Hey everyone - unless they changed it *back*, you will only have 4 classes first semester FT (Civ Pro, Property I, Torts, and Legal Methods I) and 5 classes second semester (Crim Law, Property II, Contracts, Con Law I, and Legal Methods II). It used to be that you also had Admin Law first year, but they changed this for reasons of cruelty and I doubt they reversed. I think the website just may not have been updated to reflect the new scheme.
You will be very grateful for not having that extra class in your first semester. It makes it much easier to get into the swing of things -- just don't be fooled into complacency by that first semester pace, because it means that second semester feels tons more busy and stressful.
I will PM people about professors I know -- I have only positive things to say, I just feel more comfortable keeping comments about named people off the public board.
