Perhaps "realistic" would be a better word.

Advisors have been posted. 

Also, is anybody bringing anything to orientation?

A notepad, pen, and the assignments. Connelly, where did you find the advisor list?

If you go to the law school website (http://www.law.gsu.edu) and click the link for New Student Orientation, there should be another link for advisors.

You'll have to use your "law id" to access the info.  But it doesn't really tell you much of anything.  It just says:

"Your advisor is Professor X."

That's it.  Hope that helps.

The application process is finally over.  The countdown has begun...

I finally paid attention to the schedule  ;D and realized that parts of orientation will have both FT and PT students together.  That's nice.

The sessions themselves are great.  As an evening student, however, I have two issues with orientation:

1)  The orientation (which is "mandatory") starts around 3:00-4:00 each day for the evening students.  There is a reason I am an evening student, and getting off of work around 2:00 is not it.  I understand we only do it once, and I was obviously there, but I wasn't a fan of that.

2)  The long check-in and reception on the first day seemed like a big waste of time to me - especially since I was cutting out of work early to attend it.  I understand there is value in having us mingle, but it's not really helping me get through law school by scarfing down finger food and listening to nervous chatter.

The sessions themselves and the faculty and staff have been phenomenal, however, so my two gripes are very minor in relation to how great orientation has been so far.

Does anyone have Stephens for Contracts? If so, have you been able to get the casebook?

I went today, but they didn't have any.  Luckily, I have the 6th edition from a friend.  However, b.c of the warning that all previous editions are obsolete, if someone would be so kind and post the case, if there is on, that is in the first 8 pages.

It would be much appreciated.
Thanks.
