My underwear drawer is divided into the wear-on-a-date section and the wear-to-the-gym section. 'Nough said.
Of course! (I'm just picturing the combination of sports bra and lacy thong...) And I like my nice stuff to match.
Speaking of which: Victoria's Secret is having its semi-annual sale. Great deals if you're willing to dig through the bins and deal with women elbowing you out of the way.

There's a difference between hook-ups and dating. The former might be ill-advised in any small community, but to say, "You shouldn't date a fellow student" seems silly. You can pretty much guarantee that as soon as you tell yourself it's not convenient for you to have a relationship, you'll meet someone. You can't (and shouldn't) micromanage life that way.

I, too, grew up in the South (but in Atlanta, and I went to a progressive school, so it doesn't really count). The hospitality is great, and it's not just a cliche. And I think you're right about the UGA Law student body. Plus, Athens is a pretty liberal town.

Hey now, give yourself some credit. And glad to hear you're not a neo-con. (Help, I'm being overrun by emoticons!)

As for me: single, and hoping to meet some cute, smart, not-ultra-conservative guys at UGA.
MAN.. what a change from D.C..
Glad you enjoyed Athens. It's a cool little town, and Atlanta is very easily accessible if you want a bigger city. You'll also be amazed how much cheaper Atlanta is than DC (certainly not as cheap as Athens, but as a medium-sized city cost of living is pretty low). I lived in New York for two years after college, and after getting used to Atlanta prices again, I'm always shocked when I visit friends back in NYC.
And I wouldn't worry too much about the Bible belt. Athens is pretty liberal as small Southern towns go, and Atlanta is populated with a bunch of transplanted Northerners and other non-Bible-belt types. You still get somewhat of a fratty scene in Athens, but I've also heard you can easily find alternative options.
As for GT, my baby brother goes there (and is doing phenomenally well in his mechanical engineering degree). He has a very attractive girlfriend there, but they were together before they started college, so it doesn't really count. However, he'll very likely graduate from college with a high-paying job and very little debt, which is much more than I can say of my New England liberal arts college experience...

Actually, the ABA does offer an optional add-on for major illness/injury, which I think covers up to $200,000 or so in major medical expenses.
And you're right: the pill is generally inexpensive, even w/o a copay, but on a more general level I like the comfort of having a decent health insurance plan should anything unexpected happen.

So I've been checking out the student health insurance plan offered by my law school versus the one offered by the ABA. I noticed that the one offered by my school does NOT offer copays for birth control pills. So annoying. Luckily, the ABA one does offer copays for the pill.
Just a notice for the women out there who might be interested in such coverage to read the fine print carefully before choosing a plan.
