Thought I'd ask this to all of you pros who have been to the Forums before.  I'm going to the one in Houston in a few weeks, but am I expected to bring anything?  I realize that law school reps will be there, and when talking with them, is it appropriate to have a resume or something? 

As well, business casual wouldn't look out of place, would it?  Thanks for the help!
