the reason i want to live in the dorms are just that it'll be convienant, no landlords, no bills to pay or checks to write throughout the month and no roommates to get used to.  no traffic on the way to school and i don't have to clean my own bathroom.  so i can just be more lazy then normal.

I received the same scholarship, I would assume that they have extra money also.  I'm hoping for a decent amount in grants due to the fact that I am now considered independant of my parents income.  I called the financial aid office and they said to expect to receieve an award package sometime in June.  So we'll have to wait and see what they say there.

I live in northeast philly so it's about 45 minutes for me also without traffic probably closer to 70 minutes with traffic.  i would rather have the 2 hours a day to do work, get away from my home so i can focus more and save the gas and wear and tear on my car.  40 miles each way is tough.  400miles a week on my car, aside from the 200 miles i generally will put on it going back and forth, that's 600 miles a week and 3 tanks of gas.  so i'm looking at 85-100 dollars a week in gas and that's kinda steep.  I would rather borrow the money for dorms.  Plus i really need to focus and at home i screw around too much.  where did you do you're undergrad, is this your graduation year or you returning to school.

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.
