Seems to me like they have made decisions already.  Check out this link and see what your status is

Incoming 1Ls / private loans

How has everyone gone about securing private loans?  I'm thinking of using the Access Group, but have no clue if it's the best decision.  My tuition is due on Monday and as of right now I'm going to borrow from my parents until my loans kick in.  I hope they can let me send that check to them because at that point my tuition will be paid.  I'm also holding out a glimmer of hope of getting accepted off a waitlist so how will that work with my Stafford and private loans??  I'm so clueless when it comes to paying for school.  I was fortunate enough not to have to worry about it for undergrad and now it's all piling on top of me.  Advice?  Suggestions?

This is my last week at work and I just HAVE TO pull some sort of genious prank on one of my coworkers.  He is always pulling pranks or jokes on me so it's my turn to get even with him.  Ideas anyone????

It has to be pretty big to get back at him for all of his little schemes.  I also have the support of all my coworkers so I can get all the help I need.  Just a little background..... we work at an upscale jewelry store so it's not an office setting.  If it were I was going to have him 'arrested' by a city police officer I know, but I figured that could affect his reputation so I nixed that.

Have any questions please ask because I want this to be perfect!!!

Incoming 1Ls / What to really look for?

If my school doesn't have requirements for a laptop what all should I be looking for?  I don't want to spend an arm and a leg, but also want to make sure I find something that will work well for me in these 3 yrs.  What do I need in terms of:

Operating System

Anything else I should look for?

I know I am, but probably not for long.  I've contacted movers and they're all estimating 10-14 days to move my stuff from here in Atlanta to Los Angeles.  With classes starting on the 18th I would have to move next week and that's only if I can book movers for then. 

There's my dilemna and here's my question: Do you think they'll start reviewing the waitlisted applications this week and have responses to us quickly?  I would prefer to know by Thursday so I can book a mover by Friday and be done with it.  Do you think that's a possibility???  I imagine they have received the letters they mailed out to see who's still interested.

I was just wondering if anyone received a letter from Southwestern this week.  If I'm not mistaken there was a deposit due this past week and they were going to send out a letter to ask those who are currently on the waitlist whether they were still interested in remaining on the list.  Anyone receive this letter?

I am waitlisted at my top choice school (yeah I know - join the club.)  I found out I was waitlisted when I called the week before Memorial Day to let them know that I was going out of the country.  That's when they told me I was waitlisted and I told them I was very interested and gave them my sister's contact info since I wasn't going to be reachable.  I told them my sis had a couple of my checks that I had signed in case they needed a deposit before I returned.  I definitely made sure they knew that they were my first choice.  I called last week to check my status and learned that they had a 'no response' from the letter they had sent me about the waitlist.  They didn't think I was interested anymore and never actually put me on the waitlist.  Now I've lost a month and am trying to make up the time lost.

I live in Atlanta, but could make the trip to schedule a visit to the school.  It's a long trip and I really don't have the extra money for airfare, hotel and car rental. But if it will really boost my chances of getting into my top choice school I'll gladly do it.  Any ideas on whether this will help me?  And if so, how do you suggest I approach scheduling a visit?  Thanks in advance!!  :)

Which books have you found helpful to read before starting law school?  I received my undergraduate 6 years ago and wanted to get a couple of books to prepare me a bit better for the fall and upcoming years.
