I will be moving out to Pittsburgh in the next couple weeks. Is there anyone elsegoing to be there this early? I know no one, so it would be great to hangout with others from our incoming class.

I have Prep Tests 40-45. 43,44, & 45 are unmarked. I also have a Barron's and Kaplan study guide. I would like to unload these for $20. All or nothing. The $20 is more for the prep tests, but the other guides are helpful to a degree. I just don't want these to go to waste.
Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
I keep hearing people talking about paying their loans back for the next 20 years, but doesn't this seem unreasonable. I expect to rack up a debt of 80K-100K, but I figure this can be paid off in only a few years. The way I see it is I survive off 25K/yr now, so a job of 75K+ will allow me to cut into my debt significantly. Of course I would say I would spent 10K-15K per year more just because it is there to spent, that leaves 30K per year to cut into the debt. I know everybody's situation is different, but for a single person living like a pauper for a few years seems well worth it to clear debt. Is my reasoning skewed?

I just received a waitlist letter from Gonzaga yesterday. Yet I have been accepted to Pitt, a tier 1. What gives? Not that I care too much, but I thought this was kind of odd. Anyone else run into any admission anomolies such as this?

I have had mine for a couple months now and I just busted a string for the first time. I am not too sure how to replace it. I have read online that you need to weave through a hole in the back. Is this correct? I believe there might be a panel on the back that may contain these holes, but I am not sure. Because when I go buy strings after work I don't want to ask this stupid question and look like a moron, it would be helpful if anyone could help me out. Thanks in advance.
I sent two LOR's and my transcript to LSAC and then sent in my applications. Then I got a third LOR which was just processed. LSAC now is charging me another $12 to send the 3rd LOR to schools which have already requested my report. I even looked into this once I sent in the 3rd LOR. The website insinuated they would send out follow up reports as new information came in, but never did they mention this would cost me. Does anyone else think this is messed up?
I have 2 processed LOR's and 1 which has been mailed to LSAC, but not yet processed. As I understand it, this third letter will be distributed to all school requesting reports once the LOR is processed. But I am not sure. Does anyone know if the letter will be automatically sent, even to school in which it is not required but accepted?
Thanks for any input!
