I don't think anyone else is interested, but I answered my own question (from much earlier): sledding opportunities at Michigan seem ample. The city park department, apparently, even publishes a few places it recommends for it. http://www.arborweb.com/cg/t0403.htmlAnn Arbor has great sledding hills. The city parks department recommends these sites: Buhr Park, Burns Park, Huron Hills Golf Course, Leslie Park, Leslie Park Golf Course, and Veterans Memorial Park (golf greens and tees are off limits). All sites are unsupervised. Rolling Hills County Park (484–9676) also offers sledding, and rents toboggans and sled tubes. Sledding is prohibited in the U-M Nichols Arboretum. Someone mentioned in another thread that Michigan offers cheap rooms to those who visit during their preview weekends. Does anyone know if that will hold true this year also? I would check the admitted student website, but the information isn't there yet.
I think Vapid works more hours than the rest of us Michigan LSDers on average, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's working more/less. A great deal of how much time you spend working is reading speed from what I can tell. Some people read quickly and feel they spot what they need and others prefer to be more diligent and detailed. While I love Michigan there are lots of things about law school that I find less than appealing, and reading for contracts is high on that list. So anyway, I tend to try to read as fast as possible. That being said, I'm more likely to be behind than some because I also just procrastinate often. I think Vapid's estimation of work time might be high, but not very high. I just don't always get it all done. Other people spend WAY more time than Vapid alluded to, just so y'all know. Oh, and I also don't use a laptop in class, never did and love it. In my section there is only one other person not using a laptop. I think I can pay attention better without typing so much, and I like leaving my computer at home sometimes. Anyway, this week I'll hunker down for my open memo and the start of the moot court problem I'm doing. So it comes and goes I suppose.

If I do get accepted, though, would it be OK if I PM you to ask you some questions about Northwood? Or I could post my questions here if others are interested. I'd be happy to answer Northwood questions, even before you get accepted if you want.
