Arkansas school news
« on: July 24, 2008, 04:34:14 PM »
I found out today that Arkansas will be sending out class schedules and book list within a week...  They have been reducing class size as well with only 144 or so for this years class, 2 sections of 72.  Legal writing split into 5 sections though.

So they're sending them out before orientation? That's cool. Where did you hear all this?

Thanks!

Dean Miller gave me a personal tour of the building this morning while I was in town.  He seems like a great guy, kind of a throwback.  I really liked him alot.   Never got a chance to tour the school till now.

I like the building, decent layout.  Some of the renovations aren't done yet but change takes time.  The building wasn't as new or nice as some other schools I visited, but the fact that they are renovating and making it nicer goes a long way.

To be honest I wouldn't know much. I sat in on a few classes in the Spring, but not with any of those. I know Snow (Property in the other section) is really cool. I enjoyed that class very much.
