got an assignment in the mail.  i have to prepare a 'legal memorandum' and mail it in by august 1st regarding a case we have to read (deck v. missouri).  doesn't seem too strenuous.. less than 300 words, non-graded, required.

also have to brief it and bring that with me first day of class.

btw registration/orientation is august 19th.  my lease starts july 29th, so i'll be back/forth moving in between then and the 19th.

I have two friends who are 2L's with cars and spots and I don't mind buses.  Not that I have $600 for a Duquesne parking spot but I have to ask... is it worth the money? 

Looking forward to that Deck v Missouri case, I've been doing my work on the beach to give the illusion that I have free time. Ha!  Thanks for all the advice guys, you're making law school seem tough but exciting and not too daunting.  After browsing other schools' message boards I can say with confidence that Duquesne's posters are the friendliest and most understanding. Good luck this fall.

PS - I'm going to call again about getting software for Macs

I like Forbes because to get to Locust you have to drive through the campus and often you have to wade through pedestrians and a line of cars to get into the garage.  Forbes garage is entered, oddly enough, from Forbes Ave, which does not suffer the student congestion.  Both garages are right next to each other, so its not necessarily a big deal, I just think Forbes is faster to get in and out of.

Buy the parking pass.  The buses are hugely inefficient and will cost you the same amount in the end.  But you can't buy back your time.  All of which you will need.  Plus the bus will drop you off down on Forbes and you'll have to hike up the hill every day.

The first assignment is to give you practice and feedback on briefing.  It also serves as a baseline so that the profs can detect anyone who truly can't write early.  Most of the writing profs do in fact use them.  Gilliand has been asleep the pat few years from what I've heard, however.
