Seriously, why do all cable companies have to suck so much?  After getting the run around about disconnecting my Time Warner Cable from my old place, now the cable in the LC isn't working properly (at least in my section). 

Also, glad to see the EFGH crowd well represented.  I haven't had a chance/the heart to head down to Ulrich's to pick up books, and the ones I ordered online are locked in "the annex" which no one seems to have keys to...curious. 

Hope to meet some of you soon! Stop by if you get a chance.

I just checked out google calendar, it looks pretty awesome.

Does it have any advantages over the full outlook though?  I've gotten used to the integrated calendar functionality that I use for work, and outlook somehow seems more professional.  I'm definitely going to keep my gmail account for personal stuff though; I like to keep it separated.

The major advantage in my view is portability.  Whereas my Outlook calendar is tied to my personal computer (and worse, emails in my outlook inbox are tied to it too), I can access my Gmail and google calendar from my laptop, my desktop, work, the library, etc.

I have a feeling I'm going to be doing some serious betting come November.

-- business cards with my name, email, phone, graduation year, and school logo

By the way, there were two interns in my office last year who had these.

There are a lot of schools where law student orgs sell them as a fundraiser.  It's pretty funny to think you'd make them prior to going to school, but they're not outrageous to have.

I just switched from using Outlook Express on my computer to exclusively using the Gmail web platform (including the calendar).  I don't understand why anyone would go back.  Google is the greatest corporation of all time.

Yeah, finally got into row 45 (sec 27). Took long enough.

Home schedule this year sucks, team probably will too, but I'm calling a victory in Columbus this year (we'll play the spoiler).

yeah, right

go bucks

Alright, so I sent back those forms they sent us about GradPlus last week... haven't heard anything yet. Anyone have any news on this?

I assume that the FinAid office gets the ball rolling on the process once you turn the forms in?

i called the office yesterday to confirm that they had processed my application that I submitted a few weeks ago, and they said that they did and my application was approved. They're just waiting for further information/instruction from the federal government about loan processing (maybe bc they're the direct lender), so right now we just have to sit tight and wait.

I love that the exact question I was about to ask has already been asked and answered....superb.

Yeah, I second the previous poster's comments.  How much time did you spend on and around campus?  I have lived in Columbus for a while now, and I love it.  Unfortunately, the shadiest part of the city is directly to the southeast of the law school, but seriously, most of Columbus is just lovely.  Plus, there's WAY more to do than in Bloomington.  In addition to having a job, your spouse will probably want some entertainment while you're holed up in the library.

No, I don't want to get my car torched while driving through Columbus.

The Credit-Worthy loan on Michigan's page looked like you needed either 2 years continuous employment OR a co-signer, but then looking at their website, it looked like you needed BOTH.  Anyone run into the same thing?  As a fresh-out-of-undergrad kid, it's probably not meant for me anyway.  And that 2.5% did look so nice, too.
