edit: 8:30 four days a week. who's with me?

I'm there too. Civ Pro with Arthur (8:30 M,W), Contracts with Abrams (10:30 M-Th), Legal Methods with Price (8:30 Tu, Th), Torts with Satz (2:00 Tu, Th; 12:15 F), Legal Writing, Rsrch, & Advoc with Mathews (2:00 W, F).

I have Civ Pro with Arthur at that time but all of my other classes are taught by different professors.

I'll be in attendance at the "Emory LSD Pre-Orientation Pizza Party" :)  It will be cool meeting everyone.

I'll be a 1L at Emory in a couple of weeks also.  Has anyone else had problems with the financial aid office?  It seems like I have to stay on them to do simple things like faxing a verification form to the lender of my private loan.  Jacy did the school give u a mentor or is this someone you found on your own?

I sent in my promissory note for my lawachiever loan yesterday.  I went with them because my credit score is a little below 700 and a couple of other places turned me down.  Lawachiever loan also turned me down initially but I faxed them an appeals letter giving the reason for a collections on my credit report and they overturned my initial rejection.

I graduated from NC State in May of this year.  My friend is going to practice in North Carolina and I am not too sure about how well NCCU places outside of North Carolina.  My advice for you would be to go to and search for firms in GA that recruit from NCCU and firms that recruit from Miami.  I think if you keep your grades up you will probably be able to get accepted as a transfer student at a school in Georgia.  I also want to practice in GA and that is why I chose to attend Emory despite the fact that I got a scholarship from Miami.  My boyfriend and I are going to have to do the long distance thing for a while too since he still has a semester left at NC State.

I was accepted at Univ of Miami (with a substantial scholarship) but I chose not to attend because I did not want to live or work in Florida during law school and after I graduated.  I'm from North Carolina and I went to undergrad at NC State which is not that far (about 25 min) from Central.  I have a friend that is at NCCU law school and she really enjoys it.  She was not in the top 5% of her class and she was able to land really good summer internships.  She is going into her last year of school and she pretty much already has her job arranged and she is really excited about the firm she will be working for.  However if you want to go into big law NCCU is not the place to go.  Duke places many of its grads outside of NC but Carolina, Wake and Campbell place heavily in NC and many of those grads get looked at first for the larger firms. However, Central is still well respected in North Carolina. NCCU is cheaper than the Univ  of Miami and the city of Durham is cheaper than Miami so if you are trying to save money and aren't interested in BigLaw NCCU is a fine place to go.

Yeah the mixtape you heard is probably what I posted.  I really like Jay but listening to I'm a biter not a writer made me realize that most of the lyrics that I thought were so tight are not even his words. 

Black Law Students / Jay Z Writer or Biter???

I thought this was interesting so I decided to post it.  Below is a link to all of these lyrics that Jay Z copied from other artists. I'm not sure if I see Jay in the same light.  I mean I knew he he bit a couple of Biggie's lines but this is ridiculous.

A little info for the people who are having a hard time getting private loans:  KeyBank initially denied my loan for Emory but I faxed them a letter explaining an issue with my credit report and two days later they reversed the decision and I was accepted for the loan.  My credit score is a 680 so maybe anyone having problems can compare their situation with mine and if its similar perhaps you should go back to the loan companies and ask for reconsideration.  I have been denied several times from various companies for my loan but I was persistent and I finally got the $ I needed.
