What up peeps?  First day of orientation and all I can say was it was a trip...definitely an experience...I will refrain from blasting anyone.  However we did have a "White tee" guy but he could pull it off because he had on gym shorts, flip flops and gold fronts...and I'm not even lying...other than that it was pretty boring...Oh yeah a prof. that was talking picked on a blind guy because she thought he was sleep, he was just turned sideways so he could hear her better..

I feel so bad for laughing at this when I first read it..

Imagine how I felt I was there and I "DID" laugh ;D ;D


soooo WRONG!!!

You're gonna have to keep us posted about your Orientation and the pre-orientation picnic.  With all due respect to seu, wear something very casual to the picnic or you WILL be severely overdressed.  But, *&^%, I don't have to tell YOU that.  You've gone to Berkeley longer than I have. 

P.S. - left you a voicemail. did ya get it?

i've bought about 3/4 of my books 3 weeks ago, mostly thru half.com, and those suckas have yet to arrive.   >:(  one of my roommates bought a book thru there and the seller just kept her money.  what i'm saying is, if you know what books you need, you should try to get them ASAP bc you never know what's gonna happen.   :-\

and btw ruskie, i wasnt being critical of what ppl were wearing just to be a pain in the ass.  it's just that some ppl took it a little too far.  its as one of the 2L's told us-- this a professional school we're attending.  ppl (fellow students, 2-3L's, and professionals w/ the ability to help make or break you) will be watching and listening to everything we say and do, dress included.

Good to hear you started though.  How many days is your orientation?

Those kinds of comments at berkeley would make people think YOU were uptight.  But, I guess it's a different culture at our school.  People wear whatever the hell they want to class, orientation, admit day, etc.  Those occasions are casual, but people dress up where it counts, i.e. interviews, firm recruitment events, cocktail parties.  There was a guy in my class who wore a suit to orientation and for the rest of the year he was known as "that prick who was trying to outdo everyone else at orientation."  In an environment where everyone else is fairly laid-back, the easiest way to make a name for yourself is to look/act uptight.  I am sure the opposite is true in more conservative schools.  I think the 1L's should just get a sense of the culture of the school and then pick out what to wear.

it's unfortunate that if a person chooses to wear a button down shirt with french cuffs and some slacks because it's outside of the norm.. they'd be labeled as uptight..

bless their hearts...

We're not accepting this CHANGE UP in the rules. Period. American presidents have been in the bed with organized crime, corporate pilferers, and the like for years. And all u want to put on this man is that his pastor said "Gotdamn America?" Hell, America.U got off pretty damn well, if you ask me...

Nupe nupe nupe, seriously though, are there no 2L's or 3L's you can holler at who had your professors??

You don't wanna come out of pocket like that if you don't have to.  Save that money for something important, like long island iced teas after finals.
