« on: July 21, 2005, 04:24:47 PM »
If we all post schedules, maybe we can figure out who's in which section...esp. when it comes to the small ones for legal writing...

Here is my schedule:  SECTION A1

Contracts - Prof. Harry Flechtner (Section 1020)
Legal Process - Prof. NATHENSON (Section 1020) 
**EDIT** The peoplesoft data is wrong... instead of Prof. Brake, I have Prof. Nathenson for Legal Process**
Torts - Prof. Lawerence Frolik (Section 1030)
Crim. Law - Prof. John Burkoff (Section 1015)
Legal Writing - Prof. James Flannery (Section 1035)

Pittsburgh / Pitt approved a tuition hike on Friday.
« on: July 17, 2005, 12:36:45 AM »
Tuition increase of 6% was approved on Friday of last week.  That's about what I expected....could have been worse.

See you all in the fall!

Hi future Duquesne Students!  I found an apartment with one of my (soon to be former) co-workers.  She has a 3 BR 1 B apartment in Squirrel Hill (right off of shady ave...by bus stops).  I saw it on Saturday, and it's great!  Hardwood floors, lots of storage, off-street parking (driveway and 1-car garage), and a huge basement with w&d hook-ups.  (I'll be bringing the w&d).  Between the 2 of us, it will be fully furnished, minus the 3rd bedroom.  It's in the top floor of an old tudor house, so there won't be foot traffic noise from above.  She won't be around too much, because she's a busy pharmaceutical rep, and I'll be a 1L, 'nuff said.  So, it will be a quiet environment.  The rent will be $400 plus utilities...and the cable (wireless) internet will be paid for by my former company.

Send me a message if you're interested.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / I just bought a SONY Vaio S150
« on: April 28, 2005, 03:33:57 PM »
I like it.  Got a good deal on a refurbished one at a Sony outlet.  3-yr protection plan was only 99.99.  It's 4 pounds and the display is great.

General Off-Topic Board / What is your favorite commercial?
« on: April 04, 2005, 05:45:54 PM »
There are so few good ones. 

Here are a few of mine.

1. The Sonic commercial where the guy thinks that the beginning of the word is not silent....w-rench...
2. The FedEx commercial where the guy goes, "you are always wrong." Fringe benefits, not french, Steely dan not one guy...

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Hitting the gym in law school...
« on: March 27, 2005, 12:36:23 PM »
I currently go to the gym 3-4 times per week, two of which I teach Spinning classes.  I'm thinking of continuing to teach, but changing from 6:30 pm to 6:00 am classes.  Then, maybe working out the other times in the morning as well.  I think being physically active is going to be so important to my sanity; taking out the stress of LS on the treadmill or spinner will feel great.

What are everyone's plans for continuing to stay/beginning to be physically fit while in LS?

Acceptances / It's PITT for me...I've made my decision!
« on: March 17, 2005, 05:17:20 PM »
For anyone else who's decided to go to Pitt...Give me a holla!  We're going to be classmates! :D

Denials / GW Ding...F them.
« on: March 12, 2005, 05:01:59 PM »
Yeah, I'm jealous of others who got in.  Thought I had a fairly good chance...at least to be waitlisted, but no go.

I think I'm going to go to Pitt now, and come out with about 1/2 of the debt I would have if GW was in my future. 

Things have a way of working themselves out.

Wait List / GW..I shouldn't have called...
« on: March 04, 2005, 04:44:36 PM »
I called the admissions office today around 3:30, and they said a decision was made on 3/2, and it has been mailed.  Being that GW emails acceptances, it seems as if my fate is sealed...I consider waitlist a ding.  :(
