Incoming 1Ls / Re: if you had scored three points lower...

abso-freaking-loutely. Though, if I had been smart and cared enough about the LSAT when I took it, it's really the three points more that I should have worried about. Three more points would have changed everything for me. Oh well, it still worked out for the best. (well, almost, some $$ would be nice)

But three points less and I don't know where I'd be going... and everything would have been completely different.

You can definitely get one bedrooms around $1000 and two bedrooms around $1250 at the low end out in VA near the metro... or search for a townhouse and split it, if you're into that sort of thing. Alternatively, my boyfriend and I got a huge house, on 5 acres, about 10 min from metro for $1850, there are other houses like that out there, some a lot closer to metro/townhouses and the like, that are better "deals" depending on how you split them up, rent out extra rooms, etc., just something to consider if you're in a position to share a house, you can get a lot better "deal"

I'm a little confused too.
It is unusual to go out in public with the SO?

I think it's about making a special evening... we go out all the time, but it's different when we plan something rather than just go out b/c well, hell, we live together, who else would we eat dinner with? Or, when we are doing something "standard" but make it more fun... keeps things from just being "normal" all the time.

that's funny you mention that... a lot of the time our "dates" are just hanging around the house watching sports or playing dorky games. in fact today we sat in the sun, drank some brews on ghetto folding chairs, and ordered chinese delivery, it was a fabulous day, capped off with some basketball now that it's getting chilly with the sun down... a perfect date :)

dates with the SO are a necessity! we do it all the time. Honestly, the boy isn't as excited about it in general, or I guess just doesn't see the need for it... but for me, it's a MUST. It just is this stupid way to make something feel special, and after three years, it's helped keep things exciting. We still feel like we're dating and that's fantastic (and hopefully what's going to help carry us through LS)... we'll see each other a lot less during LS, so it's gotta be quality time, which means "dating" and well, the other stuff, too  :o

I was a participant in one of the largest studies on IQ/breastfeeding correlation when I was younger! but I'm not telling which one I was an example of...

I would say in general theaters need some audience control.
We once went to a movie and everyone in the theater was an adult (no kids, no teens) The people would not STFU during the entire movie. It was so horrible we complained to the management.

And there is almost always some silly girl in super high heels that babbles throughout the movie. Sometimes they come in pairs.

those girls... the only thing worse is when they chat AND text through the whole thing-- with the beeping sounds and bright screen glowing. I want to break the phones right then and there... a theater vigilante!

part of the ridiculousness of this bill is that it was specifically for breastfeeding babies... b/c others could find sitters, that is stupid.
also, it wasn't saying that babies couldn't be in theaters, just that they were being charged and now they'd be free... I sort of agree that charging a full price ticket for a baby is silly anyway.
My parents took me to stuff all the time, including live theater, and I was taught from a very young age (not a baby, but as soon as I could understand) that I didn't make a noise, and things were fine. Parental responsibility is a topic for a whole 'nother thread...

and stanley, this was from way back in the thread, but thanks for sending my puppy some love :) We are getting another one on wednesday! but we are getting him a little older, so we'll never have him at this stage... but he's cute, too :) (and I am bummed that I can't take THEM to theaters! now that would be fun)
