General Board / 12" or 15" Powerbook?
« on: July 20, 2005, 03:04:19 AM »
Hey folks, I'm def. buying an apple laptop but kinda unsure of which to get 12" or 15" powerbook. Basically I think the 12" is great for portability, and small size. 15" is great because of screensize and for further down the road, it's more upgradable. I don't know if the 15" will end up being cumbersome or if it'll be just fine. So yeah, kinda torn, and ideas? Suggestions? personal preferences, anecdotes, fireside stories?

Thanks!

General Board / Active, engaged learner or gunner?
« on: May 15, 2005, 08:19:42 PM »
Hi folks, I've got a question if you don't mind: What's the difference between being an active, engaged learner and a gunner? There's so much talk about "gunner's" being bad that it seems anyone asking a question or volunteering to answer is seen in a negative light. Personally, I learn best by asking and answering questions, in fact, I believe most people learn best this way. For those of you who are now "seasoned vets" of 1L and beyond, what are your thoughts? With that being said, I do plan to ask and answer questions... not be obnoxious but if I don't understand, I'm not going to just sit there and become more confused...

Anyhow, thoughts?

General Board / Part-time work as 1L?
« on: January 23, 2005, 11:13:46 PM »
I will be a 1L come this fall. I am planning on working part-time 5-10 hours a week while in school, to pay for groceries, books, etc, while my wife brings home the bacon. Does anyone have any thoughts for types of jobs? I did the waiter thing as an undergrad.. don't really want to spend nights away from my wife..... Or experience working as a 1L?

Stories, thoughts, anecdotes appreciated.

Wait List / University at Buffalo: Waitlisted
« on: March 06, 2005, 06:42:40 PM »
Well I finally got an email over the weekend stating that I'd been put on the waitlist at UB. In some ways I'm extremely stoked. Actually, I am totally stoked! The only drawback is this: They take people off the waitlist up until classes start. I'd love to wait until the last minute and see if I get in, but if I don't get in by June-ish, I think I'll have to withdraw my application. Basically the relocation isn't a big deal but my wife finding a job might be a kicker.... though anyone from WNY knows that schools don't do too much hiring before late July . :)

Anyhow, that's the news.

Where should I go next fall? / Dinged at Hofstra
« on: February 28, 2005, 09:48:55 PM »
Yep, just got the letter in the mail, via a scanned document from my folks. No big deal really. 2 down, 5 to go.... batting .500

Where should I go next fall? / Anyone dinged at W&M yet?
« on: February 23, 2005, 02:08:01 AM »
So... anyone? Just curious. I expect to be since I'm a long, long-shot. Wondering if anyone's heard.

Where should I go next fall? / Buffalo email.....
« on: February 22, 2005, 06:41:54 PM »
Alright. So I called UB the other day to ask about my status since they don't fancy returning emails. This morning I get an email saying that a decision was just made on my file and that a letter was being sent as the email was written. Ok, cool. I should hear in the next 10 days or so. Great.

So this is my thought process. If the decision were favorable, they'd probably say so in the email. If I was being denied they would just wait for the mail to arrive. Probably wouldn't tell me waitlisted via email either.

Any thoughts?

thx

Acceptances / Regent U.
« on: January 13, 2005, 09:00:20 PM »
Just received my first acceptance letter from Regent University. It's a safety school and I don't plan on attending, but it's still nice to find out that someone wants you. :)
