WestTx- My best friend just got back and her pictures are gorgeous. She said the same thing about not going off the resort. I've heard of a lot of vacation spots like that though.

1.- I agree. Miami is the worst airport I've ever been in.

2.- WestTx, I am infintely jealous that you went to Turks and Caicos.

3.- Do you think I can write a letter to SW begging them to fly from PGH to Lubbock? AA is the only airline we've found that doesn't cost over $500. I'm starting to think if I fly AA I won't make it home for Christmas...

mek, don't hold me to this, but I would assume that your complete finaid package would be disbursed since they are disbursed minus any charges. However, I don't know when the cutoff is for charges one owes, i.e. if you pay with a CC on Saturday, and finaid is disbursed on Monday, then the amount disbursed could reflect a deduction for the tuition owed. In this scenario, I think that you would get your tuition refund after the final add/drop day (the 12th class day at my UG).

Good idea on the miles as long as you can time it so you'll get your finaid within the grace period. You'll be rolling in the upgrades.

Hmmmm... I may have to consider this seriously -- 13,000 miles/year is a chunk -- almost a free ticket to Dallas (15,000 miles on AA shorthaul awards specials)...

I would avoid AA out here and stick with Southwest...my wife flew AA twice, and both times were a disaster (cancelled flights, luggage held for later plane) - Southwest has been much better, and I have used them several times travelling between here and DFW...

We flew AA when I went down to look for apartments because it's the cheapest and someone hit the plane with the baggage cart so our flight was delayed an hour, then we missed our connector and ended up being almost 3 hours late getting to Lubbock. I would love to know how you hit a big plane with a tiny little baggage cart. It's not like it could have been in a blind spot or something...

I think even if I didn't want to go to the boot camp (whch I do) I would go just to be able to tell my friends law school HAS a boot camp. :)

And the whole credit card/airline miles thing sounds appealing... Anything is better than almost $500 to get home for holidays. I think the "wtf was I thinking going to law school 24 hours from home" feeling is setting in now that I have 3 weeks until I move.

I'm still waiting too. I have no idea how I'm going to pay my tuition until my loans go through. My UG school didn't require that.

Humidity is only 60% here right now. That's low for us. 2 days ago it was 83%. I think on top of being excited about law school, I'm excited for lower humidity. It's so much easier to breathe. :)

and we sound like we're 70 years old talking about the weather.. Sorry guys, thats my fault..

Thanks Mek :)

haha the city I went to college in has an average of 205 cloudy days per year and 123 days below freezing. I never realized it was that depressing.

mek, congratulations! Good luck to you, your wife and your son as you prepare for your new arrival.

GU, really, I wouldn't mind if I had my assignments soon. I'm going to be sitting around our house for two weeks while the wife works, and I'd like to have something to do besides sit around and watch "Days of our Lives."

Not me.. I think that's just getting a head start on getting burned out. The novels I wouldn't mind, but the case briefs can wait until school starts.
What good does a novel do for your law school education?  That sounds like irrelevant coursework to me.

Possibly the reason Duq. is having trouble with their bar passage rate? Who knows...


I have a weather related question... Does anyone happen to know the average humidity there? My friend is a little slow and I'm trying to explain the difference between LBK heat and PGH heat and she's not getting it.
