Oh, I don't think it's hate. Andrew created this website for law students to use and, being a BUSL student, wants other BUSL students use it. When you look at it, it's actually kind of warm and fuzzy.
Leaving that aside for the moment, I'd encourage you to get in touch with as many of the incoming class as you can. After all, it's easier to put faces together with names than to try to learn (a whole lot of) faces and names all at once.
I'm sure you'll be shocked to hear I did the same thing. There is a definite therapeutic value in airing common questions and concerns. Because we were all in the same situation we all had similiar questions. Of course, having the same questions means not having the answers. So, we often had to turn to outside sources for information--like upperclassmen.
I always thought Lawschooldiscussion.org could be enormously helpful in that regard.
Just my opinion. Good luck next year.
