congrats, that just helps prove that it's not what school you're in but what you do there that's most important.  also the real congrats goes to you for being top 5%. you earned the fat paycheck, good job!

that's smart, you can probably get laid more in law school without a girlfriend then with one.  I know that's how it was in college and why would that change?

I work as a tech part time at a circuit city now, it's mostly spyware and viruses but we get the complicated issues at times as well.  I just think a external hard drive is good because you like erapitt said you can put everything on there.  I have over 3000 pictures going back to high school that i keep transferring from one cpu to another and i like having all of them at the same time too.  I didn't back up my school files and lost all my work from my first 3 years of undergrad.  Not that I neeeded it, but I would have liked to be able to go back and see how much I've done in 5 years of college.  THe main issue is backing up data no matter hwo you do it.

the largest flash drive on the consumer market right now is 2gbs.  you can also get a microdrive made by hitachi that hold 6 or 8gbs and do a good job, but they are expensive.  I was just saying the smallest external hard drive you can find will do the job.  i bought a case and used the hard drive from an old desktop as mine.  it's about 80gbs now.  the cases are cheap. about $20 and you can find a small hard drive on ebay very cheap.  i just seen a 10gb for 10$.  get a decent case though, and preferable one with a one touch back up button.

I just posted this on a schools board, but I think it's important.  For anyone who is starting law school, or does not have one.  Buy an external hard drive if you store outlines and notes on a laptop.  I just remember this temple law student who came into the shop i work at as a tech during undergrad extremly upset because finals were in 2 weeks and she lost all of her data.  If you lose your laptop, have it stolen or it just craps out on you, you're screwed.  So I am just suggesting people who rely on their comps to buy USB hard drives, they don't have to be real big.  10gbs will do and learn how to back up their files on about a weekly basis.. Hopefully you'll never need it, but it could be the difference between a good and a poor semester.

leaf i understand the difference between always, significantly likely to occur, non signficance, etc.  I wasn't asking for absolutes, and i think anyone who allows total strangers posting on a message board to dictate something about their lives is indeed significantly likely to be not that bright.  I was just asking for a few anedoctal stories of people through their past experiences or others they've witnessed.  That way I could possible gain some insight on to the probability of this working out and prehaps even garner some advice for making it work.  and I hope those commments about what my girlfriend looks like were not directed toward me.

I'm a 0L starting law school in the fall, im hearing mixed stories about my ability to maintain my relationship with my girlfriend i was hoping for some experience if anyone is willing to chime in.  I"m going to be living on campus about 45 minutes from where she lives.  we've been together a year and half (2 by the time LS starts) and we have a strong relationship.  has anyone been able to work through this or have a similar story.  also i am 22 years old, and she is going into her senior year of undergrad and student teaching next year so we'll both be busy i would say. thanks
