If the only reason you are installing windows is to take exams, I would hold off until you are actually at school. This year at Michigan (at like, the last second in December before exams) we got exam software for Macs, so now I have Windows installed w/ the partition and all that and I'm too lazy to undo it. So it might be worth waiting just in case your school gets exam software for Mac.

Yeah I kind of forgot about MAP once regular orientation and then school started.

I remember this time last year when threads like this would come up, and people would say "no seriously, don't study." And I would get annoyed that instead of answering the OP's question about what to study, they would just give them the advice not to study at all. Now I understand.

Seriously. Seriously seriously seriously seriously. Don't study. There is a reason why 90% of current students, when they read threads like this, think to themselves: "For the love of God - don't study!!" It's because you really should relax and play GTA and ride bikes and drink and read books that have nothing to do with law and watch the entire series of your favorite 80s TV show and all that other stuff that you won't have enough time for once you start law school.

You think you are bored out of your mind. But 6 months from now you will be longing for days when you were bored out of your mind, because all of a sudden you will think of all these things that you should have done before law school took over your life.

So don't study.

What exactly is involved in oral arguments at MAP. :o

All I know about MAP oral arguments is that if you are hungover and skip them, you don't get into trouble.

Hey peeps, thought I'd chime in...

I grew up in a not-welcoming place for LGBT folks, and went to college in a place that was better but nowhere near what I would like. For those of you in similar situations and who are heading to a big city or someplace that isn't super huge but is still super queer (a la Michigan), it is going to be awesome!! Have fun!! I try to look at the bright side of coming from a place that is not as accepting - when you do move somewhere where you finally feel 100% (or at least 90%) welcome and comfortable, you appreciate it a lot! I think some people here from big cities have been a bit bored by the gay scene in Ann Arbor but for me I'm like a kid in the candy store :P

Anyway congrats to you all and I can't wait to meet those of you who are coming to Michigan (If I haven't already).

Oh and if any of you are Michigan summer starters, there will be a few outlaws around this summer and we'll be putting together an informal coffee event or something.

Oh man, you totally did get outed, dude! I just read the wall for myself.

BTW, do you guys realize how many lurkers are out there? There were a few people at the ASW who knew me by my LSD name, but didn't have LSD accounts themselves (hello lurkers, if you're reading this right now :-P)

Lurkers, I find you creepy!  Also, haven't you ever heard of Pareto inefficiency and the free rider problem?!  (Here's a hint: you're the free-riders.) 

As for being outed, I've kept a pretty feeble attempt at RL anonymity...but who're we kidding?  Still, I wouldn't be any too happy if someone called me out on the internets. 

It's hard to maintain anonymity when you have a self-tar, Jolie :P

Go to Mich.

FWIW, I'm not gay, however, having visited both last year, if I were gay, I'd rather be gay at Mich.

I wish you were both gay and at Mich  ;) :P

Watch out with this talk of wanting a "girly" laptop... the PC police are undoubtedly on patrol and will start screaming at you to stop subjugating your sisters any moment now.

For those summer-starters, did anyone hear if Professor J. J. White is now going to be teaching Contracts.  I got a letter a few months ago saying it was going to be Omri Ben-Shahar, but on the 2008 Spring/Summer schedule it is White. I was just wondering. Thanks

Yep, for the full discussion I think it's 5 or 6 pages back.
