U of the Pacific - McGeorge / FSU
« on: November 14, 2005, 03:50:48 PM »
Thomas Main is visiting FSU (from your university) this semester.  I'm looking for a way to contact students who may have taken his Civ. Pro. class before (looking or outlines  :))  Is there a local student board or other means of contact with McGeorge 2Ls/3ls?

Thanks for your help. 

Main is, by the way, the best of my first year professors by far.

Florida State / On the irrelevance of the post orientation post
« on: August 19, 2005, 06:25:46 PM »
This FSU board has served us well for the past months.  In addition to hosting important discussions (such as the "bill to kill out-of-state students) and providing invaluable information, it has proved to be instrumental in providing opportunities to meet fellow students in person and to make new friends.

However, this very success may be the downfall of the FSU specific board as most of us who post here now see and talk to each other daily.  What more do we have to say?  What issues are left to discuss?   

I hope this is not true, yet the evidence speaks for itself as few have posted on this board since many of us met on Monday of this week.  Have you?  How often?

This introspective look at the inner workings of the FSU LSD board provided to you free of charge by your good friend Shardik.

Florida State / Roe vs. Wade is our case?!?
« on: August 13, 2005, 02:10:25 PM »
An interesting choice to say the least.  I'm not surprised that we are going to study the case, just that it was chosen for orientation.  I'm actually happy about it as it  shows that the school is not afraid to just "jump right in" and challenge both us and our preconceptions. 

What do you guys think?  Or am I the only one who thought we would get a slightly  more mundane case.

Florida State / Getting ready!
« on: July 29, 2005, 07:11:59 PM »
I spent the day in Tally today taking care of  business and setting up my new place in Jefferson Arms.  I got my new FSYou Card (bad picture as always).  I turned in all my medical records, updated my address with the LS and spent half an hour trying to get my laptop to work on their  network (more difficult than I would have thought esp. since I'm pretty good with that stuff.

My laptop gets a fairly good wireless signal over in Jeff. Arms, about three bars.  I'm not sure if I am going to be able to use it all the time or if I am going to pay for better, and more reliable service from Comcast. 

I'm not too pleased with the book store as they made me check my brand new laptop at the door with some undergrad who was nearly asleep!  But I guess I can understand their desire to lessen thievery. 

Anyways, spending the day there has got me excited about starting school.  I'm going back tomorrow to paint, and hang some curtains.  Hope to see some of you around!  8)

Florida State / Just a few questions
« on: July 22, 2005, 01:20:35 AM »
Does anyone know when we will receive our class schedules and section assignments?

How many total sections are there?

Where can I pick up a couple of tickets to the FSU v. Miami opener? (at student prices)

Anybody play tennis?

If you are going to live in one of the Phoenix properties are you going to pay for a FSU parking decal?

So I was wondering whatever happened to our favorite old search engines?  Do they still exist?  And why do we not seem to remember anything pre-google?

So here it is, a shout-out to the lost search engines of old.

I miss you infoseek.com
Fare well Magellan (www.mckinley.com)
So long Excite.com
Where are you now WebCrawler?
Snap!  You will be missed!
Infind.com (Inference Find) …well you were never that good anyway
Yahoo, ummm are you still around?
www.go.com you were simple, and easy to type!
RIP Contentville.  Altavista, you will be missed
Infospace & Dogpile, Lycos & Looksmart….thanks for all the great memories, farewell.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / TO ARMS! Florida's New Law.
« on: May 31, 2005, 02:49:04 PM »
Going to school in Florida?  Out-of-state?   If you’re like me you were told that you would qualify for In-State-tuition for your second and third year.  YOU WILL NOT GET IT.  There is a new bill scheduled to become law in July.  Look here at the Florida Senate (bill 2264)   scroll down to the bill text and view the newest bill.

  http://www.flsenate.gov/session/index.cfm?BI_Mode=ViewBillInfo&Mode=Bills&SubMenu=1&Year=2005&billnum=2264

The new law will prohibit you from earning in-state tuition unless you live and work full time in FL for 12 months.  Attending school during that period disqualifies you.  Other states have had this but it is new in Florida.

I sold my home in Alabama, Quit my job making good money as an educator in Georgia, gave up my seat at every other school that I was accepted, bought an apartment in Tallahassee…and all b/c I was promised in-state fees for the second and third years.  I cannot get my job back, I cannot get my home back, I cannot go to LS anywhere else and I cannot attend FSU at these prices! 

FSU in-state = $7,500.00
FSU out-state = $27,500.00

If this effects you then we need to help each other.  Call, write letters, anything you can do to express the hardship imposed by this new law.

I'm in at FSU but out-of-state is 27.5k/year.  Thats way more than what i would pay at say Ole Miss (13k/yr)

Is there a way to gain In-State tuition for the first year?

Thanks!

I just spent four years working toward my education degree (instrumental music)so to make a little money before the big 1L I took a job as the band director at a high school and I am having a blast! 

The kids are great and I have never made so much money!  But more than that there is a real sense of satisfaction in actually doing what I studied for so long.

So the question is, does anybody else have a sense of loss at not following their undergraduate degree into the workplace?
