*shakes fist, gives evil eye*

Hehe, does Yale even have sections?;)  Or is it more like a large classroom where everyone works on their own projects and reads extremely dense and intellectual books?

We do have sections (I think 8 or 9 of them), but we don't get our assignments until we arrive on campus for registration.

Just got mail today, including a packet from Prof. Meltzer welcoming me to section 2 (no change from what I saw on MyHLS a few days ago).

Now, I've got some alarm clock shopping to do. :-\ :-\ :-\

you need to look under the 2007-2008 course list, for the fall and then the spring.  we'll be torts 4, crim 4, contracts 4, etc.

in the fall, we pretty much start at 10-10:20 each day, and end at between 4 and 445.  contracts and proprty in the spring.

Do we get all our books at the law school bookstore (it seems so small in there to carry books for hundreds of courses)?  And do all the classes typically have 1st day reading assignments?

1) You may do so, or you may get them elsewhere.  Most 1Ls go to the bookstore, and the bookstore people are ready to fill your basket full of everything you need--you'll just tell them your section.  I had bought the books through online retailers in advance for the most part.  Casebooks are unusually expensive for no reason.

2) Most, I think.

has anyone figured out yet how the whole buying a computer thing works with your student budget...? somebody said something about them deducting it from your student contribution? does this mean you get that much more aid?

i am currently abroad too and trying to figure everything out from here. not going to be back in the country until the 28th..but it's worth it

It does deduct from your contribution.  The effect of this depends on the circumstances.

Does anyone have the link for the suggeted reading list?  I can't seem to find it; maybe it got lost with the J.D. Admissions' site retro-fit.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the courthouse.

I'm in Section 6, why did someone say it's going to be the most difficult section ever?

How does one know which books to buy for each class? I want to get a head start on purchasing mine from Amazon, but don't want to go through the trouble of returning unnecessary books and such...  :-\

I was imitating the response of another poster around here who always gives that answer when someone asks about the difficulty of upcoming LSAT exams.  No need to worry (at least not about my comment)  ;)
