I don't necessarily disagree with anything that's been said, but I'd like to point out that New York Law School is an upwardly mobile Tier 3 school. Keep track of it, it will be Tier 2 pretty soon.

I have both. They serve different functions. My PDA keeps my schedule, with alarms for everything, repeated reminders, etc. and my phone book--as well as dictionaries, books, games, note pads. And it's little, and easy to consult, without having to boot it up every time I want to check something. (ie. Westlaw password..) I also read books on the subway--my Palm is a lot easier to juggle than a book, and I've got about 30 books loaded on it.
I wouldn't give up my Palm, my laptop, OR cellphone.

Attention when he DOESN'T pester, is what I meant!

Remember that the ABA rules say you can't work more than 20 hrs/wk if you are going to school full time.

We have a 1 1/2 year old Scottish Terrier. Terriers are REALLY strong minded--but worth it all, without a doubt. Get some help with training, especially learn about crates! Our puppy loves his crate (it's like a den) and we all get some quiet time when he's there. And remember,  you're in charge. If you ignore him consistently when he bugs you, and give him lots of love when he does pester, he'll quickly get the idea and let you study. You've got a good block of time between now and the Fall, and terriers learn quickly, once they know you're serious. AND be consistent.
Good luck. I'm sure you'll be very happy to have a friendly non-judgemental being to be happy to see you every time you walk in the door! I know our puppy sure helps me stay sane!
