Tonight was the first real debate meeting. We have what appears to be a promising novice class, with what I believe is a Maryland record of 20ish prospects. We need a 15% retention rate in order to equal the yield of last year (which was, I believe, roughly a 50% retention rate). It does not, however, look as if our tradition of having a 0:1 female to male ratio will hold up, as of the two XX's who showed up, one left half way through the demo, and the other just isn't likely to stick around an all-male team, especially one as chauvenistic as ours. It's a shame since the latter seemed, for whatever reason, like she had potential. Maybe I'm just counting her out too soon.
In any case, I have more reading to do before bed tonight. If I start actually thinking about anything in the near future, I'll be sure to post it here. I'm sure I'll bitch about my day tomorrow. My legal writing class is getting in to some pretty advanced shit - namely appellate courts. Oh shit!
