Transferring / Re: Spring Transfer?
« on: August 16, 2007, 07:55:06 AM »
I transfered in the Spring. I think many schools will permit a Spring transfer to replace the few students they lose from the Fall class. It seems like my school (OU) let in about 3-4 transfer students that Spring.

Transferring / Re: QUICK decision = Good or Bad?

My decision went quick and I got in. Your stats look fine, don't worry about it! But my new school actually called me when the decision was made last Thursday. I didn't get the letter until this week. I had spoken with the admissions coordinator in October and asked her if she could give me a call. She's a sweetheart!

Good luck and stop glaring at the poor mailbox! After class go see a movie or something to get your mind off of everything. I know, good advise - impossible to follow! Good luck...

That's too funny. I have to say that I've been to Bristow and there really isn't much else to do in those parts!  ;D

An idle mind is the Devil's playground!

I'm not a lawyer or anything but I believe that would be illegal. Something about fraud and/or theft maybe???  ???

Not to mention that even under a one time use credit card (whatever that is) you would still have to provide personal information that could eventually be tracked back to you. You would eventually be held accountable and your record marked.

I'm not trying to take the pulpit here but are these really the ethics you plan on practicing law with? If you have the money then spring for the reference material. If not then suck it up and study the hard way with the free material you can find online and at the PTO website. You can buy a d**mn good outline from Paul [N] on e-bay for ~$30. Spend the money - save your reputation! It's just not worth it.

I did developmental work for small businesses. Mainly taking their ideas and turning them into prototypes so they could do the marketing and manufacturing. I did a lot of embedded uC work.

I just wanted to say that I went all out and spent the $1,600 plus for barbri and do not regret it a bit. The videos are awesome and have really helped put the whole system in perspective. Now I need to get off my rear and register with the PTO for the test. Good luck everyone!

Haha, I'll defer to you - I'm a computer engineer, but I only have 5 years experience ;)

Unless you count life, then I've got 24 :)

Sorry, I didn't mean to come off like an arrogant ass. >:( I was just trying to make a point that the young men/women working at Circuit City might not know everything.

I do want to add one disclaimer. There may be some configuration of docking station out there that could affect the speed and efficiency of your laptop. I just have never seen or worked with them. That's probably becuase any docking station that reduced the operation of your laptop wouldn't enjoy much commercial success.

Brewskies: I'm not trying to be mean to the guy at Circuit City but he's wrong. Trust me, the docking station has no effect on the performance of the actual laptop. I'm a computer engineer with 20 years experience. They probably give those kids that come into Circuit City some training, but I doubt it's really that in depth.

I'm like you, just MS Word, Internet and generic use of my system. When you use the docking station it would have all the additions attached to it, not your laptop. The only connection to your laptop is the power cord and a USB cable to the dicking station. The Kensington station allows you to use the monitor from your laptop so there's no need to buy a seperate one. The printer, keyboard and mouse all attach to the docking station. If you already have a second monitor you can use it to have a dual monitor system. I did that and it's pretty cool.

Delta is right, it doesn't affect the performance of your laptop at all.

However, there is another option where you wouldn't need to buy another monitor. I use a Kensington docking station and I love it. Makes packing up and leaving simple and yet gives me the desktop feel when I'm at home. K33239 is the model number.

You register about two months before you want to take the test. If you haven't started studying yet then don't even try it. I've spoken with several patent attorneys and they all agreed that the patent bar makes the state bar seem simple. The exams are given anytime.
