So far Im dissapointed. I was expecting to have to work much harder. I know it is early, but last night I watched TV for 3 hours and then slept for 10. Now Im watching pre-season football and golfing tomorrow?. Nine credits, at this point in time, seems too light. I enjoy it, but I feel like Im not being pushed very hard. The three day weekend offers plenty of time to get work done for contracts and civ pro. I know a lot of you have other commitments and responsibilities like family that are also priorities. My problem is that I have none. I need to join a club or something. You finish your work and you can talk to someone. I just get in bed and watch ESPN haha.
LRW seems like it will be relatively bland, but easy. I really like O'Connell. She seams very reasonable. Civ Pro seems the hardest, with contracts in the middle. I noticed that we have a 5 day weekend coming up too since LRW is cancelled for Tuesday after labor day.
I have this transitional thing all figured out. The school is so obsessed with rankings (a good thing) that they sat around and thought, "hmmmmm, how can we raise our admission stats without making the class smaller thus losing revenue and do so fast? Oh I got it, lets admit only the highest GPAs and LSATs into full time day and everyone else we will put in some other program that will still graduate in three years but not affect our incoming full time day statistics. That way we tell US NEWS that our median LSAT is 159 for full time day when next semester the median LSAT for full time day will be 156, but they wont know that."
What you guys think about that?
All in all though, I am very satisfied with the school. I like my classmates, faculty, and even the campus. Toledo on the other hand is a terrible and boring city. My roommate just came here from Istanbul and thinks the US sucks. I feel obligated to take him to Chicago or something one of these weekends. I almost wish that I was commuting though, because Im living above a bunch of freshmen who are blasting music until 3am everynight and begging me to buy them beer. The main reason I decided to drop all of the money and live here was because I was expecting to have to read 300 pages a night and didn't want to waste time in the car.
Next semester guys will be a reality check.
