Happy Halloween

Since people's Tele-Bears appointments are rolling around and the 1Ls have elective bidding coming up, can we bump up the course selection thread?

Also, Bayern's course enrollment page is no longer being updated. The horror! (we shouldn't have let the man graduate...)

Speaking of administrative stuff, I am pretty unhappy with the changes to the add/drop system. I think it was a great strength that you could always adjust your schedule until the last minute. Stuff happens and the system should be set up so we can address it. While we do get grades in "real" time now (read: real slow time, not really really slow time), that small benefit is not worth losing the flexibility of adjusting our schedules until the end of the semester.
Also, this is yet another example of how the Boalt administration makes major changes that affect us with ZERO INPUT. Perhaps instead of spending all their time cooking up questionable policy changes they should organize some information sessions on how we make sure we don't screw up our bar application and bar exam registration. A particular member of the Class of 2006 who will be taking the February bar exam could tell you it might make a difference.

3:14--I'll give you that it would be nice if the administration put forth a little more effort than a tiny announcement in the back of the BBB about registering for the Bar and the MPRE and all that, but if you can't figure out your schedule 10 weeks into a 14 week semester, even a big flashing sign might not be enough for you. I think you're one of those people who would complain no matter what. Say the administration put a notice in everyone's locker about a policy--you'd complain that not everyone checks their locker. If they asked professors to announce things before classes, you'd say not everyone goes to class. "Stuff happens" might be an argument for the exercise of discretion, but it's not a blanket cause for being lazy and indecisive. If you want more input on policy changes, BHSA has committees you can join. Oh wait--those applications were announced over email, and maybe not everyone checks their email.

What's really going to suck about this new grade-posting regime is that I will now be checking bearfacts every two hours for a solid month instead of just a few times on the day grades are supposed to go up.
