Did someone on staff at the Blade get denied admittance to UT Law and is now forced to go through life a mediocre journalist.  WTH.  The Blade really doesn't seem to like UT Law, this attitude is a real downer.  I turned down Penn St. to attend Toledo, and if anyone is familiar with Penn St. - Dickinson Law's past merger and the dual campus question, let me say that at least the community was overwhelmingly supportive of the Law School itself and it was a source of pride for the community.  Well, the Blade can go to hell, I liked UT and am excited about going.  Just found my appartment a few days ago and made my deposit.  I'll be at Cambridge Woods on Airport, about 2 1/2 miles from UT.

Looks like I'm too late, Blue is correct - rankings will be divided into day and night divisions, with transitional students being day.

You take 3 classes (9 credits) during fall and start going full-time in the spring.  The classes that you will need to make up to be on track (ready to graduate in 3 years) are Torts (4 credits) and Property II (3 credits).  You may elect to take these classes during summer semesters or at night.  At night would be tough because it would add to your load, so best bet would be to make them up first summer and be on track.  The first fall semester you are only taking 9 credits, but you will be in the day division, and in spring you simply start going full-time and having a normal load during the day division.

They must be pretty busy, I haven't received any new mailings in the past few weeks.  I wonder how many of the incomming students are aware of the situation at UT Law.  Despite the support for Dean Closius I doubt Goodridge will change his mind.  It seems like to do so Goodridge would basically have to admit that he made a mistake, something most administrators are simply unable to do.  I just hope the Law School keeps moving forward and improving.

Thank's for the posts, good to know someone is on top of things since I had not yet heard.  I had only met the dean once and he seemed like a pretty decent guy.  The Blade does seem a little calous toward the Law School, I wonder how they would feel about being called a mediocre paper.  Anyway, hopefully Toledo's slip in the rankings was not a sign of things to come (not that rankings are accurate).  I wonder when they will select a new dean and where he/she will come from? 

Good Posts - keep me informed.

Goldy, I am looking for an appartment, could you elaborate on some of the nicer areas to live affordably and within 5 miles of campus or so.  Any info or comments would be greatly appreciated.  Congrats on finishing that first year, glad to hear you enjoyed it.

It was good to meet a few of you from LSD face to face, I hope you enjoyed the picnic.  I went to a going away party for a friend Thursday and stayed out late, so I arrived right at 11:30 and didn't stay too long since I had already toured the facility.  The food was good, meeting a few LSD'ers was cool, and the professor who sat with us seemed decent.  I spent most of my day driving around looking at appartments untill the rental offices closed at 5:00.  I am looking for something fairly close.  Sylvania is about as far away as I want to be, and I was looking mostly in areas to the west of UT.  I want a two bedroom for less than 550 and preferably closer to 450 or 500.  I need a place that accepts a cat and I found a few.  Kenwood was OK, but not great, Hunt Club was also only OK, and a little to far for just OK.  Hampshire was also in that OK category (very cheap, but very small) but I am considering this one since $415 is hard to beat and I AM ON A BUDGET, and furthermore the area seemed good and it was fairly close to campus.  Most of the ones I really liked are closer to 600 and I would like ro live a little cheaper, at least for this first year.  If anyone has suggestions on where to look I would love to hear them, good luck to all future UT'ers and I'm sure I'll see more of you soon.

I will shoot for 11:00 as well.  Driving blue Focus with MI plates.  Also, I'm 6'4" and stocky so I'll stick out in a crowd.

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???

Michigan - Oxford - 1 3/4 hours North of UT.
