I joined a yahoo group dedicated to hastings and there is a thread in it from some time ago in the past that gives a link to some "rate your professors" site and a whole bunch of hastings profs are on it. You'll have to do some searching.....but it seems you are sorta amped and would love to spend your time tracking down this info.....

Ok, this sucks. I haven't received anything in the mail from school since I changed my address and I don't know what the hell the deal is. What have I missed? I think the post office is broken. Crap.

I heard there was some registration thing, no? I called admissions and they were like, nope, no electives....I's like "Wah?" They's like "Shah."

Now this...I'm going to miss out on everything. :(

Thats it, I'm quiting.

Oh, and oscar. With lifting I go in spurts, I lifted hardcore this year and packed on about 10 lbs of muscle before I met my G/F and then ceased to do anything in life besides be with the lovely Trishmeister. Now I go like once a week or less. But once I get to school I think I want to hit it up for sure 3 or 4 days a week. I play some b ball too, but only for fun, I'm not good, just straight from the hood.

PS - I can't wait to sue people, just thought I should let you all know....justice is served....check please.....paycheck....

Hey Oscar, do you lift? I could use a lifting buddy. I think it would be a good way to spend some sort of social time with people. I've been thinking about hitting the gym in the mornings before class. What do you think?

Alright, so I have decided against finding an apartment during orientation and actually flying out soon to go apartment hunting in the city (curiously, did anyone ever receive information about living in the Towers, because I never received any information; I was using the Hastings website and stumbled across some seemingly important information [checklists, housing] - I feel as though I should've received some sort of "Welcome to Hastings" packet after I sent in my deposit).

I'll be armed with my laptop computer, Google Earth, and, and hopefully I'll be able to find something quickly.  Any tips?

Quick question to those more familiar than I am: My financial aid -- grants, federal loans, and private loan -- will be deposited into my student account at Hastings.  How will I get access to funds to pay for such things as the apartment, food, supplies, books, etc.?  A lump sum check at the beginning of the semester, I assume?  Therefore my housing deposits will have to be paid for out of pocket?

I feel you on that cause I've felt like a lost puppy half the time. I'm not sure if the school has processed my loans yet or not. I haven't received a bill. I haven't received anything since May. People spoke of some sort of registration materials....hmmmm, nope not I. Nada. I heard the administration was bad, and I can see why.

I'll be shipping out early in August, probably around the 1st or so, set up my place with a bed. Then my GF is going to fly in, help me pick out some decor, and hit up the city for a couple days.

I'm pretty stoked....

I just want to move now. Anyone want to let me crash with them for awhile? I'm Minnesotan so I can bring lots of hot dish, rhubarb pie, ice fishing equipment, and Kevin Garnett.

Any takers?

I lavish my girlfriend with love and adoration when I'm in the real world.

PS - Nobody died when Clinton lied. Bush lied, get over it, and ask yourself if you agree with the real reasons we are in Iraq or if you think there is a better alternative course to securing our interests. Setting up a democracy may be an effective measure in the long run, I'm not entirely opposed to this strategy. Everyone sits around and debates the smoke.    

Michael Moore is a GOOD MAN.

Misrepresenting the truth is not honest and certainly not the quality of a good man.

Some people might say that about our current President....

Some might.  I don't.

Agreed.  The President didn't lie, and certainly didn't lie to make a buck like Moore did.

When you take a country to war on a set of premises that aren't remotely true, I would say thats a lie. He tries to hide behind the intelligence community and blame them, but the rationale for war was a contrived pretext i.e. a big f-ing lie. Bush wanted a war (the downing street memos confirmed what rational people have known all along)and he lied to get one. Bush lied. Debating whether or not he lied is moot at this juncture, because he did, so take your head out of your ass. If you want to have a debate, debate the theory and policy he subscribes to that pushed him to fabricate the prextext for war. We need a secured access to oil on our terms. Current global supply results in shortages in the next 3 years and unless significant reserves are discovered, that shortage will get drastically exacerbated. Without a Saudi Arabia sized discovery in the next 25 years, the world will see near oil depletion. Given these circumstances, promoting democracy in the middle east with close ties to an opec member, probably the only democratic member, is a far better position to negotiate from to keep our supply of oil constant and low cost. China is making deals in South America to secure their oil needs, and that need is also why they've made an over-priced bid for unical oil. World leaders are not dumb to the fact that oil is increasingly scarces and unless provisions are made to secure it, its going to cost us big in the long run.

So in the short run, American's are dying in the quaint little terrorist training ground. Iraq. The terrorist solidiers in Iraq will be the ones with the training and know how to find their ways into our buses, subways, and buildings. Thanks George. Maybe if we used that money we spend on the oil war to develop a new energy source, one we could sell the technology to the rest of the world for at a hefty premium, we could extricate ourselves from the middle east all together and let them blow each other to hell instead. Thats the debate.

Is this a war on terror? Whats the benefit? Kill as many as we can? That seems to be our strategy. Well, why not, it worked in vietnam, so it should work here too. Soon there will be more dead and wounded american soldiers than in the 9/11 attack itself. If bush wants to save american lives from terrorists why is he sending our brothers, sisters, cousins, moms, dads, and neighbors to die at their hands?Perhaps a democratic iraq will be able to spread democracy in the middle east and root out terrorism in the long run. Otherwise, and please inform me, how does this war keep a dirty bomb, nuclear device, or suicide bomber out of the united states? My answer is that it doesn't and thats why this the iraq war is not a war on terror.

None of that "hatings"! I don't like. Aren't we all going to be a happy bunch of friendly law student??? With a healthy dose of ambition and competetion, of course ;-).

Of course we will be! We'll be in San Francisco. I don't know about anyone else, but getting out of minnesota for a bit will be a great change. I <3 Minneapolis, but we've had our time together.

Now the question is, will I ever actaully get to experience San Francisco being a law student/laywer....that is the question.

Hey Grubesacs, you didn't mean to refer to Hastings as Hatings did you?

Of course I did. I don't make mistakes.
