Is anyone else irritated to still be working at dead end jobs with school on the horizon? Every day it's "__ weeks till I can move" May sucks. At least in June there's packing, etc.

Oh, when does Miami send out the orientation packets? Anyone know?

I'm anxious to start as well. No idea about the packets.

Are you guys reading the suggested reading? They list it on the admitted website which I stumbled upon by chance. Did they inform us of that site in writing or via email?

I'm gonna try and read it bc some of it actually looks good, but we'll see

i am about half way through buffalo creek - and it is a good read.  i was trying to think of what the professors would want me to get out of it.  so far, i know a little about the requirements needed to sue in federal court as opposed to state. someone could probably read this book in one weekend.

--just wanted to add that the only reason i am reading buffalo creek is because someone was selling it for a quarter and so i bought it.  the thing about where to sue was only a couple of sentences - nothing major.

looking quickly through all the posts on this section of the site - it looks like the threads for yale, stanford, and harvard are the only ones that have more activity than Miami - very interesting.

thats because miami is awesome.

btw, i think the books on the reading list were mostly chosen just to get us excited about law in general and to introduce us to some very basic applications of law.

the buffalo creek disaster looks like a good read, so i definitely want to read that one.  i might try and read one or two others as well. 

as for activity on this thread, let's try to be number one!!!

I also would read a Civil Action... I know a few people that have had to read that book for one of their first year law courses.. i wanna say Civ Pro, but i'm not too sure.. and after reading the book, there is also the movie..

it seems like a lot of people read a civ pro book before law school.  i think i am going to jump on the bandwagon as well.

I wonder how many people are going to be in this year's incoming class. Anyone know how many there were last year? There are probably quite a few sections at UM, since it seems to be a pretty big law school.
