**It is very important that you allow yourself enough time to relocate to Oklahoma City, find housing and get your personal affairs in order before Orientation and Legal Analysis begins. You will be extremely busy during the first few weeks of school (including Orientation Week).  Make sure you give yourself time to take care of moving in, setting up utilities, finding the grocery store, and learning your way around the city before classes begin.
