Was orientation's motorcycle crash victim among the tech support you encountered today?

Every time I ask for help printing on both sides of one sheet of paper, the people in the lab lead me astray. I don't know who to trust.

Nope, two guys I have never seen before. I still can't remote print due to Vista, which seems a little silly.

lawboy81- I would help you if I could, but I am all public interesty. Lots of people leave, but that seems to have been their plan, rather than a necessity. We have decent firms here, although not a ton, and the recovery seems well underway. The current toilet bowl state of the economy makes it hard to tell. Hopefully the new federal administration will be helpful in that regard. If you are interested in staying in NOLA, lots of locals go to Loyola so you might want to check that out as well.

I must say, the tech support today was great. The computer exam software did something veerrrryyy bad in my computer, and they had me all straightened out before exam time. As well as being socially normal. Je suis shockee!

Any 2L's doing the civil track? I would love the scoop on Carriere, Palmer, Pucillo.

Congrats bloomlaw! It's a great place with great people.

A torts prof at my school has a post about this on a legal blog. Evidently he exhibited some poor judgment when a student asked about the difference between an assault and a battery.

Yes, he demonstrated. And then had to explain himself to the Dean.

I know there was an article about a teacher who divided her class into two different groups (I think randomly, but it may have been "light eyes" = slaves, "dark eyes" = owners) and went a whole day with all privileges going to one group, including who she believed when there was an issue. The kids are all grown up now, and many still remember it as a breakthrough moment for appreciating the racial history and current reality in America.

Yay for the "vintage" students!!! It's not that bad, especially compared to work.

Yay! Thank God I am not the only one who is deeply suspicious about those.

Pencil and paper works just fine, thank you.

That sucks. I am so sorry. I can't tell you how many people I hear saying " At least grading is anonymous!".

This is one of the stories I bust out for those people.

They may be knowledge wizards but I'm a CITATION WIZARD ...

Har har ...

So, I did "poorly" on the frackin' memo too. Problem is, I'm not really sure what to change for the next time. The commentary is all willy-nilly and not very helpful. Lots of sentences the prof would have preferred that I had used; but, since there's neither a way to read the prof's mind, nor any clear indication of why the prof's sentences are better than mine, I'm still just shooting in the dark.

Plus, ditto on what someone said earlier about the fact that they give us the informative handouts after we've handed in the papers. Hunh?

Do you have the prof who just keeps talking at the same rate and minimal volume while turning to write something on the board, so that when the prof turns back around, the sentence is 9/10ths of the way through and you missed the middle third of it and the idiot just keeps talking? Jeepers.

Glad to hear I shouldn't 'worry too much.' Can I get some verification of this notion? The "true" LRW curve at Tulane is a B+? Please elaborate.

We definitely have the same professor. I sit in the front and can't hear a large chunk of what he is saying.

I watched it as part of a class on leadership- as an example of the carnage a charismatic and ego-driven leader can create.

Just so you know that that reading is out there, and the person who reads your essay may have that view.

Or has a different take on it?
