So This is Law School?
UC Berkeley has some of the most beautiful buildings. Is Boalt Hall one of them? Not on your life. Come to Boalt if your diet is lacking asbestos, lead, and other toxic chemicals. Surpisingly, Boalt is not the most highly contaminated building on campus. I can't say anything bad about the classrooms. But then again I have a nuclear powered laptop so I didn't really need electrical outlets anyway (they installed outlets in the large lecture halls this past summer and during the semester all the small seminar rooms were properlly equipped as well).
Some are just a pain in the ass, others are strange, yet others offer memorable and not so memorable lines here, here, here, and here.
Before coming to law school a friend of mine, let's call her umm Lindy, told me about some of the stereotypical law students based in large part on The Paper Chase and Legally Blonde (e.g. the guy going nuts studying or the chick with pink rollie thing). While these have largely been proven true, there is something general I'd like to say about my fellow students. They are for the most part all brilliant and all well grounded socially (no mad scientists walking the halls and talking to themselves). And I think that's what I'm most thankful for...meeting all these incredible people and actually getting to know them...even if they did give me an inferiority complex for a while.
