Incoming 1Ls / Inspiron 6000 Question?
« on: June 21, 2005, 11:07:31 AM »
Im seriously considering getting this computer, but i have reservations about the screen.  The other computer im looking at is an HP which has a brightview glossy screen which looks spectacular.  Can anyone tell me if the screen is up to par with other comparable computers.  Thanks very much.

Just thought I'd start a thread for all the future Villanova One Ls.

I saw this old link from last year, and there is some useful info on housing.,2132.120.html

Im getting stoked to move up to Philly.  Anyone else moving from the DC area?

Incoming 1Ls / Car situation: Keep or lease
« on: June 09, 2005, 10:37:53 AM »
Well here's the problem.  I have a car with a little over 100,000 miles on it, and its going to need about 1,500 dollars of repairs over the next few months to keep it in good running condition.  Not to mention any repairs that it may incur during the three years of law school.  My current car payment is about 250.  Im wondering if I should trade in my car and lease a new one.  I know i can lease a decent car for about the same monthly payment as I am paying now.  THere is much less risk ascosciated with leasing a new car, cause i pretty much know that any major repairs will be covered under the warranty.  So over the three years, it may be cheaper for me to lease a new car, then keep dumping money into the one I have now.  The one catch is my current car payments will be done after my second year, but if I lease i will still have to make payments into my third year.  What do you guys think, is this a bad idea?  Pros and cons?

Random question, but does anyone know when the new laptop models will be coming out?  I just know the second I buy one, a new model will come out a week later.

Incoming 1Ls / Best outlines and E&Es??
« on: May 20, 2005, 10:41:49 AM »
Im sure this has been talked about before, but could any 1 L's shed some light on the best supplemental material to buy? I.E. Which commercial outlines are helpful, and E&E's.  I'd really appreciate it, thanks very much.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / American

There is going to be movement from the American waiting list very soon.  Currently, they have no spots available for the full-time program only the part-time.

Choosing the Right Law School / Scholarship $$$$
« on: April 19, 2005, 01:01:15 PM »
If you accept money from a school that you put down a deposit at, is it any more binding that just putting down a regular deposit?  Just curious.

Choosing the Right Law School / Villanova over Pitt??
« on: April 13, 2005, 02:57:18 PM »
Am I crazy to take Villanova over Pitt because I would rather live in Philly???   They are both giving me money so there is no real price difference.

Pitt's employment numbers and salary are much higher, but I think that could be the result of a more crowded legal market(Penn, Temple)in Philly.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated guys.
