Hehe. I have the 2Ls trapped in Journal Orientation...mwahaha!

Welcome, newbies and congratulations, summer starters!

And you let them LSD during orientation?

I am a benevolent leader. :D

Obviously! I can see I missed out by not jumping on the journal train. Now, if you had mentioned the LSDing...

Do Summer starters have a lower median LSAT/GPA?

In my case, yes. but probably not true for summer starters as a whole.

My hometown homie here is far too hard on himself.

I have to say that the designation of AA as a breakfast pastry desert is entirely accurate. I've also found it impossible to locate a decent donut... do any of my compatriots have recommendations on this?

I mean, really... the nearest Dunkies is on the far end of Ypsi, I think.

But, on the other hand.... we have hippie hash.

thanks man, but just tellin like it is. speaking of the hometown, I was there today.

hippy hash is good, but there is an even better breakfast place in Ypsi, the bomber.

I don't doubt it. But anything in Ypsi is too far for my pedestrian posterior.

How's the old town looking? You didn't get to Arthur's or Jillie's, did you?

you'll have to get there someday tho, the breakfsat is worth it!

the old town looks the same as always, didn't make it to any of those but did catch the folk festival a few weeks back.

Ok, I'll disagree with HM here, though I am completely in love with him. (So embarassing, really.)

I decided I would only go to Michigan if I could be a summerstarter. And voila, that's what happened. I think HM is really downplaying the bennies of easing into the year, with classes and what not. It frees up a lot of your time to begin becoming involved in organizations and projects right away when school starts (the edboards at UMich are positively riddled with summerstarters), and lends a certain flexibility to the schedule that can be really helpful for when doctrinal classes are beginning to wear one down. He's also, IMO, downplaying the bennies of getting to see, at least once, Ann Arbor weather at its finest - that really nice summer made me want to kill myself a modicum less when the bitter, bitter winter rolled around.

Though hanging out with the same people for months was somewhat restrictive, there's something to be said for really getting to know your section. Now, that thing could be that, by the time March hits, you know every damn opinion that's going to come out of every damn mouth before the hands are even raised, but the knowing people was, to my mind, generally a good thing.

Now, a lot of fallstarters say that summerstarters are clique-ish. This is mildly disingenuous for a couple of reasons. One, so are fallstarters. Every section has their groups, and all of them are accused, at some time or another, of being clique-y by someone else, as HM could probably well attest, given with whom he hangs. ;) Further, I just don't see the summerstarters as being particularly egregious, or even typifying, this grouping instinct. There are plenty of more than friendly summerstarters who hang with all sorts of folk from all sorts of diverse corners of the law school. There are some who stay more unto themselves. Every section has those people - I think summerstarters just suffer in reputation because they're already, to an extent, distanced from the school population at large.

speaking as one of those epeople who stay more to themselves, I'll back my fellow summerstarter up on this.

btw

the email contact for O'Melveny's LA office is sfattyresumes@omm.com .... just thought you'd like to know.

Nice to know I'm not missing anything interesting by bowing out of the firm process!
