Sorry for the random post, but I thought someone might be able to help...  I'm living in Atlanta for the summer and I've narrowed the apartment hunt down to Post Lindbergh or Post Collier Hills.  I'm not from there and will not be able to make it down to check out the apartments before signing a lease.  Is anyone familiar with either of these properties?  If so, any advice would be so much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Current Law Students / Job Search
« on: February 17, 2006, 04:05:35 PM »
I realize there is a seperate employment board, but it doesn't appear to be as heavily frequented. 

Does anyone know of any internet sites that have listings for legal internships?  I realize it is a little late in the game, but I've yet to find something and would really like to be in Atlanta.  I've applied to all of the firms in NALP, but nothing has come of it... does anyone know of a site that has job postings?

Thanks so much.

Current Law Students / Note taking software
« on: July 18, 2005, 10:50:01 AM »
Ok, I'm getting ready to begin law school in the fall.  I've been looking at these note taking programs, but they seem to have mixed reviews.  I've read through all the previous posts, but was hoping for a general consensus.  To me, it looks that flashlaw might be my best option.  But, I was hoping a poll might shed some light!  Thanks:)

Current Law Students / Law school dress atire
« on: July 06, 2005, 02:24:52 PM »
Ok, ok, I know this is sort of a ridiculous question, but I'm wondering what the typical dress is for a day at school.  I'm getting ready to do a little school shopping (yes, I do realize I sound like I'm in middle school, but I need a few new clothes), and am wondering what people wear to class.  Is it like undergrad where people just throw on ratty jeans and a t-shirt, or do people look a little more presentable (kackis, slacks, polos, button downs, etc)?  Will there be days that we are expected to dress up? 

Also, I'd like to buy a couple suits.  How often will we need business suits?  Would 2-3 be enough for school, or will we be wearing suits fairly often?? 

Thanks in advance!

Current Law Students / Undergrad needing advice, ok to take lsat in Dec.?
« on: October 03, 2004, 09:57:10 PM »
Hello everyone.  I'm a regular poster on the Pre-law board, but thought the experienced students might be able to help with this:)  I am a senior at KU with a 3.87 gpa and psych and soc major.  I had been practicing with lsats around 170 and 171 for the past month.  However, I screwed up on Sat.  It really, really sucks.  My top schools are UT, Georgetown, Duke, and Virginia.  With the lsat score I would receive, there is no way I could make it to one of those schools.  So, I am thinking of canceling and retaking in Dec.  My score will not be available until Jan. 4th.  I can have all of my apps ready besides that.

However, I am worried that applying that late will really hurt me.  I have heard that some schools might have as much as 75% of their class chosen by then.  I was wondering if anyone had any insight on this.  Any advice would really, really help.  I am so worried that I won't be able to get into those schools applying so late.  I will be focusing on the lsat for the next 2 months and hope to be able to push my average up to the mid 170s, but everyone seems to score a little lower on the real thing. 

Please help:)  And thanks in advance.

Incoming 1Ls / Question about purchasing a Dell Latitude D610
« on: July 06, 2005, 10:18:26 AM »
After much consideration, I am purchasing a latitude d610.  Now that I'm attempting to order I'm faced with a few more options I don't understand.  I've tried to find the answers on Dell's site and online, but can't sort through all of the crap google returns.  I'm trying to decide on my processor, screen, and memory... 
What's the difference between an XGA and SXGA+ screen? 
And, I'm not sure if there would be a difference between a 750 (1.86ghz) and 760 (2ghz) processor?
I could get one of these:
-IntelŪ PentiumŪ M Processor 750 (1.86GHz) 14.1 SXGA+, RADEON X300 [add $48 or $1/month1]
-IntelŪ PentiumŪ M Processor 760 (2.00GHz) 14.1 XGA, Intel GMA 900 [add $32 or $1/month1]
-IntelŪ PentiumŪ M Processor 760 (2.00GHz) 14.1 XGA, RADEON X300 [add $80 or $2/month1]
 
Finally, what's the difference between 1 DIMM and 2 DIMM?

I realize this might be a pain to answer, but if anyone has any insight please let me know!

Thanks!

Incoming 1Ls / How often does Dell change their deals?
« on: June 26, 2005, 11:54:07 AM »
Dell has had the same deal on the latitude laptops for what seems like weeks.  Does anyone know how often they change?  I'm not sure if they change every x amount of weeks, but if anyone has noticed please let me know. 

Also, I remember reading a post in which someone mentioned that Dell offers great deals in the month of July... can anyone verify this?  I'm wondering if I should wait a few weeks to purchase my laptop.

Anyone else heading to Duke?  I've been trying to keep my eye out, but haven't seen anyone else?  Just wanted to say hello:)  Doesn't seem like the student web board is very active...
