Question for the current students: a couple of the classes are scheduled five days a week but say they will meet an average of four days a week.  How does this work out during the semester?

Bascially you'll never meet fridays but the profs have the block reserved just in case they need to schedule make up classes or whatever. 

Not true if you have Primus!!!!  Then it's most Mondays off and meet basically every Friday.

Quick: what's your heart rate right now?  Still pounding from the all-around?  I was thinking of you all evening while I packed.

Yeah... I know I should be tired, but I just can't come down from my high. :)

It's all because I'm wearing my USA Gymnastics sweatshirt.  I can't believe I didn't wear it the other night!

I knocked on the door of your office today, btw... didn't know when you were coming back.

When do they disburse loans? During orientation or after class starts? I'm broke-ass poor so I'm a prisoner to the system until I get $$ from the U.

Last semester it was a couple of days before classes started.  I don't thing it came early enough for me to buy my books with it--I think I ended up putting them on my credit card and paying it back from the disbursement.

I'm in MN. Anyone have the scoop on Hershovitz (Torts), Bagenstos (ConLaw) or Prescott (CrimLaw)?

GCoop.

You're lucky to have Hershovitz.  My favorite professor last year for sure.  Young energetic professor, one of the brightest people you will meet and a really great guy to have first semester because he'll make sure you understand lots of the procedural stuff happening in cases (something lots of other people ignore).  Hershovitz is a philosopher, so you'll get a lot of the counterarguments to the law & econ arguments you normally get in Torts.

I haven't had Prescott (yet), but he's also a fairly young law & economics type that people seem to like.  I think his final is a take home.

Bagenstos is a visiting professor, presumably roped into teaching ConLaw when Scott Shapiro left.  He's from WashU and is a relatively big deal in disability law.  I don't know anything about his particular con law interests or areas of expertise.

Section mate! Do you know if you are M or N? The difference is in the Legal Practice time slot.
