General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Pepperdine 2010!

Hey, I was going to go to Pepperdine before Loyola matched their $$$ offer. I chose Loyola over Pepperdine because I wasn't sure how I'd fit in to a more conservative/christian environment, but I almost think that Kenneth Starr being the dean is kind of cool, at least it is interesting. I am sure the environment is really not that different from other law schools, and it is in a gorgeous location!

what if you're a girl? can I get away with it if I carry a really cute handbag too? there are some decent jansport wheelie backpacks on ebags.com so maybe I could just wheel it around when no one is looking. I don't think girls can look like tools...

Actually, that attitude is probably why I'm broke.

I got a macbook mainly because I was broke, liked the size, and figured it had everything I needed. Spend the extra $600 on an iphone?

It's not a huge deal, it might have been the tone of the email...or probably the fact that I don't have a camera. They didn't ask us to submit just a photo for ID purposes like GULC did, one you could run to kinko's and get, but rather a digital photo, which we are then to edit with the software that comes with the camera we presumably own. I'm sure there is somewhere I can go and get this done, I just have to figure out where.

I love books, but I think that when I write in the margins, it adds value because I'm brilliant. Think, years from now people will pore through my home library, wondering what I had to add to Descartes' Meditations, or Nozick's Anarchy.

Actually, if they really gave a crap and read it they would probably be like, "why the hell is she scribbling about how much she loves cheese doodles and her boyfriend!?"

I think that I'd never write in a leisure reading book, but there is something about writing  in something you actually have a chance of re-reading, or a very difficult work.  The process of making the notes, then re-reading or skimming the text at a later date and reading your notes is very helpful in some disciplines. And it's what makes my copy of a great work mine.

 I recently found a great pilates class and I've been going twice a week for three weeks and I've already noticed a great improvement.

I'd been doing a ton of cardio and it wasn't doing a daaamn thing.The elliptical is the most depressing thing in the world. I seriously stare at every second that goes by and every calorie I burn. I guess running gets you in good shape, but it effs up the bones in my legs. I hate dieting too, it's so boring.

This would be easier if other people weren't trying to get hot in law school, then I could look better in comparison. I think I'm going to start sabotaging everyone's diet. EAT. CHEESE. NOW!

It looks like you have a good list of schools to apply to. I applied to about 14, and probably got the fee waived at 12 of them. I just wanted a variety of schools to give me more options and leverage, and I wasn't set on a geographic area yet. My family didn't want me to go far away, and I did want to move somewhere completely new, so I sort of needed more time to decide. Four of the schools I applied to were mostly because of fee waivers, though ten of them I was set on applying to. I ended up going to one of the four that I applied to because of fee waivers.

I love writing in books too! I  majored in philosophy in undergrad, and notes in the margins were all the rage for those classes. I'm not very big on highlighting though, but I'm broke so I'll probably get used books that have a ton of highlighting in already.

I don't get what having a master's in library science has to do with not writing in books. Did they literally teach you stuff like..."no talking in the library, no eating in the library, no writing in books"?
