One more thing

National Jurist magazine ranked the N.C. Central University School of Law as the #1 Best Value in the country.  For the 2nd year in a row.

That’s one of the main reasons I’m here, but the magazine explains it far more eloquently than I did.

For folks who don’t have physical access to the magazine and want to read it online, check it out here.

Learning from my mistakes…

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Sep 3, 2009 in Fail

… just kidding.

I made some minor lifestyle changes at the start of the week to improve the odds of me not repeating old habits. So far I’ve been successful, and today was no exception. I was even awake and coherent enough to take a 7:30am phone call from a classmate asking me about the 3 general exceptions to the Mailbox Rule in our Contracts class ((i) if the offer itself specifically states a condition(s) that means the MBR doesn’t apply, (ii) if the offer is an option contract, and (iii) if the acceptance follows a prior rejection).

But I seem to have an impressively impressive ability to be late to class.

The morning commute typically takes 10-12 minutes. I usually leave 20 minutes before class so I’ve got a cushion for days when I hit a bundle of red lights (typically 9-10 of 16). Today I was up early enough that I even left 25 minutes ahead of time, just for fun.

And then somehow got stuck behind a frequently stopping school bus on a 2-lane road.

No government incompetence this time. I didn’t oversleep. It wasn’t even a big rig blocking me.  My timing was just that perfect. To get stuck. Behind a school bus.

I get to the door just in time to see Professor Contracts walking back to the podium after closing it.  So instead of going over consideration doctrine in Contracts class, I’m in the Fishbowl reading the news. Fail.

At least there’s Wolfpack football tonight, the end of the week tomorrow, ECU-ASU football on Saturday, beautiful pool weather on Sunday, and a day off Monday :D
