What kinda DJ? Hip-hop? Techno? Other? Just curious, I might need some beats if I ever get serious about rapping again. My moniker, Intuition, is the name I created for my alter ego when I recorded a few rap songs during undergrad.

Pumpkin, if you think that's funny, I have tons of stories about working in a comedy club. One involves me, Lewis Black and copius nudity. Another involves strippers and the Amish. Who says DC is a stuck-up town?

Intuition,

I used to be a hip-hop dj on the radio and played anything from top 40 to house music when I deejayed parties. I eventually gave it up as I grew older. I felt that hip-hop started growing extremely wack when I left high school. I also realized that it was extremly wack to say things like "extremely wack" when you're a 25 year old white male. I guess that hip-hop kind of left me at the same time that I left it. But I still reserve the right to say "word" or "word to your mother" at any opportunity. I've evolved into a critic instead of an artist.

I still listen to old stuff, mostly dated 1980-1998. I've kept my collection from then, so I would be happy to help you with beats. I also know lots of people in Chicago who are in the scene, so they might be able to help you. If you like hip-hop from 80-98, you should definitely check out oldschoolive.com.

From that last post, it also appears that I am too old to know how to use this messageboard. I responded to pumpkin and intuition in the quoted section.

anyone planning on biking to school?  is this even possible?  i dont even know how many books 1Ls have to carry with them at all times. I am guessing the August - October weather also makes this somewhat difficult - i really dont want to be sweating in class.  not to mention the safety in biking through the busy traffic.

My waiter one of the nights I was visiting told me that I should get a place at South Beach and buy a scooter.  He said it is really easy to drive to UM on a scooter.  Sounds like suicide to me considering how many bad traffic accidents I have heard about in Miami.

by the way, the lockers i saw at the law school looked as if they had been bought at a garage sale from the oldest high school in south florida.  i am not sure how many of my personal belongings i will be willing to house in mine.

I live to incriminate myself. That's why I'm going to Miami. Scantily clad women in a sub-tropical environment surrounded by an influx of Cubans sounds like a prime opportunity for incrimination. Last time I was there I had a run-in involving a transsexual stripper and the Catholic chuch.

All I have to say is "Bienvenido a Miami."


On a side note, is anyone going to be in Miami in June?

exactly how many are there of us from LSD that are attending Miami in the fall anyway? Last year's entering class was divided into eight sections. I wonder how many sections we will have.

Something like 40 kids who graduated from the University of Michigan were in last year's entering class....I'm from MI and went to undergrad here, anyone else from MI or who went to school in MI going to Miami?

Where is everyone from and where did they go for undergrad?
LSAC GPA 3.63, LSAT 158

With a higher than usual hurricane season expected:

Do the high rise apartments in Miami experience any problems? I dont really mind being stuck in my apartment for a few days, but I would really hate to pack and evacuate - it seems like a big pain.  I have lived in MD all my life (btw - I went to UofMD, College Park) and really had to only deal with snow storms - which arent that bad as long as you stay indoors.

Side note: I visited the Law School in 2003.  One of the admissions staff told me that they were expecting around 410 incoming students and that this number was a little high, but they were prepared.  I think they said they were shooting for around 370.  I imagine with them not going to the waitlist this year, that they are expecting around 400 or higher.  I was also told that they were a few part-timers in the mix, but Miami is trying to phase out their part-time program.
