Yepp...Contracts is up, exciting times. Hope everyone did well.  IP must be incomplete, or we've both seriously screwed something up :)

IP stands for "In Progress". Everyone gets IP for LRW first semester.

I definitely fall into the "dislike Addis" category. Just make sure you pay attention and don't surf the internet in that class. That was my biggest problem. Once you lose your focus with him, its almost impossible to get it back.

Well, I'm watching the Cards/BoSox game on MLB.tv and catching up on my "Tulane Greatness" reading.

I have a few things to add to this:

Bait-n-switch time

What sucks at Tulane...

1. The carpets suck.  I imagine most of you witnessed it when you visited.  Each summer Tulane says they are going to be replaced, but it hasn't happened yet. 

2. The Men's bathrooms suck.  The rubber urinal blockers keep disappearing, exposing the gross hard-water stained ceramic bottom area.  They also don't "feel" clean enough.  Third floor tiny bathroom is the worst.

3. The CDO class sucks.  They should, instead, require each student to send in a resume and meet, individually, with a member of the CDO to discuss the student's employment strategy.

(this can actually probably be found in the thread already, but I'm bored)

Tulane students, please add to the list/discuss.

(also congrats vjm)

Things that I personally think sucked about first year @ TLS (and moving to NOLA)

1) Legal Research and Writing... OK, OK, I know its a necessary evil, and in the end it actually worked out for me, BUT I absolutely HATED that class. True, I had a Suckey (that's a pun, for all the rising 2Ls on the board) professor, but that class was the bane of my existence.

2) The temperature in the classrooms. Bring a hoodie when its 95 degrees with 99% humidity outside, and wear cooler layers under your sweaters in the winter. The temperature inside is always the opposite of the temperature outside.

3) Hard to find good food after 10 pm. I'm used to a city where great food was available from many, many sources 24 hours a day. It was a hard to hear my stomach growling at 2 am with no real options except bar food.

4) The roads in NOLA.

Also, I want to tell the soon-to-be 1Ls that 1) James Gordley is the best K professor. Ever. If you find out during orientation that you have him, rejoice. 2) The people who talk in class and act like, well, feminine hygiene product bags, aren't the ones that make the best grades. Don't let them intimidate you.

That's about all.

Hey, the Cards are winning 4-2 in the top of the 7th. Woo Hoo!

Oh right, school is starting a week later this year...

Really? Awesome.

35
3.7 should be safe

The cutoff should be somewhere between 3.55 and 3.65.

thanks for the info! :P

edit:  and the next five slots go to moot court board?

I think its:

top 10%= law review, next 5%= automatic moot court.
Not positive, though.

Visiting professor?

No, but he/she's a brand new prof.

Property grades are up, by the way.
Thanks for the heads up. I am interested to see the distribution on this one when it comes out.
He/She/It is nice enough, but a very different law school experience.
Oh well. We'll see.

I'm just glad that the grades are all up. Man, LRW actually saved my ass this semester. Who would have thought that the class I so passionately despised would actually come through for me?

Word to that. The brief saved my ass from being a complete GPA F'er.
After a year of law school, I see no rhyme or reason to how I did in the respective classes. The classes I think I crush are average and those that I think I sucked on are the best.
Congrats on the LRW success. That is my biggest regret. I should have done more to get better, faster.
I can live with the results.

Thanks.

Seriously, though, my grades have absolutely no rhyme or reason to them.

I would feel better about my ability if there was at least some consistency in my grades. But they're all over the place, and I've decided to just stop predicting how I'm going to do after the exams.

Anyway, woo-hoo for being done with IL! This is when it starts getting easy, right? Maybe not.

Hmm... I've got LRW (but that's been up for weeks) and Con Law.
Not to out you, or me, but aren't you in my Con Law with Werhan and Contracts II with Ponoroff?

It is interesting that some people got Contracts II up first and we got Con Law. I thought they really coordinated across the sections to release the grades at the same time. I am guessing they met and made any adjustments before this, so who knows why the scattered posting. 

I suspect the CII and Con Law will be up for everyone today. Property scares me. It can wait.


Well, you're not exactly outing me. I was in your K class (pretty obvious since I wear my Cardinals hat pretty much every Friday morning), but I had Addis for Con Law. I was wondering why some people have certain grades and others don't. One guy I talked to had everything but Property last night at 8.

I'm really not looking forward to Property. I would be fine if they just went ahead and lost that one.

Also, I really hate the "trickling" grades. Is it really so hard to wait to post them until they're sure about all of our classes? I feel like I'm on a freaking emotional roller coaster.

True. I hate the anxiety this creates. Property is looming for me. I can live with everything else so far, but Property is te real wild card. My prof was insane and the exam was not hard. Curve is going to be terrible. It was so open ended that there is no telling how she is going to grade the thing. Jeesh.

Yeah, I don't envy you. I can guess which prof you had, and man, I would be a wreck too. Seriously! "What is Property"?!?!?! WFT?

I didn't have that prof, but I just have a general uneasy feeling about my grade in that class.

Oh, and sorry to step in, but the area around St. Charles and Napoleon is generally pretty nice. I live on Magazine between Napoleon and Jefferson and I absolutely love my neighborhood.

Thanks - I'll be sure to look in your area too.

Actually, (although I love the neighborhood, I'm moving out of my place this weekend (personal reasons- nothing is wrong with the apartment). Its a 2 bedroom, and I'm renting it for $1,000/month. My lease runs out at the end of June. If you're going to be in town this weekend, you can come by and look at it. It won't be cleaned yet, and with the move it may look a little messy, but its actually very nice and a really great place for a couple. PM me if you're interested.
