I am still packing. I move up on Saturday and I am starting to freak out. I feel like I am never going to be ready and have everything. I feel like all I have been doing is shopping and stressing.
I am also from NJ. Monmouth county here.
Hope your meeting went well at Lionheart

just a heads up... my reading assignments were missing even numbered pages. the chick at ALS was very confused.. y'all probably already checked your stuff..but for those who procrastinate like me.. check it.
I had this problem also. I noticed it last week. They were pretty good about it. They sent me a new package ASAP. Apparently the pages are supposed to be double sided! Someone messed up the copying job.
Hope everyone is getting ready for orientation and moving if they have not done so yet. I am getting really nervous. Can't wait to meet you all.

I like the E & E series. Although, I used it more for preperation for the final than I did for seeing the big picture.
I thought that Understanding Criminal Procedure was useless, but that is my opinion. I bought the book and maybe opened it 4 times. Picking through the relevant informatoin became time consuming because it covered a ton of cases that were not assigned to us. Although, if you are looking to read something to feel out the big picture, this book could be useful for you. I bought Gilberts and that worked well for me.

I do not move in to Albany until the 13th because I am living in the on campus apartments. I am not sure if you guys want to wait that long to meet up, but if you do I am up for meeting for a drink, or getting together for lunch or something.
I think writing a little bit about ourselves is a good idea, but I tend to be a bit long winded, so I apologize up front!
My name is Kim. I am 23 years old. I will turn 24 during orientation week! I have lived in NJ all my life, so I am looking forward to moving and trying something new. I am close to my friends and family, so I will miss them like crazy, but a 3 hour drive home is not that bad. Hopefully I have the time to get home every once and awhile.
In college I was a double major in Communication and Art with concentrations in Public Relations and Graphic Design. I did not take part in Greek life, but I was inducted into Lambda Pi Eta the communications honor society. I also held leadership positions in the student newspaper and the Public Relations Student Society of America. I worked two jobs my through college, as a marketing manager during the week and a customer service representative during the weekends.
After college, I got a job as a marketing manager for an international home décor company. Unfortunately, they went through a merger and I was laid off in December. In January I started working as a Program Director for the YWCA. I enjoy the job, but it is definitely not for me in the long run...my last day is Friday the 5th, so I am pretty excited about that!
I also went back to school for my masters degree after I graduated from undergrad. My masters is in Corporate and Public Communications. I did my mini dissertation/defense on the topic of Relational Development in Massively Multiplayer Online Role Play Games. I am in the midst of writing a book chapter on electronic tribalism. I have spoken at a few conferences about my thesis findings and my thesis is under review for publication. I love the topic of online communication and relationship development and since technology is always changing it is a fascinating topic to explore.
As for hobbies, I love to read (anything horror, mystery, or sci fi), I like hard rock/heavy metal/alternative music, and I enjoy going to concerts. I enjoy going for walks, painting, and photography. I can be really shy at times, but I open up pretty quickly once I get comfortable.

Congrats on your acceptance!! You already got the information packet. I am still waiting for mine. I got accepted on Monday of last week. Hopefully it gets here soon, I am dieing to know all of the details.
I was also thinking about going part time and getting a full time job while out there, but the part time class schedule was very weird. It was either 8 to 12 or 1 to 5. I knew I could not get a good full time job working around those hours. Instead I am going to go full time. Which is really exciting for me because through undergrad I worked 2 jobs at a time, and when I went for my masters I was working full time. I still plan on getting a part time job, but I was told we could only work 20 hours a week tops, so it will be different having all of this extra time.
I am also waiting on my tuition letter to scope out all of the financial aid stuff. I remember filling out all of the forms a few months ago, but other than that I have no idea.
It would be great to meet you all for a drink or for lunch or something before orientation. Would be nice to have a few farmiliar faces during orientation.

I sent you a PM. I have not gotten any info about orientation yet. I hope there is some time in that schedule to kick back and figure out a bit about the area.
Did you get a schedule yet, or do you know what classes we will be taking during the first semester. I tried to find it on their website, but I could not find it.

I was in Albany for about a week in June. There are a TON of places in the area if you want to meet up for a drink. Wolf Road has a ton of restaurants and malls and what not. It is mostly chain restaurants, but they all serve liquor. Then there was a road near the SUNY Albany campus that had a really fun outside bar. The food was pretty good there too. I am drawing a blank on the name of the bar, but I am sure it will come to me.
I know a few other people who are going to be attending Albany, not sure when they are all moving down though, but they should be situated by the weekend before orientation starts.
Hope to see your guys soon!

I will be moving up on Saturday the 13th. If you guys want to get together before orientation begins, I would love to join you!

Just wanted to say hi. I will be attending Albany in the fall. Just found out that I gained admission through the AAMPLE program, and I am really excited. Hope to see you all there!

Good luck guys! I am still trying to decide between the Albany AAMPLE program, or the Widener TAP program. I might see you in class in the summer.
