No, his advice is think about what you really want to do before you go ahead and follow the party line.


You're missing my point.  He has admitted that most law students have goals that are different from his goals.  The reason why he does things the way he does is because his actions are geared towards his specific goals.  However, he is passing off his "specialized" advice relevant to him and others similarly situated as "generally applicable" advice relevant to most students.  You don't see a problem with that?  And just to clarify, I'm referring to the advice he was giving regarding the topic of this thread, not the advice you're referring to above.



I agree.  "Specialized" advice should be marked as such, and no one should start giving us advice if they regard the rest of us as followers.  Otherwise, we will do as they say and eventually they will be a part of the "sea," too.  Vicious cycle.

But, I must say, we cannot equate 'different' and 'better' because they are simply different;)

 And, while I see your point about not coming across as a self-absorbed penis by openly offending your classmates, I have to ask, what is the 'difference' between thinking it and saying it?  I think most of us can read between the lines well enough.  Not that having a high opinion of yourself is bad, but neither is telling people about it.  That just makes you a really bad poker player.

I can see that my "idiotic," almost computer-illiterate question has created some very serious and frightening comments.

hehe, my bad.

I was just looking for some assistance from the experts.  Thanks for the advice, but the hostility is a bit unnecessary fellas, really.

No, I do not write programs, nor am I an idiot possessed by television ads (actually, I don't even have cable.)  I think the Mac will better for an illiterate comme moi, considering the Dell Inspiron that I have now sucks my asz. 

Maybe you're right jeffislouie, and I have been a bit abusive to it, but nonetheless, the demos I got from the guy at BestBuy really changed my mind about the whole Mac/PC thing.  Too bad he doesn't work for commission.

I have to get a new notebook and the $1100-$1400 I will spend on a Macbook will hopefully pay off.  Hey, if not, I guess I'll be back posting about the bullsh*t Mac and the glory of PC's.

Then you can all tell me once again how big of an idiot I am, etc.  Hostility will be a little better swallowed at that time.  Maybe my screen name should be "remedial," too.  (I love puns...)   ;)

Thanks.  I did check the website and it seems that my school supports exams on either platform.  But I think I'll give 'em a call to be sure!

You were right- July it is...bummer.  I was hoping, like you, that we could get a sneak preview of profs.  I have a few I hope I get, but you know how that goes.

Guess we just have to wait. And wait.  :-\

Ok, so I have vowed to myself that I will never buy another PC (for obvious reasons)...but, I know that my LS uses IBM databases, etc.  From what I have gathered from some techie-types, I can install Parallels on a Macbook and use all IBM databases, etc. without worry. (I assume this means even if I use a Mac for a clerkship, job, etc.)

Any thoughts? 

Oh, and I REALLY, REALLY want the Macbook... aside from all the needs for a new laptop.

Thanks!

Georgia State / Re: Section Assignment

ok, so I sent an e-mail to Dr. George about the section assignments and when we're supposed to get them...  so, I'll keep you posted.

hmiller, when you spoke with the registrar, were they pretty confident (ie. sure) about the July thing?!

The reason i ask, is because I tried to change my address with the registrar and they hadn't even gotten my file yet, so it seems that they are kind-of like the last people to know... and that may be why they gave such a late time frame.

however, all full-time day classes are offered at the same time-blocks, it is just a matter of which prof/class at which block?  make sense?  so, if you are trying to make schedule plans, you can, tentatively.  unless, that is, you are looking to take evening classes mixed with day classes.  there is a new fall 2008 schedule posted on the website, so maybe that will give you a better idea...

anyway, hope that helps.

Hello all...

I just found this site.  Funny enough, I have been searching the web for pre-law crap for weeks now...paranoia.  So, I am glad I found a place to "meet" some fellow classmates.

I also went to GSU for undergrad and can't wait to be back on campus.  For those of you coming from out-of-state, WELCOME TO ATLANTA!

Yeah, I saw the mention of vacation, trust, I will be sitting by the beach sometime before school starts!

Anyone heard anything about when we find out our section/class schedule?!?
