Yep... and I think they're still offering SJG permits.  Weird, considering the post on Freshlaw claiming that it's "extremely difficult" to get in.

I'm in D also!  I've heard great things about the profs, especially Sokolow.  10:30 starts with only one class on Thurs. and Fri. is too sweet.  Does anybody know if garage parking spaces are supposed to be guaranteed w/ a permit?

If I have to be in class by 8:15/8:30am every day, I'm dropping out.  I'm hoping for 1 or 4.  We'll get to compare our schedules soon!

Yeah, that sucks.  Somebody in the "UT Law 2010" group posted this link:

It's a grid of the classes.  The number next to each class represents a group.

Extremely excited and even more scared 0L here. Where can I get information about general schedule for mailing out these letters Felsen mentioned. I'd like to have an idea how OCI works before I get there. Good luck to everyone -- L. Strauss

I feel ya on this one.  Feels something like this:

Nah, not really.  But the words are right.

You got that email too, huh? I signed up for the Levinson book because it seems like it might spark some interesting debate.

Also, I'm going to spend this Saturday and Sunday looking for a place in Austin. What should I expect to pay in Hyde Park for a studio or 1-bedroom? (It doesn't have to be pretty, I could live in a pool shed as long as it has Internet access and a campus bus stop.)

Yeah, I did.  Not sure if I want to sign up or not yet - it might be nice to have a break in the middle of the day instead.

I'd say a nice 1-br in Hyde Park will run you about $800/month, and could be more or less depending on proximity to campus, bus route, etc.  I'd drive around Hyde Park if I were you and call numbers on those little "for lease" signs - a lot of times residents may have a studio outback they're renting.  And those will be cheaper than what you can find with apt locators.  Also brouse Craigslist, though most of that stuff is probably gone - it's very active in late May through June, when people's leases run out.

If you want to look further in town, but still on the bus route, price will go down to 600 or so and commute will go up significantly.

The book discussion is optional?

Is this still happening?  I might be interested.

I emailed 3 professors asking for LOR.  One said no, another said yes, and the last asked me to come in for a chat so that she could write a more personal letter.  FWIW, I got into a few reaches.

Yes.
