U of Toledo / Re: First Assignments...

Interesting observation about the USN&WR rankings.  It is possible that Toledo has found a good way to fudge the numbers through their transitional program.  I also noticed that use of the transitional program makes it possible for them to hold only one Property class this semester.  (AND WOW is that classroom is packed!) 

I'd say that overall, the workload has been slightly less than I expected but this is only the first week... I'm sure that things will get more difficult as the semester progresses and the LRW work really kicks-in. 

Don't get too comfortable with your 3 day weekends.... Spring semester, you'll be in for a little shock when your workload almost doubles... on the other hand... live it up while you can.  Maybe this semester you can fly out to Vegas a few more times with all of those long weekends ;)

U of Toledo / First Assignments...

So far I've made it through my Contracts and Civ Pro for Monday... what do you guys think about the first day reading/questions for our 1L classes?  I guess I'm wondering how many days it will be before they start really loading us up with heavy reading and writing.

I think it might be safe to assume that no one has been assigned to their "real" section of Legal Writing yet and they just pooled us altogether in section 10.  What are the odds that all of us are section 10 legitimately?

Hotel Yorba... thanks for the tip about the schedules.

I just pulled mine up 10:10-11:40 and 1:00-2:30 MTWR and 10:10-11:40F.  So far/so good.  No 8:30AM classes YET :)  I'm not much of a morning person so I'd perfer to have all mine start at 10:10 or later.  Unfortunately, I'm assigned to section 10 of the Legal Writing which is the TBA section, so I guess I still have a 50/50 shot of that section falling at 8:30.

Hotel Yorba did you get section 10 as well or do they have more than one TBA in legal writing?

If you go to the UT Web for Students you can activate your username etc. from here you can access your schedule, I am already registered and I would assume anyone else would be as well.

Murphy's law... I go to activate my account and the clock ticks 11:55PM and the system locks me out for nighttime batch processing.

Transferring / Re: Toledo Transfers -- Is Toledo to Tier 1 possible?

You haven't even started and you are already looking to get out.  Isn't that a little premature?

U of Toledo / Re: U of Toledo - Orientation
« on: July 29, 2005, 06:05:14 PM »
I have a quick question because maybe I missed something. The cases that were attached to the package, what were the purpose of those. Do we need to read those beforehand, or it is just a way of the school introducing us to materials we can expect to read on a daily basis.

As I understand it, orientation is going to include a brief (very brief) class on "how to study/prepare for class".  The case that they included in our orientation material will be discussed during this orientation class.  We are instructed to read, understand, and prepare to discuss this case for our orientation.  If you read the orientation packet, you will see that we will have to check the buliten boards at the law school after we receive our class schedules.  There will most likely be reading assigned BEFORE the first day of classes.  (so take those books to Vegas with ya)

I'm wearing jeans and some type of collared shirt. I will be driving a blue P.T. Cruiser with Michigan plates. I will try and be there by 11:00 if anybody wants to meet up beforehand to match cyber-name with face.

I'll try to get there around 11:00 or so as well.  The 4 1/2 hour drive + time-zone change will make it a very long day.  I'll either be driving a black Dodge Ram with Illinois Plates (CYBER1) or I'll be driving a white '92 Camero with Illinois Plates (CBCAST1).  In my former life, I owned an ISP... that's why I have the unusual plates.

See ya,

I agree, we should find a way to meet up.  We could meet 20 min early outside or something, depending on the weather.  I've never actually met a group or individual from cyber space - lol.  Anyway let me know what you all think about a time and place if you're going. Also, I'm wondering how formal/casual I want to dress. does BBQ mean jeans and t-shirt, shorts and sandals, dockers and polo, suit???

I realize that the purpose of the BBQ is to give all of the students a chance to meet one another, but I figure that there is some real value in getting the "cyber-space" group together.  I suspect that those of us that have devoted time to LSD or LSN PRIOR to school are probably some of the more devoted students.  Maybe we'll find our little group useful in the future when it comes time to buckle-down and form study groups, etc.

I was also wondering about the dress for Friday.  Anyone have any guesses as to what to wear to the picnic?

Hi all!

I'll be at the picnic on the 27th.  I'm the non-trad law student (read as: the OLD GUY), 33-married-with-two-kids.  I'll be moving in from Illinois and buying a house down in Whitehouse, OH (just a little further away than Maumee).

It's nice to hear that some other LSDers will be there Friday.  We need to figure out a way to meet up Friday in the "real-world" (out from behind the keyboard, avatars, and handles).
