate events, permanently disabled said leg.  The professor also created a character called iron shin jones, to prove a point about the reasonable person standard in torts.  Thus, the joke about shins and west philly being filled with Putneys.  The only other thing it means is that both of those posters are people from Section 2 at Penn law.

Just wait for the first 3 weeks of class.  You'll find out, VERY quickly, what a gunner is

Definitely not first semester, but possibly second semester if the hours weren't too bad.

400sq ft?  are you planning on using a crowbar to get yourself into your apt? :P  I'd say thats a bit pricey for such a small space- but then again it is in center city.  I know someone who lives out in west philly for $600 a month (including utilities) and has 700sq ft of a house to herself.
