Would anyone seriously say "until the heat is off"?  Sounds like a line from a bad Nick Nolte movie.

We bought a house in Fayetteville instead of renting.  It is such a hot market right now there that it makes a lot of sense for us.  The house we bought sold for 97,000 2 years ago and we're buying it for 129.  That's like 30% in two years.  And even if we don't make money on it it's better than throwing away money renting.

yeh, miami is a crappy school. Whatever  ::)

I think you would enjoy Holland you commie pinko nutjob! LOL J/K

So u don't think I should bother w/Microsoft One Note?  I really like it because of its recording feature.

We use Wordperfect at the office to do merge documents with Time Matters and TIme Slips which a lot of legal offices use - the experience working with it in school will be positive for the "real world".  ALso, there is a Legal Toolbar on wordperfect which sets up an outline and other features which I have yet to use. 


I like onenote, but it is your choice.  I read on this thread someone really like goBinder, but I hated it.  You should just play around with them and see what you like.

Job Search / Re: Stupid Question about summer employment

I don't know anything about you, obviously, or what school you are going to attend, but for budget purposes, I would be VERY conservative in estimating that you will get a high-paying summer associate position after 1L.  I know lots of people working, but many are 100% volunteer (even one guy at a small firm not getting paid), or working as an RA for $10/hr, a couple Public Interest jobs making about that, and only a few making $2k/week at a firm.

I don't know a LOT about the loan thing, but for at least the federal loans, I applied for all I could, then I get discretion much closer to the time of need to accept the loan, decline the loan, or accept a lesser amount.


Oh I absolutely agree with you.  I was just curious because it would be nice to have some money in the bank when next school year comes around.  I don't think it will affect how much money I borrow for 2l but it along with a job after 2l might mean I don't have  to borrow anything for 3l.  Just trying to look at all the angles as they say.  Thanksa for the input, I really appreciate it.
