Go to IU-I's website and look at the schedules for the fall - you won't have every class every day and you'll have time during the day to get the reading done. If you keep up with the reading you should be able to avoid dragging a ton of books back and forth. Don't forget to get a parking pass, you can get it online from IUPUI's website. IU-Indy is on the campus of IU-Purdue - Indianapolis (IUPUI) so a lot of the admin stuff is through IUPUI and not IUI (hope that makes sense). If you're set on an apartment, all you have to learn is the locations of nearby bars (The Distillery or the Rathskeller come to mind...) most of the other places probably won't matter to you.
You'll need a OneStart account and an Oncourse account, but the school should send you info on setting all these up. You'll also need to register your laptop so you can get online through the wireless network. Get a couple cheap USB keys for exams if you plan to type, the online submission isn't debugged yet.
Lockers are limited, first come, first serve. If you can find an empty one throw a lock on it and tell Therese at the front desk and it's yours for the life of school.

is the school blog which will give you a limited flavor of the gossip - mainly it's the same people posting, but you'll learn things about the school, profs, etc.
The school just started charging for pringing this year - $.01 / page because the med school students were printing for free on the law school printers and sucking down all the supplies. This means you will need money on your Jag card (that's your ID) to be able to get any of your papers.
Here's the class schedules:http://www.indylaw.indiana.edu/students/
and all sorts of other good info, student handbook, computers, etc.
The school offers almost ALL software you'll need FREE so if you are buying a laptop go cheap on the OS and any of the applications. You'll be able to download (or buy from the bookstore for low low $$$) WinXP Pro, Office Pro, etc. See here:http://iuware.indiana.edu/
