Utah / Re: Anyone attend the U's admitted student's day last Friday?
« on: April 13, 2005, 10:01:23 AM »
I attended.  Of course I already know that I will be attending the U and knew that I liked the school, so not sure how impartial my opinion is.  Notwithstanding, I thought the event was pretty well organized.  There was an introduction from both Reyes and Dean Matheson.  We then sat through a class and then had a question/answer session with a panel of students made up of 2 1L's, a 2L, 3L and a graduate.  They were very honest, answered any question and had nothing but great things to say about the school.  They then provided us a lunch.  Justice Rice from the Supreme Court of Colorado was there.  I actually shared a table with her at lunch and got to talk to her on a personal level before she spoke to the entire group.  It was more of a question and answer period than a "lecture". 

All in all, I thought the day was very informative and we had ample opportunity to talk to current students, tour the school, and just get a feel for everything in general.  If you have any specific questions regarding things that current students said, or just in general, feel free to pm me or post here.

Current Law Students / Re: Dogs

Like everyone else, I agree that dogs are great.  Our adorable black lab has been my companion during my husband's medical school days and now as he starts his residency internship and I start law school I know she'll continue to be my best friend and companion.  It is so nice to know someone will be waiting for you when you get home, and someone to hang out at my feet when I am studying.  And, (depending on what kind of dog you have) they are the best work out partners - she never complains about how early we have to get up!

I suggest some good obedience training and a little TLC.  I really don't think you will regret it.

I'll be attending the admitted students day on April 8th.  Although I haven't received anything in the mail regarding it yet, I knew that we would be flying out there to go house hunting so called the admissions office to get more info about it.  I was told that it is scheduled to begin at either 8:30 or 9 and would probably go "all day".  I'm not sure what all day means, but I am thinking 3 or 4.

Be careful how early you notify them.  My employers knew that I had been applying to law school and that I would be following my husband to wherever his residency took him.  I decided to do them a favor and let them know early when my last day would be so that they could work on hiring my replacement and I could train her and make the transition easier on my bosses (I am currently a legal secretary in a large firm). It didn't work that way.  In short - don't give any more notice than you are required to, because there is a great potential that your remaining time will be miserable...may as well lessen the misery as much as possible.

Thanks MeliBelly and shadowcreeper!

Keep your heads up.  Gauging from the activity LSN, it looks like Utah has been pretty busy in the last few weeks, so I am sure you will all hear something soon.  Best of luck to all of you!  :)
