Yes -- boxing took forever.  I was obsessively checking the status all day long!!  It was funny..... :D :D :D :D

It was weird though....I took longer for me to receive the printer than the computer.

PS -- I am completely head over heels in love with this computer!! :-*

I would never let my experience at Orientation or the Open House change my opinion of the law school as a whole.  I am confident that I will get an excellent legal education and will enjoy my experience (although I am already dreading the amount of work that I am going to have to do!! :o)  I am just not used to this bcuz my undergrad/grad school was SOOOOO organized and there is no excuse that Howard, and all black colleges/universities for that matter, is not run efficiently.

My bf was telling me that people have tried to make changes, but the changes are met with so much resistance that nothing is really ever implemented.  Plus, University jobs are like guh'ment jobs....you have to basically kill somebody on the job to get fired.  So you get people working there that are comfortable, have attitude problems, refuse to learn anything new and are complacent in their jobs and there are no consequences.  The cycle continues.....

I did have a very good experience at the Health Center today.  I am definitely keeping a positive attitude....that is the only way to deal with things like this.....

My group leader said shirt and tie is the minimum for men.  I am just going to wear a dress considering that this ceremony is OUTSIDE (who schedules ANYTHING outside in August in DC?!?!?!?).  It's okay though -- I am just going to make sure that I have some ice-water and some cold washcloths for my old parents!!!

Seriously -- I am going to stop complaining about Howard. I am looking forward to my studies there....but today was truly off the HOOK!!!!!

Just do something business casual.  It is a pretty important ceremony.  As always, it is better to be overdreesed than underdressed.

What Section are you in?

U won't have a break from 1-5.  You will be spending your day at the main campus to get a Student ID -- and believe me -- It is going to take ALL DAY!!!  My friends that went to Howard, Hampton and Morgan were laughing at me bcuz I was so outraged by the foolishness that I experienced today!!

Put on a wife-beater and some booty shorts and get ready to beat the heat tomorrow.  Since you didn't go to Orientation today, you need to go tomorrow to register (why in the HELL were we registering on paper in 2005!?!??!!) and to get your ID.  It is going to be damn near 100 degrees in DC tomorrow.  Just be prepared to be patient and deal with all of the ridiculousness that you will experience tomorrow.  I fenagled/flirted my way into getting my ID today -- thank GOD that I had the wherewithall to do that....I would probably go OFF on somebody tomorrow.  It is going to be too hot for that sh*t!!!!

wow! im not to surprised to hear that,coming from HBCU myself. o well, i can only hope tomorrow is better. It is dissapointing to hear though. i was doubting even going to the pinning ceremony really. cuz there's a 4 hour break from 1-5pm i believe, what i am supposed to do for all that time?!?!?

It was the most disorganized, worthless experience that I have ever been involved in EVER!!!  I cannot believe that a law school would conduct itself in such a disheveled, unprofessional manner.  I was completely APPALLED at the absurdities of the entire day.  I am NOT wasting my time by going tomorrow.  I am going to the Pinning Ceremony -- that's it.  The rest of my day will be spent in my air-conditioned apartment.

That being said -- I met some very intelligent people in my section and in my orientation group and was VERY impressed with Assistant Dean/Professor Dark and Dean Schmoke.  Those are the only things that got me through the day today.  I am tempted to be on the Orientation Committee just to try to prevent the atrocity that was disguised as an Orientation today. I have never experienced such a debacle in my entire college careeer (and I have 2 degrees from PWI's).**

**I still love Howard though and I am going to look past the disaster that I experienced today.  I just think that it is sad that HBCU's don't come into the 21st century and conduct business effeciently and expeditiously.  It is ridiculous that our HBCUs have a reputation for having an awful administration when modern technology can prevent all of the DRAMA that I went through today!!!!  It is pathetic and inexcusable!!!  I am PISSED!!!!! >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I don't think all of them are.  There is one about parenting as a law student and debt management that I don't plan to go to.  I think I will go to the rest though....it's only an hour.
