I have a language question. A Russian friend used the phrase "nesluchainoye covpodenie" (I hope that is a clear enough transliteration). Is this an idiomatic phrase or something clever that he came up with himself?

PS I found out yesterday I did get into Michigan from the waitlist. I am excited. Any Russians going there? They do offer a joint degree in Russian and Near-East (I think that's the name) studies.

I wonder if University of Michigan has a Russian student society of some form? I know that many schools have it (Berkley, UCLA, Columbia, New York, even the University of Hawaii). I was one of the organizers of Russian Student Society on my campus as an undergrad, so it's something that I would be very happy to get involved with on some level as a law school student. It's a great way to practice the language and keep in touch with the culture. Even if there is no formal student organization, does anyone know if there is much of a Russian community at the University of Michigan?  ::)

I founded the one at Berkely. Glad to see that it's becoming an asset!

I think Penn has one, but I am not sure about Mich. 

If the school you end up choosing doesn't have one, you can always get one going like I did!

I know that Berkley has a very good Russian Student Society on campus (from what I've heard), even better than ours at UW. You started a Russian student society, Ksyusha? Is it the one that's called something like "Russian Business and Law Student Association," is that the one?

Privet vsem!!! I am definitely in…Russian by birth and citizenship….Didn’t decide on school yet but for sure will join (or organize) the Russian Society. Did anyone graduate from Russian law school and now going back to the US JD?

No, I did my undergrad here in US.

I don't know who Ksyusha is, but the RBLSA has been around for many years.
Yes, at the undergrad. I didn't mean for my response to be misleading. I founded the Eastern European and Central Asian Law Student Association at Boalt.  I don't really know what groups there are at the undergrad, but law students don't tend belong to them, mostly for logistical reasons.

I have a friend and classmate who is doing this now.
