The only thing, at least with half.com, is that you have to pay to ship your books before you receive any money.  At least for me, I'm so low on money at the end of the semester that I can't even part with the $100 or so to ship all the books.

I suppose you could wait until the beginning of next semester though.

What shipping method do you use??  I use media mail, and usually spend only about $3 per book. The most I think I've ever spent was about $4 for an especially large case book.  You get paid shipping too, so while you do pay out of pocket, you'll get almost all of it back when you get your money from half.com.

I've been using half.com to sell for the first time this semester too and I always seem to pay a couple dollars more on the shipping. They'll refund you like $3 for media mail but my total seems to be a little over $5 with  paying for an envelope to ship it in. I just sent out my first priority mail for a large textbook and while the refund is like $5, it cost over $8 (and this is with a free box). You just have to figure it into your price. I've been happy with the site so far though and you definitely get back more than from the bookstore which I did all undergrad.

I don't know what I clicked, but my pointer became stuck momentarily and now every time I add a new page it defaults to a grid background. I really want to get rid of the grid background and go back tot he default notebook style. Can anyone help me undo this?

Format---> Rule Lines ---> choose

Thanks!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Cornell Law Class of 2010 (or 2011)!!!

Hi Everybody,

Rumor has it that there is no air conditioning in Hughes Hall and that microwaves and refridgerators are not allowed.  Does anybody know about this?

Thanks!

As far as I know, the first part is correct. I'm concerned about it too, but I'm hoping the cold weather comes through and makes it not necessary along with breeze from open windows. How about some feedback from current students? Is it ever, like hot? Will A/C be missed, especially late Aug to Sept and April/May? 
Don't know about the 2nd point but I think there are shared kitchens for each cluster.

Any tech junkies with thoughts on the HP Pavilion tx1000z or HP Compaq tc4400 tablets?

I actually read (well skimmed) through this whole thread. I'm using a Gateway 450 that I bought in early 2003 (although I've had to send it back to have the motherboard replaced twice) so based on that history and the warranty being expired, it seems a good idea to get a new one that's covered for law school. I plan to still use the gateway as a functional desktop in my room though and will want a much lighter weight and a much longer battery size to take to and from class and use for notes, and class related work.
The comments on the the tablets, especially the thinkpad, has gotten me interested in its added durability and functionality, although I'll have to do more research.

The thing is, I can get a Compaq at a 15% discount, but the few comments I've seen in this thread have been negative. Any more details on this?

So, is the consensus to get a dining plan (especially if you live at Hughes)?

Law School Admissions / Re: GW T-shirts
« on: April 29, 2007, 09:36:43 PM »
Got mine. On one hand its a pretty bad shirt, its all blue with a tiny "GW LAW" in yellow Coca-Cola like script in the corner. Kind of lame, was expecting the official logo in the middle or something. Then again, the advantage is, I'm not going there so I can still wear it and from a distance you'd have no idea what it says.

good luck. did you put down deposits at both schools, or is this thread no longer relevant?

You do realize you bumped a 2 year old thread, right?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Cornell or Vanderbilt?

 i see vandy as a school that's gaining recognition while cornell can only go remain stagnant or go down, particularly if people start actually choosing vandy over cornell. 

This statement is puzzling. How can Cornell "only go down?" As far as I can tell, once a t14 school, you're pretty much grandfathered into that spot, barring some sort of complete school scandal/disaster. Cornell remaining "stagnant" isn't exactly a negative. It can't really go up any farther, unless you mean up to the Harvard level or thereabouts which you can say the same for every school besides about 6.
Similarly I don't see how Vanderbilt can expect to gain any further, since it's just as improbable that a school would break into the t14, as a school currently there to drop off, and so Vandy being in that 15-20 place range, is the one that has really no place to go.

Not meant as a flame, just don't understand the suggestion that somehow Vanderbilt is on its way to passing Cornell in ranking/prestige.
