David,

Since you are a CPA and will do taxes for food (lol), does this also mean that you are a good person to talk to about 'money matters'?  There are a few things that I have been dying to learn more about (damn it, Jim, I'm a B.A., not a mathematician!).  I really have no idea what CPA's do other than help businesses and individuals keep their ledgers in order.  CPA's make me think of a tall, long-faced, diginifiedly bald man with spectacles perched at the tip of his nose, sitting in front of a high table on a tall stool, with his hands stained with ink from pouring over gigantic ledger books all day. 

Right.

What majors did you all have in undergrad?

PNC Bank is a great bank in Pittsburgh.  They are forgiving on mistakes, have great customer service, and do not go out of their way to screw you. 

AVOID National City.  You will find people that have not had bad experiences with them, but these people are few and far between.  National City will try anything and everything to squeeze money out of you, including processing withdrawals before deposits, so your account will get overdrawn and fined.  THEY BLOW GOATS!

Did anyone receive their registration and course materials yet?

How many of yinz  ;) have secured ALL of their financial aid (specifically, I am asking about moneys beyond the fedral Pell and Stafford loans)?

Oh, and how late will you be in town on Wednesday?

How far along are you all on your financial aid aquisition?  I received a huge envelope from AES (?) for my Stafford and Pell, but I've never dealt with financial aid before and have not yet determined if AES was sending me this material at the behest of Duquesne or independently.

Arf!

I don't know if I plan to stay in the Burgh.  I have been here for several years now, and on one hand, I know many of the ins-and-outs of living here.  On the other hand, I would LOVE to live and work in a much more progressive (read: liberal) state or country.  Warmer weather would be a major bonus, too. 

My experience here in the States is a little limited; I only really know about living in PA, in Florida, and in New England.  Florida would be a great place if it wasn't for the complete lack of intelligent culture.  New England kicks the llama's ass, but the weather sucks. PA has Pittsburgh on one side and Philly on the other, but Mississippi in between. (I hope that this isn't lost on my international friend ;) )

I know that organizations vary in the level that they allow 1L's to participate.  I think that some of this info is in the prospectus that was mailed to us.

The beautiful thing is: Macs can emulate PCs.  ROCK!  And they look cool too.  Not that I would show off or anything. Really.

Yes, let's meet up during orientation.  From what I understand, the incoming full-time class will be divided into two sections, A and B.  These sections will determine the order in which we take our mandatory first year classes.

LOL.... Joe Campion told me to read "To Kill A Mockingbird" and "Gideon's Trumpet."

Duquesne is not 'with' it as far as a student-oriented PC store is concerned.  I REALLY recommend the new Mac laptops; you can get a Duquesne-specific discount through the www.apple.com website and browsing their "Education Store."

I have been a PC geek since I was five, but I am totally sold on the new Powerbook and iBook laptops.  They are practically bulletproof, and integrate perfectly into a PC network (wireless networking is wireless networking).  You can use MS Word on a Mac and share those same files with PC users.

Sorry, I love my Mac. I hardly ever use my PC anymore! The prices are KILLER considering the value of the product you get (Killer being a good thing ;) ).
