I agree that it's not time to hit panic mode.  When I entered college, the idea of writing a 60 page thesis to graduate just about made my head explode.  By the time I was ready to write it, it took very little effort at all.  As long as you pay attention in class, keep up with the reading, and DON'T GET BURIED UNDER YOUR BOOKS ALL SEMESTER and get out and keep your stress level in a reasonable range, you'll be prepared for these exams come December.

Good deal.  I actually wrote a paper this past semester on how playing poker prepares you for other ventures in life.  Not many people bought into the thesis, but I'm stickin' by my guns damnit.

If you like Hold'em, the daily tournaments can be a good deal.  Tropicana has cheap ones on Mondays and Wednesdays.  I totally jumped on the bandwagon after ESPN showed the WSOP last summer.  Got a set of quality chips for Christmas and before ya know it there was a game goin' at least 3 nights a week at my house.  We'll have to get one started at school.

Ending July 30 here...vegetate for a couple of weeks...def. gonna blow a wad of cash in AC

What's your game of choice?  The rake on low-limit poker makes it tough to make any money at that, and I'm just too chicken-*&^% to step up to a higher-limit game...Blackjack and Pai Gow Poker are always fun.

Not takin' much time off, are ya Brooke?  I'm thinkin' Aug 6 will be my last work day.  That'll give me a full week plus to unwind, settle in wherever I end up living, probably hit up Atlantic City to blow my not-so-hard-earned money, etc.  I basically plan on vegetating for 2 full weeks before the onslaught of law school.

I'm sure you all may be familiar with Aaron Karo, who until recently wrote the Ruminations column that is featured on CollegeHumor.com.  Check out this article from last summer regarding work...http://www.aaronkaro.com/16.htm

I thought about sending my resume to some of the small law firms around here but then decided that I'm going to have more time doing legal work over the next 30 years that I don't really feel like taking more on now.

Brooke, when do you plan on telling your boss about LS?  And how long have you worked there?

Best wishes living with your family Brooke.  My family has offerred to let me do the same, and I realize it would be a good financial decision, but after 4 years living away from home including 5 months on my own in London, spending the summers at home sucks enough.  I can't do it for longer, even for just the first year.

I also hear ya on the POS job.  Mine isn't like a career job, just the customer service/data entry thing I did last summer and am back with the same company (computer company in King of Prussia) right now.  I basically spend all day on this message board, AIM, playing Yahoo games, etc.  Not that getting paid for that stuff isn't nice, but sometimes I feel truly worthless sitting here.

As far as laptops go, I do have a lot of brand loyalty to Dell, and will probably go with a laptop from them.  Need to find out exactly what specs 'nova requires though.

If anyone on the board here lives in the Philadelphia area and wants to get together for drinks sometime, I'm always game.

What happened to everyone else who was on this thread?  lschool2004, brooke7733, stillwaiting...any of you still out there?

I think I'm gonna do the apartment hunt next Friday.  So far it looks like Rosemont Plaza, Radwyn, Mermont, and Mermont Plaza are gonna be the places I look.  Possibly also 101 Mill Creek Apartments in Ardmore since I have friends who live there.  Also gotta gear up for a lovely conversation with financial aid...

Does anyone know what the parking situation is for law students at 'nova?

And we'll get to pledge again, as 1Ls...

Very little sleep, memorizing seemingly endless reams of material, constantly being challenged, and resorting to binge drinking for comfort...yeah, sounds about right.
