Thanks, it's good to know it's the luck of the draw between the two towers anyway.  You can walk between the two without going outside, right?  I'm not going to get to come to ASW because I decided that being on the beach in the Dominican Republic that week is better than being in Chicago.  ;D  I came out to visit the school in January and loved it, but it was too cold to tour housing.

The last two will probably NOT be representative 1L classes, or even law school classes. 

Contracts with Shahar would be fine, but he doesn't do much Socratic.  If you can avoid the beaten path, I would sit in on Cox's Civil Procedure class at 2:45, room III.

They do.  Helmholz had one.  The problem is that they tend to keep them away from prospective students, because it's tough to watch. 

Out of my current classes, I would say that Cox (Civil Procedure) and Baird (Contracts) have the strongest Socratic.

Are you sitting in on a lunch?  I'm always happy to talk to prospectives who read this website -- yes, in person.

All those classes sound pretty bleh to me. But then, they're all morning classes. And possibly Friday classes. And aside from 1Ls and those making huge blunders, nobody takes Friday classes.

Ditto.  I'm a 1L who hasn't had Friday classes since Gersen's Torts back in Nov.

Cox's class is today, not Friday.

Those eagle eyes for detail must have served you well on Strahi's exam.
